    I?ve had the pleasure of reading all but one of the books in the Lady Montford Mystery series and they have all been wonderful reads. I love watching how Arlen?s writing has evolved over the series so far and this book was such a pleasure to read! This book really stood out to m...

    4.5 stars - I love this series, it just gets better and better! This story opens in 1916 - WWI is raging, and Lord and Lady Montfort have converted the dower house on their estate to a hospital for officers suffering from ?shell-shock?, what we now call PTSD. Mrs. Jackson, Lady Mon...

    Series: Lady Montford Mystery #4 Publication Date: 3/13/18 Well, their carefully guarded secret is out. Lady Montford and Mrs. Jackson solve mysteries, and they are very good at it! Everyone knows and smiles about it, but our erstwhile investigators aren?t aware that everyone kno...

    I never caught Downton Abbey fever, but I do find that slice of history interesting. For fans of the TV series, however,Death of an Unsung Herowould be a must read. Set in on an English manor in the early 1900's, this story revolves around a country hospital where WWI soldiers ...

    Death of an Unsung Hero by Tessa Arlen was a fascinating mystery set in England during World War I. Although this is the first book I have read in this series, I had no problems as Ms. Arlen provided the background of each of the characters and there were only slight references to the ...

    "What a tale! What a frightful story of betrayal and cowardice." Apparently, my infatuation with "all things Downton Abbey" hasn't fizzled out yet. Edwardian England glamour has still a strong hold on my reading preferences: my expectations in terms of authenticity of historical set...

    I?ve loved all the novels in Tessa Arlen?s Downtonesque Murder Mystery series. Like its predecessors, DEATH OF AN UNSUNG HERO has a gripping plot that keeps you turning pages, much gorgeous writing ? I particularly enjoyed the descriptions of the English countryside in summer ?...

    Lady Montfort is quickly becoming one of my favorite series. As with the others in the series, this book too is well written, and well researched. The two main characters, Lady Montfort and Mrs. Jackson are wonderful. They're not young, they have believable connections, and more import...

    Arlen's series, the Lady Montford Mysteries, is a sheer delight, and this new story is the best yet. Arlen aptly mixes upstairs and downstairs at a critical period of societal flux. Lady Montford and her capable partner, housekeeper Mrs. Jackson, are now involved in the new role of the...

    If you enjoy historical mysteries, especially those set in England, this series is not to be missed. This is the fourth entry and the time is 1916. Private residences are being offered as hospitals for the wounded but, in this case, the wounds are not on the outside and that is the foc...

    First book I have read in this series. This one is set in mid-WW1, in a "Downton Abbey" world, where officers with shell shock are being treated in the Dower House. Murder of one of them, in the straited situation of few qualified policemen, as well as few servants & farm workers, ...

    I gave this book four stars because the author always manages to surprise me in solving the mystery detailed so well in this book. I was positive I had solved ?who done it? before I was even halfway through the book. In fact, I was slightly bored and feeling superior because I thou...

    In 1916 little was understood of the nature of ptsd or ?shell shock? as it was called. In Death of an Unsung Hero, the plot centers around a group of young officers being treated at a hospital sponsored by the energetic Lady Montfort and administered by her capable friend, Mrs....

    One of the better historical novels I've read. ...

    Solid fourth entry in the Lady Montfort series. The tale dragged a bit in the middle but redeemed itself with plenty of twisty final revelations. I enjoy the time period and English setting. ...

    Another good entry in the Lady Montfort/Mrs. Jackson mystery series. War has come to Iyntwood, and with it, big changes. Mrs. Jackson is now in the VAD and assigned as quartermaster at the Haversham Hall hospital, the dower house at Iyntwood. The hospital has been set up by the Earl of...

    This is yet another delightful installment of the Lady Montfort mystery series by gifted writer Tessa Arlen. I love books based on historical fact where the author does a goodly amount of research. This one certainly did not disappoint. I look forward to reading more stories by Ms. Arl...

    This engaging tale, of murder done at a WWI convalescent hospital, is thoroughly entertaining. Our lades from the series are back, Lady Montfort and Mrs. Jackson. Mrs. Jackson doesn't seem quite as reticent as previously, and so our intrepid duo sit, compare their notes and impressions...

    This is a wonderful WWI mystery novel. This is the first one that I have read in this series but it was okay because I was able to figure out who all the people were in this series. I really loved Lady Montfort and Mrs. Jackson. They are great at solving mysteries. I look forward to re...

    I haven't read the other 3 books in the series but I definitely will be! I love a good cozy mystery and this series is definitely one!! This story picks back up in WWI England, where Lady Montfort and Mrs Jackson (her partner in crime, pardon the pun) are solving mysteries. Accordin...

