Capable of Murder by Brian Kavanagh

The old lady's decaying body lay at the foot of the stairs. The police believe it was simply an accidental fall that killed great-aunt Jane. But was it? Young Australian, Belinda Lawrence is convinced it was murder and when she inherits her great-aunt's ancient cottage and garden on the outskirts of Bath, England, she finds herself deep in a taut mystery surrounding her legacy. A secret room. Unknown intruders. A hidden ancient document. They all contribute to the mounting dread. A second vicious murder by a ruthless killer intensifies the tension and Belinda, now under threat herself, is befriended by two charming men: her neighbour Jacob and real-estate agent Mark Sallinger. But can she trust them? And what interest has befuddled antique dealer Hazel Whitby in the cottage? Could one of them be the killer? An excellent example of a time-honoured English village murder mystery with a lively young heroine pitting her intellect against an evil killer, both bent on solving the riddle of an ancient garden. An inventive puzzle glazed with wit and the first of the Belinda Lawrence series.

Lesley | 57 comments Intriguing mystery, not too taxing, rapid paced read. Since I appear to be the only one to reading this, I won't discuss but here's my review/thoughts -
The plot and murders were in the style Midsomer Murders. The story moves along at a quick pace and is easy to read. I found Belinda a little annoying in her intolerant attitude to everyone. I would have liked a little more character background, as well as an indication of the time period, but otherwise I did enjoy the mystery and will read more in the series.
