It's funny, interesting. I didn't love it, but it was a pleasant reading.

In a remote Polish village, Janina devotes the dark winter days to studying astrology and taking care of the summer homes of wealthy Warsaw residents. Her reputation as a crank and a recluse is amplified by her not-so-secret preference for the company of animals over humans. Then a neighbor, Big Foot, turns up dead. Soon other bodies are discovered, in increasingly strange circumstances. As suspicions mount, Janina inserts herself into the investigation, certain that she knows whodunit. If only anyone would pay her mind . . .

A quirky dark tale, exquisitely written and thoroughly enjoyable.

Enchanted Forest Murder Mystery

This novel, a literary whodunit, brings a sense of being in an enchanted European forest. Janina, elderly, solitary, and her friend Dizzy, Oddball and Good News, become entangled in a string of murders in and around a small Polish village. All is not as it seems....
