Publisher Description

A delightfully heartwarming and funny story that proves it's never too late to change the habits of a lifetime, perfect for fans of Judy Leigh, Hazel Prior and Maddie Please.

Something old, something new, something stolen…?

Gina Knight is looking forward to the prospect of retirement with her husband of forty-three years. Until, to her surprise, said husband decides he needs to 'find himself' – alone – and disappears to Santa Fe, leaving a Dear John letter in his wake.

Now Gina needs a new role in life, not to mention somewhere to live, so she applies for the position of Companion to elderly Dorothy Reed. At eighty-nine, ‘Dot’ needs someone to help her around the house – or at least, her family seems to think so. Her companion’s first role would be to accompany Dot for a week-long extravagant wedding party.

But when Gina arrives at the large Norfolk estate where the wedding will take place, she quickly discovers Dot has an ulterior motive for hiring her. While the other guests are busy sipping champagne and playing croquet, Dot needs Georgina to help her solve a mystery – about a missing painting, which she believes is hidden somewhere in the house.

Because, after all, who would suspect two old ladies of getting up to mischief?

Such a fun read!

Love this cozy mystery that has older ladies looking for proof that who they know must be the villain is guilty. When Dorothy’s son and daughter-in-law hires a companion for her for the week long wedding event of her grandson, she is against it. Till she finds out that Gina is a bit of an art expert. The wedding will be held at the manor house of the man she knows is the reason her beloved husband died. And with the help of Gina she will finally find justice.
I really enjoyed that the whole dun-nit was known in the beginning, but the why wasn’t. Looking forward to reading more by Kate Galley.
Thank you NetGalley for this eARC. I am voluntarily posting an honest review after reading an Advance Reader Copy of this story. #NetGalley #OldGirlsBehavingBadly #BoldwoodBooks
