    Texas transplant Pru Parke has put down roots in England, but she never dreamed she'd live in a grand place such as Greenoak. When her former employers offer Pru and her new husband, former Detective Chief Inspector Christopher Pearse, the use of their 19th-century estate while they're away for a year, she jumps at the chance. Sweetening the deal is the prospect of further bonding with her long-lost brother, Simon, who happens to be Greenoak's head gardener. But the majestic manor has at least one skeleton in its closet.

    Story

    The mystery was threadbare and the solution was too obvious. The teen character acts too young for his age and is unrealistic (as is the main character for that matter).

    Nothing ever happens in August, so Kate goes off on a long-overdue holiday to Whitby to visit her friend Alma who works there as a fortune teller. She's been looking forward to a relaxing seaside sojourn, but, upon arrival, she discovers that Alma's daughter, Felicity, has disappeared, leaving her mother a note and the pawn ticket for their only asset: a watch-guard. What makes this more intriguing is that the jeweler who advanced Felicity the 30 shillings is Jack Phillips, Alma's current gentleman friend.

    I really enjoyed the first few in the series but could not finish this one. The secondary characters were unrealistic, and so flighty that they became irritating. The dialogue seemed meandering, not helped by the exaggerated narration.

    To kick off a winter writing retreat, Cat and her handyman boyfriend, Seth, escort the aspiring authors to a nearby ski resort, hoping that some fresh cold air will wake up their creative muses. But instead of hitting the slopes, they hit the bar - and before long, a tipsy romance novelist named Christina is keeping herself warm with a local ski bum who might have neglected to tell her about his upcoming wedding. Next thing Cat knows, her uncle, the town sheriff, informs her that the young man's been found dead.

    This is an enjoyable cozy mystery. I find the continuation of the intrigue surrounding surrounding the Cat's dead ex-husband from the first book adds an additional layer of interest to this series. Sometimes Cat is a bit of a wet blanket about her own retreat, but otherwise I like the cast of central characters. Light and easy to read.
