Product Description

From Booklist

Lois Meade, amateur sleuth and owner of New Brooms cleaning services, is back on the case. Well paced, cleverly plotted, and chock-full of cozy glimpses of life in a small English village, Purser's latest has Lois partnering again with local detective (and secret admirer) Hunter Cowgill. When Howard Jenkinson, the mayor of nearby Tresham, is found floating facedown in his backyard fishpond, his death appears to be a tragic accident. But things don't quite add up, and Detective Cowgill persuades Lois to do her usual discreet snooping. Despite the disapproval of her family, Lois uses her cadre of dedicated cleaners to help piece together bits of village gossip, odds and ends of past history, and snippets of information that eventually crack the case wide open. Even the usually unflappable Lois is shocked to learn that the civilized veneer of her peaceful village conceals a shocking tale of wife swapping, betrayal, and revenge. A fine series that just keeps getting better--a must for British cozy fans. Emily Melton

Format: Hardcover
Lois Meade is a heroine to be taken with pinches of salt. Her home-grown detecting skills and sharp tongue meld nicely with her managerial skills. Not a lady to be ignored, as Hunter would tell us. I always look forward to more Lois.

This is the fifth book in the Lois Meade Mystery series and is just as enjoyable reading as the first four. Lois' cleaning houses business, New Brooms, has grown so that she has opened up a second office in the neighboring small English village of Tresham. The reader will meet some new characters as well as old ones in this story. As always Lois can't help but get involved in a murder mystery when the Mayor is found dead in a pond behind his home. He wasn't well liked by most of the town so the list of suspects is quite long! The investigation reveals some nasty secrets about the town as well as some of the people. The reader will find this book a quick read but a good mystery and lovable characters. I am looking forward to the next book!

My husband and I are really enjoy reading the Lois Meade books together and trying to solve the mystery before it is revealed.
We would highly recommend the daily mysteries to anyone that is interested in a bit of sleuthing fun in a decidedly English village.
