Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
"When Dorothy Martin and her ex-policeman husband Alan are asked by some good friends to look into a series of petty crimes that are perplexing the local Mounties in the picturesque Canadian city of Victoria, they immediately jump on a plane to British Columbia and settle themselves into the heart of the local community. Drinking champagne with the local businessman and would-be politician as well as cups of tea with the local recluse, they infiltrate all ranks of Victoria society. But when a young woman goes missing and a body is discovered, it would appear that the petty crimes have turned deadly. With their ability to get to the root of a crime and dig out the culprit, it's not long before Dorothy and Alan realize they have embarked on a trip that will become far more dangerous than they ever envisaged."--Provided by publisher.

    In Victoria, B.C., far from their home in England, American Dorothy Martin, a former schoolteacher, and her British ex-cop husband, Alan, are investigating a series of thefts, at the request of their Canadian friends. At first, it's a bit of a lark, a chance to immerse themselves in Canadian culture and encounter people from various levels of Victoria society, but soon, after a disappearance and the discovery of a body, the lark becomes something else entirely. She may be outside her sleuthing comfort zone, at least geographically, but Dorothy won't let an unfamiliar city and its unfamiliar people stand in the way of ferreting out a killer. Dams makes a smart decision, sending Dorothy and Alan on a trip; it's a nice way to shake up the series without altering it structurally, giving the action a fresh feel while retaining all of its familiar elements. Good stuff for cozy fans. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.
