This was a solid little cozy mystery! This is the fourth in Marty Wingate's Potting Shed series, and it's a mystery to me why I haven't read the previous three.
The clues were
provided, the characters were interesting and I loved them and I enjoyed
the historical background. I adore anything that is set in WWII era or past, as background. The story was entertaining and fun to read. There is a lot of British history in this book.
The storyline is fast-paced. It's never gory and
there isn't any potty mouth (for those of you who love mystery stories
but are faint-of-heart or squeamish). The characters are engaging: smart
and interesting and people you'd want to hang out with (except maybe
the bad guy!). There is even a very sassy duck. I heartily recommend
this to anyone who loves a cozy mystery, especially one set in the
lovely English countryside.
Despite it being the fourth, it's so well-written you can read it as a
stand-alone. But I won't deprive myself. I plan to read the first three
as soon as possible!
All in all, I give this book ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥(9 hearts of 10) and an "A" for effort grade.
