    1. This is the next instalment of Verity Long s murderous adventures In saying that, you don t need to have read her previous outings, any filling in of characters is quickly done If you have read the previous stories, you will feel at home in Verity s world.This story takes her into the world of Brownies and Scouts, even though she doesn t particularly like children, she s the love them and leave them quickly type of woman, a bit like me, lol.The story flows along quite nicely I didn t bother tryi [...]


    2. Entertaining This is a funny and entertaining series I enjoy the characters and how they interact with each other The plot is always interesting and flows nicely I recommend this book and series to anyone who likes to read cozy mysteries.


    3. I love the Verity Long Mysteries series There are some cozy mysteries that take me a while to go through but this isn t one of them The characters are all entertaining and there is always a good story to it I will be reading Book 4 for sure.

    6. Enjoyed all the Brownie camp stuff painfully familiar Good fun as usual straight on to Murder by the Glass.
