Really enjoyed this story. I loved the characters and the storyline. It really goes to show how evil people can be. Very well written. Will be getting more books from this author. daryl

This is the first but won’t be the last book I’ll read by Penelope!! Diane is such a wonderful character. A Miss Marple and Jessica Fletcher rolled into one. Diane is observant detail oriented and just all round wonderful detective. This is a must read. I’ve already downloaded others. jackie

Well written, easy reading for cozy mystery lovers. Love the relationship between Diane Dimbleby and the local Shrewsbury detective, Darrell Crothers. They make a good team. Dog Lady

The two main characters, Diane and Darrell, are well developed and work well off of each other. This story had me thinking throughout as to who did it, and had enough twists and turns so that I didn’t figure it out right away. catwoman1a

A delightful story set in a charming English Village, with our heroine Diane, who I so enjoy. The plot captivates you with so many interesting twists & turns. You are totally glued to finishing the book. Dimples
