Amazon Editorial Review

Dawn on a cold February morning and a mist hangs over Oxford, shrouding spires and domes. Feisty novelist Kate Ivory enjoys her early morning run with the (mainly) women's jogging group. It gets her away from her word processor and she hears all the local gossip on the hoof. This morning, one of the women complains to Kate that her husband has walked out on her, taking with him the valuable antique enamel mourning-boxes given to her by her grandmother who - horrors - is coming to visit. The group plans to nick the boxes back again. How could they guess that their amateurish raid would provide the cover for a more sinister crime?

This was an ok read but it didn't grabb my attention the some book do.

It was so nice to start reading this book on the plane returning home from the convention. I like this series...more sophisticated & intellectual than many of the mysteries I read.

I find Kate to be a complicated character. Still trying to figure her out after two books of the series. :-)

The Oxford setting is atmospheric and I love it!

I'm rubbish at book reviews, so will leave it at that.

Happy New Year Eponine38 and Yorkshire-lass! This book arrived with three others and loads of cards, magnets and calendars! It's a joined birthday and Christmas packet and I'm very much looking forward to returning to Oxford with the help of Ms Stallwood. When I was there for the BC-Convention this spring, my sister-in-law was worried as Oxford is a synonym for murder in her dictionary - every week she sees a new murder or two happening in Oxford from her telly.
