Overview

Mrs. Edith Rossiter, a rich matron, also has a wealth of greedy relatives--a cold-blooded daughter, a wastrel son, and a desperate sister. Because she is in excellent health, none of them can hope to inherit anytime soon ... So when Edith vanishes from Taviscombe's finest nursing home, the police suspect the worst, despite the lack of evidence. Mrs. Rossiter was a close friend of Mrs. Sheila Malory, who as usual applies her skills as an amateur detective to delve into the lives of the missing woman and her hopeful heirs. Was Edith addicted to sleeping pills? What did the mysterious couple seen in Edith's company want from her? The truth will be stranger and more startling than even Mrs. Malory could have possibly imagined. The Shortest Journey is the third of Hazel Holt's Mrs. Malory mysteries.

    A new found favorite

    I recently discovered the Hazel Holt books and am so glad I did. I am a great fan of the British cozy and this really hits the spot; no unseemly behavior except for the occasional murder or mishap. I love the village life, decriptions of the seasons, the gossips, respectful attention to the aged, the slower pace.
    It seems she looked in to my soul and wrote her books just for me. The Shortest Journey had a surprising twist at the end and I had to break out the tissues. Some may find them too slow, but I think they are just right.
