There has been a spate of jewel thefts in London and, worryingly, they have begun to happen much nearer home. Could some mysterious visitors to Harringtons, together with a maze of old smugglers' tunnels, have anything to do with the robberies?
The author's plotting is always good and the story twists and turns as the sleuths search for clues. There are some real surprises as the lively plot continues, as well as some fascinating glimpses into the past.
The writing style is very much 'English as she is spoke' - colloquial, simple, lively. This makes for good dialogue but sometimes awkward prose. There are several spelling mistakes, some of them quite basic, as though the author has difficulty with spelling and relies on her computer's spellcheck. Thus, for example, a recipe including currants spells the word 'currents' every time. There are also a few irritating grammatical mistakes. This is a shame, because Lynn Florkiewicz is a good writer with a lot to offer. She does not use a proofreader and perhaps it is time she employed one. However, this was not enough to spoil my enjoyment of the book, which I loved. I feel involved with the characters and want to know more about them, I enjoy the description of village life very much and I the mystery was very engaging. Every book ends with one or two of Nana Harrington's recipes [she is actually Lynn Florkiewicz's own grandmother]. Lots more Lord James books, please!
Instead it was a well constructed story and I did like the way his wife and her large family are roped in to provide the info about suspects.
All in all a good read, and I will be recommending it to my friends
I was transported back to the 1950s and thoroughly charmed by the storyline. I look forward to reading more by this author.
