    Description

    After many years working around the world for an international charity in the late 1960s, Eleanor Trewynn has retired to the relative quiet of a small town in Cornwall. But her quiet life is short-lived when, due to her experience, the Commonwealth Relations Office reaches out to her to assist in a secret conference that is to take place in a small hotel outside the historical village of Tintagel.

    Meanwhile, her niece, Detective Sergeant Megan Pencarrow, is investigating the disappearance of a local solicitor when she is assigned to help provide security for the conference. Two African students, refugees from Ian Smith's Rhodesia, arrive for the conference, escorted by Megan's bête noire from Scotland Yard. They are followed by two mysterious and sinister Londoners, whose allegiances and connections to the conference and the missing solicitor are unclear. With a raging storm having trapped everyone in the hotel, the stage is set for murder, and it's up to Eleanor and Megan to uncover the truth before more lives are lost.

    We NEED More Cornish Mystery books

    Any additional comments?

    Enjoyable, and easy, listening! I enjoy the healthy, loving and respectful, relationship between Eleanor and her niece, Meagan.
    For others that like to know things like this before purchasing: While there is some cursing in the book, there are no f-bombs.

    p.c.

    offended by homosexuality stuff. I know it's not fashionable, but I don't like that kind of sexual detail. yucky. darn. I love the characters, but the p.c. sell-out is a deal breaker for me.

    A true mystery right to the end!

    Excellent exploration, development and interweaving of relationships and the sociocultural themes. The writer truly has kept to the tradition that has made British Mysteries great. She brings unique plots and twists without ignoring the appropriate struggles of gender, race, ethnicity and equality of the times.

    Very slow

    I really enjoyed the first two books in this series. This one moved very slowly. There are endless descriptive narrative of scenarios and interior decor. The climatic chase scene took several chapters as the reader is treated to description of flora and fauna and terrain and fog on the moors. I found my self skipping chapters only to find the story had not moved forward. I like the characters. The mystery in this one was weak, relying scenic prose to carry story.

    Annoying

    This book seems as if it can’t figure out what decade it’s supposed to be set in. The 30s, 40s, 50s, 60s? The narrator seems to make the lead character attempt to be Miss Marple. She is no Miss Marple nor is this book anything near an Agatha Christie. Half the time she is now reading I keep waiting to hear something referring to the head foot men, or the downstairs parlor maid… when you have the niece/police woman referring to something that seems to be 60s-based. All in all so annoying I will finish this book and not read the rest.

    Too much time spent describing the country side

    I really enjoyed the Daisy Dalrymple series but I find that I do not enjoy Ms Dunn’s other books as much. Perhaps she tired of the character or felt that she had exhausted the potential for new adventures. However as a reader I tend to feel a friendship towards the protagonist in various series and resent losing them to new characters so I am probably being unfair to this book but this is my review for what it’s worth and I probably would not suggest it to a friend.

    Lovely cozy mystery

    Carole Dunn has struck just the right tone for a cozy mystery in “Buried in the Country.” I liked the main characters as each lent that balance between being familiar to the reader, as well as giving the impression that there is more to each than we know. In spite of the fact that someone has to kill someone else, I often laughed at the antics of the dog who has quite a distinct personality. As with all good mystery writers, Dunn drops bits and pieces of clues throughout and we must gather all of them. Of course the entire plot is revealed, but not until the end of the last chapter. Some references to violence, but nothing graphic, and a good bit of edginess. I will enjoy reading more of Dunn’s books in the future when I am looking for an engaging, light read.

    Get to know and love the people, love the reader!

    I love these books, and by now the people have become friends. Yea for cosy mysteries. One question, Why must the leader of the police it seems in most cosies be so....... although he was a bit nicer in this one.??

    enormously entertaining.

    I love these mysteries by Carola Dunn because they are just very good stories. The characters are really so entertaining and some quite funny. zOnce I start one of these books it quite difficult to put down. The narration by Wanda McCaddon is just right. She has just the right voice for these stories. All around good entertainment.

    enjoyable as always, narrator warm and delightful.

    I can't resist Aunt Eleanor, and I am glad I read this book, but it was much too long. Too many details by far about car chase and highway directions, and also too many details about the hunt over the moors by foot. Those parts should have been an hour shorter. The students from Zimbabwe and the politics were very interesting. The subplot about the Cornish lawyer was very good with an unexpected twist. Very satisfying ending.
