    Dollycas’s Thoughts Escape to Montauk with interior designer Meg Barrett. She is excited to help her friend Elle Warner inventory and move the furnishings of some bungalows on the Harrison Falks estate. They end finding more than they bargained for when they find a skeleton in a secret room. It isn’t long before the remains are identified as the son of Harrison Falks. Rumor had him leaving the area 20 years ago in possession of a well known piece of art created by Andy Warhol.

Her bones may be the next ones found as she is installing herself right on the killer’s radar. I really like Meg. She may be hearing impaired but she knows how to deal with that and most of the time the disability doesn’t present any problems…but, of course…there are those times…where it gets her into a bunch of trouble. I like the way she works together with Elle and that they each know their strengths and weaknesses and really balance each other. The house that Meg is working on sounded wonderful before she decorated it but amazing after so worked her magic on the place. We meet Harrison Falk, his family, caretaker and staff. Eclectic is a great way to describe this bunch. Old money, a huge estate, with so many secrets. Great descriptions by this author make is so easy to visualize the vast estate and these characters. I really like the way the author weaves history into this story and introduces us to Montauk residents of the past and their stories. This time I found the information about pop art and artists very interesting. The plot has some nice twists and the pacing is absolutely perfect. There is a good dose of humor and a bit of romance sprinkled throughout the story too. This was a fun read and I can’t wait to return to Montauk.

In the meantime, she agrees to assist her best friend take inventory and clean out a bungalow on Montauk. The bungalow is part of the estate of a wealthy art broker, Harrison Falks. Meg makes a shocking discovery when she finds an old skeleton hidden in the bungalow. The skeleton is identified as Harrison’s son who disappeared twenty years ago along with one of Harrison’s expensive Warhol paintings. Meg becomes very curious as to what happened to the younger Falks and proceeds to investigate, but she comes up against more family drama than she anticipated. This is the second book in the “Hamptons Home & Garden Mystery”. I have to admit, the series won me over with the first book especially because it is set in my own area. Readers even get a little lesson on vintage items and what they are worth. Meg is a wonderful character. She is strong willed and probably takes more dangerous risks than she should, but what amateur sleuth doesn’t? There’s also a bit of romance, but it doesn’t overpower the mystery. The mystery is still the main part of the story. The Falks family certainly is a prime example of an eccentric group. The author does a great job of showing the readers exactly how eccentric they are. She, also, does a great job in describing the setting. She transports the reader right to Long Island. The story moves at a nice, steady pace. There are a few twists and turns along the way. I’m looking forward to reading the next installment. Disclosure: The publisher provided me with a copy of this book to review. This did not influence my thoughts and opinions in any way. All opinions expressed are my own.

    Meg and her friend Elle are cleaning out a cottage when they stumble upon a skeleton sealed in a forgotten room. While the identity of the skeleton isn’t really a mystery, it does give rise to a lot of questions. Who sealed the man in the room? Where is the woman he supposed ran off with? Or is she the killer? Where is the painting the pair supposedly stole? As you can see, there is plenty of compelling stuff here for a good mystery.

Sadly, the book is slowed way down by Meg living her life, including things she finds for her decorating business. Ironically, I found two sub-plots that doesn’t tie into the mystery to be more compelling than the mystery for much of the book. We do get some great twists before the end, and the characters are great. Sadly, it isn’t enough to raise the book above average. Read my full review at Carstairs Considers.

    I really can’t leave an accurate review for this book. I couldn’t finish it. I was listening to this in audio version from my library. The narration was so bad it was impossible to follow the story. The narration was rushed with a silly sing song type of voice. Words were often mispronounced ( especially the names of Long Island towns). I may try this again in e-book version. I grew up on LI and love a good cozy.

