The Peter Shandy mysteries are very well done. They entertain with wit and do not insult ones intelligence. They are quite refreshing.

Quirky in a good way

Enjoyable mystery with additional twists to throw you off. Love the characters and how each add something to the story

One of my favorite Peter Shandy mysteries, this takes place in Maine and shows an understanding of northern Maine folks that I found delightful, including the description of Maine shore rocks being so friendly to one's buttocks. Ms. MacLeod has a way with words and quotes that is wonderful. The characters, both new and old, are fun and interesting.

Probably the slowest paced of the Shandy novels. It was still well written and the evil mastermind was a bit of a surprise. I did think the last couple of pages seemed a little rushed. Though explained well enough to be clear, it probably could have benefited from another couple of pages of set up for the arrest. My biggest complaint: No Thorkjeld Svenson, my favorite character.

The hardcover was well formatted with only a couple of noticeable spelling/grammar mistakes.

Good story overall, excellent intertwining of all the individual stories however the ending was a bit abrupt.

I can’t express how much I enjoy Charlotte MacLeod’s stories. She creates characters that invite you into their quiet life while they hunt for who did it. Her style makes me think of Georgette Heyer’s mysteries and Agatha Christie’s Miss Marple mysteries.
