villapozzi Elizabeth’s latest Audible release is the sixth book in the Angela Marchmont Mystery series by Clara Benson: The Imbroglio at the Villa Pozzi. Elizabeth has narrated the previous books in this 1920s British mystery series as well – go to Audible to see them all!

While holidaying in Italy, Angela Marchmont is persuaded to postpone her trip to Venice and go to Stresa instead, to investigate a pair of spiritualists who are suspected of defrauding some of the town’s English residents out of their money. But what starts out as a minor matter swiftly becomes more serious when one of the residents in question is found dead in the beautiful gardens of his home, having apparently committed suicide.

Seduced by the heady sights and scents of the Italian lakes and distracted by an unexpected encounter with an old adversary who seems bent on provoking her, Angela sets out to find out the truth of the affair and resume her journey to Venice before she forgets herself and loses her head… and her heart.

This follows on the release of the previous book in the series, also narrated by Elizabeth: The Mystery at Underwood House. Benson’s mysteries are delightful British period creations, and have met with enthuasiastic reveiws at Audible. A five-star review of The Treasure at Poldarrow Point notes, “Her books are very witty and clever and great fun to listen to. They make you feel like you have gone back to an elegant era. Angela Marchmont is a great character and I enjoyed the addition of her unusual ward Barbara. The mysteries are always complex and layered, but not far-fetched. The narrator does an excellent job with both male and female characters. She uses many different voices all very appropriate.”

When Angela Marchmont goes to Cornwall on doctor’s orders she is looking forward to a nice rest and nothing more exciting than a little sea-bathing.

Aided by the house’s elderly owner, an irrepressible 12-year-old, and a handsome Scotland Yard detective, Angela soon finds herself embroiled in the most perplexing of mysteries. Who is the author of the anonymous letters? Why is someone breaking into the house at night? And is it really true that a notorious jewel thief is after the treasure too?
