A good old fashioned pot boiler.
30 November 2020 | by Sleepin_DragonSee all my reviews

Colonel March isn't necessarily the first person you would associate with a spell at the beauty parlour, but that's the setting for this mystery.

It's a typical, good old fashioned pot boiler. March is caught up in a feud between a young widow, and her tyrannical mother in law, equal partners in the salon.

I can understand why this isn't everyone's favourite, but it has its feet very firmly on the ground, a good old fashioned tale of family fallout.

Elspet Grey is lovely as Joanna, you will recognise her by that glorious voice straight away.

Rather enjoyable, 7/10.
