On a bright, spring afternoon the body of George Wright, a childhood friend of criminal consultant Edmund DeCleryk, is discovered at a cemetery where casualties of the War of 1812 are buried. After conducting an autopsy, the medical examiner determines that George has been murdered, the cause of death by poisoning. Lighthouse Cove Police Chief Carrie Ramos hires Ed to investigate, with his spunky wife, Annie assisting him.

Suspects include a physician’s assistant, college student and a family member, among others; however, George’s demise may be the result of secrets that have surfaced from the grave. You’ll discover what Ed found on the beach in Murder in the Museum and how that, and an artifact dating back to the early 1800s, are linked to this untimely death.

Annie loves to cook, and at the end of the book she shares recipes for meals she prepared for friends and loved ones.

This was such a great cozy mystery! When the body of George Wright is discovered at a cemetery, it becomes clear that this is not going to be an easy case for criminal consultant Ed DeCleryk to solve. George was one of his childhood friends, and Ed is determined to get to the bottom of the who and the why of his murder,but it seems that every lead Ed gets turns out to be entirely plausible.

I had no idea who murdered George, so it was great to follow the clues along with Ed, to find the true culprit. Murder in the Cemetery was as well thought out murder mystery, and we are treated to some delicious recipies at the end of the book!

This was book two in the Edmund DeCleryk Mystery and it was easy to read this as a stand alone, I found the characters easy to love and the setting of Lighthouse Cove is just perfect for this mystery.