At the same time he went missing a famous Warhol painting did as well. Meg starts snooping around the Hampton's pop art past and finds lots of family drama. She also meets Byron a very handsome man who kind of wines and dines her. Since Cole is not in the picture anymore as he went back home she is need of a little dining with a handsome man. Though she is not the only one after the man. The mystery was really good and I was kind of surprise with who the murder was which made me wonder if I wasn't paying attention good enough as I normally can figure it out...lol. Oh, well sometimes I get stumped. It has some great characters and I like Meg and I always wished I had an eye for detail and could be a designer of sorts. I would love to be in interior designer. I like her friend Elle as well. I am really curious about how this thing with Byron is going to pan out because of something at the end. Overall, I enjoyed it and if you like cozies and a home and garden theme then you should check out this series.

Meg Barrett and her friend Elle are busy taking inventory of Harrison Falks’ estate when they uncover a skeleton in a (previously) hidden room. When the remains are identified as those of Pierce Falks, Harrison’s son, who went missing more than a decade ago, along with one of Harrison’s famous Andy Warhol paintings, the mystery is afoot, and Meg is determined to get answers. With a family full of suspects and a wealth of secrets, the answers don’t come easily, but, eventually, they do come. What I liked most about this book was Meg herself. Meg is hearing-impaired, yet all mention of her hearing aids seems quite natural and, in contrast to several books I have read with disabled protagonists, not in the least bit overdone. Meg is resourceful and tenacious, two qualities which help her to persevere beyond the family drama to solve the mystery. An added bonus is the subplot surrounding Meg’s cajoled “adoption” of an overweight and officious cat named Jo. Their adventures add a touch of humor that really brightens the story. A second subplot, involving the missing Warhol “Aqua Net” painting, was likewise intriguing. While I liked the book overall, there are a couple of things that would make it even better. First, there were several parts where the book was bogged down with lengthy descriptions of Meg’s day-to-day living. These, if shortened (or fewer) would allow the reader to gain insight into her life, but as written only tended to divert attention from the mystery. Second, I listened to the audio version, and, in my opinion, the reader didn’t do the story justice. The pacing was so slow that I needed to speed up the narration, and the pronunciation was just off. In fairness, this probably contributed to my frustration with the more descriptive passages in the book. Despite the issue with the audio version, I found Hearse and Gardens to be an enjoyable read. The mystery itself was duly suspenseful, with enough twist and turns to keep the reader guessing. Although I had my suspicions, I was not fully certain of the culprit until the end of the novel. Because Meg is an appealing character and because the mystery itself was well-conceived, I look forward to reading the third book in the series, perhaps just not in audio format.

Meg's business partner and friend, Elle Warner invites Meg to help her 'pick over' the antiques in her 'Uncle' Harrison's bungalows. Uncle Harrison is from the days of the 'Pop' art period. He built his home, 'Sandringham' a few acres from legendary artist Andy Warhol. Harrison Falks is an elderly man now, and misfortune has followed him for several decades. When Uncle Harrison's dead son, Pierce is found in the bungalow, his misfortunes continue, including a steady decline of mental and physical abilities. Meg feels something is not 'right' and she proceeds to get more involved with the persons living at Sandringham and the tragic tale of Pierce. Meanwhile, she has to fight the battle of her home, inherit a Maine Coon Cat, and more while living with a natural disability of impaired hearing. I'm quite impressed with the naturalness that the character of Meg is drawn by the Author. Her hearing impediment is recognized but it doesn't stop Meg from living her life fully. Nor is she embarrassed by something that is not her fault. I also liked that Ms. Bridge chose to not stress the sometimes vocal issues that the hearing impaired are pressed by. This is implied and needn't be stressed. Excellent character development in my opinion. Looking forward to reading the next book in the series.

    I really enjoyed "Better Homes and Corpses" and I liked "Hearse and Gardens", especially since it had more of Elle, the main character's best friend and fellow antique aficionado. I listened to this on Hoopla through my library and enjoyed the narrator, but the formula was more of the same. I'm not sure I would recommend that people read the second in the series unless they loved the first one and want more.

    I love any series by the beach. I know very little about the Montauk area but this was informative. Also had another favorite in it: an estate home. As a designer I enjoyed her work on the houses and using antiques. I'm sure it's good to have romantic tension with 2 guys after one woman but I'm not really into that.
