Priceless artwork has gone missing from the home of a wealthy baronet, and his wife stands to take the blame. When Kat's employer asks for help in clearing her friend's name, Kat trades her kitchen for the homes of Mayfair's wealthiest families. Soon antiques are disappearing not only from the extravagant households of connoisseurs and collectors, but from the illustrious British Museum. As the thefts increase in frequency, Kat calls upon her friend Daniel McAdam, who has already set himself up in a pawnshop on the Strand as a seedy receiver of stolen goods. When a man is murdered in the shop, Kat must use all of her wits to see that the thieves are caught and justice is done....

I really enjoy these books. Jennifer Ashley is such a talented writer in so many genres. In this particular series, you can practically hear Kat Halloway speaking through the words on the page. Wonderful.
I liked this second installment even better than the first (even though it made me constantly hungry. The dangers in reading a book about a cook!). In the first installment, we got to meet a lot of great secondary characters in James, Cynthia, and Thanos. Scandal Above Stairs built on those characters and added in Tess, someone I loved from the first instant she stepped on the page. Even though I love Daniel and Kat, watching Tess and Kat’s relationship grow throughout this book was on ...more
2.5 stars - overall rating should be two stars, but I'm still hoping the series will get better and decided to give it the benefit of the doubt.
This is one of those books/series in which I love the premise, but the execution has much to be desired. The mystery is once again a bit weak and the investigation had me rolling my eyes at times. Everything just felt so lame...
I really like Kat's character, but I don't see why people respect her opinion so much in matters of intrigue. She's intelligent ...more
Scandal Above Stairs was just as fun as the first one though I must say I could have used more banter between Kat and Daniel!
Things below stairs is in a bit of a state as they are understaffed and it seems that Kat, the cook and Mr. Davis the Butler are trying to make up for the fact they have no housekeeper. This means they have to try and manage the downstairs and Kat is also in need of an assistant cook. Even with all of these she still manages to keep things flowing pretty good. Then Lady Cy ...more
This series has been so good! I can't wait for the next book!
READ MY REVIEW ON THE BLOG
In the second installment cook and hobby sleuth Kat Holloway is intrigued by a series of burglaries in noble houses where antiquities have been stolen. At her side again her merry band of sidekicks. I love every single one of them. They are colorful, unique and a little eccentric.
In Scandal Above Stairs we are being introduced to a new character, Tess, who fits well into Kat's group of friends. Although Tess was a little prickly in the beginning I enjoyed the developing ...more
Lady Cynthia asks for Kat's help when her friend's husband accuses his wife of stealing valuable paintings from their ancestral home to pay off gambling debts. That is quite the switch, No? When she bumps into Daniel he is working at an unsavory pawnshop. Once again he cannot tell her what he is doing, but when she shares her kitchen woes, he sends a clever street urchin, named Tess. I liked Tess and hope she continues to be a part of the series.
In this installment local homes are being pilfered ...more
