Death in D Minor (2017) Alexia Gordon (Gethsemane Brown Mysteries)

This book is set three months after the first, Murder in G Major. Gethsemane Brown has decided to stay in Carraigfaire to keep teaching music, but now the home where she has been staying may be sold to a hotel magnate–a man who turns historical buildings into cheap tourist traps.

“Thank you, Miss Brown,” Hank said.

“Doctor Brown,” she corrected.

“Oh, that’s right, you do have some sort of degree in, what is it, music?”

“A Ph.D. From Yale.”

“You must forgive me, Doctor Brown. I believe I mentioned before I don’t pay much attention to music. Too busy earning money.”

And the ghost that could help her–the former owner of the house–has gone missing.

On top of that, her brother-in-law is coming to visit, since he has business nearby.

“Jackson arrives the day after tomorrow. I haven’t cleaned, there’s no food in the house—”

“He’s family. He’s coming to see you, not the house.”

“He’s Southern family.” She swore again.

I like both of the guys she turns to in need–Frankie.

Gethsemane hissed at Frankie as soon as Andrew was out of earshot, “What are you doing?”

“I bet ‘affordable price point’ means less expensive than a bespoke suit.”

And Niall.

“Give me one comment and I’ll saunter on,” Finn said.

“All right.” O’Reilly held her phone near his lips. “For the record, may the cat eat you, and may the devil eat the cat.”

It’s a cute story and I do want to read the next book.
