A Visit to Small Town Canada

Charlotte MacLeod is one of my favorite detective story writers. This one is from a series previously unknown to me (previous, that is, to publication on kindle) but it has the same charming, light touch, that marks the other works. Lacks, perhaps, the deeper element which tends to underlie the Bittersohn books, due to the earlier life of the now happily married Sarah, but still are entertaining. This one is set in snowbound Canada (birthplace of the author) where the Mrs. of the central couple runs into major, unexpected difficulties in seeking out an isolated location which a friend has told her has just the thing for the place in which she and Royal Mounted Police husband are enjoying the first months of marriage. Before her eyes, in a minor road through heavy snow and cold, a truck turns over. During the interlude between that event and her rescue, she learns that had she been found she would have been murdered. By sheer coincidence, the author's doing, of course, her husband is assigned a very hush-hush case involving people who also have a relationship to that area. Frankly, the mystery is hardly mysterious, the remaining action, not at all vigorous, yet the appeal of the people involved as characters and the stylishness of the author's prose, engaged me throughout. To be fair, these factors will legitimately deter readers who engage in trying to unravel puzzling crimes, like the action to be vigorous or like a touch of the sexual encounter. There is little of that kind of stimulus to the book. For one for whom the attraction of an appealing cast coupled with oddly idiosyncratic types, can be engaging, I do recommend this title.
lots of fun. The rural Canadian setting is very interesting

This is an older cozy mystery, lots of fun. The rural Canadian setting is very interesting. All of the books by Alisa Craig (Charlotte MacLeod) are enjoyable.
Relax with well plotted mystery

A cozy mystery fan, this was right up my alley. A bit more intense that some of her earlier work and I quite enjoyed it.
Another wonderful Charlotte MacLeod novel of wacky fun and chuckles galore
