The story was so good. I didn't want to put it down.
She kept me guessing until the very end.
I would give away a surprise but the best scene is near the end.
If you can only read one of Ms. Wentworth's books, which is a very sad predicament indeed, but if only one, read this one. Her books are all on a high level of story, characters and flow. Someone who can write so many great mysteries of this type is amazing. Not since Christie herself I shouldn't wonder.
I have read most of Ms. Wentworth's books and can say with certainty this is one of her best. I would be hard pressed to say which one is the very best. This story is everything you want for a cozy mystery ... great characters, village life in England, the wicked Aunt, love intrigue and surprises as well. And Ms. Silver in her edgiest sleuthing. Don't miss this one.
