Celia Grant is an enjoyable character, in an interesting village. Cozy in the tradition of Agatha Christie, but with a stronger, more up to date protagonist.

A fluffier version of a Stephanie plum book. In these the main character is a hair lady with desires to do investigative journalism. She has the required rough - tough guy to help her out, and some truly crazy family members to keep things interesting

Don't go into this thinking the main character is a cat person. She hunts up missing cats, but does not like them. And a lot of cats die, so skip it if that's a problem for you. The main story is jumpy, and gets hard to keep track of at times. Overall, I simply did not enjoy this book on many levels.
