It's 1905, and to recover from the loss of her fiance, Potter moves into a small farmhouse in Sawrey. Populated by colorful characters, both humans and critters, her new life is full of promise. That is, until a villager dies and murder is suspected. Now it's up to this amateur sleuth to find a killer roaming the English countryside.

cozy mysteries are a few of my favorite things.
The author crafts a delightful tale. A real gem. The visual language creates such a vivid picture I could smell the lands and see into the characters eyes
Beatrix is breaking from overbearing. Parents, doing what she loves.
Oh my a third dimension of charm
Yes found the clock rang 3 am and had to force myself to sleep
I really enjoy this series of books! They are entertaining for adults and children especially if you are an animal lover! My mother has trouble reading but can listen to these books and it helps to fill her days.
This is such a delightful tale. All the characters are believable and the story is very well written. Suitable for adults and children with intellect and imagination. The naration is very well done.
I started out reading mysteries in 3rd grade. I grew to love SF & Fantasy as well. I'm can't take a road trip without an Audible book along
I enjoyed reading Beatrix Potter's stories to my son when he was young. This is a grown up version along the lines of a traditional English cozy mystery. I loved the way the author brought Beatrix and her animal friends to life. Incorporating the life of Ms. Potter kept me wanting to listen longer. I really didn't want the story to end.
I'm so glad to know there are more books in the series and as soon as I am through writing this review I will be ordering book 2.
I found this book to be a very pleasant surprise. I have read other books by this author and this series came up when I did a search for her other writings. if you're looking for a book with gentle charm and wit, this book is a great choice.
I am an avid reader and listener. I especially love imaginative fiction when I am "brain frazzled" from heavier stuff.
I was delighted with this story! The narrator made the story lively. The story had a delightful mix of fantasy and mystery that just hit the spot. I have not been able to stop listening.

Especially good if you like a little history with your mystery! I knew nothing of Potter beyond her stories. What a life!
