The latest mystery by Elizabeth J. Duncan finds Penny Brannigan, the main character in the series, stumbling upon a dead body at Gwrych Castle in North Wales. She was painting the castle scene as the fourth in a series she intended to donate to the upcoming fundraiser. But when Penny notices a truck remaining in the parking lot after the workers had gone home, and decides to investigate the grounds, she finds the body of one John Hardwick. The plot thickens to involve an old grudge and some letters from the 1920s, written by the grandmother of a friend of Penny’s. Duncan writes very descriptive novels that are set in the countryside of Wales and are very “bloodless” mysteries, perfect for those fans who prefer this genre.
