The matriarch of the Bancroft ranch has been murdered. Refusing to go to the light, a being from the “other side” is sent to get her. When Martha still refuses to budge, Gladys stays with her to help solve the murder.
Is it Easy to Read?
Is it a Series?
No, I don’t think so.
Karen’s Magic Reviews
This is my first read by this author and won’t be the last. I thoroughly enjoyed it. All I knew about the story was that it was a murder mystery with a twist. I didn’t know what that twist was until began reading. For those that don’t know, I’m not going to reveal it. Let’s just say it makes the story a little different from the run of the mill.
I could tell it wasn’t set in America and then thought it British but quickly realised it wasn’t there either. So it was a nice change to have a book set in Canada.
We are presented with a murder, a detective and a family. Who is the murderer? With the author’s help, I narrowed it down to one of two, made a guess and got it wrong!
I like my books to have a little bit of romance in them and this had a tempting taster, and I’d have liked to have followed that up.
The author’s ideas were really imaginative and I felt it set the story apart. I caught sight of another book called Stone Cottage and believe this was mentioned in Murder at Mother’s. What a great way to introduce it and it certainly made me add it to my TBR list.
A good read and highly recommended
