I must confess that when I agreed to review this book, I didn’t realize it was a short read (it can be read
in under an hour) nor that there were at least twenty others in the series. Needless to say I was enjoying the book so much that when it came to the end I was taken by surprise as I was just getting into it. This book then is slightly different from other
cosy mysteries but would be great for those who are short of time or just want a quick read. I loved the atmosphere and the characters so will definitely be back for more! It’s well written and well structured and has all you could want from a good mystery.
I look forward to meeting Jack and Sarah again soon.
