Publisher: HQ Digital (30th August 2017)
Rubies In The Roses is a book which I think could be described as a cosy mystery. It’s a very well written story, but not one which is full of action. It does have plenty of suspense and intrigue though. I did eventually find myself immersed in the mystery and I was as keen as Guinevere to discover the truth behind the rare wedding goblet and those who might be willing to kill for it.
I can’t say I connected with any of the characters as such, but I did warm to Guinevere and her dog, Dolly. Cornisea Island sounds like somewhere I would love to visit and I could see myself coping quite well with a job like Guinevere’s, cataloguing books! I also thought that Guinevere’s attraction to Max was very realistic. I’m sure many people have been attracted to someone they know might not actually be any good for them. I know I have!
I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who likes a more gentle (if that’s the right word!) murder mystery.
Many thanks to the author and publisher for my kindle copy via Netgalley.
