Barbara Michaels throws two more quandaries at us the moment one is temporarily cleared up. This is a good book. The title, like some of Michaels other books is from a wonderful poem, which doesn't represent a spoiler in anyway. It's a mystery, with a smart but falible female lead and several charming bachelors who may or maynot be the villian(s). Her references are intelligent without being pretentious and historically appropriate and honest without being maudlin.

It seems I can't get through a single Barbara Michaels book without being irritated by something- this time it was mostly some characters cast from the "stereotypically ignorant, backward, religious Southerner" mold (or maybe more the protagonist's tiresome stereotyping of so many fellow characters)- but perhaps a little irritation isn't such a bad thing in a.

Be Buried in the Rain. There are terrible secrets from generations past buried at Maidenwood. Medical student Julie Newcomb has returned to her family's decaying plantation-the site of so many painful childhood memories-to tend to her tyrannical grandmother, felled by a stroke. The fire of malevolence still burns in the cruel, despotic matriarch's eyes-yet, for Julie, a faint spark of redemption and second chances flickers in this hated, haunted place.

Books related to Be Buried in the Rain. I love all of Barbara Michaels books. They are not deep and thought-provoking works but they are very entertaining and well written and there's never a dull moment. by Jackie C. on August 31, 2018.

Still, better check it out. He'd had enough trouble with the police. That fuss last year, about whipping the kids at church school all according to the Scriptures, spare the rod and spoil the child but some busybody had raised rain, and he was an elder. Slowly Joe went around the front of the truck, dreading what he would see. But everything was all right. He hadn't touched it. The wheels were a good foot away. Must be dead or dead-drunk.

Dreading her return to the Virginia plantation where she spent four miserable childhood years, Julie Newcomb reluctantly cares for her family's ailing patriarch while delving into their dark secrets. Reprint. LJ.
I love Barbara Michaels books. This is an old one I read years ago, before e-books & Goodreads & Amazon book reviews. It was a perfect book for a chilly, rainy day. It is a well crafted story, as are all her books, and will keep you guessing until the end. Good characters, good story & a good read! 5 stars.

Who put the skeleton of the woman and baby in the middle of the road?

Who is prowling around in the old mansion in the middle of the night?

Who is covering up for whom?

Who is trying to kill Julia--or is it the skull she is reconstructing that is the target?

Is the hate-filled old lady as helpless as she seems?

Why did the attorney fall down the stairs? Why was he found dead the next morning?

Who is using Julia?

Why is someone using Julia?

What was in the envelope the attorney left for Julia to open after the old lady is dead?

Why did the psychic find the graveyard when nobody else could?

Was that where the skeletons came from?

Barbara Michaels throws two more quandaries at us the moment one is temporarily cleared up. This is a good book.
This is the kind of book you read on a Sunday evening in the tub. It's characters are light hearted, believable and generally endearing. The title, like some of Michaels other books is from a wonderful poem, which doesn't represent a spoiler in anyway. It's a mystery, with a smart but falible female lead and several charming bachelors who may or maynot be the villian(s). Her references are intelligent without being pretentious and historically appropriate and honest without being maudlin. I adore this author and recommend her to friends that love books. I read this book every summer and imagine that I am also on summer vacation in a gothic manor. Medical students, politicians and archaeologists also recieve shout outs in this book, you may find a little extra humor in it if you fall into any of these categories.
This is one of my exploratory reads. That is what I call it when I learn about an author and read their most acclaimed books to get a sense of them. The good thing about the story is that it is old fashioned. It relies on characters and atmosphere instead of shock value. But that is also its limitation. The era is so...shall we say perplexing. For example, a character notes that a woman being 10 (or was it fifteen?) years younger than her rival was 10 reasons more for a man to prefer her. The heroine is absurdly young. I felt it was kind of 1950's Gothic Americana and you need to be in the mood for something old fashioned in both concept and execute to enjoy this.
In theory this was a good book - the concept of a mysterious skeleton and an old family mansion should have made for a good little gothic mystery. For some reason I just had a lot of trouble getting invested in the story. I think my biggest problem was that I thought it was obvious from very early on who was causing all the trouble, so there wasn't really any suspense. I also never really connected to any of the characters. Martha was the only character that really felt developed to me, and she wasn't likable.
An enjoyable old-family-ties-that-bind-just-might-end-up-killing-you storyline that was fun to both read and listen to, but then as a kid, I also had a scary old grandmother afflicted by a stroke who lived in a cool scary old house so it was a bit nostalgic. The characters were brought to life by the talents of both author and narrator though at times the narrator seemed to be recalling a story very slowly.

I can't really peg this story as there was a touch of mystery, a touch of romance, a touch of humor, but I guess it mostly dealt with overcoming the past. The ending was a bit jumbled, but still overall a good listen. (The Audible photo suggests the story might be a bit gruesome, but it wasn't at all.)
One of my favorite murder/mysteries, have not ready anything by this author that I like nearly as much as this book, in fact, the others I tried were so bad they seemed written by someone else. This story has one of my favorite plots, favorite setting, and I really enjoyed the characters. Want more like it but have not found it thus far.
This is a reread for me. I have always enjoyed Barbara Michaels. She's one of the authors I've never tired of reading.
