    Ellie Quicke is a new to me, I found the book on the new read shelf and couldn t resist Now I don t know if I am happy I can go back and read the earlier volumes or sad I didn t wait to read them in order In any event, a nice solid story, very interesting characters and as one of the cover blurbs says A fine balance of outer sleuthing and inner delving.

    Murder in the Park is the 9th book in the Ellie Quick Series This is a cozy mystery series that I always enjoy Ellie Quick is a widow and the books progress with her through the changes in her life after being widowed.In this book, a teenager walking a dog through the park, had his dog attack a mother with her children The mother dies Later an elderly woman is robbed while on the street by this teenager who had the dog with him Ellie is asked by Aunt Drusilla to find information about the teen and his dog.This is a pivotal book in the series At least 3 major changes happen to Ellie that will change the future books I like these books due to Ellie as she goes about her life in a London suburb that has a small town feel to it She is developing a back bone She does have a dreadful adult daughter whose actions are hard to believe at times I would be happy if she was written out of the series For my part, the story line or series wouldn t suffer if she was not in it This is a relaxing series that I go back to when I want to catch up with Ellie s life Cozy readers who enjoy a sleuth that is in her 50 s and living in a town with a small town feel should enjoy this series I would start with the first book Murder at the Altar because of the character development especially of Ellie.

    A decent read Good characters and a nice village setting A note in the audio format I listened to the first half of the book The narrator was excellent with the different voices, dialects and inflection Very entertaining and she really brought the characters to life But she read very meticulously and infused so much drama into every sentence that the reading was very drawn out, too much so for my taste She also tended to pause too long at commas so you d think a sentence was finished but then she d tack on one last phrase I read the second half Not as entertaining but quicker

    Ellie Quicke is one of the nicest investigators you could ever hope to meet She ranks right up there with Miss Marple, although the crimes she looks into aren t quite as cozy and she isn t quite as far from danger as Miss Marple was This story starts out with a crime that isn t close to Ellie A woman is mauled to death by a dog at a local park Ellie finds out about it when Felicity, who is married to her aunt s son, comes across the woman while out with her baby Felicity falls apart and calls in the unshakable Ellie Ellie is also dealing with the downward health spiral of that same Aunt Drusilla and the shake up that is causing in the family Of course, Ellie s dreadful daughter Diana makes matters much worse It s entertaining and gripping in the suspenseful sections Will Diana ever grow up One can only hope.
