    This novel is a delightful English cozy mystery. Our heroine is Berdie Elliot, the wife of the vicar at St. Aidan of the Wood Parish Church. When the ground turning ceremony for a new garden area at the church turns up human bones, Berdie goes to work to solve the mystery.

    I love the characters in this novel. They are the quirky ones you'll only find in British novels. Berdie is tenacious, fining out who the strangers in the village are and why they've come. The dialog is great with frequent humor. Berdie and her friend Lillie are a riot.

    This novel requires attention to detail. There are many characters and the plot is convoluted. There are many twists and turns and I must admit I got a little lost at the very end.

    I received a complimentary digital copy of this book through The Book Club Network for the purpose of an independent and honest review.

    This was my first time reading a book by Marilyn Leach and I plan on reading any more that she writes. This was a perfect cozy mystery. I loved all the characters and the mystery was interesting and kept me thinking the whole time. I look forward to reading many more. I received this book from Bookfun.org for a fair and honest opinion.

    Welcome to the Lenten sod turning ceremony to start the

    building of a fountain at the St. Aidan of the Wood parish

    church. What's this_.the ground turning unearths a little

    skeleton!! Whose could it be? How did it get there? How long

    ago was it buried?

    This is the perfect investigation for Berdie Elliott, the vicar's

    wife, to undertake on her own volition. Of course, her best

    friend Lillie needs to assist her. The antics of these two add

    humor throughout the story.

    The characters of Aidan Kirkwood are delightfully quirky

    presenting many suspects to the storyline. The dialogue

    contains many English idioms and informal speech patterns.

    The plot has many twists and turns to keep you guessing to

    the very end.

    The book has mystery, conflict, suspense, danger, romance

    and humor making the read very enjoyable.

    I read this book as a stand alone. I understand it is the second book in the Berdie Elliot Mystery series.

    I received this book from book fun.org. My opinion is my own.

    "Up From the Grave" has an unsolved murder that is causing confusion all around the small town of Aidan Kirkwood. The town's folks are confused, and speculation is running rampant. Gossip spreads fast in a small town where they are all busy NOT minding their own business.

    I enjoyed the many twists and turns in this book, but I must admit that in the first chapter I was introduced to so many characters that I was totally confused! I also found the author's use of so many English terms to be a bit difficult to understand, yet, I can also see why she would add them. The writing style sort of reminded me of Agatha Christy, so if you enjoy her mysteries, you will love Marilyn Leach's "Up From the Grave."

    I received this book from "The Book Club Network" in exchange for my honest opinion.

    This was a fun cozy mystery. A human skeleton is found during a ground breaking ceremony on the church grounds. The Vicar's wife, Birdie and her friend Lillie set out to discover who it is and who dunnit. Lots of twists and turn and secrets ensue. Birdie is great character. If you love cozy mysteries, this is a great one to add to your collection.

    I was given this book by bookfun.org for my honest review.
