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.
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.
