Cover of: The widows club | Dorothy Cannell

About the Book

The plot is great-a group of proper English women, "sisters in sorrow", who have found discreet ways of "retiring" their problem husbands, rather than divorce, which would not be as lucrative. I especially enjoy the two elderly detectives, Miss Hyacinth and Miss Primrose. The heroine, Ellie Haskell is a lovable character, newly married and newly thin. Her home, Merlin Court,seems full of eccentric characters, such as her irresponsible cousin and her in laws with their marriage problems. Ellie must also save her husband from the sinister widows. Some of the plot seems very farfetched, but fun. This reminds me of a British version of the Charlotte McLeod books. Read this with a cup of English tea,of course. Not to be taken seriously
