Grace Wheaton’s estranged (and troubled) sister Liza arrives on her doorstep asking for a place to stay. Liza is one of Grace’s least favorite people, but she figures it’s best to have her sister close to keep an eye on her. Also arriving at Grace’s doorstep are an FBI agent (who soon winds up dead) and a young woman wanting to rent a room.

Grace has finally agreed to take a DNA test to see if she’s related to Bennett Marshfield, owner of Marshfield Manor and Grace’s employer. They’ve grown very fond of each other over the years Grace has been at Marshfield and Bennett would like nothing more than to establish he’s Grace’s uncle and make her one of his heirs. It’s stressful for Grace, who doesn’t need a DNA test to prove her relationship to Bennett. Liza’s presence complicates that already stressful situation. In fact, everything about Liza’s visit is stressful. Of course, things get complicated with a missing treasure, a mysterious “Mr. X,” a hunky FBI agent, and Grace’s former fiancé Eric (who’s also Liza’s estranged husband) in the picture.

When I think of my favorite cozy mystery writers, Julie Hyzy’s name usually doesn’t come to the top of the list – and I don’t know why she doesn’t. She’s a terrific storyteller and has created two amazing cozy series – including the Manor House Mysteries (with Grace Wheaton) and the White House Chef Mysteries, both of which I read and really enjoy.

Grace Cries Uncle is a real page-turner that fans of cozy mysteries will love! ( )

Grace Cries Uncle is the sixth book in the A Manor House Mystery series.

I love visiting Marshfield Manor and once again Hyzy has provided the reader with an exciting story. I think that this book might just be the best in the series, so far. With this book, the series joins the pedestal that I have always had The White House Chef Mystery series on.

Grace has finally agreed to have DNA tests done to confirm whether she and Bennett Marshfield are in fact related. Just as she is ready to meet Bennett to have the tests done, her estranged sister, Liza, appears on her doorstep pleading for a place to stay. As much as she would like to say no, but it is her sister, so she agrees.

I don't want to say too much about the story, as I don't want to give too much away. Suffice it to say, everyone is connected somehow to the basic storyline. Once again, Hyzy does an excellent job of tying it all together for a great ending.

I hate to think that it will be a year till we visit with Grace again, but that will give me plenty of time to think of different scenarios for the next book.

Anxiously awaiting the next book in this wonderful series. ( )

If you ask people what series author Julie Hyzy writes, many will answer The White House Chef Mysteries, which are wonderful! But cozy readers would be remiss if they overlooked the Manor House Mysteries.

Ms. Hyzy has penned another wonderful installment in this series. She has really ampted up the mystery and intrigue (I wouldn’t have thought it possible), and has written a story that not only does her proud, but will thrill readers. You’ll be second guessing yourself when you think you know who the killer is. There certainly are plenty of twists and turns that lead you to the very exciting conclusion.

You’re going to love this sixth book in the Manor House series. It was well worth the wait! But, it will makes readers very impatient in their wait for book 7! ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0425259684, Mass Market Paperback)

The New York Times bestselling author of the Manor House Mysteries and the White House Chef Mysteries shows how a blast from the past can spell trouble for Grace Wheaton…

When Grace’s estranged sister Liza shows up on her doorstep, the timing couldn’t be worse. Grace’s beloved boss and benefactor, Bennett Marshfield, has finally gotten her to agree to a DNA test to establish if he is, in fact, her uncle. If so, Grace would move from being the trusted curator and manager of Marshfield Manor to Bennett’s heir. And her duplicitous sister would be right behind her in the line of inheritance.

Liza is not the only mysterious visitor to arrive in town. A man claiming to be an FBI agent has shown up, and a swarm of avaricious antique collectors have descended on Emberstowne for a prestigious convention. When Bennett reveals he’s in mind to acquire a secret antique and the FBI agent turns up dead, the plot thickens. And Grace can’t help but wonder if Liza is at the center of it all…
