Publisher's Summary

When the body of a young woman is found near the ruins of a haunted abbey, everyone assumes she died of fright. A postmortem examination tells a different story. Not only was Elizabeth Barrett poisoned, but the lethal dose of cyanide must have been administered by someone close to her - someone she trusted, who may have known her secret.  

As Captain Redmond and Constable Haze delve into the victim's seemingly ordinary life, they learn she wasn't the proper, biddable wife everyone believed her to be. With no clear motive for the murder and no obvious suspects, the trail soon grows cold. But the killer is closer than they imagined, waiting to strike with deadly force should they discover the truth.   

This is the second installment of the exciting Redmond and Haze mysteries, perfect for fans of Arthur Conan Doyle, Anne Perry, and C.S. Harris.

Another good story!

I think this was a very enjoyable listen, partly because the characters are really starting to develop. The pace is steady, continually moving forward, with other story lines included that help develop the relationships and set the backdrop for the murder mystery.

Exciting story/plot

I loved the storyline in the plot and really appreciated the author being creative with taking the story around and not leaving it to open for predictability. What I didn’t like very much was the narrator, she needs to pump it up a little bit, her reading is a bit flat.
Looking forward to the next book in the series.

Candy

I’ve really enjoyed this series so far! I even went to Kindle books on Amazon and will read the third book in this series!!!! It does seem like the Doctor is the one who solves the mysteries more than Daniel tho!!!

Entertaining periodic murder mystery

Fresh from solving his first murder, life seems to be looking up for Parish Constable Daniel Haze. He and his wife Sarah have reconciled and his budding friendship with Jason Redmond is going from strength to strength now that the Captain has decided to stay on in Birch Hill rather than return to America.

When the body of a young woman is discovered near the grounds of a supposedly haunted abbey, our unlikely duo team up once more to ascertain the manner of her death. The post-mortem reveals that not only was Elizabeth Barrett poisoned, but the lethal dose of cyanide was administered by someone who was close to her - someone she trusted who may have known her secret.

Further investigation into the victim’s seemingly ordinary life reveals that she wasn’t the proper, biddable wife that everyone thought she was and the closer the duo get to unmasking her killer, they fail to see that the culprit is right under see their noses until it’s too late...

Murder at the abbey is the second instalment of the Redmond and Haze Mysteries. While I cottoned quite early as to who the culprit was, this is no way lessoned my enjoyment of watching Jason and Daniel put the pieces together.

While the first book highlighted class discrimination, this book reflects on the restrictions placed on women during the 19th century. It was also interesting to read about the new advancements in policing that were beginning to emerge with regards to fingerprints and photographing the scene of the crimes.

The author has once again done a great job of creating characters that seemingly come alive with a plot that moved fluidly along. Another breezy page turner which was perfect for willing away a couple of hours.

I received an advanced free audible copy of Murder at the Abbey and I am voluntarily reviewing it. Wendy Wolfson’s clear and concise narration never ceases to impress as she always captures the characters so well
