This book from the Ellie Quicke series touches on the care of the elderly and bullies. Ellie is desolate when she received a call that Aunt Drusilla is dead. She learns that her Aunt was found lying on the floor of bedrooms from an electric shock. The police are present and her selfish daughter, Diane believes she that has inherited the estate and become a person of interest for the murder. Rose had decided to move into Aunt Drusilla's home and disappeared. Ellie has her hands full trying to locate Rose and saved her daughter from a manslaughter charge. I highly recommend this book and series.

Widow Ellie Quicke would be the first to acknowledge that her aunt by marriage, Drusilla Quicke, was a difficult woman, tight-fisted and bullying. But she'd never thought that anyone would want to kill Aunt Drusilla! But someone tampers with the wiring, killing Aunt Drusilla's cleaner, that's what the police think. The police also suspect Ellie's family of trying to get rid of the tyrannical old woman. So it's up to Ellie to find out who really staged the "accident" -- and why. Author Veronica Heley plots a clever mystery, playing fair with her readers but still providing lots of surprises.

Ellie Quicke, who began this cozy mystery series as a doormat, has absolutely blossomed. Ellie stops making excuses for her greedy, selfish daughter Diana -- going so far as to give some excellent advice to Stewart, her long-suffering son-in-law! Brava! Ellie also stands up to the bullying Detective Sergeant Willis and even more menacing sorts -- something that would have been unheard of when Ellie's husband Frank died. She still loves Diana, but Ellie faces reality much more and berates herself less. I can't wait to see what's in store for Ellie in the next installment, Murder in the Garden.

Murder by Accident is the 4th book in the Ellie Quicke series. Ellie is recently widowed and lives in a London suburb. Ellie receives a call that a body was found at her Aunt Druscilla house. The death was by electrocution. When Ellie's daughter comes under suspicion, Ellie becomes involved.

I am enjoying this series. The characters well developed. The reader starts to know the neighbors and Ellie's acquaintances. Changes are happening to Ellie too as she starts to assert herself more. Several men are interested in her which is much to her surprise. Her husband always downplayed her looks and what she did. She has a very self centered daughter who always stirs up trouble. Ellie is always thinking of others and helps out anyone in need. She also was left quite well off when her husband passed away.

The plotting is always strong and all comes together at the end. I enjoy this series. It seems like a true cozy mystery to me. Just settle back and go along with Ellie on her daily chores and activities. I think that Hazel Holt fans might enjoy the Ellie Quicke mysteries.

The novel was very enjoyable, however, the kindle formatting was atrocious. I borrowed this through my library, which was delivered to my kindle by amazon. If I had purchased the kindle book, I would have been furious. So my advice is to not buy the kindle version. But read the book - it's terrific!

If you like a good cozy on a cold winter's night, a cup of cocoa, or something stronger, by your side, this would fit the bill nicely. Heley's characters -- the good, the bad, the ugly -- are all interesting, three-dimensional figures. Over the course of the series, it's interesting to see Ellie, the main character, develop a bit of a backbone, especially when dealing with her odious, self-centered daughter and her strong-willed, battle-axe of an aunt. The plot,, centered around someone trying to do her aunt in, is well-crafted, quick paced, and believable. Heley never hits a false note, and this book in the series is no exception. Ellie is quite religious, praying often -- normally a turn-off for me when a religious character seems to be preaching to the reader, but it's use is not heavy handed. It's central to the character, and not intrusive.

I've read earlier Veronica Heley books in the "Murder by...." series and find once again, in Murder by Accident, that she is a master of the intricate plot. You really need to move fast to keep abreast of the twists and turns, all of which are very neatly wrapped up by the end.

Ellie continues to be helpful in her community and overly helpful in her family with usually unhappy results. Her daughter invariably causes trouble, her aunt remains demanding and Ellie handles them all with grace. Real estate deals expand and shrink, the good guys don't always look so good and the ending contains some good surprises.

Ms. Heley is more than competent in her arrangement of clues and has polished her Ellie character to perfection.

A 110% cozy which will hold your attention all the way through.
