The Cold Light of Mourning

By Elizabeth J. Duncan

Anywhere in the United Kingdom is the perfect setting for a good murder mystery, and this book's setting in the rustic hamlet of Llanelen, Wales is delightful.  I discovered Elizabeth J. Duncan by searching for books set in Wales, and she is now on my must-read list.

The village and countryside could almost be a main character, yet there are plenty of interesting people to go around.  Amateur sleuth Penny Brannigan, owner of a manicure shop, is a likeable character, and there's a hint of romance with Gareth, the chief inspector.

I highly recommend this first book in what I hope is a long series, especially to those who enjoy a British mystery.
