    1. 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 Antiques 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 quilt. Haydn Williams, a local sheep farmer, bri [...]

    2. 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 antique TV show has come to town and people are taking their antiques 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 unlikable.Penny has solved many mysteries in the past. There i [...]

    3. In Murder on the Hour, the 7th book in the Penny Brannigan series, a popular Antiques Roadshow-esque show is coming to Llanelen and after local woman Catrin brings in an old family quilt, she is found dead in her home. Meanwhile, Pennny meets one of the judges at the Antiques show and Gareth, soon retiring, begins to contemplate his life after retiring and life without Penny.One 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 [...]

    4. 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 Antiques Valuation Show comes to town, old secrets of treasure come to life.Penny seems to have [...]

    5. 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 D.I. Gareth Davies.In 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, Antiques Cymru, to the town. People search for an object or two they can present for evaluation and maybe a [...]

    6. I loved the premise of this cozy mystery but I have to say that the ending left me feeling a bit aggravated. However, I will read other books in this series before writing off the author.

    7. I like this series about a pair of women in a small Welsh town who run a beauty shop. The setting is so cozily described that I feel I could be strolling down a cobbled Llanelen lane with the characters. In this book, an 'Antique Roadshow' type TV show visits the town, and murder ensues.

    8. I was a little slow at first, but picked up as it moved on. I didn't realize it was the 7th book in a series and that might explain why I didn't care so much for the beginning. I think I will go back and at least read the first book.

    9. I was very happy to see a new Penny Brannigan mystery. This has a nice little mystery involving an antique quilt and an antique clock. A mysterious treasure map and a murder round out the storyline

    10. I liked the scenic descriptions but I would have liked some closure about Michael. The motive for the murder (or what led to it) seemed a bit far fetched.

    11. Got this audiobook from library to entertain me while driving. It was suitable for that task but probably not a series I️ would read.

    12. I've enjoyed reading author Elizabeth J. Duncan's Shakespearean in the Catskills series and I am excited to have found another of her series!

    13. A fun cozy mystery. I am enjoying the series but I think reading books in order would have been more enjoyable for me.

    14. I love this series and look forward to reading each book. I love this book particularly for the ending. ☺️

    25. I hadn't read the other books in this series but I only felt a little lost. People were introduced smoothly without too much fanfare. The mystery was interesting and there were some parts of the story that I suspect regular series readers will enjoy. Penny Brannigan is helping the Welsh version of Antiques Roadshow visit her small village. I have actually had the chance to go to bring some items to the American version when they were in my area and the description is very similar. Unfortunately, [...]

If the murder victim weren’t one of the most likeable, innocent, and most promising young pers [...]
