Another cosy gem – “Dab reader”
Another cosy gem from Debbie Young. Sophie Sayers is becoming a regular sleuth in Wendlebury Barrow! I thought at the beginning that Sophie was becoming a bit of a doormat, thankfully this wasn’t the case and she finds herself growing in strength throughout this lovely book. This gentle series helps to pass the time on winter or summer days, and this is another one to snuggle down with.
The perfect feel-good antidote to winter blues – Susan Grossey
This latest dose of the Sophie Sayers stories slips down perfectly – although, as every writer knows, easy reading means hard writing, so many thanks to Debbie Young for her usual sterling work. As ever, life is not quite as idyllic in Wendlebury Barrow as it might appear, and this well-crafted story involves a large family, property developers (boo hiss!), medical mysteries and a pair of fetching bunny rabbit ears. I’m saying no more, except that I now know what a peck is. And Debbie skilfully drops in tempting hints about what Sophie might do next – I’m desperate to read about (and indeed go on) her Greek writing retreat.
Took me out of the rain and into the sunshine – Jo
I have read nearly all of the series of Sophie Sayers Mysteries books and as the next in the series this one didn’t disappoint. I feel I know all the characters like friends and so much enjoyed reading about Sophie’s latest sleuthing escapade. Gentle and funny with well observed characters. This lovely book kept me company during the long dark evenings bringing some light into shade and a smile to push back the cold.
Beautifully written – “Kindle Customer”
Such a gentle and beautifully written story – the perfect way to lose an afternoon. I have very much enjoyed the series and am looking forward to the next book.
Such fun! – Amie McCracken
I can’t find a word better for describing this book than fun. It had me giggling, biting my nails for the characters. I couldn’t put it down and want to live in this tiny village if only to people watch and be a fly on the wall. This entire series is such an adventure.
