    Widow Ellie Quicke frets a great deal And she has a great deal about which to fret her singularly bossy and selfish daughter Diana, Diana s impending divorce from the placid, reliable Stewart Stewart s new relationship and his custody battle for baby Frank, the old memories flooding back, figurative skeletons in the closet.And now there s a literal skeleton of a young girl, unearthed in the garden next door Ellie, long a doormat, has been gradually coming into her own In Murder in the Garden, Veronica Heley s fifth novel in this series, Ellie s in fine form, although I won t spoil the novel by giving you details The mystery s an intriguing one don t get me wrong but what I most enjoyed about Murder in the Garden was reconnecting with my old friend Ellie and discovering that she was doing not just fine, but much better than expected.

    Ugh One of the last chapters there s a character who thinks Christianity is the only religion where you re asked to look out for one another.The character speaking was Muslim I m atheist, not agnostic, atheist and even I know that giving alms and charity is a big part of the Muslim religion It s called Zakat, one of the five tenets.The story and mystery are entertaining but I m getting really sick of the religious and righteous crap.PS Im a woman and I can NOT see one little stumble causing a miscarriage Severe emotional or physical trauma might cause a miscarriage But one light push from a child Nope.

    I don t like how it was written The story line was good but that s about all I got

    The fifth Ellie Quicke Mystery is, predictably, a thoroughly entertaining cozy in which the domestic detail is enjoyably leavened by the author s tart point of view.

    Ellie Quick is having trouble concentrating Her neighbors are redoing their backyard and the noise level is making it difficult for Ellie to accomplish much of anything So when it becomes totally quiet, Ellie knows something is very wrong That something is a skeleton dug up where the new water feature should be Thus begins another entertaining mystery featuring the kind and considerate Ellie, who, among other crosses, has to put up with her extremely presumptuous daughter Diana I enjoy the way that Veronica Heley incorporates her Christian faith into the Ellie without making it overbearing It s good to see people in fiction that is not overtly Christian fiction that doesn t make fun of every Christian character.

    This is the fifth book in the Ellie Quicke Mystery series Ellie s husband died about a year ago and she is making her way on her own A skeleton is found in the next door garden while they were excavating to develop a new garden The police ask Ellie to remember and give details on all the previous neighbors in order to find out if any went missing Ellie has problems going into the past to remember events It brings up bad memories with her daughter, her own health, and her perfectionist husband This part of the book became old for me Ellie was either portraying herself as a victim or just the opposite that everything was her fault.I do like the character of Ellie as she goes out of her way to help people She is starting to stand up for herself with her overbearing and selfish daughter She is still pretty much at the beck and call of her acquaintances but she is starting to learn to say no and put her plans first I enjoy following Ellie in her life and there are some characters that I enjoy reading about They are Rose, her aunt, Roy and Bill The relationship with Stewart and Maria is interesting.Ellie has two male admirers that she see as friends I did see a possible new relationship developing but will have to read future books to see if it happens When Ellie encounters the villain who she knows is the villain, she is almost unbelievable in her naivety and poor judgment This was not my favorite book in the series but I do enjoy the series so far very much The series is very cozy.

    It isn t the best idea to start a series in the middle but this was the Ellie Quicke mystery available to me, and doing that gives one another perspective So you can read this series out of order and enjoy it without confusion although of course there will be a few answers provided to Ellie s private life in retrospect.This was a very well written read with well developed characters and an interesting plot Anyone who likes a clean but well developed read with a mature female sleuth should give this series a try The scenario is modern, in a cozy British setting, with plenty of real life situations to cope with.My criticisms are like observations First of all, the story and plot requires paying close attention to who Ellie s neighbors were over the past couple of decades, and there were a lot of them If you miss something in the description of these people and the follow up that takes place after the body is found, you ll get lost.Second, some may not care for the soul searching and agonizing of her past that takes place in Ellie because of this crime She is forced to confront some issues and a lot of pain from earlier years, and being a woman who can be assertive and strong, but also has a very vulnerable side, draws the reader with her into what becomes a story within a story.I liked it, and look forward to reading other Ellie Quicke mysteries.

    Ellie Quicke is overseeing the remodelling of her neighbour s garden when a skeleton is unearthed Naturally the police have to be involved and Ellie finds herself trying to remember all the various families who have lived in the property Kate and Armand the current owners of the house find their love for it severely compromised by the prospect of it being the scene of a murder While the invesyigation is going on, Ellie has to battle with her obnoxious daughter Diana and finds herself torn between supporting her daughter and her son in law in their marital disharmonies.This is number five in this well written and interesting cosy mystery series The everyday problems which beset Ellie are things which every woman can relate to Feeding a family, being the recipient of everyone s secrets and being expected to sort our everyone s problems for them Add to that a police investigation which depends on her memories of her neighbours and you have a recipe for a busy life The characters are well drawn Ellie is believable and interesting Aunt Drusilla is mellowing with companion Rose s influence Even if you haven t read the previous episodes in the series you can still enjoy this book as a standalone mystery.

    Ellie Quick s piety and good nature is thoroughly challenged when a body is found buried in her neighbor s garden More than 15 years old, the skeleton raises many shadows buried in Ellie s memory as she strives to remember who it might be The memories of her husband that are resurrected are ones she would rather have not faced The rumors start that her husband had a roving eye and killed the young woman to cover up an affair As the memories become clear, she helps uncover the mystery.Not the best on in this series in my opinion Ellie s interior voice is wimpy and dithering.
