Murder once again impinges on amateur detective Edna Davies of Rhode Island, willing or not. She struggles to juggle a number of baffling happenings: the discovery of a valuable brooch missing for decades, the appearance of a new neighbor with a major secret, a suspicious handyman, an abusive husband, the incidents cascade and culminate in a murder. Edna uses her native wit to unravel connections and solve several of the mysteries.
Young's writing is entertaining and fast-paced while avoiding the extreme violence and bloodshed found in some crime and mystery works. Her characters remind readers of people they might know. So when the resolution occurs, we breathe a sigh of relief and satisfaction, content that Edna has shown us the sterner stuff of which she is made, as well as the humanitarian connections she always exhibits.
Although I thought this the best of the novels, as you would expect on a third one, I still got a little fed up with the needless repetition and overly explained actions in places. So, I've read all three, given it a good go and enjoyed the stories, but I think for me I'll leave it there now, as they just don't hold me enough to want to carry on with future instalments. However, I would still recommend them to fans of the cozy murder mysteries, as everyone is different in what grabs them.
The story is entertaining, the mystery engaging and the characters likeable.
