    One thought on “The Problem at Two Tithes

    1. Rosemary on said:

      I can't even begin to explain what a delight this series is. If you're a fan of British Golden Age mysteries, but find Miss Marple a bore, please check out these books, which were written in the 1920s and 30s but only discovered by the author's family after her death in the 1960s. The detective figure, Angela Marchmont, has recently returned to England after living in the United States for many years, sans her American husbandd what happened to him is an ongoing mystery through the series, since [...]

      We learn a lot more about Angela's past as we visit her childhood home, meet her stuffy family, and tackle a murder where the obvious suspect is quickly eliminated, but no-one is very keen on bringing the murder home to the next-most obvious people.One of the things I like about this series is the time and sympathy it gives to characters who are often considered uninteresting, such as the murdered man's wife.

      Country life can be murderI've enjoyed this series from the very first. Each installment gets better. In The Problem at Two Tithes we get the opportunity to get to know more about Angela and her family. When an old feud results in the death of of one of the participants suspicions falls on the his counterpart. But when he has a solid alibi, the next to be arrested is a member of Angela's family. Suddenly Angela is in the middle of another murder mystery that is very close to home. The usual char [...]

      Another fun and easy read! I have been enjoying the Marchmont series, and this one was no different. It was comical to see the situations she got her self into even when she tried to be on her best behavior. It gave the series a nice change of pace, as opposed to her diving right in to solve the mystery.

    5. Maureen Hetzel on said:

      Love how Angela gets around to different locales which gives the author free rein to develop colorful local characters to meld with "the regulars".

    6. Whistlers Mom on said:

      After a long absence, Angela has reluctantly returned to the village of Banford Green, where the Cardews have occupied "Two Tithes" for several centuries. The lovely old home is now owned by Sir Humphrey Cardew (Angela's pompous windbag brother) and his awful wife Elizabeth. Having successfully avoided each other for years, the siblings meet with a great show of good manners and even greater mutual irritation. In 1920's England, there are still places where a woman can cause a scandal by CROSSIN [...]

      Another bundle of fun in the Angela Marchmont series of murder mysteries set in the twenties. This is the seventh, and the author is absolutely on top form. After the wonderful outing in Italy in The Imbroglio at the Villa Pozzi, here we are back in the heart of England, at the very respectable village home of Angela’s brother, Sir Humphrew Cardew and his wife Elisabeth, two of the most pompous, stuffy and dull people imaginable. They disapprove of Angela and everything about her, and although [...]

      Angela Marchmont is paying a delayed visit to her brother and sister in law. Sir Humphrey Cardew is as unlike his sister as it is possible to be and several people during the course of this story remark upon the fact. Angela feels her temper is going to be sorely tried during her visit though things start to look up when a local farmer is found shot dead in the woods. Inspector Alec Jameson is staying in the neighbourhood and agrees to help the local police. He is an old friend of Angela's as we [...]

    9. Martyn on said:

      This was an easy, okay read but disappointing in too many ways. I found most of the characterisation quite thin, including Angela Marchmont, but my main gripe is that it doesn't really feel like "An Angela Marchmont Mystery' anyway. She spends most of the book avoiding getting involved in the crime. Real policemen investigate the murder for 3/4 of the book, and I thought the romance angle involving one of them was handled in a half-hearted way.This was my first Clara Benson book. I may give anot [...]

    10. Marley on said:

      I'm really loving the Angela Marchmont series. It's been a treat to watch the author's writing skills and plots evolve--not to mention character development. I liked the first installment and decided to try the second and beforeo I knew it I was reading them all in order. This time around we get a peak at Angela's family, her compliant,stuffy Labour Party apparatchik brother Humphrey, his boring wife, an "interetsing MIL, and a grand cast of truly interesting side characters. Best of all, I was [...]

    11. Susan on said:

      This is classic British crime fiction and is readable enough, but hardly in the category of Sayers or Christie. What I liked best about the story is that it revealed that life in a small village is not all that it is cracked up to be, especially for the women. Angela Marchmont has freed herself from this stultifying habitat and on a reluctant visit to her old home has promised to avoid sleuthing. However, when a neighboring farmer is blasted with a shotgun and the local police are obviously on t [...]

      Since I read this immediately following Benson's exciting and romantic novel set in Italy's Lakes District, I wasn't quite so enamored with this one. However, in spite of promising her brother not to get involved in any murders while she is visiting their quiet family home, she is immediately faced with a dead body practically in her backyard. How she goes about solving the mystery while keeping her stuffy brother and sister-in-law happy makes for a bit of fun. Another good read.

    13. Elisa on said:

      Another delightful whodunit from Clara Benson. Not only do I love the mysteries, I adore the descriptions of how ladies of leisure from the beginning of the XX century lived, traveled, had tea, dressed, talked If I ever get a TARDIS, I am traveling to hang out with Angela Marchmont, even if the body count around her is so high. Also, is it weird that I have a crush on William, her American driver? I love these books!

    14. Debbie on said:

      Another wonderful instalment in the delightful Angela Marchmont series. This series has been such a joy to read; I love each book more as it progresses!This mystery takes place at Angela's brother's estate, and I was thrilled to see Freddy Pilkington-Soames join in another of Angela's adventures. Murder, mahem, and the wit of Ms. Clara Benson ensue as usual!

    15. Dorothy on said:

      Another fun readI like that each successive book in this collection reveals a little more about the heroine. In this one we learn about Angela's childhood and her relationship with her brother, who asks her not to get involved in any investigation during her visit. But will he change his mind when a neighbor is murdered? A very satisfying mystery.

    16. Melissainau on said:

      I really enjoy the Angela Marchmont series. This takes Angela back to her childhood home, where she has to contend with her overly proper brother & sister-in-law.

    17. Cristy Gookin on said:

      Fun and lightEnjoyed this latest one of Angela's escapades and look forward to more. Great light reading and hope that there will be more to come!

      Yet another murderGoing to visit her brother Angela stumbles onto another murder. There is love for the Inspector. Oh yes Freddy makes another appearance

    19. Sharon Upchurch on said:

      This is a pleasant read for a snowy day. In fact, I got caught up in the story enough that I stayed up too late reading to finish.
