Summary

Spring has brought many new beginnings into the world of Persimmon ‘Simmy’ Brown. Not only has her baby arrived, but she and her fiancé, Christopher, have moved to the historic village of Hartsop - and their forthcoming nuptials are only a short month away. But when a former acquaintance of Christopher’s reminds him of an undertaking made a decade previously that he hasn't fulfilled, their lives soon take a sinister turn. 

Yet even with a young baby to consider, Simmy cannot ignore her instinct to investigate, especially when the murder has a personal link to her soon-to-be husband. Assisted by her would-be detective friend Ben, can Simmy puzzle out this reckoning from the past and protect her family?

Too much about the baby

Obviously pleased that Robin has arrived safely but there was too much detail about the baby and it distracted from the story.

Love these books

I enjoy this series immensely, although this one didn't enthrall me as much as previous ones. That is probably down to the fact that several of the new characters were thoroughly unlikable and so I wasn't rooting for them in the same way, and other, more beloved characters featured much less.
Still very worthy of five stars though, and I shall still look forward to future books.
