I love this series. I think this is the 1st book featuring the two gals who have retired and live in cottages next door to each other in a seaside town called Wethering. One is a free spirit - sort of a 60's hippie and the other is a rigid sort of organized retired business woman. They come together to solve a murder. The detective work is fun and interesting and so is their developing friendship. I've read 3, I think and am eagerly awaiting a new one.
