I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Ms. Clark's writing style was engaging. The narratives of the Maine geography and lore added to the enjoyment. Ms. Clark wrote a newspaper column for her local area in Maine, full of gardening, recipes, and nature. The column was called "From the Orange Mailbox: Notes from a Few Country Acres" which is also the name of her other book. Sadly these two books were her only books in print. She passed away at the age of 88.
Haji G. (Haji) - reviewed The Maine Mulch Murder (Wwl Mystery, 483) on
When Amy Creighton finds the body of a young man in a mulch pile, the sixty-year-old editor is as stunned as the rest of the peaceful community of Granton, Maine. But her sharp mind and eye for detail quickly pull her into a mystery that threatens to expose some dark secrets about the inhabitants of this historic locale.
I liked this book. There is always something happening or a question to be answered. Who was the victim? Why was he there? What are some of the locals up to and are they involved in the murder? The introduction of a new character two thirds into a book would normally irritate me, but this character is quite important and I really liked the end of the story. I had hoped this was part of a series, but it looks like it isn't unfortunately.
