Kate Palmer has proven more than effective when it came to solving murders. This time the murder victim was right in her own garden. Not only does Woody Forrest, former DI and Kate’s new husband, recognize the victim, something found on the body just might tie Woody to the murder. More than that, the victim was Frank Ford, someone from Woody’s past. As it turns out, Woody had received correspondence from Frank and Charlotte, the current detective inspector, is forced to view Woody as a suspect.
Bound and determined to prove Woody’s innocence, Kate must learn who Frank was and how he ended up dead in their garden. She starts asking about and suspicion quickly falls on Frank’s family. It seems clear that Frank had a problem with several members of his family, making it very likely that one of them was indeed the killer. However, there is soon another victim, and this points the attention back to Woody as the possible murderer. Working harder than ever, Kate is even more determined to find answers.
A Body at Lavender Cottage is the wonderful sixth installment in this delightful cozy mystery series. Kate Palmer’s age does not slow her down a bit, and she will definitely remind readers of Miss Marple or Jessica Fletcher. When you factor in Kate’s sharp skills and the intriguing plot, one that took on a few surprise turns, it is easy to see why this book will appeal to many readers. Also, not only do we have Kate and Woody, we also have Angie, Kate’s sister. Her inclusion in these stories adds an extra layer of enjoyment. The conclusion was riveting and has me more than eager for the next book in the series.
Many thanks to Bookouture and to NetGalley for this ARC for review. This is my honest opinion.
