Decent British village mystery. A widow is killed in what looks like a hit and run accident. But then we find out that her daughter, Henrietta, is not really her daughter. So who IS she? And why did someone kill Grace Jenkins?

A woman gets run over by a car. An unfortunate accident to be sure. But she leaves behind a daughter, Henrietta. But as it turns out, the truth of Henrietta's past may be a little bit more complicated than it first appears. And when someone breaks into her mother's house, the mystery only heats up.
A lot of this story revolves around Henrietta rather than Inspector Sloan which is pretty interesting. I generally enjoyed the story but, it is a product of its time, with a lot of story development but not necessarily a lot of action.

A reasonably decent cozy mystery, moderately paced.
A widow dies by hit and run under questionable circumstances, and after autopsy her 20 year old daughter finds out that she's not her biological mother. Search for her lineage starts, and a few secrets emerge.

This is the second book in the Inspector Sloan series. Even though this story is on the older side it didn't feel like that. I kind of had an idea of who the suspect was, but the story was so good it didn't matter. It wasn't obvious and the story really flowed well.

Sloan is asked to look into the what was assumed to be a hit and run accident. It was determined that the woman was murdered. Who would want to murder a woman who kept mostly to herself raising her daughter Henrietta alone. The questions that arise lead to more questions and the answers are not so easy to come by.

Looking forward to reading the next one.

This was fun! Definitely better than the first one! And once you get into her style of writing the characters really do come to life.
