I was drawn in by the charm of this book. It starts out rather quickly and the pace never lags until the gripping conclusion. Dorothy is an interesting main character. I felt her interest in the murder was a little under explained, but I was willing to let that go. I really enjoyed the writing style. The first person narration felt like a letter to a friend and the scenes where Dorothy argued with her self were funny because they were so true.
Having already discovered this author's other series, I now look forward to reading more in this one as well. She is a truly talented mystery author.
Dorothy Martin is an American widow living in the fictional English town of Sherebury. Dorothy is over 60, overweight, and given to wearing wonderful hats wherever she goes! She has a great sense of humor and a genuine feeling for others. She has made friends with many of the local people and her interactions with them are charming.
Dorothy lives next door to a famed cathedral; at Christmas Eve services she discovers a body and the game is afoot! Her curiosity is piqued and she decides to solve the crime. In her sleuthing efforts, she wanders about the town talking to people in high and low places. Dorothy makes fast friends with the head of the local police, Alan Nesbitt, and it becomes obvious to readers that a romance is in the making.
There are wonderful descriptions of the town and its inhabitants abound and Ms. Dams nicely explains the differences between American and English viewpoints.
Buy this and enjoy! (I've already purchased and read her next three books and they were all wonderful!)