    This is probably my favorite so far! This time around, two years since the last book, war is raging on. Lady Montfort decides to put her house in Haversham for war use, much to the chagrin of her neighbors and friends because the house offers aids to those who are facing the aftereffec...

    I won this one in a Goodreads giveaway which in no way influenced my review. I was at a slight disadvantage having not read the first three books but as it often is with mysteries, you can drop in later in the series and pick it up fast. Lady Monfort, Clementine, has turned part of ...

    3.75 stars This third Lady Montfort mystery is set in 1916, two years into the Great War. The last book ended with the declaration of war in 1914, and lots has happened offstage. Lady Montfort's son Harry, a pilot, has been injured and is home recuperating. Her daughter Verity, in F...

    Shades of Downton Abbey meets WW I: As was the trend in England; Lady & Earl of Monfort have turned the recently emptied Dower House, Haversham Hall, into an auxiliary hospital for English WW I officers suffering from what was then known as "shell-shock" & "neurasthenia". ...

    Princess Fuzzypants here: The carnage of WWI was the first modern war. The battles were different and changed the face of warfare forever. WWI also changed many things, including the role of women in society and the way people thought about a great many things. Some embraced the chang...

    I'm always surprised by the social history that's finely woven into the Lady Montfort series. And this one is my favorite of the four so far: Because the author is a rather close personal (spousal) friend of mine, I get the opportunity to hear various aspects of the story as they...

    I received a digital copy of this book from Netgalley/the publisher in exchange for an honest review. Full review coming closer to publication date. I would recommend Death of an Unsung Hero. I think this book- and the series as a whole- would appeal to fans of Downton Abbey; there...

    I liked this one- have to read the other Lady Montfort mysteries. Little editing miss on pg. 256 in my copy where Clementine hands over her empty glass after sipping lemonade but then puts down a half-full glass because it is too sweet. I might have given it 4 stars except that I figur...

    4.5 stars - I love this series, it just gets better and better! This story opens in 1916 - WWI is raging, and Lord and Lady Montfort have converted the dower house on their estate to a hospital for officers suffering from ?shell-shock?, what we now call PTSD. Mrs. Jackson, Lady Mon...

    Series: Lady Montford Mystery #4 Publication Date: 3/13/18 Well, their carefully guarded secret is out. Lady Montford and Mrs. Jackson solve mysteries, and they are very good at it! Everyone knows and smiles about it, but our erstwhile investigators aren?t aware that everyone kno...

    I never caught Downton Abbey fever, but I do find that slice of history interesting. For fans of the TV series, however,Death of an Unsung Herowould be a must read. Set in on an English manor in the early 1900's, this story revolves around a country hospital where WWI soldiers ...

    Death of an Unsung Hero by Tessa Arlen was a fascinating mystery set in England during World War I. Although this is the first book I have read in this series, I had no problems as Ms. Arlen provided the background of each of the characters and there were only slight references to the ...

    "What a tale! What a frightful story of betrayal and cowardice." Apparently, my infatuation with "all things Downton Abbey" hasn't fizzled out yet. Edwardian England glamour has still a strong hold on my reading preferences: my expectations in terms of authenticity of historical set...

    I?ve loved all the novels in Tessa Arlen?s Downtonesque Murder Mystery series. Like its predecessors, DEATH OF AN UNSUNG HERO has a gripping plot that keeps you turning pages, much gorgeous writing ? I particularly enjoyed the descriptions of the English countryside in summer ?...

    Lady Montfort is quickly becoming one of my favorite series. As with the others in the series, this book too is well written, and well researched. The two main characters, Lady Montfort and Mrs. Jackson are wonderful. They're not young, they have believable connections, and more import...

    Arlen's series, the Lady Montford Mysteries, is a sheer delight, and this new story is the best yet. Arlen aptly mixes upstairs and downstairs at a critical period of societal flux. Lady Montford and her capable partner, housekeeper Mrs. Jackson, are now involved in the new role of the...

    If you enjoy historical mysteries, especially those set in England, this series is not to be missed. This is the fourth entry and the time is 1916. Private residences are being offered as hospitals for the wounded but, in this case, the wounds are not on the outside and that is the foc...

    First book I have read in this series. This one is set in mid-WW1, in a "Downton Abbey" world, where officers with shell shock are being treated in the Dower House. Murder of one of them, in the straited situation of few qualified policemen, as well as few servants & farm workers, ...

    I gave this book four stars because the author always manages to surprise me in solving the mystery detailed so well in this book. I was positive I had solved ?who done it? before I was even halfway through the book. In fact, I was slightly bored and feeling superior because I thou...

    In 1916 little was understood of the nature of ptsd or ?shell shock? as it was called. In Death of an Unsung Hero, the plot centers around a group of young officers being treated at a hospital sponsored by the energetic Lady Montfort and administered by her capable friend, Mrs....

    One of the better historical novels I've read. ...

