Amory Ames is a wealthy young woman who regrets her marriage to her notoriously charming playboy husband, Milo. Looking for a change, she accepts a request for help from her former fiancE, Gil Trent, not knowing that she'll soon become embroiled in a murder investigation that will test not only her friendship with Gil, but will upset the status quo with her husband. Amory accompanies Gil to the Brightwell Hotel in an attempt to circumvent the marriage of his sister, Emmeline, to Rupert Howe, a disreputable ladies' man. Amory sees in the situation a grim reflection of her own floundering marriage. There is more than her happiness at stake, however, when Rupert is murdered and Gil is arrested for the crime. Amory is determined to prove his innocence and find the real killer, despite attempted dissuasion from the disapproving police inspector on the case. Matters are further complicated by Milo's unexpected arrival, and the two form an uneasy alliance as Amory enlists his reluctant aid in clearing Gil's name. As the stakes grow higher and the line between friend and foe becomes less clear, Amory must decide where her heart lies and catch the killer before she, too, becomes a victim. Ashley Weaver's Murder at the Brightwell is a delicious mystery in which murder invades polite society and romance springs in unexpected places.

Professional reviews

"What happens to lovely Amory Ames when she realizes she is unhappily married to her wealthy lady killer husband and then finds herself in the midst of a murder investigation? British narrator, Karen Cass portrays a cast of diversified characters, including Amory seeking solace from an old flame at his sister's wedding at the English seaside Brightwell Hotel. When the groom is murdered, Cass turns up the action with high energy capturing the tension felt by the quirky guests, all suspects, as they are interrogated. Cass is delightful, painting vivid images of each character. She interprets Amory's emotional struggle with her old flame as the icy wall between she and husband begins to thaw. Especially charming is her interpretation of Amory's witty husband--very Cary Grant. Eccentric suspects, a man falsely accused and a husband and wife sleuth team in the search of a killer all makes for quite a riveting ride told by a skilled story teller.
