ADDRESSED TO KILL is a priority read. A genuine special delivery.

Waiting for this third installment in the Postmistress Mysteries felt slower than waiting for my mail! But the saying is true . . . Good things come to those who wait.

While I have loved my past visits to Ashcot, Massachusetts, author Jean Flowers has outdone herself, and once again written a cozy mystery I couldn’t tare myself away from, reading it in one sitting. Getting to spend time with series lead and postmistress, Cassie Mill

Over the weekend I finished Jean Flowers Addressed to Kill, the third book in her Postmistress Series. I have now read all three books and I think this is one of the coolest series in the cozy world. Maybe it is because I identify with the author's main character and her love of the mail. As far back as I can remember getting something in the mail was such a treat. My grandfather used to write and send stories to us and my mom would read them out to us until we were old enough to read them ourse ...more

Cassie Miller has the highly respected (lol) job of postmistress of a tiny post office in North Ashcot, Massachusetts. She sees everyone in the town on an almost daily basis since there's no home delivery, and because she's a groupie of a somewhat popular musical group by dating one of the band. Cassie is also remarkably nosy, in deep with the chief of police of North Ashcot, and not bothered about making enemies along the way. So goes the mystery of Addressed to Kill, the story of who killed lo ...more

Cassie is the new postmistress in her hometown and the town is getting ready for Valentine's day. She lets the musical group practice at the post office in off hours. One of the musicians is found dead shot at his home. He had brought in some threatening letters from students so Cassie gets involved. Interesting information about the post office and it's history add to the story.

As the third book in the Postmistress series, I really wanted to like it better than the first two. But there are so many things wrong with this book, beginning with buildings changing locations and growing larger. That's right - growing larger. In the last book, the drawings showed the post office, then buildings 1201 Main and 1203 Main on the corner facing the bank. In this book, it's 1203 Main, 1201 Main, and a much larger post office (now transposed to the corner and facing the bank) - attac ...more

My only real complaint is that I hate it when the amateur sleuth keeps evidence from the police--and here, they're even friends.

Cassie Miller is the postmistress in North Ashcot, Massachusetts, a small town in the Berkshires. Although much smaller than Boston where she used to work, North Ashcot is not without its own problems.

A local music group which will be performing at the local Valentine’s dance ends up practicing at the post office when their usual place is unavailable. But not long after practice, one of the local musicians is foun

I really liked the first in this series. This one doesn't have much to do with Cassie Miller's role of postmistress in her small town. Instead, it features two puzzles--the series of robberies that plague the small community, and also the death of a professor at the nearby community college, a man who played in the same group as Cassie's boyfriend. She doesn't have much to do with elucidating the first mystery--her friend the police chief does that on her own--but does figure out the second prob ...more

When the murder of one of the band members, Dennis Somerville, a local college professor, looks to be linked to some harassing mail i ...more

It's Valentine's Day approaching in North Ashcot. The band that Cassie's boyfriend Quinn is in is rehearsing for the upcoming Valentine's dance. There have also been a rash of burglaries around town. When one of the members of the band, a professor at the local college is found murdered, it is unclear if it was part of the burglaries or something else. Cassie believes it was not the burglaries and sets out to find the real killer. Another enjoyable book with interesting postal facts.

I hope this series never ends and post offices stop closing! This story had me hooked from the first page. Like Cassie, I had several characters vying for the killer! Nice plot twist with Morgan and the three thieves!! I think her friend Linda should find a valentine in Ashcot and move there!!!!!! I really like the map of Main Street and that Cassie's boyfriend, Quinn, plays the dobro - nice touch. The last chapter was a cliff-hanger and can't wait for the next story!!!

I was happy to have won a book that mixes mystery and the postal service. First book I have read that has the main character both as the postmistress and has her nose in a murder mystery, while her best friend is a detective. It was a fun book to read. Cassie is very adventures and is very well known in town since she is the only worker at the post office in the small town of North Aschcot, Massachusetts. She kept me on point thinking of all the possible suspects with motives.

Truly a first class cozy! I love protagonist Cassie Miller and the town of North Ashcot. A fun romp into Valentine's Day mystery and intrigue. Even if you have not read the other 3 great books in this series, you can jump right into this one. Another super read from author Jean Flowers.

The base of the mystery was interesting. I am not sure why most authors show their main character as interfering snoops. They withhold important information and assume they know best. Still I did enjoy reading about the history of the postal service.

Appealing concept, annoying heroine & slack mystery. Plus a ragbag of trivia at the end.
I will not be revisiting.

What a great series. Fantastic story line.
The post office history in this book was interesting, but I felt that this mystery was the weakest one in the series so far.

Having just finished this book, I have to plug my hometown! Ms. Flowers made it sound like Valentine, TX had the first Valentine re-mailing program and that all the other programs began to emulate it in the last 30 years. Sorry, but no. Loveland, CO's re-mailing program is entering its 72nd year in 2018! Over 200.000 cards from all over the world are processed here each year. Volunteers remove the outer envelope, check the inner envelope for postage and then hand stamp each and every one with Lo ...more
