Ivy Beasley is a clever elderly woman who is living in a retirement home in England. In this second book in the series, Ivy is involved in a detective agency with fellow "inmate" Roy, cousin Deirdre, and possible former spy Gus. A new resident at the Springfields assisted living facility, Mrs. Alwen Wilson Jones seems to have a mysterious past...a connection to Jones Brewing Company...and a murder in nearby Measby.
As readers of Ann Purser's other series starring Lois Meade know, Ann is an amazing story teller. She brings the English countryside to life. And I love that our heroine is elderly. And that our elderly heroine has found love!
Great English cozy mystery.
