Editorial Reviews

This book, the second Massachusetts Mayhem mystery, is set in a small town with supporting characters who add to the plot with their witty banter and sleuthing skills. This writing team has delivered a solid whodunit murder mystery with a lovable romance that is equally pleasurable.

This is one of the HomeTown Mysteries from Barbour Publishing and it was delightful. The authors have done a good job with plot and characters. Monah and Mike are Christians and their faith comes through well. There is a good combination of mystery and humor. For a light mystery, this fits the bill.


It is a good read for when you want something lighthearted and easy to read. Several times I thought I knew who did it, but I kept changing my mind. Right up until the end of the story, I was still searching for the answer to this pleasant who-done-it.

    I'm not going to tell you what is about, because the other reviewers did that. I'm going to give you my opinion about this book. Buy it and read it. You'll love it as much as I did. I fell in love with Detective Mike Brokman, and the way the author developed the romance without making it the main focus...yet, it was very much a part of the story. Great job!

    In this hometown mystery Monah, the town librarian, is on a mission to get much-needed funds to purchase computers for her little library. She's up against quite a bit of competition, including her boyfriend who wants the funds for police department improvements.

    When her competition starts dying, fingers point to Monah as a likely suspect. She has given them both water bottles right before they died. Toxicology reports show that they died from Monkshood poisoning, but that doesn't narrow down the suspect pool, because the garden club sent out monkshood seeds to all its members this spring. Since she knows she didn't do it, Monah realizes that she or her boyfriend might be next on the killers to-do list.

    Suspects abound in this cute cozy mystery. It is a good read for when you want something lighthearted and easy to read. Several times I thought I knew who did it, but I kept changing my mind. Right up until the end of the story, I was still searching for the answer to this pleasant who-done-it. I give it 3 Stars.

    Died in the Wool is written by Elizabeth Ludwig and Janelle Mowery and is book 2 in the Massachusetts Mayhem Mysteries, part of the Hometown Mystery collection by Barbour Books Publishing.

    I was provided with this book by the publisher through NetGalley. All opinions rendered are my own.

    There is money to be had from the city and librarian Monah wants it for much needed upgrades of the library computers. Wayne is trying to sell the community on a sports complex. Ken wants the money for the fire department. And Miss Tait thinks the school district is in dire need of the funds.

    It has been a cold day in the library. The air conditioner won't quit and library patrons are shivering. And then comes in dour Miss Tait with teenagers. Trying to ease Miss Tait's complaining about the cold, Monah gives her the wool sweater on the back of her chair.

    As Monah is ready to close the library for the day, she notices a light in the bathroom and finds the summer school teacher dead. It turns out she has been poisoned. Was it in the water Monah gave Miss Tait?

    Monah and Detective Mike are sweet on each other but the situation becomes difficult when it appears Monah might be a suspect in the murder case. A few days later an outdoor street fair is held and Monah is there, selling extra books to make some money for the library. Wayne dies shortly after having been given a bottle of water by Monah.

    It doesn't look good for Monah or the relationship she has with Detective Mike. She only way she can prove her innocence is the find the killer herself. Just when she thinks she has found the culprit, the situation becomes more complex and she finds she might be next on the killer's list.

    This is one of the HomeTown Mysteries from Barbour Publishing and it was delightful. The authors have done a good job with plot and characters. Monah and Mike are Christians and their faith comes through well. There is a good combination of mystery and humor. For a light mystery, this fits the bill.

    I received an egalley of this book from Barbour Publishing for the purpose of this review.