    Solid fourth entry in the Lady Montfort series. The tale dragged a bit in the middle but redeemed itself with plenty of twisty final revelations. I enjoy the time period and English setting. ...

    Another good entry in the Lady Montfort/Mrs. Jackson mystery series. War has come to Iyntwood, and with it, big changes. Mrs. Jackson is now in the VAD and assigned as quartermaster at the Haversham Hall hospital, the dower house at Iyntwood. The hospital has been set up by the Earl of...

    This is yet another delightful installment of the Lady Montfort mystery series by gifted writer Tessa Arlen. I love books based on historical fact where the author does a goodly amount of research. This one certainly did not disappoint. I look forward to reading more stories by Ms. Arl...

    I?ve loved all the novels in Tessa Arlen?s Downtonesque Murder Mystery series. Like its predecessors, DEATH OF AN UNSUNG HERO has a gripping plot that keeps you turning pages, much gorgeous writing ? I particularly enjoyed the descriptions of the English countryside in summer ?...

    Lady Montfort is quickly becoming one of my favorite series. As with the others in the series, this book too is well written, and well researched. The two main characters, Lady Montfort and Mrs. Jackson are wonderful. They're not young, they have believable connections, and more import...

    Arlen's series, the Lady Montford Mysteries, is a sheer delight, and this new story is the best yet. Arlen aptly mixes upstairs and downstairs at a critical period of societal flux. Lady Montford and her capable partner, housekeeper Mrs. Jackson, are now involved in the new role of the...

    If you enjoy historical mysteries, especially those set in England, this series is not to be missed. This is the fourth entry and the time is 1916. Private residences are being offered as hospitals for the wounded but, in this case, the wounds are not on the outside and that is the foc...

    First book I have read in this series. This one is set in mid-WW1, in a "Downton Abbey" world, where officers with shell shock are being treated in the Dower House. Murder of one of them, in the straited situation of few qualified policemen, as well as few servants & farm workers, ...

    I gave this book four stars because the author always manages to surprise me in solving the mystery detailed so well in this book. I was positive I had solved ?who done it? before I was even halfway through the book. In fact, I was slightly bored and feeling superior because I thou...

    In 1916 little was understood of the nature of ptsd or ?shell shock? as it was called. In Death of an Unsung Hero, the plot centers around a group of young officers being treated at a hospital sponsored by the energetic Lady Montfort and administered by her capable friend, Mrs....

    One of the better historical novels I've read. ...

    Solid fourth entry in the Lady Montfort series. The tale dragged a bit in the middle but redeemed itself with plenty of twisty final revelations. I enjoy the time period and English setting. ...

    Another good entry in the Lady Montfort/Mrs. Jackson mystery series. War has come to Iyntwood, and with it, big changes. Mrs. Jackson is now in the VAD and assigned as quartermaster at the Haversham Hall hospital, the dower house at Iyntwood. The hospital has been set up by the Earl of...

    This is yet another delightful installment of the Lady Montfort mystery series by gifted writer Tessa Arlen. I love books based on historical fact where the author does a goodly amount of research. This one certainly did not disappoint. I look forward to reading more stories by Ms. Arl...

    This engaging tale, of murder done at a WWI convalescent hospital, is thoroughly entertaining. Our lades from the series are back, Lady Montfort and Mrs. Jackson. Mrs. Jackson doesn't seem quite as reticent as previously, and so our intrepid duo sit, compare their notes and impressions...

    This is probably my favorite so far! This time around, two years since the last book, war is raging on. Lady Montfort decides to put her house in Haversham for war use, much to the chagrin of her neighbors and friends because the house offers aids to those who are facing the aftereffec...

    I won this one in a Goodreads giveaway which in no way influenced my review. I was at a slight disadvantage having not read the first three books but as it often is with mysteries, you can drop in later in the series and pick it up fast. Lady Monfort, Clementine, has turned part of ...

    3.75 stars This third Lady Montfort mystery is set in 1916, two years into the Great War. The last book ended with the declaration of war in 1914, and lots has happened offstage. Lady Montfort's son Harry, a pilot, has been injured and is home recuperating. Her daughter Verity, in F...

    In 1916 little was understood of the nature of ptsd or ?shell shock? as it was called. In Death of an Unsung Hero, the plot centers around a group of young officers being treated at a hospital sponsored by the energetic Lady Montfort and administered by her capable friend, Mrs....

    One of the better historical novels I've read. ...

    Solid fourth entry in the Lady Montfort series. The tale dragged a bit in the middle but redeemed itself with plenty of twisty final revelations. I enjoy the time period and English setting. ...

    Another good entry in the Lady Montfort/Mrs. Jackson mystery series. War has come to Iyntwood, and with it, big changes. Mrs. Jackson is now in the VAD and assigned as quartermaster at the Haversham Hall hospital, the dower house at Iyntwood. The hospital has been set up by the Earl of...

