    1. Jerri Cachero

      I really enjoyed the book and loved the main character, Kay Driscoll. Kay is a very relatable woman who is married, has grown children and lives a comfortable life. She meets two charming older ladies at a retirement home and Kay is drawn into a mysterious death.The mystery kept me guessing and while solving a mystery, there were still cozy elements and great character development of Kay and her family and friends. I also enjoyed a cozy mystery, like this, from the viewpoint of an older female c [...]

      This was another fun re-read for me. Kay goes to a Christmas tea and while there one of the handymen dies. After promising she's not going to investigate after being approached by a few of the residents Kay goes into full snoop mode while dealing with Christmas, Elizabeth's love life and Deidre's work on her new store. This is her second book and again Susan Bernhardt has brought her book to life with incorporating family anyone can relate to especially the cook who takes over the meal but can't [...]

      Suspenseful holiday cozyThis is the second book in the series written by the talented Susan Bernhardt. When I chose this book for a Facebook group discussion, I had no idea how enamored I would become with all the lovable characters in this story. As I curled up with this book on a dreary Sunday morning, I found myself tagging along with Kay, Deidre and Elizabeth as they embarked on another adventure in the quaint town of Sudbury Falls.It's Christmas time and Kay is looking forward to having her [...]

      When I read The Ginseng Conspiracy, which was the first of the Kay Driscoll Mysteries, I was new to cozy mysteries. I'd always read and loved the more complex mysteries of James Patterson, Sandra Brown, and their ilk. But I loved this book, and could hardly wait until the second one came out.Murder Under The Tree did not disappoint. If anything, it was more intriguing than the first of the series.I just knew I had the killer pegged from the starten I decided it was another characteren it HAD to [...]

      Susan Bernhardt’s latest cozy mystery, Murder Under the Tree, tells the story of a suspicious death at a retirement community and the efforts of Kay Driscoll and company to determine whether foul play was involved.I have to say I didn’t realize I even liked cozy mysteries until I read Bernhardt’s first book in this series, The Ginseng Conspiracy. Now, I can’t get enough of Kay Driscoll and her friends. As soon as I started this book I felt I was once again among friends. Bernhardt has a [...]

    6. Lisa Ks Book Review

      MURDER UNDER THE TREE is a great second story in the Kay Driscoll Mystery series.I saw much growth in the writing from the first book (which I loved). Author Susan Bernhardt has really developed the characters and has a great way with descriptions. My favorite parts were in Sweet Marissa’s Patisserie. Oh my goodness, I could smell all the goodies as I was reading. As with THE GINSENG CONSPIRACY, Book 1 in the series, the mystery starts just a few pages into the book. The story takes off quickl [...]

      Amateur sleuth Kay Driscoll is back! Having read the first cozy mystery in this series, I was excited to get my hands on this new release. Susan Bernhardt brought back not only main character Kay, but also her cast of enjoyable supporting characters - Kay's family, friends, and neighbors in Sudbury Falls.Danger and intrigue once again follow Kay around town as she attempts to unravel the truth behind an "accidental" death at a nursing home. Just like the first book, this one has a great blend of [...]

      Murder Under the Tree is a well-crafted, suspenseful cozy, with an interesting cast of characters, and a plot that twists and turns. A real page-turner, perfect for the upcoming holiday season.

    9. Robbi Perna

      Susan Bernhardt's second cozy mystery set in the same small town as her previous book, The Ginseng Conspiracy, a month later is another skillful take that uses a common food allergy as the premise for the mysterious death that Kay Driscoll and her band of golden ladies set out to solve. Kay's husband is still involved with his guitars and band, activities that leave little time for him to do more than carp at Kay. The reader still wants to choke the living lights out of him. The story sparkles w [...]

    10. Doug Burris

      Another great cozy mystery. Excellent!After reading Kay Driscoll Book 1, I couldn't wait to find out what Kay and her 2 friends had gotten themselves into this time. At first I wondered how the the nature of the initial murder could be used as a building block to a good mystery, but I was totally wrong. The plot builds, becomes more complex, new characters are introduced, all contributing to an excellent mystery book. I love the characters and the setting. The plot moves along at just the right [...]

    12. Marsha West

      Susan Bernhardt’s MURDER UNDER THE TREE is the second in the Kay Driscoll Mysteries. It is just as delightful as the first in the series. The small town setting with everything Christmas is perfect. Her characters are lovable but far from perfect. We can all identify. You won’t want to miss reading about Kay and her friends. Her relationship with her husband is especially endearing. When you finish, besides being eager for the third book, you’ll be thinking of moving to this small Wisconsi [...]
