The Green Case by Diana Xarissa
It’s just after Christmas at Joan and Janet’s B&B in Doveby Dale. With few guests to keep the sisters busy, Janet has joined a womens’ group to make new friends in the area. One of the members wants to invite men to join the group, and they decide to have an introductory meeting with 2 prospective men, a retired investment banker and a retired antique dealer. After overhearing her friends’ conversations with these men, Janet becomes concerned that her friends are being duped out of their savings. Using her snooping skills, she starts asking questions, but can she prevent her friends from being fleeced?
This clean novella-length series proves you don’t need a murder to make a great mystery.The relaxed pace and gentle mystery makes it all so easy to get sucked into the world of Doveby Dale and its quirky citizens. It was adorable watching Janet navigating the world of dating, with not one but two beaus vying for her attention. I always knew Janet was a saucy little minx!
Overall, The Green Case is an enjoyable little story, so grab a cup of tea and curl up with it this afternoon!
