The back story is interesting and makes me want to read the next installment. Good plot. This is a fun read.

This is the second in the Rona Parish mystery series and very good it is too in my opinion. Rona has been commissioned to do a series of articles about the town of Buckford because it is celebrating eight hundred years in existence. She decides to stay in the town for a couple of nights each week while she gathers information for her articles.
Almost immediately she is asked to look into a murder by the wife of the person who was convicted of the crime because she believes he is innocent. Rona is reluctant but Beth Spencer is persuasive and in any case Rona herself has come across some information while talking to an elderly lady which may be relevant to the murder. Then Rona starts to receive anonymous notes warning her to stay away. Someone has something to hide it seems.
I liked the characters in this book as the author really brings them to life - not just Rona herself and her family but the people she meets and those who help with her research. I liked the background of the bustling market town with its mixture of old and new buildings. I felt I could visualise the backdrop to this story very easily.
If you like crime and mystery novels with well drawn characters and backgrounds and interesting plots then try this series. There is no graphic violence or bad language.

Excellent as always. I have read all the Rona fParish books before, often more than once,but always enjoy them again. In this series I am particularly fond of Gus the golden retriever. Everything he does is spot on. Anthea Frazer must have known and loved one. | Top times are not available for custom cuts Advertisement
