5.0 out of 5 stars

A lovely, cosy, village saga/mystery.

Reviewed in Australia on 5 May 2018I love this series of novellas. Fiction, but based on everyday life experiences: growing up, growing old, death, family, relationships. This is the third book in the series, and I found it absorbing straightaway. I was asking many questions as I read-would this happen/would that happen etc. I thought of possible scenarios-would I be right or would the author completely surprise? She certainly did! It was fun sussing out things as I read, it really kept me guessing.

I really love Victoria Twead and her writing style.

I just wish she could put out a book every week. She can't of course, but I will definitely read them as fast as she can write them.
