I liked this book. There is a nice balance of intriguing plot and character development. The story moves along at a steady pace that seemed just right to me. There is a variety of characters, each distinctive. From the beginning of the book, a key question is whether there actually was a murder.
The tone of this book seems a little more serious than many "cozy" mysteries (I do enjoy "cozies"). The characters are a little more intricate, the tone a bit more somber. For me that made the book more interesting and involving, but not at all depressing. There are no graphic descriptions of sex or violence, and no excessive use of profanity.
This is the second Deborah Crombie book that I've read and I liked this one even more than the first. I look forward to reading more books in this series.

no nasty blood and gore or CSI in this novel. It's reminiscent of Agatha Christie. Suspicious death in an English town with a closed cast of characters, and a detective who solves the mystery with his little grey cells after interviewing all the suspects. The author is good at creating a lot of red herrings to keep the reader guessing til the end. An easy and enjoyable read.
