Wishing a happy release day to author Carrie Marsh on her latest cozy mystery Murder of Convenience!
Murder of Convenience by Carrie Marsh
Murder of Convenience is a quick easy reading cozy murder mystery filled with interesting characters and layered clues. I didn’t see it coming and was surprised at the whodunnit which is always fun as a reader. At times while reading this I felt as though it was based in a past time, before technology was prevalent and I would say that it has a bit of an old school charm to it.
One thing to note is that I’m a little confused at the title of this book as I don’t see the relevance to the story, nor does it link well to the murder and plot. Regardless of the irrelevant title, I did enjoy this book. I enjoyed reading about the main character and liked that she’s a bit older. My mom is in her sixties and I believe that being in your sixties can still be considered young if you have a youthful happy soul. I enjoyed this story and would recommend it to anyone that enjoys cozy mysteries. This is the first in the series but all of Marsh’s books can be read in any order as she doesn’t include major spoilers.
My Rating: 4/5 Stars
I received a complimentary review copy via the author. All reviews 100% reflect my honest opinion.

A bizarre misfortune… An insightful baroness… Is it truly an accident? Or could it be murder?
Recently retired from public duties, Lady Marcie Winston-Browne has found a new purpose in assisting others. With a keen interest in village affairs and with no children of her own to speak of, Marcie – and her husband, Lord Harry Winston-Browne – are more than content to contribute to village life: they are, after all, godparents to half the tiny rural village of Stowe.
When Janet Fleet – a well-liked, if unusual, young woman – is found dead in what appears to be a car accident, Marcie can’t help but feel that something foul is afoot. As the last person to see Janet alive, Marcie is determined to reveal the truth behind the peculiar death. Not only for Janet’s sake – but also for the sake of the daughter Janet was forced to leave behind.
Haunted by a terrible sense of guilt for failing to stop the murder before it began, Marcie embarks on a winding lane of deceptions, conspiracies, and plots to uncover the secret behind a ruthless killer. But can she find the person responsible? Or with this cruel killer get away with more than just one murder?
Can Lady Winston-Browne discover the real truth behind Janet Fleet’s death?
Or will she be left with not one, but two, bodies on her conscience?
