Summary

Libby Forest is hot on the trail of the killer when disaster strikes closer to home.

The sudden death of an elderly volunteer at Dunster Castle rocks the Castle’s ancient calm to its core, leaving members of the local History Society devastated. When the finger is pointed at a fellow volunteer, his wife, Margery, fears her husband of 40 years may be the killer. 

Libby Forest, in partnership with Max Ramshore and their two much-loved dogs, Bear and Shipley, is determined to find the castle killer - no matter who it may be.

Quirky characters, dogs, cake and gossip abound in this Exham on Sea Murder Mystery, set in a charming English seaside town of Exham on Sea - an audiobook for listeners who love Agatha Christie-style murder mysteries, cosy crime, dogs, cake and chocolate.

The beauty and charm of Somerset.

What a wonderful mystery! After several somewhat disappointing books, reading "Murder at the Castle" felt like such a treat. The author writes so beautifully, and with such ease, I enjoyed every word of this novel. The best element of the book, however, is the excellent character creation and development. The author doesn't need long paragraphs of minute descriptions; she captures the essence of each character masterfully in little gestures or quick internal monologues.
"Murder at the Castle" is a sharp and fun mystery but written with such gentle touch (that I miss in many crime/mystery novels). The beauty and charm of Somerset shine through and bring the story even more alive.
I can't recommend this book enough - beautifully written, entertaining, and simply wonderful!
