I found this series of historical Beatrix Potter mysteries about a year ago.? They are by Susan Wittig Albert, who also writes a number of other mystery series, one historical (early 1900s, with her husband, as Robin Paige), another current, but set in a particular richly detailed setting, like Pecan Springs, Texas (which doesn’t exist), and featuring a different herb in each.
I love all of them, though I don’t read many mysteries any more.? Just every now and then when I need to turn my brain off and stare blankly into space.? Instead of that, I sometimes pick up one of these non-gore mysteries.
At any rate, the sub-titled The Cottage Tales of Beatrix Potter are set in the lake district in England, where Ms. Potter did indeed have a home.? They are wonderful mysteries and studies in that time and place, village life, lots of animals, mostly small, involved.? Wonderful characters – folk you would have known and liked had you lived there – inhabit these villages and farms.? They are often presented with conundrums to solve – this mystery involves a buried treasure and death by a falling tree limb.? But was that so?? And what could the treasure have been?? Ms. Potter and her animal helpers will figure it all out.
Very much an Aaaaaaahhh book.? 😕 >
