I enjoyed this book, which I received as a Goodreads Giveaway. The layout of the book is very clear, which made it easy to read.
The opening story takes you straight into Jane's world as she solves her first case. We then learn more of her life through her memories as she sets up as a private investigator in the style of Mma Ramotswe meets Miss Marple. The title story runs through as a darker thread which ties in to one of the earlier cases with a shock, and maybe promises more heavy subject matt

I received it as part of the GoodReads Giveaway. Im always interested in reading new authors, as it brings on the variety to my reading.

Really good read! was a bit hard to get into i thought but once it got going and she started to investigate properly it was a very enjoyable read! maybe next time there'll be a few bigger cases and the snippet of the next book at the end definitely makes me want to read on :)

For a lover of mystery literature, the idea of a British housewife taking up crime solving appealed. Our lady detective charms and the network of plots are constructed with obvious great care. A pleasure to read and the opening chapter of the follow-up is a great idea.
