My rating: 4 stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
If historical cosy mysteries are your bag then look no further fellow book lovers, this delightful book has it all. Set during the Second World War the Norfolk villagers of Lipton St Faith are shocked to discover the death of one of their own. The inquisitive and confident Anna, daughter of the local vicar believes there is something suspicious about the death of the village postman Ted. When Anna and an American Lieutenant, Eddie have a rather unfortunate meeting, they join forces and embark on a journey to discover the truth of this grievous crime.
You will find a lovely cast of characters to befriend and you will of course meet some dastardly enemies to instil fear into your heart. To be sure, there is engaging and gripping dialogue which will lure you in and most importantly there is a wicked plot which will keep you riveted throughout. The teasing chatter between the ever-witty Anna and Eddie provides much amusement and fun as their friendship blossoms before you upon the pages.
The interesting collection of Lipton St Faith villagers include busy bodies adept in the art curtain twitching, some who have things they wish to hide, and many who don’t trust outsiders. This book is the first in a new series so I do hope we will be hearing much more from these characters. Prepare yourself for a captivating mystery which will keep you absorbed in speculating who the murderer could be throughout.
Sit back, relax, and escape to the utterly blissful Norfolk countryside and then devour this sensational book with abundant pleasure.
