I enjoyed this cozy mystery. This being the third book of the Honeychurch Hall Mystery series. I would suggest you read the first two books first, then this one. You will get a better feeling for the characters and their lives. As you turn the pages you will be on the edge of your seat with wonder as to what will happen next. Characters each have their distinct personalities, what with being British, and British they are. I found the book amusing at times, that smile will come on your face and I found myself chuckling at times. The author keeps the book light and airy with the humor interjected. In this cozy mystery, the author gives you a little bit of carnival life, hidden bodies, disappearing reporter, and oh, so much more. Follow the characters along with Katherine "Kat" Stanford and her mother, Iris in this well developed story with oh so many, yet to be revealed secrets. How would you like to live at Honeychurch Hall? Such descriptions of the characters, scenery and events, including researched history.
