'The kick-off to Goodhind's new mystery series - fast moving with a likeable heroine and an impeccably rendered Bath background...' --Kirkus Reviews
'Sometimes it is the location alone makes you curious about a detective novel....Jean G Goodhind in her debut novel has added much more than that - a droll plot and a lot of British humour...' --Brigitte Magazine

'll as though I know it well. I am really looking forward to reading more. I have several friends who love reading and have recommended the book and character to them.
I like the fact that Honey was not some young, athletic girl but a woman of more mature years, although I was brought up short to realise that even so, she was still on the right side of 40! She is after all the widowed mother of a remarkably well balanced and mature 18 year old daughter. She is also however, the frequently frustrated daughter of a less well adjusted, would be controlling, mother, whose raison d'etre seems to be matchmaking for her daughter, who would much prefer that she didn't.
I also liked the fact that Honey doesn't just drop everything to investigate a case which would have been best left to the police, she still has her busy life to fit in alongside her sleuthing. She is a hands on proprietor, and has to be involved in the everyday chores, she also spends a lot of time evading both her mother and the stream of men she brings to the hotel to meet Honey, (on one occasion Honey is very impressed with one of the men her mother introduces her to, and begins to wonder if she has finally come up with someone worth a second look. She really should have known better.)
The detective assigned as her police contact is not thrilled to have to share information with her which leads to plenty of reciprocal non-sharing. There is also a certain amount of attraction between them which neither of them will acknowledge, although Honey finds herself torn between two men because of it.Read more ›
Totally unbelievable and with weak characters. I certainly won't be reading anything else by this author -though the lovers of 'cozy mysteries' might like it.
With an attractive heroine in a beautiful city, what more do we need? Perhaps a detective who combines arrogance and misogyny with an unhealthy amount of sex appeal. There's a lovely set up here that I suspect will run through several more volumes. And did I mention that Ms Goodhind has a smooth writing style with lovely touches of humour?Read more ›

What a good well written story. Couldn't put it down. Just enough of everything mixed in the plot - murder, mystery, mayhem, jogging merrily along with Honeys own private life. Read morePublished 22 months ago by Albert RN
