    The writing was very sexist. The 30 year old narrator Tim meets the 17 year old daughter of a now dead friend and immediately lusts after her. Naturally she is beautiful and is trembling at the knees after meeting him. She also cooks, sews and cleans. Smart too. Doesn't know too much about gardening but agrees to give it a go so Tim can get on with his writing career. So much for the modern woman. The mystery was barely a mystery and the story at one point diverted into a debate on religion. The dog is in the story early and late but in the middle was left at home to pine.

I've read a few of this author's books and have come to enjoy them very much. They are written in a cozy mystery style but seem more realistic. I find the mystery is well paced and the ending believable. The characters are well defined, the dialogue is quite quaint. A very easy and enjoyable read.

    I only gave this book 3 stars, but I still recommend reading it. It's short and kind of fun. The plot, an assault mystery, is nothing special, but the characters a interesting and quirky, as is the author's sense of humor.

    What a terrible book! A rambling, repetitive narrative with almost comically cringeworthy sexism and poorly motivated characters. I ended up not caring who attacked Tim and simply wishing they'd done a better job!