    This is yet another delightful installment of the Lady Montfort mystery series by gifted writer Tessa Arlen. I love books based on historical fact where the author does a goodly amount of research. This one certainly did not disappoint. I look forward to reading more stories by Ms. Arl...

    This engaging tale, of murder done at a WWI convalescent hospital, is thoroughly entertaining. Our lades from the series are back, Lady Montfort and Mrs. Jackson. Mrs. Jackson doesn't seem quite as reticent as previously, and so our intrepid duo sit, compare their notes and impressions...

    This is a wonderful WWI mystery novel. This is the first one that I have read in this series but it was okay because I was able to figure out who all the people were in this series. I really loved Lady Montfort and Mrs. Jackson. They are great at solving mysteries. I look forward to re...

    I haven't read the other 3 books in the series but I definitely will be! I love a good cozy mystery and this series is definitely one!! This story picks back up in WWI England, where Lady Montfort and Mrs Jackson (her partner in crime, pardon the pun) are solving mysteries. Accordin...

    This is probably my favorite so far! This time around, two years since the last book, war is raging on. Lady Montfort decides to put her house in Haversham for war use, much to the chagrin of her neighbors and friends because the house offers aids to those who are facing the aftereffec...

    I won this one in a Goodreads giveaway which in no way influenced my review. I was at a slight disadvantage having not read the first three books but as it often is with mysteries, you can drop in later in the series and pick it up fast. Lady Monfort, Clementine, has turned part of ...

    3.75 stars This third Lady Montfort mystery is set in 1916, two years into the Great War. The last book ended with the declaration of war in 1914, and lots has happened offstage. Lady Montfort's son Harry, a pilot, has been injured and is home recuperating. Her daughter Verity, in F...

    Shades of Downton Abbey meets WW I: As was the trend in England; Lady & Earl of Monfort have turned the recently emptied Dower House, Haversham Hall, into an auxiliary hospital for English WW I officers suffering from what was then known as "shell-shock" & "neurasthenia". ...

    Princess Fuzzypants here: The carnage of WWI was the first modern war. The battles were different and changed the face of warfare forever. WWI also changed many things, including the role of women in society and the way people thought about a great many things. Some embraced the chang...

    I'm always surprised by the social history that's finely woven into the Lady Montfort series. And this one is my favorite of the four so far: Because the author is a rather close personal (spousal) friend of mine, I get the opportunity to hear various aspects of the story as they...

    I?ve had the pleasure of reading all but one of the books in the Lady Montford Mystery series and they have all been wonderful reads. I love watching how Arlen?s writing has evolved over the series so far and this book was such a pleasure to read! This book really stood out to m...

    4.5 stars - I love this series, it just gets better and better! This story opens in 1916 - WWI is raging, and Lord and Lady Montfort have converted the dower house on their estate to a hospital for officers suffering from ?shell-shock?, what we now call PTSD. Mrs. Jackson, Lady Mon...

    Series: Lady Montford Mystery #4 Publication Date: 3/13/18 Well, their carefully guarded secret is out. Lady Montford and Mrs. Jackson solve mysteries, and they are very good at it! Everyone knows and smiles about it, but our erstwhile investigators aren?t aware that everyone kno...

    I never caught Downton Abbey fever, but I do find that slice of history interesting. For fans of the TV series, however,Death of an Unsung Herowould be a must read. Set in on an English manor in the early 1900's, this story revolves around a country hospital where WWI soldiers ...

    "What a tale! What a frightful story of betrayal and cowardice." Apparently, my infatuation with "all things Downton Abbey" hasn't fizzled out yet. Edwardian England glamour has still a strong hold on my reading preferences: my expectations in terms of authenticity of historical set...

    I?ve loved all the novels in Tessa Arlen?s Downtonesque Murder Mystery series. Like its predecessors, DEATH OF AN UNSUNG HERO has a gripping plot that keeps you turning pages, much gorgeous writing ? I particularly enjoyed the descriptions of the English countryside in summer ?...

    Lady Montfort is quickly becoming one of my favorite series. As with the others in the series, this book too is well written, and well researched. The two main characters, Lady Montfort and Mrs. Jackson are wonderful. They're not young, they have believable connections, and more import...

    Arlen's series, the Lady Montford Mysteries, is a sheer delight, and this new story is the best yet. Arlen aptly mixes upstairs and downstairs at a critical period of societal flux. Lady Montford and her capable partner, housekeeper Mrs. Jackson, are now involved in the new role of the...

    If you enjoy historical mysteries, especially those set in England, this series is not to be missed. This is the fourth entry and the time is 1916. Private residences are being offered as hospitals for the wounded but, in this case, the wounds are not on the outside and that is the foc...
