Murder at Wedgefield Manor by Erica Ruth Neubauer

I reviewed the first book of the series : here

I have read and reviewed the previous book of the series. I liked the characters, and when I got a chance to visit with them again, I took it. The first case was in Egypt, where our leading lady Jane and her aunt met up with two girls as well as a few other people, one of whom plays a large role here. Jane is currently staying at the house of a Baron whose relationship with her aunt goes way back. During this time, she is picking up a hobby or two. Her relationship with her aunt continues to be tenuous at best, and when another dead body turns up, she is once again given free (grudging) reign to identify the culprit and unravel the events.
The plot of the murder and the resulting chaos was a little predictable. I could see where the story was going, and I was proved right. The romance and the budding relationships, as well as some of the quips, were quite entertaining. Overall a decent follow up to the first book, but I hoped for something more. The writing continues to be smooth and easy to follow.

I received an ARC thanks to NetGalley and the publishers, but the review is entirely based on my own reading experience.
