What begins as a holiday trip for amateur sleuth and cooking aficionado Sadie Hoffmiller and her daughter, Breanna, turns into a bizarre mystery. First comes the discovery of a dead body in the sitting room of an English manor belonging to the family of Breanna’s boyfriend, who is also heir to the family title.
When the body comes up missing, Sadie and Breanna are stranded at the estate until the police can clear them to leave. Armed with a jogging whistle, her personal recipe collection, and an unfailing sense of American justice, Sadie begins her own investigation to find the killer. But when she seems to encounter one dead end after another, Sadie wonders if anyone is telling the truth - or if the case is really as hopeless as it appears to be.

The character is kind of a nerdy, goody two shoes type. Sort of gets on your nerves a bit. Can someone be this naive at 56? It's ok, it's not what I'm used to with Dianne Mott Davidson.
Only if they start with the first book.
Kind of annoying.
I don't think that Sadie is feisty or sassy at all. She is kind of scared of her shadow and is always worried about what people will think. She needs to grow up and get tough. I don't like how they portray women in their 50's as technologically stupid and out of date with everything. It's not Dianne Mott Davidson and you can tell this was written for LDS people. Oh well, once I start a series I have to finish it.
