It's Tea Time

If you like cozy mysteries, check out Jeanne M. Dams’ Dorothy Martin series. Dorothy Martin is an American widow living in the English town of Sherebury. Sherebury is a fictional university/cathedral town that is rooted in English history. Dorothy’s everyday life in her adopted country is an adventure in wonderful English scenery, interesting friends and acquaintances, and of course a mystery that needs to be solved. Dorothy is in her late 60’s, but refers to herself as middle age. Her love of wearing unusual hats, her American accent, and her ability to solve mysteries make the town residents look at her as being a little eccentric.

What would a cozy mystery be without a love interest? We find it in (retired) Chief Constable Alan Nesbitt, a distinguished, well-respected man whose wisdom helps Dorothy along the way to solve her mysteries. Give Dorothy a try. I don’t think you will be disappointed.

This sounds very derivitive of the Mrs. Pollifax books by Dorothy Gilman. Older woman (a widow), eye-catching hats, and cozy mysteries set in places around the world. The Unexpected Mrs. Pollifax starts in New Jersey, travels to Mexico, and finishes in Albania. A delightful series.
