To be honest, I started this last fall (with a view to sending it as part of a holiday package) and couldn't get into it. I think it was due to the busy time of year and my mind being distracted by any number of things. I started it again after the holidays and really enjoyed it.

This is a mystery that takes more concentration than many of today's "cozies" (which I also love) but it is worth the effort it takes - or took me anyway - to keep the characters and their relationship to each other straight. The setting during the British colonial rule was interesting, but the characters' treatment of the Cypriots is sometimes cringe-worthy. PC it is not! Kaye's descriptions of the landscape made me feel as if I was actually there, and I wondered how much it has changed since. And all of this precedes the Turkish occupation of Northern Cyprus, still an issue today.

So this mystery is rich on several levels. Recommended!

I enjoyed reading this book. I was caught up immediately into the mystery of who committed the murder and was surprised by the ending. It was interesting reading about Cyprus and life in the 1950s. The behavior of people during the 1950s was almost as interesting as the mystery itself. I was disgusted with the stupidity of the young woman at the end of the book who agreed to a dangerous situation to help someone who definitely was not worthy of her help.

This book was left in the Little Free Library. It was released for the March 2020 Oh, the Places We Can Go release challenge and the Never Judge A Book by its Cover release challenge. (Woman on cover)
