Having recently been disappointed by the first Cherringham full-length novel I was pleased to now read another of the short stories. I still very much like Jack and Sarah, their relationship and the cozy setting but I do still find the writing a little odd. There are too many short jerky sentences that read like they’ve not yet been properly fleshed out. However, these stories definitely work better in short form. This is a quick and cozy, entertaining mystery.

Thank you to NetGalley and Bastei Entertainment for the ARC.
