's review

This cosy murder mystery features the Women's Institute of Toot Hansell, a little (fictional) village somewhere in Yorkshire. When the local vicar is poisoned, suspicions falls on the various WI members, all of whom are known for their bakery skills (not necessarily a good thing). Unfortunately, although they're (probably) not murderers, they are conspiring to conceal dragons from the wider world. DI Adams, fresh from the Big Smoke, is assigned the investigation and gets more than she bargained for.

This was a quick lightweight read. Even for a cosy mystery, it was less complex than I was expecting. The dragons were fun, and I enjoyed the glimpses into dragonish life/backstory. For me, some of the action tipped rather into slapstick (eg, dragons colliding with each other when in a hurry or stressed - if it happens in one scene it might be amusing, three or four times feels heavy-handed).

In summary, entertaining fluff that doesn't take itself seriously.
