 Title: The Marsh Madness
 Author: Victoria Abbott
 Series: Book 4 A Book Collector Mystery
 Publisher: Berkley Prime Crime Mystery
 Format: Paperback
 Source: Received for review from Publisher
 Rating: 3.75 out of 5
 Reviewed by Marlene


Jordan Bingham has finally settled after the tremulous events that happened last fall and believes her life is finally back on track. Everything is going well, her job for Miss Vera Van Alst, her relationship with Office Tyler “Smiley” Dekker, her friends and family by her side.

 When Miss Van Alst receives an invitation to buy a set of Dame Ngaio Marsh books from Chadwick Kauffman at his country home, Summerlea nothing could be better. Jordan and Miss Van Alst and Uncle Kev to are invited for a luncheon to discuss and finalize the deal.

 Soon after Kauffman turns up murdered. Being spotted as the last people to leave the home Vera, Jordan and Kev become the sole suspects in the case. As the investigation unfolds Jordan finds herself on her own to find out who the real killer is and all the accomplices to go with him. No one is who they seem even the victim. She finds herself on the outside of the law and facing the murderer himself in the original crime scene.

The story was very emotion driven and poor Jordan kept coming up against walls and dead ends. It made for a great read. As always I love Jordan and (even) Vera too. Their relationship is growing and you can see Vera's character evolving in each book.

  15. I love "cozy" mysteries! Everything is going well: job, relationships, family...THEN! Murder! Even though the formula seems to be the same from one series, book, or author to another, I have not tired reading about new or familiar characters, new places, new predicaments. kat8762@aol.com

  22. I'm new to this series but from your review it sounds like it just gets better and better. Poor heroine Jordan, as she, "finds herself on the outside of the law and facing the murderer himself in the original crime scene." Oh my! Thanks for another good Cozy!! :)
