A cozy with an edge.
In the final book of this mystery series, Cecily and Baxter have to solve the most sinister, frightening crime the Pennyfoot has ever had. Maids are being murdered in the hotel and the clues are puzzling.
Also in the story, the colonel has an interesting companion to share his war stories with and to compete with the affections of Phoebe. Cecily hopes for a change in her last name. Gertie has a new arrival and a decision to make. One twin is gone in search of fame and the other is missing her. And the Pennyfoot takes on a new technology. While murder and mayhem takes hold of the hotel, the residents, staff and villagers experience changes, and learn the end of an old way of life may be the beginning of many new lives.
As always, enough twist and turns to keep you guessing and enough activities and characters to keep you entertained. Trust me, you will not be disappointed.
This series is so well written. I would not be surprised if one day the Pennyfoot and Badgers End showed up on the Telly.
