A Kate Shackleton Mystery
by Frances Brody
The Body on the Train is the eleventh entry in the Kate Shackleton mystery series, I think. The books feature Kate who was widowed during WWI. She is bright, resourceful and looking for life to give her some meaning as the series begins. Of course, she is an old hand at solving mysteries by the time of this entry.
It is now 1929 as the story begins. A body is, as you know, found on a train. Who was murdered and why? Is the death related to the rhubarb shipment on the train? What will Kate discover as she seeks to solve this case?
With its recurring characters and good story lines the Kate Shackleton mysteries will be enjoyed by those who like the books by Anna Lee Huber and Jacqueline Winspear. The titles can be read out of order but once a reader tries one, they will most likely want to read others.
By the way, each title in this series has a gorgeous cover. The artwork always makes me want to pick up the book.
Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for this title. All opinions are my own. I would also like to thank Crooked Lane Books for publishing so many series that began with other publishers. It is wonderful to still be able to find the titles.
