    One thought on “No Body”

    1. I would give this book (3rd in the Jenny Cain series) 3.5 stars if I could. Goodness please let us use 1/2 stars!!!

    2. No Body by Nancy Pickard is a fun and funny mystery that I picked up as part of my Follow That Blurb Challenge journey. This is the third story in Pickard's Jenny Cain series, but I had no problem stepping into the book without having read the first two. The begins with Jenny's old sixth-grade teacher visiting the graves of her forbears only to be caught in a mud slide that reveals that her ancestors, along with 131 other "residents" of the New England cemetery are no longer resting in peace. In [...]

    3. This is from a massive stash of books I had that I have purchased over the years and haven't had a chance to read. I don't know why I waited so long to read this one!The plot is irresistable. One of Jenny Cain's former teachers slips in the mud and falls into an empty grave at an old town cemetery. Turns out that all the graves are empty. What happened to the bodies of everyone's ancestors? And why did an employee of the Harbor Lights Funeral Home become a murder victim, the body hidden in the c [...]

    4. The beginning grabbed me like no other. It might not be exact, but it goes something like this: “Some days are better than others to walk into a cemetery.” Is that gripping, or what? What happened to 139 bodies buried in the old town’s graveyard? I thought that was a hard one to pull, but Nancy –and of course, Cain –managed beautifully while reminiscing about the fifth grade school teacher, Ms. Lucille Grant, and about the town’s history and illustrious founder families in “Poor Fr [...]

    5. Interesting Jenny Cain mystery - starting with several empty graves in an historic graveyard. There are lots of characters that I am getting confused, though. Her cop boyfriend is conveniently out of town so far.(That just happened in a couple other books I just finished reading - it is rapidly becoming an overworked plot device to have the significant other go out of town for a month long work conference.)

    6. #3 in the Jenny Cain mystery series. Set in a small New England coastal town, Jenny decides to discover why graves in the town's historical graveyard have no bodies in them. As she starts to do this, she becomes involved trying to solve two recent murders that appear to be connected to the town's funeral home.A bit on the light side and follows the pattern of mysteries in which the mystery is solved by the non police person who is smarter than police.

    7. This was a really intriguing mystery . . . What happened to the bodies in the town's historical section of the graveyard?

    8. Here Jenny takes on the funeral industry. Despite the book's deathly overtones, it still has time to be funny.

    9. I don't know why but I just could not get into this book. I started it and just couldn't finish. So as it did not capture my attention long enough to read I gave it one star.

    10. A lot of people sure die in Port Frederick, MA! Jenny Cain plays cop and detective (while still tackling her tasks in her own full-time job) to figure out this murder mystery.

    11. Quite good. What does a Civil War graveyard, empty of the expected contents, have to do with current murder? Find out in this well-written book.
