English Trifle is the second of the Sadie Hoffmiller mysteries, but since I won a copy of it, I got to read it first. I found English Trifle completely absorbing! I devoured this book. (I know, I know, very punny.)
But seriously, I loved the twists and turns in the plot, very few of which I saw coming. And it's always fun to romp in the English countryside.
As always, Sadie's a bit on the preachy side, though I found her less so in this book than in Lemon Tart.
And the recipes look wonderful! I made the eponymous trifle for my husband (he lived in Scotland for a few years and had fond memories of that dish). He loved it!
