Book four in the Honeychurch Hall Mystery series. This may be my favorite book of the series yet. A battle reenactment is set to happen in the area and Iris is freaking out because her publisher claims her newest manuscript never arrived even though she shipped it weeks ago. Since she insists on using an old typewriter of course she does not have a copy (which Kat harasses her about to no end saying she could at least photocopy it) so Kat has to help her hunt it down. Tracking says it never left the local post office so she goes to check. Muriel gets really upset (especially since her husband recently died) and pretty much kicks her out. The next things they known the manuscript shows up with the publisher in terrible condition and with missing pages. While their investigation continues Muriel is found dead making Kat and Iris the prime suspects though there are lots of other things coming up missing as well. Yet again the two make some of the funny decisions ever when it comes to finding out what happened and the blend of all the different characters makes for quite a fascinating story to say the least. I just love the writing style of this series and now my only regret is that I am out of more books until she writes another one. I give this one 4/5 stars.
