In another book in the series, the protagonist is surprised when she discovers some information about property in an envelope partly sticking out from a closed drawer in a bedroom chest, and she's very surprised. Sometime much later, however, she's surprised by its existence again, and then later still also claims that she never knew anything about the property until Max had told her about it.
The inclusion of a dog is nice, probably meant to be amusing, and as a single or infrequently used device could be. It starts to get "old" that Libby supposedly loves the dog she minds for her friend, yet for most of the time she cares for it complains about it and cannot wait to be rid of it, and that she can't control the dog at all, but takes the dog to all kinds of places, always blaming the dog for its uncontrolled behavior. Repetitive humor devices, and for that matter, relationship, romantic, and personality quirks, are best in small doses and used sparingly, or they can become a bit annoying.
This book, and the previous books in the series, get all the big things right that make for a good story and a good cozy mystery, so they are a worthwhile read as they are. A little tidying up, though, would raise them to quite another level.
Libby Forrest and her friend Angela Miles are enjoying coffee and a chat in Wells Cathedral café. Angela is a volunteer guide at the cathedral. They unintentionally witnessing an argument between Libby’s lodger, Mandy and her boyfriend, Steve who is Angela’s nephew. As Mandy storms out Angela’s phone rings. There’s been a murder…..
Giles Temple, a historian, has been researching at the cathedral library and was found that morning by Dr Phillips, the librarian. Libby is determined not to involve herself in another investigation. She is busy organising her son’s wedding, her own business and her plans to set up a private investigation service with Max Ramshore. Not only that, she had found herself agreeing to marry Max as well and was getting cold feet about giving up her independence.
Libby’s curiosity gets the better of her, and along with the desire to help and support her friend, she couldn’t resist and is drawn into the investigation regardless of her other commitments, getting involved in a ‘yarn bombing’ knitting circle in the process.
These are enjoyable fun reads, written well and easy to read with eccentric and quirky characters I can’t help but like. Libby especially is engaging and believable. I learned something new too, having never heard of chained libraries before. The characters continue to evolve and the storylines are getting better all the time. And another great cover image. Everything necessary for a cozy murder mystery is included; unexpected twists, intrigue, some suspense and touching scenes, not to mention a bit of romance. I love the locale, especially as I’m familiar with areas where the action takes place. The plot held my interest to the end and, of course, last but no means least there’s Bear!
I chose to read and review Murder at the Cathedral based on an ARC supplied by the author/publisher.
This is a wonderful series and I so hope Ms Evesham will continue it for years to come.
