Murder in Haunted Cornwall

On the eve of World War II, Dr. Benjamin Bones is at war with himself. While most young men are being sent away to fight the Germans, Ben is chosen to serve on English soil. Ordered to move to  wild, beautiful Cornwall, he must trade his posh London office and stylish city life for the tiny village of Birdswing, population 1,221 souls. But leaving his home and shelving his career ambitions aren’t the only sacrifices facing Ben. His unfaithful wife, Penny, is accompanying him to Cornwall in a last-ditch effort to save their marriage. But moments after their arrival, Penny is run down in the street, and Ben is almost fatally injured. And while the villagers assume Penny’s death to be an accident, Ben quickly deduces it was murder.

As he convalesces in Fenton House, which the locals call haunted, Ben meets Birdswing’s eccentric inhabitants. Mr. Gaston, the volunteer air warden, obsessed with defending his village against Nazi spies; Mrs. Cobblepot, a sweet old lady who believes in fairies; and Lady Juliet Linton, a prickly, headstrong aristocrat who won’t take no for an answer. While adapting to life during Britain’s “War at Home,” a time of ration books, victory gardens, bomb shelters, and the Blackout, Ben sets about solving the mystery of Penny’s murder—with a little help from Lady Juliet and the Fenton House ghost.

Marriage Can Be Murder(Dr. Benjamin Bones Mysteries #1) is the new cozy mystery series from New York Times and USA Today Bestselling author Emma Jameson. She is also the author of the Lord & Lady Hetheridge mystery series.

    A wonderful book. Very well written. One grammatical error that I couldn't ignore--- the black Doctor's bag should read the doctor's black bag as I am sure it was the bag that was black and not the doctor. 😎

    Emma Jameson has done it again. Her characters are warm and funny and completely human. She got me on this one! I was convinced I had solved it then that twist at the end.... well played, Miss Emma, well played.
  • Love a good British mystery

    By 1952Ginger
    I love a good British mystery, especially those set during the war. Much like Agatha Christy, the characters can be rather quirky but very entertaining.
  • Good story

    By Addicted to books 17
    I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. I liked this story. The characters were fun and it kept you guessing. It was interesting to see Ben's reaction to lady Juliet, especially when she could carry him sounds in the beginning.

  • Ms Marple meets Dr Sloan

    The setting of the story being WWII, was a different period for me, but the characters made it pretty interesting. Dr. Ben was caring and compassionate and Juliet is quirky and you like them both.
