Professional reviews

"Narrator Anne-Marie Piazza transports listeners to Mrs. Holloway's kitchen in a mansion in the rich district of Mayfair, London, 1881. There we follow Mrs. Holloway's employment as head cook, along with her adventures with the enigmatic Daniel McAdam and the adventurous Lady Cynthia as they hunt down thieves and a murderer. Piazza deftly shifts among the various accents of the working and upper classes, which convey much about their individual characters and about the people of Victorian England in general. In addition, Piazza cleverly uses pacing to add to the drama, making this audiobook an enjoyable listen. V.M.G. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine"
