The Skeleton Garden: A Potting Shed Mystery by Marty Wingate
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
The Skeleton Garden: A Potting Shed Mystery by Marty Wingate is a well written read. I enjoyed this cozy mystery.
This novel was approved for me by Random House, #Chatterbox, #House Party. Sent via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
The title and cover were big lures for me. I was a bit hesitant to start a series on #4, but there is no worry. "The Skeleton Garden"stands alone without leaving any head scratching.
The main protagonist Pru, and her police detective husband Christopher, are well developed characters. They are and realistic. I think of Pru as strong, but she has some weakness.
I am not one who goes for romance. I did enjoy the love and heat between this couple. It was clean and erotic leaving most of the action to the imagination.
As a genealogist, I found the family and world history to be an added boost. It is an interesting way to learn of a treacherous time of world war.
This novel has many middle aged and older characters. Something I enjoy is the young people who show their heroism. Once given the opportunity to take part in real life adventure, they proved heroes. They bring technology to the gardeners and combine old school and new.
A reader who adores a cozy mystery will not have wasted their precious minutes on this book. Even though it is not necessary, I do want to go back and find out more about the "Potting Shed Mysteries"
I am recommending these for our library. I think they will circulate well.
