    GREAT READ!!!!!!

    I love discriptive authors, and believe me you will think you are in the room right alongside Grace. Enter into Marshfield Manor. You will smell the mustiness of the hundreds of books in the library, you will reach out your hand to feel the luxurious drapery. Julie Hyzy takes you into the Manor and out in the gardens. Then you're caught up in the plots and into the characters. This book grips you and won't let you put it aside for fear of not knowing what's going to happen next. You won't be disappointed. Ms. Hyzy knows how to build the suspense and catch you off-guard when you think you know how the book will end.I could not put this book down and now I await anxiously her next "Grace" book!!

    Another Murder at Marshfield Manor!

    The second installment of the Manor House Mysteries finds Grace Wheaton still getting acclimated to her new job as curator of Marshfield Manor. This time, Civil War reenactors have taken over the grounds, and are setting up their camps and preparing for battle. When one of them turns up dead, there's no shortage of suspects, including Grace's friend Jack.

    Once again, Julie Hyzy brings us a winning story and cast of characters. One of the other reviewers likened Grace to an old friend, and I can definitely relate to that as she seems like someone I've known and liked for a long time. I find her assistant, Frances, to be an entertaining sidekick (yes, she's annoying, but there's something redeemable about her). I look forward to watching all of the characters grow over the next several installments of what I'm sure will be a hugely successful series.

    If you like cozy mysteries, you'll definitely enjoy Grace Interrupted . . . and if you haven't already, read the first book (Grace Under Fire) first.

    Happy reading!

    Very Enjoyable Read - Like Visiting With An Old Friend

    This is the second book in The Manor House Mystery series. It takes place in a large manor house in Emberstowne, one of those quaint touristy towns. The heroine, Grace Wheaton, is just beginning to find her bearings as the new curator of Marshfield Manor when the arrival of a large group of Civil War re-enactors throws a spanner in the works. The murder of one of their number implicates Grace's love interest Jack, and it's up to Grace (with the help of her annoying, but very competent assistant, Francis) to clear his name. I received an Advance Reader's Copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. Having read and thoroughly enjoyed Grace Under Pressure, I had been eagerly awaiting this second book. I was not disappointed. Grace Interrupted is every bit as well written and enjoyable as the first book. I find the characters, especially Grace to be very well developed. (Though, if you want to know about Grace's past, you really should read the first book). Grace is much like her name - she has a sense of elegance and "grace" that permeates the whole story. The way she handle's Francis is just amazing. You can feel her frustration, but she tries not to let it show. I do not like Francis, but she's one of those characters that you "love to hate." And who knows maybe she'll grow on me as the series grows. We don't see as much as some of the other supporting characters (Bennett or Grace's two roommates), but that's OK. We get to see a positive side of Francis and I'm sure we will learn more about the other characters as the series progresses. The pace of the story is just perfect for a cozy mystery. Never too slow or too fast. One of the things that I enjoyed about both books is that I feel that I can relax while reading, yet stay engaged. It's very much like visiting with an old friend. This is certainly one of my top favorite cozy mystery series. If you like cozy mysteries, with just a touch of old manor elegance, I highly recommend you give this one a try.

    Julie Hyzy provides an engaging complex amateur sleuth enhanced by a strong cast of suspects

    Part manor house and part museum, Marshfield Manor is a tourist attraction that brings in millions of dollars to the town. Grace Wheaton is in charge of the building and frequently is called to defuse fights between guests. One of the guests Zachery sets his eyes on David Embers and attacks him thinking he is his brother Jack who he believes killed his baby brother for stalking a Kincaide sister.

    When the brawl ends, each walks away hurt but breathing. Jack, who has tried to date Grace, tells her the entire story; she believes he is innocent. Her belief is shattered when Zachery is found murdered in a field near where Civil War re-enactors have set up camp. The police look at Jack as the prime suspect just like they did years ago when Zachery's brother was murdered. Considering what she knows about Jack, she decides he did not kill either Kincaide. As such she decides to investigate the two related homicides, but what she concludes is so horrific she cannot believe her assertion; even the police have trouble dealing with Grace's belief when she explains it to them. Tthe killer remains free to harm more people.

    The second Manor of Murder Mystery (see Grace Under Pressure) is a family drama as much as a murder mystery; as the two deaths link two bitter clans. Readers will agree with the heroine that selecting the culprit is difficult because both families consist of damaged people never fully moving passed thirteen years ago only to feel an eerie déjà vu. After a brief doubt, Grace knows in her soul that Jack is innocent of both horrible crimes, but proving it by fining the culprit seems just out of reach. Julie Hyzy provides an engaging complex amateur sleuth enhanced by a strong cast of suspects.

    Another hit for Julie Hyzy

    Another engaging cozy from a tried and true author. I, who was never interested in Civil War reenactments, found myself enjoying reading and learning about them. Love Grace, her roomates, and coworkers. Highly recommended series.

    Great atmosphere, likeable characters and a fast-moving plot

    I'm a great fan of Julie Hyzy's first series the White House Chef Mysteries. And her second series the Manor House Mysteries does not disappoint.

    In book one of this series, "Grace Under Pressure," readers are introduced to Grace Wheaton, newly hired curator of the palatial Marshfield Manor. In book two, Civil War re-enactors have set up camp on the Manor's grounds. The group takes its play-acting very seriously and the unrest spills over into reality when one of the actors-Zachary Kincade-is found stabbed to death.

    Jack Embers, the groundskeeper, who has kindled a few embers of his own in Grace, falls under suspicion when he's linked to the death of Zachary's brother many years ago. But when Grace-convinced of Jack's innocence-investigates the stabbing, she discovers that good old Zachary had many other enemies, including several of the re-enactors, one jilted bride and two of her best friends. Unfortunately, Jack's younger brother, Davey, who is clearly a troubled guy, also becomes a suspect. Could the secret Davey's been hiding also be linked to Zachary's murder?

    Great atmosphere, likeable characters, a fast-moving plot and an adorable kitten named Bootsie make "Grace Interrupted" an entertaining read.
