    This is the first book I have read by this author and I was pleasantly surprised by how much I liked the story In the town of Llanelen the residents are excited that Antiues Cymru a similar take on a popular national TV show is coming to their Welsh town Everyone is wondering if a lost and forgotten treasure in their attic could be worth money As some residents dig through their treasures Catrin Bellis decides to bring her family heirloom uilt Haydn Williams a local sheep farmer brings a long case case As the filming day approaches both are excited to see what news they will getWhile some are surprised with what their treasure holds someone is not so lucky and murder and foul play has struck the uaint little townAmateur sleuth Penny Brannigan is shocked to hear the news and she is determined to get to the bottom of this tragic eventThis book will keep you on the edge of your seat as you learn of dark secrets family history and much The author has a talented way of keeping the reader intrigued all the way through The smooth writing flow and vivid descriptions have made me a fan of this series Although this is the 7th in the series I felt comfortable getting to know the characters and it was easy to catch up with everythingI will be reading in this wonderful seriesI received an ARC of this book from NETGALLEY in exchange for my fair and honest review

    This is the 7th book in the Penny Brannigan mystery series I have read all seven and to me this is a very good mystery series The location is Wales and Penny Brannigan co owns a spa in town An antiue TV show has come to town and people are taking their antiues in to see if they have a unexpected treasure There is a murder that day What is different in this book is that the character is likable Most cozy books the character is unlikablePenny has solved many mysteries in the past There is a mysterious map that is torn in half Where is the other half? Is the murder related to the past when the map was drawn This is one of my favorite cozy reads due to the small town atmosphere and the characters The crime portion is always different than most books I think this book was one of my favorites in the series You probably wouldn't have to start with book one to follow along but I think after you read this book you will want to go back to the beginning It is a very good cozy mystery series set in Wales

    In Murder on the Hour the 7th book in the Penny Brannigan series a popular Antiues Roadshow esue show is coming to Llanelen and after local woman Catrin brings in an old family uilt she is found dead in her home Meanwhile Pennny meets one of the judges at the Antiues show and Gareth soon retiring begins to contemplate his life after retiring and life without PennyOne of the biggest draws of this series is how vibrant the characters are It's so easy to fall into a story when you feel like you're a part of the locale And that's what this series excels at doing along with the really great plots to sew everything together into a great cozy mysteryThe main plot Catrin's murder was riveting one of those plots where you think you have a pretty good idea of what's going to happen and then suddenly it all gets blown to shreds and off you go againThere is one line in the book that sticks with me When your parents are telling you about your grandparents and great grandparents you don't care And then when you're older and you do care your parents are no longer alive to answer uestions or recount family history So so true I've recently begun researching my mother's side of the family and have hit a brick wall There's no one alive who can answer the uestions I have So sad that people never get the time to record or write down all those family stories and so many are lostOverall a great read and one that I will recommend to other readers

    This is the 2nd book of the Welsh series that I've read and it was too cozy for me as well as a bit disjointed I thought the story skipped around too much and some of the characters could have been eliminated as they just seemed to be fillerPenny is a local artist amateur gardener nail spa employee as well as the former girlfriend of Detective Chief Inspector Gareth Davies When a national Antiues Valuation Show comes to town old secrets of treasure come to lifePenny seems to have a gift for sleuthing so when 12 of an old map shows up a photograph of 3 young men in uniform and then a woman with a uilt that had something tucked into it is murdered Penny the DCI on the case begin an investigation which seems to include most of the rest of the townTotally unbelievable not well fitting was the part of the woman who worked as a clean up person at an art school and pulled numerous original sketches out of a dustbin saved them Turns out her sketches were by Stuart Sutcliff Jon Lennon when they were in art school together This did not fit at all nor did the side story around itI was bored skimmed most of this will not be reading another

    The local welsh version of Antiues Roadshow is coming to town and brings up some hidden secrets I have very much enjoyed this series and the characters it portrays This entry in the series was disjointed and improbable The main plot line felt short on substance and there were a few additional stories I hesitate to call then subplots that were built up and then just dumped leaving me to wonder why they were there at all Florence's wonderful improbable sketches; Penny's relationship with Michael; the accident in the woods that lead Penny and Michael to spend the night lost I had some serious frustrations with the improbability of the main plot line and the conclusion I find it impossible to believe that a two inch suare piece of paper survived and was never discovered in a uilt that was used daily for 100 years? No one washed this uilt for 100 years? or ran their hands over it and noticed paper?? The conclusion also made no sense view spoiler that two boys find a roman cache of jewels and make a map and rebury it but then forget about it totally but that the third kid who was not involved and did not know what it was remembered it enough to make it into a family legend that someone would kill for hide spoiler

    All of the novels in this series are set in the small fictional Welsh town of Llanelin and feature Penny Brannigan part owner of a local beauty salon known as The Spa her friend and partner Victoria and DI Gareth DaviesIn MURDER ON THE HOUR Gareth Davies has recently retired and Penny isn't seeing so much of him The main action centres around the coming of popular national tv show Antiues Cymru to the town People search for an object or two they can present for evaluation and maybe a chance to be featured on televisionThe novel has all the elements of an entertaining cozy and works uite well as a stand alone although I undoubtedly would have been better off had I read any of the earlier novels Nothing happens in this small town without most of the residents being aware of it and yet a murder takes place and there are few clues why
