Sister Arnold may have lauded the closures in England for fox hunting, but I can't help thinking about the suffering it caused a lot of common people.

I was looking for a cozy after my previous reads, but this was not the right choice. Even more ridiculous than the previous books in the series, with long polemic and political digressions I could have done without.

Some really serious stuff here that reflects the life happenings of 2023 in politics and the infiltration of the drug trade into too much of daily life. The historical learning (for those of us who geek history) relates to the use of Ham Radios and Morse Code from WW2 to the present as it pertains to the regular characters. There are several mysteries to solve and the furry ones continue to be essential. Always a good read from this author!
I requested and received a free temporary EARC from Random House Publishing Group - Ballantine, Bantam via NetGalley. Thank you!

This one was slow to start-- some bits of her childhood made me a bit nauseous. I read it in a few days, and I think I liked it fine at the time, but now I'm kind of hard-pressed to remember anything about it. I'd like to give it about 2 1/2 stars, I suppose.
