  • Memories and murder

    Kate Hamilton is still working with Ivor Tweedy and they have a large opportunity to work with the developers and board of an old sanitarium being rehabbed into luxury residences. They have been asked to sell some antiques and a very valuable painting from an old master. Kate’s inner sensors tell her something is off, she just has no idea just how off it is. Until Kate connects the murder of a man she found to her roommate and the old sanitarium. As old friends from Vivian’s youth keep dying, Kate and Tom worry for Vivian’s safety. Now they have to figure out who’s behind the murders before Vivian joins her old friends in the hereafter. Connie Berry always knocks it out of the ballpark with each and every release. With well developed characters that you come to think of as friends, you’ll be ready to join them in each and every whodunit that is released. Well done!

  • Awesome book in a great traditional mystery series

    I have been captivated by Connie Berry's traditional mystery series, Kate Hamilton Mysteries, but the fourth book, The Shadow of Memory has stolen my heart. Just as the mystery evokes memories for Vivian, it reminds me of my teen years and how focus we were on our world and our own concerns. The fact that death closely touches this dear character makes the whole book touch my heart. Soon after Kate and Vivian come across a body in a cemetery, they learn that the victim is an old crush from Vivian's youth and that the death may be connected to a contract that Ivor has signed with a museum that had once been an asylum. I am thrilled to see Kate and Tom progress with their plans in spite of his mother! They make a wonderful couple. My thanks to NetGalley and Crooked Lane Books for allowing me to read an ARC of The Shadow of Memory, a truly awesome cozy mystery! It is a one of those special books that I couldn't put down until my eyes wouldn't stay open another minute.

  • a good read

    murder, murder-investigation, family-dynamics, friendship, law-enforcement, England, suspense, suspicion, art-fraud, small-town, antiques, cosy mysteries***** A widowed antique dealer with a shop Ohio who grew up in Wisconsin, Kate is managing the antiquities shop in England with her elder friend Ivor. She is currently staying with another elder friend as well as slogging through the mire of wedding plans that are complicated by the fact that her intended is a DI in England. Enter the first corpse. Initially suspected to be natural causes, it soon proves otherwise. The man was a retired DCI and was coming to see her friend (and had been her first crush in 1963 when a group of summer friends stumbled upon a cold murder scene abandoned for three years). Let the sleuthing with due diligence begin! The characters are interesting and engaging, the investigation twisty and packed with misdirection, distractions, and the whole is simply riveting. Hope there's another book in the offing! I enjoyed the previous books in series so I can't really judge if it stands alone, but I think so. I requested and received a free ebook copy from Crooked Lane Books via NetGalley. Thank you!

  • Is a Cold Case Leading to Modern Murders?

    Kate Hamilton and her fiancé, Tom Mallory, are trying to plan their wedding, but having difficulty making decisions. Meanwhile, Kate and her colleague, Ivor, are asked to sell a painting that might be several centuries old. Something about it seems off to Kate, however. Then there’s the murder in Kate’s village with ties to a friend of hers. Kate begins to think these events are connected, but can she prove it? There is a lot going on here, but I never had trouble following the story at all. I’m impressed with how everything comes together at the end without dropping any of the plot points along the way. The characters we already know are wonderful, and it is great to see their relationships growing. The new characters feel real, even though they don’t get that much page time. This book is on the more serious side of the cozy spectrum, but that’s just an observation, not a warning. I was actually frustrated that life kept getting in the way of my reading because I wanted to know what was going to happen next. Fans will be pleased. If that isn’t you yet, start this series today.

  • Ok read

    First Connie Berry book. Found the story slow, the characters and places were the best of this story. Ok read, not a favorite. Loved the cover.
