My lovely SIL gave me two books in a series this past summer. They have nothing to do with knitting or spinning or scrapbooking. They are part of the “Pennyfoot Hotel Mystery” series, the holiday collection. They are a light easy read, perfect for a bit of diversion before the holiday season hits. Yes it will be Halloween before we know it.
This series is set at a hotel along the English coast in the early 1900s. I’ve found the differences between then and now to be very interesting. Love my dishwasher! I also enjoying traveling at dangerous speeds in my car, over 20 miles per hour. 🙂 Life would be very different without all of the modern tools we use.
These books are murder mysteries with a female sleuth; her friends, family and employees try to help or hinder her attempts at sleuthing. Either to protect her or to keep secrets from becoming public. Of course those keeping secrets for personal reasons divert her from the real villain in the story. Sometimes with dangerous results.
These books are set during the Christmas Season, but the two I’ve read are not overtly religious, so they are appropriate for readers of any religion. Why not take a little break for yourself before the hectic Fall holiday season begins?
The author of the series is Kate Kingsbury and you can find out more about her, her pseudonyms and her writing at her website.
