I'm more than happy I got this ARC because I discovered and excellent new to me author and what I hope is a historical cozy series. The plot is engrossing and entertaining, the cast of characters is well written and likeable. It was an entertaining read, highly recommended. Many thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for this ARC, all opinions are mine.
