Cozy mystery set in Australia
Sybil Potts moves to Little Tatterford, a small town in the middle of nowhere in Australia, seeking to find peace and quiet after the upheaval of her divorce.
Although the town is sleepy and nothing has ever happened, her arrival coincides with a murder in the property adjacent to her cottage. Sybil soon finds she is at odds with the attractive Blake Wessley, the exasperated police officer who is trying to solve the murder.
After Sibyl narrowly misses becoming the next victim, she turns her attention to the suspects. Is it the English gentleman, Mr. Buttons, who serves everyone tea and cucumber sandwiches, or her landlord, Cressida Upthorpe, who is convinced that her fat cat, Lord Farringdon, speaks to her? Or is it someone else entirely?

This was really a loser for me. I figured the whole “mystery” out in the first 30 pages. Amateurish plot and character descriptions, wouldn’t consider reading another by this author.
This is a very good read. It’s hard to believe it’s a murder mystery. The story moves along quickly and the descriptions are very good. It seems like a quaint village with very interesting people!
