Finding Philippe,

A new vintage mystery by Elizabeth Edmondson.

Finding Phil TwitPic3

From fog-bound London to sun-drenched France…

1947. Exasperated by her tyrannical family, Vicky escapes from rationing and austerity Britain and flees to the south of France.
But she’s not there just for the glorious food, wine and sunshine: she has an inheritance to claim, and a mystery to solve.
Can she find her wartime husband, Philippe d’Icère? Is he alive or dead? A hero or a traitor?  An imposter, or a true Frenchman?
Do the answers lie in the Languedoc village of St Aphrodise, where danger lurks in the ancient streets?
How can she be sure who’s a loyal friend and who a bitter enemy?
Vicky seems destined to fail—or will she, in the end, find out the truth about Philippe?


Finding Philippe is available on Amazon US and Amazon UK.

Scandal and Gossip

By | Blog, Edmondson | No Comments

New Release — A Question of Inheritance is out now.

This is the second book in the Very English Mysteries series, following the Amazon bestselling British historical mystery A Man of Some Repute, and the novella A Youthful Indiscretion.


December 1953

Hugo Hawksworth is on the tail of rogue Cold War agents at a top-secret government facility, while back home at Selchester Castle they’re awaiting the arrival of the new Earl—an American, the long-lost son of the murdered Lord Selchester.

The town of Selchester, rich in scandal and gossip, is unsure what to make of the Earl or his teenage daughters, but they know that his sharp-tongued half-sister, Lady Sonia, furious at being deprived of her inheritance, won’t be a merry guest over Christmas.

The new Lord Selchester can cope with the strangeness of English country life, but he hadn’t expected stolen paintings—or a body in the hothouse.

What’s the link between Hugo’s investigations and the suspicious goings-on in the town and at the Castle? And will he and his allies get to the heart of the mystery before the murderer gets to them?


Read it on Kindle at Amazon UK or Amazon US.
