This was a 4 Bookset offered in a limited Kindle format with the original paperbacks no longer available. These were first published in 2014 which gives the author some credit in her writing as she may well have developed her style since. though I have not read any of them.
I read book 1 and Thought Ok, this may be one of those authors that gets better as the series progresses! A 3 star cozy.
But Oh? Book 2.... Whilst I appreciated that the author does do her research well, Book 2 went over the top. The whole interview with the Professor about Govis was one step too far. There is accuracy, and unnecessary confusion.
In terms of accuracy for instance, It was OK to mention eating in a posh place in Bray-as Bray is where Heston Blumenthal has 2 places, and other Michelin starred eating establishments cluster there. - I once lived there for 2 weeks in the middle of a hose move. A tiny village with several places to eat if you could afford them, the river Thames and a swan nesting on a slipway, an antique store open 2 afternoons a week and a similar hair-dresser. No other shops! And infrequent buses. A village scarcely inhabited. But very pretty.
I gave after book 2 - enough was enough with 3.
