A wonderful cozy mystery. Not very long by today's standards, but well written and well paced. The quirky characters felt very comfortable and relatable, which made keeping track of individuals within the story much easier. It seemed a little odd that Balaclava was considered so forward thinking in that they had the students run the faculty cafeteria to give them real world job experience. This seemed the norm when I started college in '90. There were a few things that struck me while reading it. 1) Expectations in culture have changed somewhat. Frugality was in, now it's extravagance and over-indulgence. Having one car was understandable necessity; having two was ostentatious. Sugar was a luxury. Packing a single small suitcase for a week long trip. 2) I'd forgotten how varied the vocabulary was. Perspicacious and alacrity are rarely used in today's novels. 3) Everyone drinks and pretty much all the time. Seems they are always having a sherry, or a highball or something. Someone would walk into a room and they'd be offered an adult beverage. The Open Road eBook was well formatted, though there were a handful of misspellings.

Makes you think and learn while reading. Not just fluffy nonsense.

I'm delighted that Charlotte MacLeod's books are now back in print, and available on my Nook! Her books are fun to read, with interesting, quirky characters, and they are well written. Think Jessica Fletcher meets Northern Exposure. My deepest regret is that she is gone now, and so we won't have any additional Peter Shandy or Sarah Kelling stories beyond the current supply.

Tries to not decorate for the holidays and gives up and goes all out to find a corpse in his front room trying to turn off blinking santas saved by a chic lady librarian they find the murderer who has been raiding the lst editions from the uncataloged old collection of dusty tomes.

As characters develop and minor become major players. Seems to like cats better than dogs though in one a pig gets top rating when pignapped. " Something the cat dragged in" and "the luck ran out" are three and two i think

I truly enjoy Charlotte MacLeod’s books. Her characters are likable and the stories have a quite charm that is captivating. I can’t wait to read the next book in the Peter Shandy and Helen Shandy mysteries.
