HASH(0xa2058234) out of 5 stars Excellent British village mystery Jan. 10 2011
By L. Whittle - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I enjoyed this quite a lot, and the ending was surprising and well done. I actually felt empathy for the murderer. A nice change from the repellent Hannibal Lecter types that dominate mysteries these days! Mrs Malory is a middle-aged widow (and expert on Victorian novelists)in a small English village, and gets involved when an old friend asks her to check on his missing fiancee. She finds out quite a lot about the fiancee--who turns out to be a nasty piece of work--and about her old friend as well as other people she has known, or thought she knew, for a long time. If you like a mystery with an emphasis on character and motivation, with well-written atmosphere and background, you will enjoy this. The Kindle edition has some odd indents, and a couple of strange misspellings--"serum" for scrum and tea "towers" rather than tea towels, but it was readable and the price is very reasonable.

HASH(0xa2058480) out of 5 stars BEWARE REPRINT June 28 2011
By Carol W - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
BE AWARE that this is a reprint of the 1991 book: "Mrs. Mallory Investigates." I purchased this copy as well as the original in the same order, not knowing that this was a reprint.

HASH(0xa205893c) out of 5 stars Very Cozy English Village Mystery March 20 2012
By Lynn T. - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
"Gone Away" was truly a very gentle comfortable cozy mystery. However, the victim probably wouldn't agree. The U.S. title of this book is called "Mrs. Malory Investigates" Sheila Malory is a widow who lives in the village of Taviscombe, England. Her son Michael is away at Oxford. She receives a call from her childhood friend Charles who is living and working in the U.S.. His girlfriend Lee who he is going to marry seems to have disappeared. He asks Mrs. Malory to see if she can locate Lee. Mrs. Malory recently met Lee and did not care for her. The reader is taken on a journey with Mrs. Malory as she talks to her friends and residents of Taviscombe. She is the one who finds Lee who has been murdered. Mrs. Malory continues her investigation to find out who committed the crime.

As I read this book I thought "This is really a very cozy mystery." The readers see Mrs. Malory at home with her pets and making lunches and drinks. One sees her daily village life activities along with her investigation. She is a very likable person.

I knew who the murderer was but was surprised at the murderer's reason for killing Lee. The ending too was different than most mystery books. It was a fast cozy read and the style was different than many mystery books. Besides being a mystery writer, Hazel Holt is a very good story teller.

HASH(0xa20587d4) out of 5 stars Still good even though it is a "reprint" Sept. 30 2012
By andiesenji - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I should have looked at the reviews before purchasing this Kindle book.
As soon as I began reading it, I recognized that I had read it before now.
The original title Mrs. Mallory Investigates would have tipped me off that this was an old one but I looked at the "publication date" which in my opinion borders on fraudulent.

The story is a good one, the mystery is catchy and quirky. The characters are believable.

I notice that The Cruelest Month is also available as a "new publication" June 29, 2010, but was originally published in 1991 and I have that too.

In my opinion the date of release both new and original should be indicated. I'm a tad angry about spending my money on something I already have. I think it is cheating to not advise buyers that this is a reprint. I buy a LOT of Kindle books and I feel cheated.
