    engaging amateur sleuth

    Lois Meade owns New Brooms cleaners, a store that cleans people¿s homes in the villages of Tresham and Long Farnden, England. Her husband is a local electrician and they have raised three adult children. They also own rental property in Tresham, but are having problems with elderly tenant Clement Fitch in actuality with his noisy cockatiel Satan who wakes everyone up before daylight. In fact the bird has forced tenants to move out so the Meades have vacancies. --- Their oldest son Douglas rents one of the rooms from his parents. Soon after he moves in, someone kills Clem and Satan. The police led by Detective Chief Inspector Cowsill consider Douglas a prime suspect so Lois decides to investigate to prove her son did not kill her dead tenant. --- This is an engaging amateur sleuth starring a somewhat eccentric heroine (she is an unpaid police informant) and an interesting support cast to include Satan, the Meade family, and a new neighbor who is allegedly almost blind. Although the plot is thin, fans of English village cozies will enjoy Ann Purser¿s well written tale as Lois works her second case (see SORROW ON SUNDAY). --- Harriet Klausner

    great characters to revisit

    the lois mead series is full of real and funny characters.Ann purser has us laughing one minute and worried for the characters the next minute. lois is a friend we all have with her sense of practicality and quick wit. a caring mom and hard worker we can all relate to. her family can be everyones family. kids with their own sense of the world and a mother who still gives unwanted advice. her snooping staff and funny family is fun to follow from book to book. warning at one is a book you will want to read in one sitting because every page is interesting

    Warning at One

    The story plot is similar to all her other stories. Characters chanege once in awhile to get a slightly different feel to the story line.
