    Becky, have you read the next in the series ‘Bury Your Dead’? Not so cozy, although a brilliant piece of writing. I am waiting for her new one to come into the library. She is one of my favourite writers.


  2. No, I haven’t got to “Bury Your Dead” yet. I’m working my way through the series at a rather slowish pace. I’ll read it anyway – even if there is more gore. Penny’s writing is lovely.
