Murder at Elm House
is the 6th book in Helena Dixon's Miss Underhay Mystery series. While I have read the two previous books in the series, this can be read on its own (but if you have the time, why not indulge in the whole series?). 

Kitty and Matt have quickly become one of my favorite cozy mystery couples. While Matt is a professional private investigator, it is usually Kitty who stumbles upon the dangerous and clandestine mysteries. Mrs. Craven, who in previous books has delighted in assisting with the investigations, is sure something underhanded is going on at Elm House, the convalesces home she is staying at while recovering from foot surgery. She knows that Matt and Kitty will get to the bottom of it. But it turns out to be much more complicated than simple murder for money.

I thought Murder at Elm House was a bit darker than the previous books I've read but there were plenty of fun moments, too. Kitty is finally getting her driving lessons, Matt and Kitty go on a date or two, and even Alice seems to have a budding romance. 

Overall, it was a fun adventure that would make for excellent vacation reading.
