Shelves: cozy, mystery
I am not familiar with the author or the series (if it is one) but I picked up this book at a library sale because the cover art looked promising. I not only enjoyed the story but also casting people from my village in the roles for the imaginary movie.

The only thing that distracted me for a moment was that one of the decrepit amateur detectives was my age. Ouch!
