This review is from: Deathly Portent, The (Lady Fan Mysteries) (Paperback)
More complex than the first book, which in my opinion improves it. When the axle breaks on their carriage, Tillie and Francis are dismayed to hear that the only blacksmith for many miles has been killed the night before. Tillie's sleuthing instinct is immediately alerted. Heading for the village on foot, Francis immediately realises that the death was no accident. He and the curious Tillie are drawn into a complex case where there are several possible suspects, and danger to Tillie herself.
Enjoyable mystery. However, I think that the author, because we see the case through Tillie's eyes/thoughts, does give us a few too many clues as to the villian.
