Publisher's Summary

After her romantic idyll with the debonair Detective Chief Inspector Christopher Pearse culminates in a marriage proposal, Pru Parke sets about arranging their nuptials while diving into a short-term gig at the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh. At hand is the authentication of a journal purportedly penned by 18th-century botanist and explorer Archibald Menzies. Compared to the chaos of wedding planning, studying the journal is an agreeable task...that is, until a search for a missing cat leads to the discovery of a dead body: One of Pru's colleagues has been conked on the head with a rock and dumped from a bridge into the Water of Leith.

Pru can't help wondering if the murder has something to do with the Menzies diary. Is the killer covering up a forgery? Among the police's many suspects are a fallen aristocrat turned furniture maker, Pru's overly solicitous assistant, even Pru herself. Now, in the midst of sheer torture by the likes of flamboyant wedding dress designers and eccentric church organists, Pru must also uncover the work of a sly murderer - unless this bride wants to walk down the aisle in handcuffs.

    "Another Superb Book!"

    This third book in this series was excellent! I didn't figure out who dunnit in this one! Great story, along with suspense on more than one front! Delightful characters in charming settings. As usual, Erin Bennett did an amazing job. She's one of the few that can give characters different voices without making me wish for straight reading.

    Story
    "Everything I Want (and, then some)"
    What made the experience of listening to Between a Rock and a Hard Place the most enjoyable?

    The sweet & captivating storyline with the little bits of "laugh out loud" humor. Pru, herself, is so down-to-earth and believable. And, I love that she's in her 50s. But, the "experience of listening" lay at the feet of the wonderful narrator, Erin Bennett.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Well, Pru, of course and I LOVED Christopher in each of the books, too! He comes across sexy and supportive - never over-stepping his bounds. But, Pru is a soft yet strong, loving, feisty, never full-of-herself woman and that makes her very interesting to me.


    What about Erin Bennett’s performance did you like?

    She is the BEST!! Switching from a Texas accent to a British accent to a Scottish accent PLUS capturing all ages and sexes perfectly. Her delivery is appropriate to the story and leaves the reader with exacting visuals. She deserves just as much credit as the author. What a talent.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    A few tears and few laughs!


    Any additional comments?

    Sometimes, in the series, there have been injuries that are never mentioned later on - like the first novel...... Pru had a deep cut on her chin that Christopher said needed stitches but there was never mention of it again.
