"I've always loved locked-room mysteries, and this is a terrific one. A cast of characters (each of them with something to hide) marooned on the top floor of a swank Las Vegas casino with a corpse. A fun and suspenseful mystery." —Rhys Bowen, New York Times, bestselling author of the Molly Murphy and Royal Spyness Mysteries.
Praise for The Corpse with the Emerald Thumb:
"The perfect read for those who like a classic mystery with twists and turns, enjoyable characters and no gory descriptions." —Brooke Blogs
Praise for The Corpse with the Golden Nose:
"If you’re a lover of classic mystery, this second Cait Morgan novel is for you. Ace takes her foodie / criminologist into B.C. wine country for a murder with touches of Christie or Marsh but with a bouquet of Kinsey Millhone." —The Globe and Mail
Praise for The Corpse with the Silver Tongue:
"[Cathy] Ace's smooth debut introduces Welsh-born Cait Morgan, a Vancouver, BC, criminology professor and police consultant, who finds more than she bargained for in Nice, France … Cait's enjoyable first outing should earn her a well-deserved encore." —Publishers Weekly

Unfortunately I kept being distracted by either clumsy wording, grammatically ambiguous phrases or referents, phrasing that screamed "plot point", and suchlike. (Example that doesn't spoil anything: a character in a power wheelchair would not, while zipping across a room, *remove her hand from the joystick* to wave, not when she has a perfectly good unoccupied hand.) It wasn't bad enough for me to quit reading, but I did have to make notations throughout the book in order to keep my editorial brain satisfied.
(Also, the formatting was distracting -- a combination of justified margins, no hyphenation to split words across lines, larger than average font, and a small screen because of reading this on my phone, all added up to a multitude of lines with big gaps between words. This is not the author's fault, and not everyone will be quite as affected by it as I was, but it did yank me out of the flow of reading.)
I also find myself wishing there had been more about Welsh culture and/or mythology -- especially mythology -- but that's my own craving. I *was* delighted to notice that the chapters were numbered in Welsh! ...I may be a little bit in love with all things Wales-related.
I do not regret reading this book, and if I had the opportunity to read other books in the series for free I probably would, but I doubt I would pay to read them.
I enjoyed the latest adventures with Cait and Bud who are set to marry and of course, what mars this exciting time is Murder. What I like best about this drama is that all the suspects are trapped inside this castle, which puts Cait and Bud on high alert to uncover the killer’s identity. The author did a great job in the telling of this tale placing me in the middle of all the action, as I wanted to know what role every character played in this intriguing and finely tuned whodunit. I liked that we got to know a little more about Cait and her relationship with her sister. The author blew me away with a surprising twist that I did not see coming and wow . . . talk about a chain reaction and its repercussions . . . a story that ended quite satisfactory for this reader.
