MURDER IS FOR KEEPS By Elizabeth J. Duncan

29939069

A long-running cozy mystery set in the Welsh countryside. This is the second book I have read of this series, both out of order but I had no trouble following along. The Gwrych grounds are being restored after years of neglect. Volunteers are working in gardens. Penny Brannigan is painting the castle grounds for a fundraiser when she finds the body of a man. The manner of his death is undetermined. Penny and retired Inspector Gareth Davies look into the matter. Later a grave is found located in the castle rose garden. Gareth’s Grandmother worked at the castle in the 1920’s. Looking through her belongings, Penny discovers a clue to help solve the mystery. I recommend this book. Disclosure: I received a free copy from St. Martin’s Press for an honest review. I would like to thank them for this opportunity to read and review the book. The opinions expressed are my own.

    I am trying to cut back on my requests, but after reading your review I wish I had requested this one. I love the play on words in the title too!

    • I find it very hard to keep the request down. I don’t have too many for the May, June and July. Berkeley is not approving many requests. I can’t afford the books so they will go unread.

        Interesting that Berkeley is not approving many. I’m sure you will have plenty. Henery, Kensington, and Severn seem to always have good ones available. I am going back to the U.S. for a few months this summer and don’t know what my time will be like while I am there. So I am trying to catch up and then not overload.

      • Yes, they are my to go but so far there haven’t been many for the summer. I did get Rhys Bowen new Georgina ‘s new book for fall. I dying to read now but I have others to read f.jrst
