Ivy Beasley Mystery
review 1: This was the first book of this series that I had read and I enjoyed both the characters and the plot. At first, I thought I had the main character, Ivy Beasley figured out, but then the elderly spinster would say or do something unexpected and I had to revise my impression of her. It was an entertaining mystery, in one of my favorite settings, an English village, with quirky characters. In this story, Ivy teams up with Deidre, her cousin, Gus, a mysterious village newcomer, and Roy, another resident of Ivy's old folks home, to solve a mystery involving two local families and their ancestors. I'm looking forward to reading more in the series.
review 2: Ivy Beasley has moved to an assisted living home in Barrington, England, near her younger cousin Deirdre.
... moreA new gentleman has rented a house on Hangman’s Row, but before anyone really gets to know him, his elderly next door neighbor is murdered. Her daughter is a prime suspect, but Gus isn’t convinced. He has a mysterious past in investigation that he hints at and enlists Ivy’s and Deirdre’s help in investigating this crime. This was a cozy English village traditional mystery set up with the busybodies being the main characters. It was very funny at times. I will be looking for more of this series. less

I liked this book. I don't like the Ivy Beasley series as well as the other one, though
Interesting story and characters but I'm in no rush to read this series further.
Not so much Ivy Beasley. Not so much Enquire Within. Pretty okay novel though.
Amusing book - great summer read.
