    1 thought on “Flowers For Her Grave

    1. I did like the concept of two older women trying to solve a murder. The characters themselves were solid, unlike some amateur sleuths who are ditzy.There wasn't much action in the story. It moved slower than I thought it would. It was just OK for me. I will probably try this author again.

    2. Flowers For Her Grave by Jean SheldonPublished by Bast PressA twenty-year-old mystery is about to come to life again, stirring up old doubts, old fears and, perhaps, old memories. On this, the twentieth anniversary of a murder and a disappearance, the Gazette, this small town's local paper, has run a story revisiting the long ago unsolved crime. Louise Vandenberg, the only surviving member of the family has just passed away. She chased the mystery for years, writing every clue into diaries, did [...]

    3. Good WhodunitI give 5 stars to any book I thoroughly enjoy whether it's a light read or a more intense, complex read. It also has to be a book I look forward to rereading. This book qualifies. While I figured out who was involved, the specifics of who did what and with what motivation eluded me, or perhaps I was content to let the story play out. I enjoyed the well-woven plot, the unexpected plot twists, and the red herrings. I am cautious about "cozy" mysteries as too many have the most ridicul [...]

    4. 5 star ratings are rare from me, and the only reason this book didn't get 5 stars was because of formatting issues in the book. Yes, I'm one of those people that nitpick, but this is my Kindle review so suck it up.That saidI LOVED this book!The characters, the plot, the idea that women in their sixties have active lives and are solving a 20 year old mystery.I loved it all. I normally don't take this long to finish a book so short (abut 280 pages), but school got in the way. I made the mistake of [...]

    5. I loved the plot and the fact that the leading characters were older ladies still looking for a bit of adventure. The characters were well-rounded and their motivations clear. However, I also feel that the story could have been written a little better. While action packed, I feel that some of the dialogue was a little too contrived and unbelievable and, for someone who loves rich details, descriptions were sorely lacking. Generally, I was a little bothered by some of what Ms. Sheldon wrote, but [...]

    6. I had a wonderful time reading Jean Sheldon’s Flowers For Her Grave. I just did not want to put it down. Once you enter the world of the book, the small town of Raccoon Grove, you remain captivated by her strong characters (both lovely and deplorable), crystal clear sense of place, two main characters that introduce the world of beauty pageants and journalism, and so many bewitching plot lines and possibilities that I just didn’t want it to end. Adding the gardens and the intrigue of a 20-ye [...]

    7. This was an absolutely fun book. I had the time of my life reading it and could hardly put it down! Here are two women different than night and day who are best of friends. When clues start popping up, they decide to look into a 20-year-old mystery and try to find out who murdered one of the town’s citizens. They are also curious as to what happened to the man’s 5-year-old daughter that same night. To top it off, a stranger arrives claiming to be the only living relative of the estate and he [...]

    8. Loved this mystery by Jean Sheldon. Her sleuths, Tracy and Kate, are a pair of witty and intrepid characters who want to know who killed Jack Vandenberg and what happened to his five-year-old daughter. Clues and cliff hangers kept me up past my bedtime. Tracy and Kate's investigation of this unsolved case has disturbed someone. Anonymous letters and a trashed newspaper office are only the tip of the iceburg. Add another murder, a house fire, and missing diaries, and you have some of what's roili [...]

    9. I won this book through First Reads. I was very excited to see it came signed. The book left me speechless. Never ever would I have thought that was the way it was going to turn out. There were so many could be suspects. It was refreshing to read a book with down to earth common characters, added plus that they were in their 60's. The ending was great, everything was figured out and topped off with a laugh about the overdue books!

    10. I hadn't read a mystery in quite some time, so I was excited to give this a go. Unfortunately, this story was not quite realistic and I didn't buy a lot of the conversations that she wrote in the book. I think that's my biggest pet peevewhen authors create a conversation that would never happen in real life. I liked the setting of the book and the garden aspect, but didn't really care for the story or the characters.

    11. This was an unexpectedly terrific book. I loved the characters, the plot, the writing, the setting. I bought it due to the "unsolved disappearance of a child 20 years ago" Marianne hook, and found it excellent. I hope Ms. Sheldon plans to write more about Raccoon Grove.

    12. This was a really fun read,characters are rich.Usually with mysteries you know how it's going to end before the last chapter is read, but I was still guessing right up to the end and I never saw it coming.

    13. This was an easy to read mystery with a a few twists and turns that were unexpected. The characters were believable, though they seemed a bit shallow at times, and the storyline was complex enough to keep the reader guessing but not terribly taxing. All in all an enjoyable read.

    14. A Jean Sheldon classic! Anyone that has read her books would agree that "Flowers for her Grave" is another gripping mystery that keeps the reader reading until the very last page while cheering for the characters. Congratulations to the author!

    15. I had a very hard time getting into this book. I was about a third of the way through, before I really started enjoying it.
