    1 thought on “Murder of the Bride”

    1. Not the best in the seriesI've read the first few books in this series and enjoyed them. This one seems rushed, the dialogue is unnatural and the story just too farfetched. Way too many characters and not enough time to develop them. I had to keep referring to the cast list in the beginning to remind myself who each person was. I'm afraid this one has soured me on the series.

    2. This is my first time reading a Rex Graves novel and I have to say it was really good. Rex Graves was funny and intelligent. Looking at reading the other novels in this series.

Perhaps not, as the reception at the bride’s family coun [...]

    4. Loved it! A classic who-done-it.The butler did it in the drawing room with a candlestick! Picture the tried and true who-dun-it mystery and you have C.S. Challinor’s “Murder of the Bride.” In the fifth installment of her Rex Graves Mystery Series, Challinor offers up yet another entertaining and often humorous adventure.Barrister and amateur sleuth Rex Graves and his fiancée Helen are off to Derbyshire, England for the wedding of a former student. Almost immediately upon their arrival at [...]

    5. "Murder of the Bride" was another excellent story in this series of books. I have to say it's even better than the "Murder on the Moor" and had more interesting characters in it too. With a wedding event, there was a huge selection of "suspects" to choose from and considering all the secrets that were being uncovered throughout the story, it's very fitting that it wasn't easy to properly predict who the killer actually was and don't worry, I shan't reveal it here; that'd be rude as well as disre [...]

    6. Scottish Barrister Rex Graves and his fiancée Helen have been invited to a wedding in England after which they play on taking a walking holiday. The bride to be, Polly is a former student of Helen's who lives with her mother in what some might call a faux castle. The bride and her mother were deserted by Polly's father years before in mysterious circumstances.Aside from the excellent food and beverages, the wedding offers an opportunity for Rex to meet some of Helen's co workers and in particul [...]

    9. Just finished another in the Rex Graves series. Noticed something different. In the last two I have read in this series, the murderer is not one of the main characters, they aren't in the group of suspects. They either have a brief introduction at the beginning and then don't show up until the end when Rex figures it out. Not a usual plot device. In this one, the police and Rex thought they had the murderer and then it turned out to be someone else who wasn't at the wedding.

    10. A country house, a wedding, a very pregnant bride and arsenic. This is just such a fun read, Challinor does a great job with time and place. Love Rex and his constant quest for a pint and rally enjoyed this old style cozy. Plenty of humor and red herrings kept me interested to the end. Arc by NetGalley.

    11. Scottish barrister Rex Graves joins his fiancee, Helen, at the wedding of one of her former students. The weather is dreary, the bride very pregnant, and when they get back to the bride's home for the reception, people start to die. Rex volunteers to help the police, and finds a murderer for them. But is it the right person?

    12. 2.5 stars. I was disappointed. I was really looking forward to a new (to me) author for cozy mysteries. I particularly like the ones set in Great Britain. Although the plot was not predictable I just did not enjoy it as much as I hoped. Perhaps I just wasn't in the mood for this book at this time. I will try another one by this author some time in the future to see if it was just me.

    13. This is an elegant mystery in the style of a Golden Age classic with a reasonably closed set of possible suspects and several deaths to investigate. I was hooked by a simple and direct approach to storytelling.opionator.wordpress/2012/0

    14. A lovely read. Will look for the others Challinor has written.Very enjoyable, and the plot was very well done. I did not figure out the murderer! Also, I enjoyed the humor.

    15. This was a comfortable cozy read with enough twists to keep things interesting. I will look for more in this series.

    16. C.S. Challinor delivers another well written and highly readable mystery that will satisfy cozy readers.

    17. These cozy murder mysteries call back to the mysteries of Agatha Christie. They are fun, quick reads that usually have pretty stock characters but its a nice little mind exercise.

    18. What more can you ask for -- a wedding, a pregnant bride, a timid groom, food poisoning and a crazy family. Oh yes, a sprinkle of dead bodies. Enjoy!
