A brief summary of the plot is as follows;
Victoria moves to Devon to experience a slower pace of life after recovering from breast cancer. She meets the handsome and quirky farmer Albert, and together they try to piece together the clues of a murder in the village of Swaddlescombe.
The book is filled with delightful and believable characters (having lived in a few villages and having run a pub I speak from experience) who carry the plot along at the pace of pleasant walk up a meandering lane. It really was a charming read which I didn't want to end.
For me the book was a cross between Agatha's Christie's Marple and Rebecca Tope's Thea Osborne, and I hope they will be many more novels from Jo and Julia.
