I received a copy of this book for free, and I leave my review voluntarily.
Kerry Wilkinson is originally from the county of Somerset; Kerry spent way too long living in the north of England, picking up words like ‘barm’ and ‘ginnel.’ When he’s short of ideas, he rides his bike, hikes up something, or bakes cakes. When he’s not, he writes it all down.
“And then someone started screaming.”
Millie is pretty reclusive, not by choice but by necessity. If it weren’t for visits with her her son, Eric, and her best friend Jack, she would most likely not see many people. Volunteering at the retirement home helped ease some of the loneliness. Until one of the residents tells Millie, she witnessed someone being pushed off a roof. Now, Millie is curious and in search of the truth.
I enjoyed this book. It opened with a scene discussing cheese, which was fantastic. I love how the groundwork has been laid for this series.
Millie is an interesting character. I like her, and I think she will be a good character. I like Guy, too. He uses comedic elements excellently in the story, and I like the balance between him and Millie. I also found Jack endearing, and I look forward to getting to know him more as the series continues.
The way this story unfolded, I had my assumptions and was wrong. I love how Kerry tells a story. He can bring so many elements into bringing the narrative to life, and his characters are always excellent.
I am invested in this story, and I love that it’s a story within a story. I have so many questions, so I must jump into the next book immediately.
