In A Million Different a million different A great entry in a long running seriesWhat I likedI have read and reviewed several of Ann Purser s Ivy Beasley books but this was my first Lois Meade novel One of the things that I have always loved about Purser s writing is that it is very different from most cozies This is mostly due to the English setting It just gives a different feel to stories that makes them seem laid back even though they do involve murder The Lois Meade books also carry on that theme and have that English feel to them I enjoyed the whole shift in attitude and demeanor about the books The English are always so proper even when investigating a murderLois is the proud owner of her own cleaning business and fourteen books into the series she still finding plenty of messes to clean up I liked her no nonsense attitude and her curiosity She just seemed like on of those little ladies like Miss Marple that couldn t seem to eep her nose out of the local business She was proper and buttoned up a bit but it seemed natural to the story and was not off putting She seemed very level headed and went about the investigation along with the help of the local detectives She pushed a few boundaries and asked the uestions others didn t even think about I found Lois Meade has done enough buffing and polishing over the years with her cleaning business New Brooms to now that all that glitters is not gold So when a bag of costume jewellery is the main clue in a murder she has a strong suspicion that appearances may be deceiving After a woman is discovered in the Mill House Hotel strangled with a silver necklace besid.
Ann Purser Í 8 charactersEr refreshing to read and very different from most cozy heroinesThe mystery itself was really very interesting I loved the setting of the old mill turned hotel I have always thought the old mills were beautiful I now they have of them in England but there are still a few around here as well I thought it was brilliant idea for the setting and Purser used it well I read a lot cozies and I ve read about murders being performed with everything from poison to ice picks but murder by necklace was new to me I liked the way both murders turn up and the way Lois puts everything all together It was a little predictable in spots but overall I had a hard time pinning down the murderer and that s a good thingBottom LineFor my first book in the series number fourteen was very enjoyable I loved the English village setting and the resourceful and inuisitive heroine I liked learning as much about Lois and her family and the town where they lived as I did about the murder itself There were plenty of suspects and not an easy mystery to unravel I felt completely clued in and didn t need to have read all thirteen other books in the series to enjoy this one A great addition to the series Suspicion at Seven is a cozy mystery It s the fourteenth book in a series You don t need to read the previous books to understand this story and this book didn t spoil the previous onesThis was a clue based mystery Whodunit seemed fairly obvious to me especially as clues occurred to confirm my idea My only uncertainty was if the heroine was making a bad assumption or if she new something I didn t Turns out she was indeed overlooking something critical based on a bad assumptionI didn t like how the heroine felt totally justified in sneaking past the police tape especially as it was unnecessary and nothing was learned
from the law breaking At least I assume it s breaking the law there The characters werethe law breaking At least I assume it s breaking the law there The characters were and interesting yet some main characters seemed to decide to do certain things simply to move the story forward rather than because this was a natural interest or actionThere was occasional bad language There was no sex It s a fun enough story but it didn t engage or challenge me as much as I most enjoy from a mysteryI received this book as a review copy
From The Publisher Ithe publisher I reading this series after reading almost all of them because I got bored Thought the stories were trite and uninteresting I believe Ms Purser has her zest back This was good old Lois giving the Inspector a difficult time while at the same time becoming really annoyed because he is part of daughter s family She is a hard headed practical English housewife who has the gumption and now how to start a very succes. E a bag filled with faux silver gold and pearls costume jewelry dealer Donald Black seems like the obvious suspect But Lois nows Donald's wife who runs a baker’s shop near the hotel and can’t believe her husband could be a iller Plus Donald has an airtight alibiNevertheless Donald is no angel It appears he’s running a pyramid scheme and Lois’s moth. .
