Miller, Postmistress at the North Ashcot Post Office in North
Ashcot, Massachusetts, is gearing up for Valentine's day in
her tiny town. This year she has the pleasure of hearing the
rehearsals of the local band, The Ashcots, who are using the
community room at the Post Office to practice for their upcoming
Valentine’s Day dinner/dance at the senior center. When
the murder of one of the band members, Dennis Somerville,
a local college professor, looks to be linked to some harassing
mail is brought to Cassie's attention, she once again puts
on her investigating hat to help find the culprit to ease
her mind of guilt that is plaguing her.
This is my first introduction to Jean Flowers
and this book series. I was immediately smitten with the premise
of the book, as I have always loved sending and receiving
letters and venturing into the post office to buy colorful
postage stamps of all varieties. I love the character of Cassie.
She is hard-working and honest and has a lovely curious demeanor,
and you can feel the value and importance she places on her
relationships with friends and loved ones. This book has a
fun small town atmosphere with a great cast of characters.
The story was fast-paced and had a ton of twists and turns
in what became two mysteries. I very much enjoyed figuring
them both out. I was happy to see the cliff hanger that we
were left with on the last page, and I can't wait until the
next book to see how that plays out!
forget to read the fun post office stories at the end of the
book, for a few quick laughs!
