    3 1/2 stars. Murder and archaeology are two things I love and when you combine them in a good story that is even better. Catherine and fellows go to Catherine's home to clear a friend charged with stealing a rare artifact. Of course, murder soon follows but Catherine is also plagued by her distant relationship with her family. Lots of drama but a good read and it is nice to find out a little more about Catherine's family. 3 1/2 stars.

    Great mystery I have read many of Ms. Vandgraff's books and they have all been good. This one is no exception. There is a mysterious theft, a friend accused, who Catherine and her friends need to save, a murder and Catherine almost gets killed as well, then her father is arrested for the murder! As if he would nearly kill his daughter trying to cover it up! She doesn't remember what happened because she had a head injury. There are many suspects and Catherine and her friends have their work cut o Great mystery I have read many of Ms. Vandgraff's books and they have all been good. This one is no exception. There is a mysterious theft, a friend accused, who Catherine and her friends need to save, a murder and Catherine almost gets killed as well, then her father is arrested for the murder! As if he would nearly kill his daughter trying to cover it up! She doesn't remember what happened because she had a head injury. There are many suspects and Catherine and her friends have their work cut out for them. You'll never guess who the bad guy is. As usual the book is well written and edited. One little thing caught my attention as an editing error. It doesn't effect the story but I'm a retired nurse and it was hard to ignore. At one point Catherine's mother suffers a broken arm. Later it is found to be a compound fracture. A compound fracture is one where the skin is priced by a piece of the bone that is sharp from the break. It is bloody, extremely painful, and requires emergency surgery to fix, usually with screws. Even if they didn't use screws in this time period the nurse would not just set it and leave it to for a day or two recommending they get an xray days later. But like I said, most people wouldn't even notice the error and it doesn't distract from the story. So I would recommend this book to anyone who likes stories set in the 1930's, enjoys mysteries, and a nice sweet clean romance.

    Interesting Read I have enjoyed this series to date and certainly recommend it to those looking for an interesting read. There were so many characters who easily could have been the murderer that I gave up trying to figure out who before the end of the book. I will say I had a little trouble keeping the characters straight because of the various names but that was just me. I did feel the ending was a little overly dramatic and not really necessary. If you haven’t given this series a try check it Interesting Read I have enjoyed this series to date and certainly recommend it to those looking for an interesting read.

    Another delightful Between war novel of broken British aristocracy, independent progeny - in this case a daughter, who would not inherit if there WAS money, and a mystery on a dig. Add in a romantic interest, British academia and “ filthy” weather in Cornwall and its a great”cozy mystery” but on steroids. Excellent and absorbingly confusing plot, intelligent dialogue and description make it a winner for a mental vacation !

    Terrific! Loved it! This is better than the first book in the series, which was excellent! Catherine and Harry are great characters, with interesting personalities. Through trial and error, they have learned to support and help each other! Set in Oxford in 1935, all the characters are experiencing a different world and learning how to deal with all the changes! This is an exciting investigation with a thrilling finale!

    Mystery, Murder, and Mayhem I thoroughly enjoyed all three Catherine Tregowyn Mysteries and hold there will be more. The characters and their interrelationships are well developed, the mysteries completely puzzling, and the resolutions perfection, especially since I was unable to solve them until Catherine did.

    Could not put it down Again strong well developed characters and outstanding job of putting the story in that strange time. Worry about what the Germans were doing but more so of the potential of another war.

    More great fun Set in the mid 1930s this series of mysteries is a diverting read. This is the third and I have enjoyed all three. I enjoy this historical period and the characters and the mysteries are a welcome escape in these trying times. I regret U shall have to wait for more.

    Fantastic! I loved this book. You should definitely read the first two books in this series before this one. While it will stand alone, it's much better if you know the background. Very exciting and I didn't see the culprit until the end. Fantastic! I loved this book. You should definitely read the first two books in this series before this one.

    Great series in 1935 England Oxford dons. Romance. History. And murders. This three book series puts you in 1930's Oxford, with many bizarre characters, some impoverished nobility, and (of course) the odd villain. Great series in 1935 England Oxford dons. Romance.

    I loved this story! The characters were very believable, most were endearing, and the plot was easily followed through all it's twists and turns. The ending was a bit of a surprise, due to the several red herrings dropped. I highly recommend this story, the author and the series. I loved this story!

    Good Agatha Christie-ish mystery. However, the ending seemed to be contrived as if the author couldn't figure out whodunnit and therefore threw in another ending. The chosen murderer could have still been used but with other, more appropriate motives. Disappointing. Good Agatha Christie-ish mystery.

    Book 3 in the series gains momentum and we visit Catherine's home and parents in this investigation of an archaeologic theft. A romance is recovered and the heroine addresses her tattered relationship with her parents.

    Fun romp through history! Ms. Vandagriff once again comes out with another fun, engaging mystery full of life and color. Her character development is wonderful, and the setting she evokes rings true from beginning to end! I loved this book!

    Wonderful. Best one yet in this series! The only mistake I caught was just a your/you're one. Too involved in the story to even notice anything else. Wonderful. Best one yet in this series!

    Nice period piece. Relaxing read noting the changing world brought about by WWI and the Great Depression. All the usual characters for a cozy English mystery.

    Lots of suspects but who "done it." Enjoyable! Clever story! Interesting characters! All combine to create a delightful tale. From early Roman ruins and Saxons churches to murder!

    Another great read. The plot twists and turns and again the character Catherine is fraught with inner turmoil. Harry is her perfect Watson. I hope there are more in this series.

    The main. characters are engaging. Too many suspects, too many crimes. Lagged in the middle....

    it was a good old rollicking adventure! I liked that Cath made up with her parents after she has quite a few flaws of her own! looks like she found her man in Harry !

    Lovely setting and era I really like the Oxford/London setting and the main characters are great, especially Catherine. I hope the series keeps going.

    All 3 were great. I read Murder at Oxford because I had spent a couple of months at Oxford and loved it. It wasn't high literature but it just captured my imagination and I read it in 2 days and rushed to get the other two Tregowyn books, this one and Murder in the Jazz Band. I read all three in a matter of days. Sorry there are only three. So entertaining. Thanks G. G. All 3 were great.
