Review: Dying in the Wool by Frances Brody

Kate Shackleton's friend is getting married and she wants her father to walk her down the aisle - only her father has been missing for years.  So she begs Kate to find him since she had luck in the past finding missing soldiers after the war.  Kate does so and finds secrets that do not bode well.

I really enjoyed the setting and details of this book.  The Mill town is described well and each chapter begins with a piece of information about weaving textiles that I found a nice bonus.

Kate is likeable and I look forward to more of her adventures

  1. So glad you've reviewed Frances Brody's 1920s historical mystery. I love this series. Kate Shackleton is a well-drawn character and these mysteriesjust get better. Don't miss "A Woman Unknown."
