Hearse And Gardens

A Hamptons Home & Garden Mystery

by Kathleen Bridge

Genre: Cozy Mystery

 My teaser from page 73 in the paperback.

 The folly decor was kept simple. I used mostly found items. I’d brought in an aqua carriage house door, worn and faded by years of salt air and sun, that doubled as a tabletop. I’d placed it over two large electrical spools I’d liberated from the side of the road.

I love to scavenge things left discarded and make something original and cozy out of them.

Read on if you want to know more.

Synopsis

A Hamptons interior designer deals with skeletons in the closet in the new mystery from the national bestelling author of Better Homes and Corpses.

To keep her mind off the legal battle over the oceanfront cottage she’s trying to buy, Meg agrees to help her friend inventory and clear out furniture from the massive Montauk estate of wealthy art broker Harrison Falks. But the job takes a terrifying turn when Meg discovers a skeleton in a hidden room in one of the estate’s many bungalows. The remains turn out to be those of Harrison’s son, who went missing nearly twenty years ago—along with one of his father’s Warhol paintings.

As Meg delves into the Hamptons’ pop art past, she gets drawn into the sketchy goings-on and family drama at the estate. But when Meg makes no bones about solving the crime, she just might become the subject of the killer’s next installation.

    Sounds like a good cozy. I’ll have to look into that series. My Teaser is from an urban fantasy title: Flame in the Dark by Faith Hunter.

  2. Alice Audrey says:

    I need to know more about that county road. Those spools are hard to come by around here.

    Sounds like a good cozy. I have Better Homes and Corpses on my TBR mountain. This week I have A Treacherous Curse by Deanna Raybourn. I’m hooked on this historical mystery series. Happy reading!

  4. I love anything that has bits of interior design in the story…and this one sounds very tempting. Great cover, too! Thanks for sharing, and here’s mine: “THE WOMAN IN THE WINDOW”

    I loved this one and enjoy this series very much.

  6. HI!

    I joined in, but not very well. I forgot to link up my post, add a TT pic… but I couldn’t find anywhere to link up to. Is there?

    I love your tease by the way!!

      At the top of my post under the banner you’ll see The Purple Booker highlighted in red. You link up there. It was fun to see your link up!

  7. Oh, this will be interesting! I am so into how his son wound up in the closet. Was he dead before being put there? How was there no smell all those years ago? Why does he have a Warhol painting with him? So intrigued!!

  8. looks like a good start on reading the cozies.
