Thea Osborne and her canine companion Hepzie travel to the isolated village of Snowshill for their next assignment, house-sitting Hyacinth House for the mysterious Yvonne Parker. Something doesn't feel right to Thea, who is ill at ease in the village, and soon her intuition is proved to be right. A local boy, Stevie Horsfall, is found brutally strangled, with his mother as prime suspect. Thea, believing in her innocence, embarks on a mystery, taking her through the maliciously entangled lives of the village residents, to London and beyond.

I enjoyed this book even though at times I wish the protagonist would be more self assured. Perhaps that was what makes her more appealing is that she is not the typical "I am the woman in charge".
If you want a good solid but not necessarily intellectual mystery read, this will fit the bill.
"Poor story not well narrated"
Tedious and badly drawn characters, trivial conversation, poor story, good setting. Hard to tell who is speaking at times.
Admittedly, didn't like it at first, but the mystery within the story, had engagement and interest. Worth a listen!
