*(I don't much care for light mystery stories where the author thinks it is necessary to throw in implausible twists or blatant red herrings - or continually put the hero/heroine in peril.)
This series is not guilty of that.
I look forward to the rest of the week, by Ann Purser.
Lois Meade, the main character, is the supervisor of a cleaning service that she started. One of her recently-hired cleaners is a bit mysterious if not eccentric. There is a mystery surrounding this woman's family. We don't know if the woman is involved in something shady or if she is just an innocent bystander. But by the end of book, all questions and curiosities are answered.
This English series is one of my favorite cozy series. It is interesting to "visit" England, have teas, go to pubs, sit in an English garden. Some of the words they use are different than the words we use. But not so many that you can't understand what they are saying - only enough to make it more interesting.
While Lois is making sure her two new employees meet her exacting standards, Lois's husband begins receiving anonymous letters insinuating that his wife is having an affair with a local policeman. People begin disappearing and strange things begin to happen, and Lois wonders if Carthanger Mill holds the key to a terrible secret.
I enjoy this series. Lois is a wild child who grew up, settled down, and now has children who are giving her grief. The Meades are a loving family, and Lois extends that caring behavior to the people who work for her.
It's fun to see this series mature. When I read the first book, I saw it painting itself into a corner by having Lois cleaning the houses in just one village. The second book in the series had her broadening her horizons, but it presented another problem: constantly meeting the policeman in the woods to pass along the information she'd gleaned. This third book in the series addresses that. (You simply cannot get away with something like that when you live in a village!) I'm definitely looking forward to book four. Lois is becoming one of my favorite characters.

The characterizations of Lois, her family and staff were good but there were too many holes in the plot, so I was disappointed.Published 13 months ago by moderatelymoderate
This is one of the books my wife was interested in reading.
She now is on to Saturday.
I liked this until the puppy is killed. I understand there is more animal cruelty in the Saturday book. Totally unnecessary.Published on August 12, 2013 by K. O'Gorman

Ann Purser's Lois Meade Mysteries are good old fashioned page turners. They also give a glimpse of life in a modern English village.Published on March 9, 2013 by LNI
