Enjoyable cozy mystery involving Civil War re-enactors

  • May 25, 2011
Grace Interrupted is a well-written mystery. It's the second in a series, but you can follow this one without having read the first novel, and this novel doesn't spoil the mystery in the first one (though it does spoil other events).

There were actually two murders to solve: one that's thirteen years old and one that just happened. I was able to correctly guess "whodunit" for both mysteries before the "reveal," but whodunit wasn't obvious. (Many people hated the murdered men, and it seemed like they all had alibis!)

The characters were varied, complex, and likable. They dealt with realistic issues alongside the mystery (like how living under the suspicion of murder for years had messed up a family). The details about the job, Civil War re-enacting, and the Manor and small town setting were skilfully woven into the story and brought it alive in my imagination.

There were no sex scenes. There was a minor amount of "he cussed" style bad language. Overall, I'd highly recommend this well-written, enjoyable mystery.

Sounds like a good series!

Yes, I'm going to try and get the first book in the series as well as future ones. I really liked her writing style, the characters, the background... :)

Nice! Are they easy to procure?

The next one in the series hasn't even been written yet (since "Grace Interrupted" releases on June 7th, 2011). However, I've seen "Grace Under Pressure" available at any of the online bookstores I've checked so far.

Ok, I'll try to check out Grace Under Pressure. I'm adding it to my TBR shelf for now.
