“Mrs. Mallory and a Necessary End”


is a cozy English mystery by Hazel Holt.  For those of us who like a mystery without a lot of gore and violence, the Mrs. Mallory series is a perfect fit.  In Holt’s latest edition, the widow, Mrs. Mallory, has a hard time saying no to those in need and agrees to cover shifts for a friend who works in the village thrift shop (Johanna!!).  The man who manages the shop is disagreeable and difficult to get along with.  When he turns up dead in the shop, the suspects are plentiful-  including his much aligned wife and son. Mrs. Mallory does some innocent digging around to uncover clues and track down the murderer.  A very quick read with a warm blanket and a cuppa tea.
