What can I say. Certainly not the best mysteries ever written. However, I do like the characters. I enjoy the camaraderie of the teashop owner (Theodosia) and her employees. Theodosia is so nosy, so intrusive with her investigations, I really wonder why I don't find her more annoying. She does annoy me often, but I guess she is sympathetically written enough that I can forgive her faults.
As much as I probably should move on to more stimulating books, I would pick up another one again. Just a simple, enjoyable read.
