This is my favorite book in the English cozy tradition. It is definitely cozy without being too sweet. I even like the introduction by editor Thomas Godfrey where he explains in a clever way about what a English country house murder entails and the rules of the house. I would never part with this book except that I was able to find it in a hardcover version; so decided to share this one. It really is excellent!!
