Some series go down hill. This one crashed. These aren't mysteries, they're soap operas. I like running character sub-plot as much as the next mystery-reader, but this is so maudlin that it detracts from the mystery. This is where Hardwick lost me; the series kept going, but I didn't.

I read this series many years ago but I had forgotten most of the plot and I enjoyed it again. True british cozy mystery.
