(as of Dec 04,2021 17:09:41 UTC – Details)
“a fascinating tale set in England in the 1930s. This ‘cosy crime’ novel, with its measure of burgeoning romance, is a good read; something to entertain and satisfy in front of a burning log fire in the dark days of winter. The settings and period detail are excellent…The denouement is swift, tense and satisfying…”
“I received this on a Friday and could not put it down – goodbye housework – not for too long though as I was so enthralled I finished it Saturday evening.”
“I was worried to read this as I didn’t think it would be as good as the Criss Cross series… but I needn’t have fussed as it was again simply brilliant.”
“Dottie Manderson is a gorgeous character…A great read and I’m looking forward to catching up with more of Dottie.”
