really liked it

This is the first time I've read anything from this author, and it won't be the last! Have had a blast being entertained by Guinevere, Dolly and crew and cannot wait for more!

Guinevere is part of a theatre group and they've become her family. She gets the opportunity to head to Cornwall for the Summer to work at a castle and help catalogue the book collection there - sounds like my idea of heaven!! So off she sets with her faithful companion, Dolly the Dachsund, for a new adventure!

Soon her adventure turns to tragedy though as there's a murder at the re-enactment that she and some of the fellow villagers are taking part at. And the victim has annoyed an awful number of people so the clock is ticking to track down the murderer and Guinevere is up for the challenge! When she starts delving into the locals she finds out there's a lot of bad blood and tensions dating way back and it is fun to see her working out who to trust and what to believe.

I've not read many cosy mysteries before as it is a genre that has never appealed much, but after this one i'll definitely be looking out for more as it was such a fun, enjoyable read.
