    Well Worth Reading

    This book has realistic and in-depth characters. After a stirring prologue, the story slowly plods into action. As the reader becomes more invested in the characters, the interest level grows. I was surprised at my emotional reaction to the ending. I figured out the bad guy early on, and was not surprised when the perpetrator was identified. Yet, the books ends on an emotional high note, and leaves the reader with a warm glow. While the mystery was not that suspenseful, the expression of sibling relationships and long-term friendships makes this book well worth reading.

    Enjoyable British Cozy

    I received a complimentary copy of this book as a part of a book tour for a fair and honest review and rated it 4.5 out of 5 Stars. A fan of cozy mysteries and a very amateur gardener, I couldn’t wait to read The Skeleton in the Garden by Marty Wingate and I was not disappointed. Colorful characters, a good pace and an engaging mystery kept me turning the pages to find out what would happen next. While the fourth book in her Potting Shed Mystery series, this is a book which can be read and enjoyed on its own. Ms. Wingate does a good job introducing the characters and the basis of part of the mystery right from the start. I easily connected with Pru, her husband Chris, her recently discovered brother Simon and his wife Polly. Living together at a large estate as they get to know each other, and Pru and Simon redo the gardens, these four characters are colorful and very likeable. I especially liked how easily Pru and Simon got into the “sibling arguments” and learned to work around each other, even though they had been separated for most of their lives. The secondary characters are also well developed and I pretty much liked everybody in town. I especially enjoyed reading about what took happened on a daily basis, how Pru and Chris assumed that moving to the country meant they would live a much more quiet life, and how easily they incorporated themselves into the area. I especially enjoyed getting to meet and know Orlando, Chris’ nephew, who is sent to live with them for a while because of some legal troubles. While he’s not really interested in gardening, when a body is discovered and a mystery needs to be solved, he quickly gets involved. I also enjoyed getting to know “Sonja”, a very headstrong duck, who Simon sees as somewhat of a nuisance and a troublemaker. The mystery is well paced, takes several twists and turns and is actually left over from World War II. As Pru would rather never see another dead body, she’s solved several mysteries before and is becoming quit a pro; something Chris, a police investigator, is not really thrilled about. He’s also got a bit of a dilemma because he doesn’t want to take over the investigation and show up his boss, who happens to be younger, but his experience makes him ideal to run the investigation. Will Pru and Chris discover the identity of the dead body found in the garden? And will Pru be able to keep Simon out of trouble when it looks like he might have something to do with a second body that shows up? You’ll have to read The Skeleton in the Garden to find out. I really enjoyed this installment and can’t wait to see what Ms. Wingate comes up for Pru and Chris to solve next.
