The Essence of Malice by Ashley Weaver
Set in Europe during the 1930s, The Essence of Malice by Ashley Weaver is the 4th book in the Amory Ames Mystery series. Husband-wife amateur sleuthing duo, Milo and Amory Ames, receive an urgent request from Milo’s childhood nanny to investigate the suspicious death of famous Paris perfumier Helios Belanger. Everyone in this story seems to have a motive, including each of Belanger’s three children and his pretty young wife, but was he murdered? This is the question that Milo and Amory must work quickly to answer without drawing too much attention to themselves. The Essence of Malice is an easy read with an entertaining plot that I would recommend to anyone who enjoys a cozy mystery.
