The fifth in a terrific series!
This is the fifth mystery in the Lois Meade series by Ann Purser. I came back to this series after a year long break. I read the first four one after the other and found myself getting frustrated with Lois and her crabbiness. She is crabby with everyone!
I think the break was what I needed as I enjoyed this book more than I thought I would. It is a typical cozy with all the cozy trappings: small English village, amateur sleuth/busybody, inept police who can't put two and two together and come up with three, lots of tea and baked goods. Everything that makes a cozy so familiar and, well, cozy. The mystery here is a little weak but the sense of community and place really makes this one work. If you've read the others in the series, you'll recognize everyone and characters are developing nicely. This is a fast read that screams cozy. A lovely diversion!
Great book in the Lois Meade series
Really enjoyed this book!
Lois Meade and her cleaning crew have set up a new office - just across the street from a peculiar business. They wind up investigating a murder, and it takes most of the crew to help gather evidence. Fifth in the series.
Enjoyable English cosy, updated with modern problemas and a liberated holiday.
Good "light" cozy that keeps you guessing about a murderer and a blackmailer.
Good little series. Excellent characters, but recommend beginning with the first book to really understand character development.
Another great mystery by Ann Purser! Lots of twists and potential killers,it was really good!
Good addition to her series. Lois sounds like a person who could easily be one of my neighbors.
