Finale in her series of books
I recently reread this book, forgetting that it was the last one. I would really recommend reading at least several of her others, if not them all, before reading this particular book. Like watching the last episode of a series that you never followed. Probably not her best writing, but please remember, she was 93 years old when this was published! The series is over all interesting, has good mysteries, as well as fun, relaxing reading. I highly recommend, this is a very nice last book in the series of a very cozy mysteries!
