Grace Interrupted by Julie Hyzy.*

In the second Manor House mystery, we are reintroduced to Grace Wheaton, curator of the stately Marshfield Manor.

Grace's predecessor, Abe, had arrranged months ago for a Civil War reenactment group to use the grounds of the Manor for their re-enactment. Grace expects that there will be some disruption of the day-to-day functioning of the Manor, but she never realized just how much.

First, two women try to force their way onto the grounds to attack Zachary Kincade (the aforementioned soldier) attacks one Kincade is found later that night, stabbed to death, there is no shortage of suspects.

The police seem to be focussing on Grace's employee, but Grace is certain that he is innocent and sets out to prove it. Her attempts to stay out of trouble this time are unsuccessful, but she does determine the identity of the killer.

Hyzy has written another well-contructed mystery with a charming and realistic female protagonist with whom we look forward to becoming better acquainted.

*FTC Full Disclosure: Many thanks to the publisher, who sent me a copy of the book for review purposes.
