    Threats at Three is one of my favorite mysteries by this author.Many current community issues as well as social problems are woven into the plot of this story The community effort to save the village s historical meeting hall by organizing a fund raiser that included a soapbox derby.I remember soapbox derbies that were held in the town that I grew up in so that was nostalgic for.This part of the plot included conflict with characters who favored new buildings over saving historical ones and thi Threats at Three is one of my favorite mysteries by this author.Many current community issues as well as social problems are woven into the plot of this story The community effort to save the village s historical meeting hall by organizing a fund raiser that included a soapbox derby.I remember soapbox derbies that were held in the town that I grew up in so that was nostalgic for.This part of the plot included conflict with characters who favored new buildings over saving historical ones and this is an issue that many communities face.The other plot line about a mother of four struggling to provide for her family and deal with a teenager that is confused and conflicted was written in a realistic and sympathtic style.Of course, Lois and her family and employees at New Brooms are an important part of the story,

    Had a little trouble at first getting into the story, but after a while, got into it Enjoyable.

    Tenth in the satisfying Lois Meade series, another predictably entertaining cozy murder mystery set in the English countryside.

    this was just so dull and boring I skimmed a bit, okay, maybe a lot Too many characters, too much description of every single thing they did Not recommending this one.

    This was a difficult book to rate I may have been too generous I liked most of the characters but the relationship between the police inspector and the main character a bit creepy and there are not many people I know who would call a member of the police force stupid or tell him her to shut up The ending was a little too pat for me and there was not much of a mystery either.

    This is the 10th book in the Lois Meade cleaning mystery series, on loan from my mother in law.The Meade family were all workaholics in the other books, and pretty much had to be, as they ran three businesses Lois cleaning business, Derek s electrician business, and Josie s store So, it was odd and almost out of character to see them taking time off to do a family activity together, going to the space museum, just for the fun of it Perhaps that was the influence of having a grandbaby, altho This is the 10th book in the Lois Meade cleaning mystery series, on loan from my mother in law.The Meade family were all workaholics in the other books, and pretty much had to be, as they ran three businesses Lois cleaning business, Derek s electrician business, and Josie s store So, it was odd and almost out of character to see them taking time off to do a family activity together, going to the space museum, just for the fun of it Perhaps that was the influence of having a grandbaby, although, admittedly, it wasn t for his benefit.It also seemed odd to me that once they arrived, they didn t stay together to enjoy each other s company, but each went their own way It soundedlike a carpool than family time.It was also sad that others envied them their happy, smiling faces from the expedition Yes, the Meades didn t always see eye to eye did they ever and they could be cold to each other, but they tended to stand up for each other, and Lois and Josie have become confidants, to a point.I liked the 13 year old and his mother in this book So many people had volunteered to try to help him that it was truly taking a village to raise him and draw him away from some of the negative influences around him The last choice he made in this book was a sad one, though understandable The other characters seemed to think he would be OK afterwards I think he would need some counselling and some time to heal emotionally as well as physically.The abusive husband in this story had determined that he never wanted to hit anyone again That s good, but it remained to be seen whether he could keep his resolution Actually changing might be harder than he realized, and I think his wife was too trusting to accept him back, perhaps at all, but definitely so soon If she actually wanted to do that, there should have been family counseling and a great deal of accountability and a gradual return, rather than just suddenly deciding everything s OK He needed to earn back trust over time.Hunter Cowgill was getting evensappy, and Lois didn t do as good a job rebuffing him as usual I think she wascompassionate towards him, but that could prove dangerous
