No 2 in the Benni Harper series.

Read on a short trip to Hay-on-Wye.

It’s hard to review these cosy mysteries without giving the plot away, but a nice satisfying read where our feisty cow-owning heroine Benni gets too involved in another crime. This time it’s two older folks in a home, and she has to recocile her involvement with her relationship with Gabe Ortiz, the acting chief of police.  Details of her relationship with Gramna Dove and her best friend, the arts co-op and the research she’s doing into Japanese internments in WWII make this far from one-dimensional, and I’m pleased I’ve got the next one lined up ready to read.
