A theft, a murder and a missing person in a mystery set in Wales

Remembering the Dead: A Penny Brannigan Mystery

By: Elizabeth J. Duncan

Rating: 5 of 5

While this is the tenth in the Penny Brannigan mystery series, it is the first book that I have rad by Elizabeth J. Duncan. I so enjoyed it, I immediately purchased the first in the series and will read my way through them in order. This book can easily be read stand-alone and doesn’t seem to contain too much by way of spoilers for previous books.

In this story, Penny is confronted with a theft, a missing person and a murder. It seems as though all must be related and Penny goes to work solving all three.

Penny is a co-owner of a spa and, luckily for her, she can take off and go sleuthing. In this case, it kind squeezes the employees of the spa into doing more work than usual; however, they are all dedicated to having the crime solved.

The action takes place both in Wales and in Ireland and Penny heads across on the ferry to track down clues.

I didn’t see the entire end of the whodunnit but had a pretty good idea of part of the solution. I really enjoyed being surprised by the end and look forward to the next installment in the series.

I was provided a digital advance reader copy of this book by the publisher via Netgalley.
