Penelope Sotheby once again pulls you in to village intrigue. Murder by Mail keeps your interest with twists and turns. The characters pull you in until the mystery is solved. Another winner in this series. Linda G

Penelope Sotheby took me on wild ride with this installment! All the twists and turns and kept me on the edge of my chair and I just couldn’t put the book down. Thanks to the well placed red herrings it turned out to be a dead end when I thought I had it finally figured out and the ending came as a surprise. I am a big fan of the well drawn characters and the smooth flow of the mysteries. The book is a little bit more toward the edge of cozy and thriller but so much fun and probably my favourite in the series so far. Sabine Foster

I really enjoyed this book. My favorite things about it are the way the characters are developed, the location and the fact that there are clues to who the culprit is but not totally obvious. We’re given clues to figure it out. I am definitely going to read another one in the series. SC happy

Another great tale in the Diane Dimbleby series. As is her style the story comes with twists & turns suffused with a liberal sprinkling of red herrings that will keep you guessing to the end. The writing is descriptive & the characters have a reality that is often missing in cozy mysteries. Changling69
