I always enjoy the Dorothy Martin mysteries. Are they great like our classic English writers, perhaps not. But they do deliver a good story that makes sense and the characterization and surroundings are well described.

I always enjoy the Dorothy Martin mysteries. She is a middle aged lady now living in England and she's learning the ropes and roads. Are they great like our classic English writers, perhaps not. But they do deliver a good story that makes sense and the characterization and surroundings are well described. Particularly liked this one since she was on an island, in a storm, and had no support other than the people she met. The problem is that the people, who won a trip, represent different religions and all appear to find some fault in the other. Please note, this is not a book about religion. When I noted "no violence", I meant that the murder occurred without a description of blood splatters, etc. English murders are usually polite and this was the case. .

The bit of a twist that made an accident appear to be murder worked for me. It made me think, 'Okay, this main character is on the edge of bragging about helping to solve murders in England, feels a bit put-out because the Scottish police don't seem to want her help, and then realizes that she might have made a mistake - and she wants to correct it." It's nice to see a main character who is not only NOT perfect, but is made to face how she might have hurt someone by her mistake. She doesn't have to see and solve everything on her own.

For once the conclusion was somewhat ambiguous, but perhaps more true that way. Life is ambiguous. At any rate, this is a great "view" of Scotland i.e. The Hebrides - Iona. More and more, I think Jeanne Dams is a perfectly skilled writer!
  • Whitebinder
a fun easy cozy read ..enjoy the series
  • FireWater
Good British murder.
  • FailCrew
Third in the series changes location which adds a little extra interest. Perfect vacation reading when you want the challenge of a detective story without too much stress.
I hope Ms. Dams writes 20 more. The British Cozy genre is my very favorite and the author is a master
story teller.
