six months after the release of A Dream of Death,
Connie Berry has gifted readers with the second book in her
Kate Hamilton Mystery series.
It is Christmas season and antique dealer Kate Hamilton has
gone to the English village of Long Barston to visit her daughter,
Christine. Christine and her boyfriend, Tristan, work at the
historic Finchley Hall. Kate joins a guided tour of the hall
and its ground, and is captivated by the tales of hidden treasure
and murders with emphasis on the Finley Hoard.
As the tour of the grounds proceeds, a boy from the tour group
discovers a body along the lakeshore. The dead woman is Tabitha
King, an intern at the estate. A second murder happens, and
Christine becomes a suspect. Kate, of course, has to find
a way to clear her daughter’s name.
A multifaceted gem of a book, it's sure to hold your interest
from the first page. Be prepared to set aside an afternoon
or evening to enjoy this book cover to cover. Highly recommended.
