Hearse and Gardens
by Kathleen Bridge
is out May 3rd and I was so very excited to get a copy to review. I had a hard time putting down this the second in the Hampton's Home & Garden mystery series. There is magic in this book though not the paranormal kind. Magic I have only seen in a few of my most favorite series. There is something truly unique and special about main character Meg and her adventures. Something so relate-able and believable. She is one of my most favorite cozy main characters of all time. She is not only brave and smart, she has a great work ethic, a no nonsense attitude and the girl knows her way around a yard sale! We could easily be friends. She sees the beauty and potential in things people take for granted and I have truly enjoyed spending the last two days with her. This is the perfect weekend get away book!
"A Hamptons interior designer deals with skeletons in the closet in the new mystery from the national bestelling author of "Better Homes and Corpses." To keep her mind off the legal battle over the oceanfront cottage she s trying to buy, Meg agrees to help her friend inventory and clear out furniture from the massive Montauk estate of wealthy art broker Harrison Falks. But the job takes a terrifying turn when Meg discovers a skeleton in a hidden room in one of the estate s many bungalows. The remains turn out to be those of Harrison s son, who went missing nearly twenty years ago along with one of his father s Warhol paintings. As Meg delves into the Hamptons pop art past, she gets drawn into the sketchy goings-on and family drama at the estate. But when Meg makes no bones about solving the crime, she just might become the subject of the killer s next installation"
The more I think about it and even though Meg is an only child she really does feel like a sister. There are so many amazing things that happen both outrageous and subtle in this story, I fear that if I mention any of it I will want to give it all away. So I will only say this, grab a sweater, a cozy blanket and a large pot of tea, you are going to be transported to Autumn in the Hampton's, wind, rain, storms and adventure along with a few really great mysteries, new friends and old friends and some fantastic decorating tips are waiting for you to discover.
