I enjoyed this English mystery. The characters felt very real for the most part. I think Kali needs a bit of obedience training, but she seems a lovely dog, Penny seems a bit scattered, but she's trying. I started this series with this book, which is #3. I plan to go back and read books 1 and 2! It was also a pleasure to read a book that didn't have me wincing at bad grammar or poor word choice or misspellings, even if I felt like scolding Penny for how she was expressing, or rather not expressing, herself. I think this was a good mystery and I liked the characters in the town. I wondered who did along with Penny and suspected at least as many people as she did at various times. I look forward to reading more of Issy's work.

Nice British cozy! Complete with village characters we get to know, and a big goofy dog. Clean, well written, entertaining mystery.

A 145 page free murder mystery set in the English countryside of Lincolnshire. What's a woman approaching over 40 to do when she is approaching a breakdown and panic attacks from the stress of her London career? Move to a remote village, rescue an unruly Rottweiller from the shelter, and find a dead body...... Some different dialect terms of speaking. Some obsessing on her part about how she wishes things to be and not how they actually are. And she is actually one of those women you see in the movie that goes into a dark alley at night when the murderer might be there - without anyone knowing where she is and no backup - she is invincible after all. Yeah. But there IS the strong village blacksmith that knocks on her door.......that she won't listen to, after all, he's only lived there his entire life.

This was a great cozy read. The setting and characters are really brought to life by the charming details, especially the added bonus of the characters' language and mannerisms. Each unique personality makes this small town all the more charming and attractive to discover what next they will do.

An easily enjoyed British cozy mystery involving a retired film producer, her newly adopted Rottweiler, and a small English village. On a walk with her poorly trained dog she discovers a murdered man and the story goes from there. She meets a fellow villager who helps her with her dog's behavior and at the same time provides a hint of a new friendship. All in all an enjoyable read.

Penny is new in a small town, retired there from working in London. The story grabbed me right away with Penny's predicament with her newly-adopted dog. It reminded me of my own dogs over the years. I too have been dragged down the road. The murder mystery was good too. It held my attention with interesting characters, the small town vibe, and a heroine who "treds on thin ice" with the town folk while trying to solve a murder.
