Rating: 4 out of 5.

This is a very good cozy mystery that is a quick and easy read.

She comes to the countryside ensconced in her designer clothes and expensive tastes, but soon finds herself befriended by free spirit Kath who serves as a sort of liaison between Astrid and the village. As her friendship with Kath grows, Astrid’s stiff exterior melts away and she is slowly accepted by the village. The minor characters from the village add a lot of charm to the book and provide a good sounding board for Astrid’s ideas. I love stories that are set in tiny villages because we are always treated with a variety of quirky characters, and the author does not disappoint here.
