Oxford Shift Reviews
I thought that the first mystery featuring Kate Ivory, authoress and part time sleuth, was a nice story - but since then I have become hooked! With her quirky fashion sense and interesting taste in men, Kate does manage to get herself into trouble. The focus this time is on the disappearance of her "friend" Emma's mother. While getting to know her own - long absent - mother, Roz, Kate also gets to know George, Emma's brother-in-law. The villian of the piece is a rather creepy woman, Ruth - we get to know her just enough to have goose pimples. As with the other mysteries in the series, Kate's private life is just as important as solving the crime. The actual "crimes" may be less tightly developed than in some other series, but Kate's the main thing. After the events at the end, Kate will need all her humor and resilience. I am really looking forward to the next in the series. Read the stories in chronological order, as Kate's personal life is just as interesting as solving the crimes.
