JUDGEMENT OF THE GRAVE - Sarah Stewart Taylor
Judgement of the Grave - Sarah Stewart Taylor is a very good mystery. It could be called a cozy only in that the main character, Sweeney St George, is a Harvard professor and finds herself investigating murders or at least helping. I love this series. Sweeney has the coolest career choice of all of the 'cozies' I've read. She teaches funerary art at Harvard, studying and teaching all that that entails. In this book she is researching tombstones from the pre-Revolutionary and Revolutionary period in Concord, Mass. And stumbles upon a murdered man. It's a good character study as much as it is a mystery story.
