A nice cozy British mystery - I liked the author's use of the first person - alternating chapters were told by Dee or Barry, a husband and wife team who solve a mysterious murder during their holiday stay at the Grove. The only thing I didn't like about this book was the author's tendency to have the characters regularly spout French sayings in their conversations such as "cherchez la femme" and "crime passionnel" - it seemed pretentious & I found it a bit annoying - was she trying to make the characters seem more sophisticated & continental? This habit seemed to lessen by the end of the book (or I got used to it!) - overall, a pleasureable holiday read.
