The Corpse with the Sapphire Eyes
(A Cait Morgan Mystery)
Paperback: 240 pages
Publisher: TouchWood Editions (May 5, 2015)
It’s Cait and Bud’s wedding weekend and for the first time she feels like a bride—or at least, she’s supposed to. But then the rain won’t quit, the supposedly romantic Welsh castle feels creepy, and there’s a dead body on the stairs.
What first appears to have been the untimely, unfortunate, and accidental death of their wedding choirmaster quickly reveals itself to have been a murder. And when a series of mysterious events occur around the castle, Cait, Bud, and Cait’s sister Sian tackle the case of The Corpse with the Sapphire Eyes, attempting to solve the mystery before another sinister event can ruin their destination wedding..
Originally from Wales, now-Canadian Cathy Ace writes the Cait Morgan Mysteries. In The Corpse with the Silver Tongue her foodie criminologist sleuthed in the south of France. The Corpse with the Golden Nose found Cait sniffing out a killer in BC’s vineyards. The Corpse with the Emerald Thumb met her when she was meddling in murders in Mexico. This time Cait is caught up in a true closed-room mystery in a classy casino restaurant in Las Vegas. When not helping Cait solve traditional, closed-circle mysteries, Cathy’s a keen gardener, ably assisted by her green-pawed chocolate Labradors.
My review: The Corpse with the Sapphire Eyes
This is a cozy mystery with interesting characters. There is plenty of drama, mysteries, treasures and murder. It is a clean read. Some of the secrets you can guess others I did not see coming.
Cait and Bud's wedding is going to take place in Wales in a castle. Of course it does not go as planned. It is raining and cold. Now a body is found at the bottom of the stairs.
Cait Morgan is from Wales but has lived in Canada for years. She is smart and can remember everything she sees. She is a professor of Criminology at University of Vancouver.
Bud Anderson is a retired detective of homicide. Bud is a widower.
The suspects are limited to those that are in the Castell Llwyd.
The setting was in Wales. There was some words in Welsh too. I have not read much about Wales and I am Welsh from 4 generations ago my family lived in Wales. I need to learn more about the Country and people.
It is set in a great big castle that has been added on a few different times over the years. Makes you want to go exploring.
Some of the story is at a slower pace. There is a bringing all the suspects together scenes a couple of times. As Cait asks questions and hints of things but says nothing till the big reveal scene.
I was given this ebook to read and in return agreed to give a honest review of The Corpse with the Sapphire Eyes and be part of it;s blog tour.
