The Pigeon Pie Mystery, by Julia Stuart
The mystery of the death by pigeon pie takes place in Victorian England in Hampton Court Palace, where a number of eccentric members of British society have been granted grace-and-favor homes, including Princess Alexandrina, who was left homeless and destitute after the death of her father the Maharaja of Brindor. Mink, as she is called, must investigate a death by arsenic poisoning to save her maid-of-all-work, Pooki, from being arrested. Light and airy.
