My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Thank You Net Galley, Joffe books and Faith Martin for a chance to review this book.
I would really like to thank Linda Strong for having led me to Faith Martin coz it was her reviews in Good Reads that made me check it out and I am glad for once to have read such a beautiful and simple mystery and by simple it is by no accounts elementary or child’s play. But when there’s so much of bewitching of minds and ensnaring of our senses like Snape would say in Harry Potter, by the plethora of psychological thrillers out there, it was quite pleasant to read this impressive mystery by Faith Martin.
The Oxford Mystery is Book 5 in the series but it can definitely be read as standalone as I had no trouble in following the trails of Jenny the traveler cook and amateur detective. Jenny has accepted a summer job in St Bede’s college for a team of taxidermists but unfortunately lands up with a dead body in her hands. Maurice Raines is not liked by any of his fellow society members but who had reason enough to murder him? I loved Jenny’s character and her no-nonsense approach to things and look forward to catching up with other books in this series. (Sigh) There are so many good books out there!
