Publisher's Summary

Returning to her childhood home, Lady Kiera Darby hopes her beloved brother Trevor and the merriment of the Hogmanay Ball will distract her. But when a caretaker is murdered and a grave is disturbed at nearby Dryburgh Abbey, Kiera is once more thrust into the cold grasp of death. While Kiera knows that aiding in another inquiry will only further tarnish her reputation, her knowledge of anatomy could make the difference in solving the case. But agreeing to investigate means Kiera must deal with the complicated emotions aroused in her by inquiry agent Sebastian Gage. When Gage arrives, he reveals that the incident at the Abbey was not the first - some fiend is digging up old bones and holding them for ransom. Now they must catch the grave robber… before another victim winds up six feet under.

Narration Throw Me for Loop

Would you consider the audio edition of A Grave Matter to be better than the print version?

No. But the audio version is convenient during my drive to work and back.


Who was your favorite character and why?

Lady Darby is a bundle of contradictions. I only wish she wouldn't "retell" her entire backstory every couple chapters.


Would you be willing to try another one of Heather Wilds’s performances?

No. Heather Wilds needs some major work. Where do I start? Her sense of a sentence is "off" -- the pacing stops and starts in the wrong places. She needs less monotone and more delivery. She's good at Scots and other dialects, but the voice she uses for Lady Darby or exposition is awful. She puts the emphasis on the wrong words so much that I find myself re-narrating aloud in the car -- in essence, fixing her work. I just wonder if anyone else is noticing? Listening to these parts of the book is like fingernails on a chalkboard.

Excellent

I enjoyed "A grave matter". I like it when Lady Darby solves the mystery and of course Sebastian Gage. Looking forward to reading the next Lady Darby mystery. I love the descriptions of the places in Scotland.
