This cozy mystery was such a delight! It had charming characters, a potential budding relationship and amateur sleuth/cafe owner and baker Julia, was wonderful and her sleuthing skills pushed the boundaries (as most sleuths do) but weren’t outlandish. I also love the supporting characters who all helped steer the story along and provide that character driven connection that I love. I also cannot forget to mention the cute setting of Peridale! This small village sounds so adorable with its quirky characters and small cottages in the English countryside. This is a series I highly recommend if you want a lighthearted and quick read.
