It was ok, but way too many plotlines characters going on The map was nice but would have benefitedwith a character listing instead. 100% better than the last 2 books The flow was much smoother although the author is bit hard to follow if you don t take your time I was very happy to see this one take place back in the original village with all the original characters.I think one really must read this series in order to make sense of it all These aren t books for skimmers or those used to the easy read cozys that prevail. Perhaps this is just not a mystery one can read whilst reading 3 other books The vast character list was confusing, and I confess that I was quite lost by the end of the book too confused to care about the solution to the crime. Meh I got a bit lost about halfway through but kept reading hoping I get back on track I did but I could have just as well stopped at that halfway point Not very interesting or well crafted. A great start with Agatha suing the butcher due to his fake pig colliding with her car Also, when a secretary desk is opened, a body is hidden inside I still can t picture that A woman is killed in London, and yes Surprise The murders are connected The ending left me confused I guess only her hairdresser knows for sure.

herself The lines she drew were constantly changing and shifting as she went about laying them out like someone making an ordnance map Her line of demarcation was the Piddle River When Diane Demorney, and then Theo Wrenn Brown, had come to the village, she was actually less concerned with the contents of the removal vans than with deciding whether they were on the right or the wrong side of the river Melrose said to Jury,You can bet Agatha s going to be groaning with pain until this is settled Why do you think she s staying off that foot of hers Except for coming into the pub yesterday to check on your progress, she goes nowhere, and Long Piddleton is getting its first respite in some fifteen years Would anything keep her from making her daily rounds but the threat of losing her small

I can pick up the chops for Martha and see how poor Jurvis is keeping his sanity So it s between the pig, the bicycle, and the Austin That it Yes The pig and the bicycle managed to move themselves to the edge of the pavement and assault the Austin The kettle stood on the cooker where the constable had left it, and Jury went about heating the water Mugs were in the last cupboard he opened Burn had left out the sugar and tea When the water was ready he heated the pot, tossed it out, put in the tea.The room into which she led him was now an Arctic glare, where before it had been full of horsey stuff and paintings of driftwood and Cornwall like coastlines Yet it had been just as chilly looking then as it was now, since there are some people who can suck the warmth out of anything.Melrose sighed The man did not date meetings and events by the dull days of the week or Bank Holidays, but by first editions and endpapers Melrose nodded and nearly yawned The affectations of Theo Wrenn
