    This is a great series by Janie Bolitho. The main character, Rose is an artist and frequently drawn into finding clues that help solve murders. The setting is wonderful and a strong female main character make these reads very enjoyable.

    My lovely daughter gave this to me at Christmas because it's set in Cornwall, where I live, and the heroine shares my nom de plume. But it was a delightful, easy read while I was feeling very unwell, and I'm grateful to it! May look for some more in the series.

    Very pleasant read with interesting characters set in Cornwall. Slow paced but with enough to keep you reading until the end.

Rose is drawn into a family with secrets, who also have links to a talented student of hers who asks for her help in persuading his father to support his application for an Art degree at University. Coupled with her on/off relationship with Jack, it's a good book to read, a little formulaic but quick and easy to read in an evening.

    An enjoyable read set in beautiful Cornwall with easily recognisable places in the story. I havnt read any other books by this author so not sure if others are faster paced and more dramatic but personally I like faster paced and more gruesome and dramatic mysteries. Great read prob closer to 3.5 than 3 stars but not my favourite mystery style personal taste more than the books attributes.

    I liked this book. The central character was likeable if occasionally annoying. It was written in a simple style. I particularly enjoyed the descriptions of her surroundings in Cornwall as some of these were quite familiar to me. I might read some of the other books in the series.

    Another enjoyable instalment in this Cornish based Series .. A good balance of personal life and possible crime .. lots of good threads to follow and discard as the story deepens .. even when you've guessed the what, you have to wait until the end for the why to be revealed .. More to follow

    I enjoyed the descriptions of the Cornwall scenery which gave this story an interesting aspect not usually found in a mystery.

    Not a very satisfying mystery, but the setting and the now familiar characters keep it moving.

    Good story and characters, great location. A lot of the time is spent with Rose and her life which is quite relaxing mostly but can get a bit boring.

    Enjoyed it but the conclusion seemed to come and go very quickly. Love reading stories where I know the locations and can picture them!

    In "Plotted in Cornwall," by Janie Bolitho, Cornish resident and artist Rose Trevelyan is commissioned by two elderly sisters living on Bodmin Moor to paint their portrait, and then, when the grown daughter of one of the sisters mysteriously returns home after having been missing for a year, the commission request is withdrawn.

This naturally arouses Rose’s always-heightened curiosity, but as she begins to learn more about this odd family, it’s possible that she’s uncovering more than anybody wanted her to know…. I’ve been reading the Rose Trevelyan series out of order, as I happen to find them, which makes some difference in my understanding of the characters and situations. For example, Rose has an on-again, off-again relationship with a policeman (of course) and something seems to have changed things in a previous book in the series with respect to that relationship; but, of course, I don’t (yet) know what that is. Still, I enjoy the characters and especially the setting, being half-Cornish myself and having lived there as a child. There are only seven books in the series as Ms. Bolitho died in 2002; I’m hoping to find the three I haven’t seen yet and be able to complete the whole series. Recommended, especially as a nicely-drawn cozy.

I found that there were just far too many coincidences going on, with Rose working for the sisters, but also teaching the nephew and being drawn into a mystery surrounding the missing husband of one of the sisters. I know Cornwall might be small, but not that small. I also found Rose a bit hard to like. There's curious and there's nosy and Rose doesn't seem to know the difference.

She's also really hard on Jack, a detective who's obviously interested in Rose. The positive is that the novel is very atmospheric because she does a very good job at describing the areas around Cornwall.

    Plotted in Cornwall takes Rose to Bodmin Moor to paint a portrait of two strange sisters in a remote cottage. I leave the rest for you to discover. This really is an enjoyable series of books - the descriptions of Cornwall and the fishing village of Newlyn make me want to visit as often as I can.

    An easy holiday read, I like these books by Janie Bolitho mainly because of the setting and because her 'detective' is a likeable character. Her plots are fairly easy to work out!

    Easy to read, it did not present any challenges. A simple story, ordinary characters. A bit hard to work out if it was a mystery or a romance. Neither seemed overly well done,

    Easy read, first one I've read, maybe would feel more 'at home' with characters if I'd read them in order, will look out for another one, to see. Liked the Cornwall details.
