I’m not sure how I found Nobody’s Sweetheart Now. Maybe it was a Facebook ad. Maybe it was a Kindle Unlimited ad. But at the time that I read it, it was available on Kindle Unlimited unlike now.
Lady Adelaide Compton is a newly minted widow. Her husband Major Rupert Compton, hero of the Somme, died in a car crash with a French mademoiselle in the passenger seat. Yes, he was cheating on her!
After her mourning period is over (yes, she’s British so they have a mourning period!), Addie decides to host a small dinner party. Guess who makes a surprise appearance? Addie’s late husband- Rupert! He’s a ghost obviously, but still, nobody can see him but Addie.
Brief Summary (while trying not to give everything away)
In Nobody’s Sweetheart Now, Rupert must make amends, which leads to him trying to help Addie solve the murder that has happened during her dinner party (read weekend party)! Enter Inspector Devenand Hunter of New Scotland Yard. Addie must find the killer. Will Dev be able to help her?
While I thought this story was good while on Kindle Unlimited, I’m not sure that it’s worthy enough to buy outright for $7.99. I don’t really remember who did it (I did read this in May and it’s now September). It doesn’t stand out, but I know that I thought well enough of it to give it four stars and want to write about it. So if you like cozy mysteries set in England (especially right after World War I), then you’ll want to try this one.

My plan for 2022 is to write three blog posts a week- one about a fantasy book, one about a mystery book, and one about a romance book (with some posts about series thrown in). This one is a mystery so if you’re a mystery lover, then you’ll want to check it out!
