This review is from: A Death in the Family (Sheila Malory) (Paperback)
I've not long discovered Hazel Holt so am reading quite a few of them and although they are aren't the best of reads they are a gentle read - the central character is a bit like a cross between Agatha Raisin and Miss Marple - no violence just a lot of casual questions and information that Sheila Mallory then passes on to the local bobby who she has known since he was a boy. This particular book has many more possible suspects than the others but an 80 year old friend of mine that I lent it to got confused because there were too many characters in it and all the inter-relationships got a bit much - still - if you want a gentle read that won't give you nightmares when you turn the light out you could do worse.
