I read cozy and historical mysteries, a bit of Paranormal/UF, and to mix it up, I read science and gardening books on occasion.
I forgot how fun a lot of the dialogue in the first book was, so the readability of this one was a nice surprise. It's a light, entertaining read filled with eccentric characters and set in the requisite English village, but I really respected the author for taking a real-world current issue - the controversy of building a high speed train - and incorporating it into the plot, informing the reader without preaching to them.
The mystery itself was interesting if not shocking or complicated. I vacillated between liking the dynamic between the MC and her mother and wanting to smack the both of them for being so childish.
I'll definitely read the third one.
(I'm using this one for my "Mystery or Suspense" Bingo Square.)
