Books from the Backlog - Monument to the Dead

Today I'm linking up with Carole from 
Carole's Random Life of Books for Books from the Backlog.  I really enjoy the chance to feature a book that's been hiding in the piles of books for far too long!

Goodreads:  Monument to the Dead by Sheila Connolly

Blurb:  When Nell reads the obituary of a former board member, Adeline Harrison, she makes a mental note to send flowers and doesn’t think twice about it—until FBI agent James Morrison shares his suspicions about the nature of Adeline’s death. It turns out that a number of other members of the local cultural community have died in the last few months, under similar circumstances. Soon Nell uncovers what seems to be a plot to rid Philadelphia of harmless, elderly philanthropists—but why? If she can figure out the killer’s motive, she has a chance of stopping the misanthropic murderer before another do-gooder is done in…

Why It Needs to Come Off the Shelf:  I'm listening to a book in another series by this author and Nell from this series was mentioned which reminded me of this book.  I read the first few ages ago but it's another series I put down ages ago and have been ignoring.  


  1. That sounds intriging, I like the setting too!

  2. So many good series but sounds like this one deserves a little shake from the shelf.

  3. This sounds really good! I am not sure if I have read this author in the past but the name is very familiar. I hope you enjoy it, Katherine!

  4. Sounds good! Another series I want to get involved in.

  5. This is one I want to read too. I hope you get a chance to soon!
