Grace Cries Uncle

A Manor House Mystery, #6

I loved Grace Cries Uncle from the moment I opened the book! Grace is the curator and manager of Marshfield Manor in Emberstowne. A group of antique collectors have just arrived for a convention. Marshfield Manor is owned by a millionaire named Bennett Marshall that Grace may be related to. As if that isn't hectic enough, Grace is supposed to start DNA testing to see if she's related to Bennett when an FBI agent shows up who later turns up dead.

I just couldn't get enough of this story. There was so much going on and so many interesting characters that I was completely hooked.

I really enjoyed the characters and felt like I really got to know them while reading. This is the 6th story in the Manor House series and I am definitely going to be looking for more.


Book Blurb for Grace Cries Uncle

The New York Times bestselling author of the Manor House Mysteries and the White House Chef Mysteries shows how a blast from the past can spell trouble for Grace Wheaton…

When Grace’s estranged sister Liza shows up on her doorstep, the timing couldn’t be worse. Grace’s beloved boss and benefactor, Bennett Marshfield, has finally gotten her to agree to a DNA test to establish if he is, in fact, her uncle. If so, Grace would move from being the trusted curator and manager of Marshfield Manor to Bennett’s heir. And her duplicitous sister would be right behind her in the line of inheritance.

Liza is not the only mysterious visitor to arrive in town. A man claiming to be an FBI agent has shown up, and a swarm of avaricious antique collectors have descended on Emberstowne for a prestigious convention. When Bennett reveals he’s in mind to acquire a secret antique and the FBI agent turns up dead, the plot thickens. And Grace can’t help but wonder if Liza is at the center of it all…
