Editorial Reviews

The Drood Review - D JS
Murray is able to nail down the atmosphere of the well-to-do, and Barnes' irreverent attitude about her situation makes for a great character - almost as if Spenser was a housewife.
Online review - Deen Kogan
A splendid series featuring a problem -solving sleuth with a Philadelphia Main Line twist. Definitely not your usual housewife detective.
Online review - Ellie Miller
"Thank heavens! A cozy with a brain!"
Main Line Today Magazine - Lou Harry
Murray knows the territory, and there's plenty of territory for her to cover. . .Ginger Barnes will be around for a long time.

Meet the Author

Donna Huston Murray’s cozy mystery FINAL ARRANGEMENTS (originally published by St. Martin’s Press) simultaneously achieved #1 on the Kindle-store list and #1 for Female Sleuths. The series opener, THE MAIN LINE IS MURDER achieved #2 for Female Sleuths. Claiming that, “This book should be picked up and savored!” a judge for the Writer’s Digest 21st Annual Self-Published Book Awards named Murray’s first suspense novel, CURED…BUT NOT OUT OF DANGER, as one of her top picks. Donna found all of this to be very encouraging.
The seven Ginger Barnes Main Line Mysteries and the first Lauren Beck Crime novel (above) were recently joined by DYING FOR A VACATION, a classic mystery the author describes as “an homage to Agatha Christie.”
Murray’s work can also be found in the Edgar-award winning companion book, THE FINE ART OF MURDER, and the LETHAL LADIES I and II anthologies by Berkley.

    An excellent beginning

    I read a lot of books, but rarely write reviews. This book was most definitely worth the time to read and to indicate my pleasure in the story. I enjoyed the character development but they weren't overblown, something that is difficult to find in mysteries of this type today. I am looking forward to continuing the series.
