If you enjoy gardens....

There seemed to be no real story in this short listen, just a commentary on a woman's life in a small town. I had to wait until the last few minutes of this short listen to hear anything interesting.
I certainly would not have used "Mystery" in the title, we were not privy to any crime, there was no investigative process, just a brief summary of a situation, like a newspaper report of the basic facts.
Shame really, as it could have been a good story.
Narrator
Not the style of narration I enjoy the most, I thought the delivery method would be better suited to reading to children, slow and clear. A little more life was infused in to the role of Ros, the friend
