Summary

"Two ghosts troubled Dr. Benjamin Bones. One he feared would never release him. Another he worried might slip away, however much he tightened his grip...."
So begins Divorce Can Be Deadly, the long-awaited second book in Emma Jameson's wartime cozy mystery series. Return to Birdswing, a tiny Cornish village, in the bitter winter of 1939 and revisit old friends as they embark on more amateur sleuthing. Irrepressible Lady Juliet is taking a correspondence course in private detection and is vexed by the return of her soon-to-be ex-husband. Meanwhile, not only has Ben failed to realize the depth of her feelings for him, but his obsession with Lucy, the Fenton House ghost, grows stronger.
When a bloodless, half-naked corpse is discovered in a great house in a nearby village, Ben and Juliet must again follow the clues to solve the case. Join them as they pry into the secret lives of villagers in seemingly picture-perfect Barking, including a vicar who hides from his secretary, a baron haunted by the Great War, and a butler who just might have done it.
Brimming with romance, historical details, and warm humor, Divorce Can Be Deadly will prove itself worth the wait!

Absolutely charming!

Any additional comments?

In a class of its own when it comes to cozy mysteries. Reminiscent of Agatha Christie. Fun characters, light & clever humor, appealing mysteries. The narration was excellent. Highly recommended!

Not quite as boring as the first book.

This is the second book in the series. The first one bored me to tears. This book was slightly less boring but still difficult to get through. I'll listen to the other book I have (Dr. Bones and the Christmas Wish) but I doubt that I will be getting any others in the series.
