The Barnes & Noble Review
There is nothing like a cozy, and Ann Purser does a wonderful job of bringing rural England to life in her Lois Meade mysteries -- stories that bring out the charm (and annoyances) of village life in a captivatingly timeless way.

As owner of New Brooms ("We sweep cleaner"), Lois Meade is privy to many a secret in Long Farnden, where she and her team of cleaners are in and out of people's houses and lives on a weekly basis. But the remote farmhouse of Cathanger Mill and its inhabitants are unknown to her, until Enid Abraham applies for a job with New Broom.

There's something strange about Enid. She mentions her reclusive mother and frail father but omits any mention of her elusive brother Edward, whom Lois soon learns is in some financial trouble and running from the police. Driving home one night, Lois thinks she sees a body by Cathanger Mill, yet the police can find nothing. Then a sullen au pair hysterically announces she saw a man kill the family pet; yet the carcass can't be found. And when Enid disappears, Lois can't believe that the woman simply walked away from her new job and her needy parents. Somewhere, lost among the bits and pieces of her life that Enid scattered so sparingly, must be some clues to what really happened. And Lois is determined to sweep away the cobwebs and apply enough elbow grease to set the truth shining clear. Sue Stone

I enjoyed the characters in this book, for the most part. However, it's not the page turner that the first book in the series was. I will continue reading the series when I need a book that's not challenging and is just for fun.

If you like cozy mysteries, you will enjoy Ann Purser's Weeping on Wednesday. This is part of her Lois Meade Myster series featuring housecleaner, Lois Meade, who stumbles upon another village murder. She's always willing to help the police solve the crime. Purser's description of English village life makes this series just right to curl up with a cup of tea and carry yourself to the English countryside.
