Publisher's Summary

"Two ghosts troubled Dr. Benjamin Bones. One he feared would never release him. Another he worried might slip away, however much he tightened his grip...."

So begins Divorce Can Be Deadly, the long-awaited second book in Emma Jameson's wartime cozy mystery series. Return to Birdswing, a tiny Cornish village, in the bitter winter of 1939 and revisit old friends as they embark on more amateur sleuthing. Irrepressible Lady Juliet is taking a correspondence course in private detection and is vexed by the return of her soon-to-be ex-husband. Meanwhile, not only has Ben failed to realize the depth of her feelings for him, but his obsession with Lucy, the Fenton House ghost, grows stronger.

When a bloodless, half-naked corpse is discovered in a great house in a nearby village, Ben and Juliet must again follow the clues to solve the case. Join them as they pry into the secret lives of villagers in seemingly picture-perfect Barking, including a vicar who hides from his secretary, a baron haunted by the Great War, and a butler who just might have done it.

Brimming with romance, historical details, and warm humor, Divorce Can Be Deadly will prove itself worth the wait!

    "Absolutely charming!"
    Any additional comments?

    In a class of its own when it comes to cozy mysteries. Reminiscent of Agatha Christie. Fun characters, light & clever humor, appealing mysteries. The narration was excellent. Highly recommended!

    "Smashing! Hooked, utterly"

    Dr Bones and his Lady friend are a heavenly pair- also in the sense of being star-crossed. Even so, they've spoiled me for other literary pairings. Would like leave the next in series until its season comes around (Yuletide theme) but I doubt I will be able to wait that long!

    Terrific work, Emma. I love your poignancy, too. Well-drawn characters one cares about in a timeless setting.
