    One thought on “Something in the Water”

    1. Balaclava Junction’s smart-aleck sleuth and college professor, Peter Shandy, gets another opportunity to solve a crime in Maine, just as he and his wife Helen did in the earlier Vane Pursuit. This time agrologist Shandy’s checking out some extraordinary lupines in coastal Maine and staying at an excellent family-owned inn; while dining at the inn, the irredeemably crooked Jasper Flodge literally drops dead while devouring a chicken pot pie. Needless to say, there’s no shortage of folks in [...]

    2. There are some minor inconsistencies in this one. That happens pretty often in her books but I like them anyway. You can count on zany characters and a hefty dose of humor to make reading this series enjoyable.

    3. The Peter Shandy mysteries are very well done. They entertain with wit and do not insult ones intelligence. They are quite refreshing.

    4. This was a relief after struggling through one of the Grub-and-Stakers books. Peter has been kicked out of his home since his wife Helen is having a ladies-only party. He is staying in Pickwance Maine, hoping to collect seeds from some fantastic lobelia plants he has heard of. One night at the inn, a fellow diner suddenly keels over dead into his chicken pie. The inn owner fears that her business will be affected because people think she poisoned him. Along with the murder plot is another side p [...]

    5. This is my favorite of the Peter Shandy mysteries I've read so far - great characters, wild plot and a stunning conclusion. Once again, we meet an amazing, great-hearted elderly woman, Miss Rondel, and as a bonus we get Elva Bright, an innkeeper of enormous dignity, common sense and honesty. Hope to see them again in later books in the series.

    6. #9 in the Peter Shandy mystery series.Massachusetts horticulturalist Peter Shandy is famous for his rutabagas, but he comes to Maine with a loftier plant in mind. Specifically, he wants to size up the world-renowned lupines of Frances Rondel, a nonagenarian whose legendary flowers are even more beautiful in life than they are in myth. Shandy is bitterly jealous, but finds a major distraction in the dining room of the country inn where he's staying. He may grow wretched lupines, but no gardener c [...]

    7. Interesting characters; set on the Maine coast. Professor Peter Shandy is visiting the small community of Pickwance in order to escape his wife's hen party and to see and hopefully, collect seed samples of the extraordinary lupines growing there. During his meal at the quaint inn where he has taken up residence for the duration of his visit, a much disliked local, Jasper Flodge, falls face first into the gravy accompanying his chicken pot pie and is found to be dead--the culprit may be cyanide p [...]

    8. One of my favorite Peter Shandy mysteries, this takes place in Maine and shows an understanding of northern Maine folks that I found delightful, including the description of Maine shore rocks being so friendly to one's buttocks. Ms. MacLeod has a way with words and quotes that is wonderful. The characters, both new and old, are fun and interesting. Although I figured out both mysteries before the end, it was still a great read. I particularly enjoyed trying to visualize the paintings through Pet [...]

    9. Probably the slowest paced of the Shandy novels. It was still well written and the evil mastermind was a bit of a surprise. I did think the last couple of pages seemed a little rushed. Though explained well enough to be clear, it probably could have benefited from another couple of pages of set up for the arrest. My biggest complaint: No Thorkjeld Svenson, my favorite character.The hardcover was well formatted with only a couple of noticeable spelling/grammar mistakes.

    10. This is another in a series of lighthearted murder mysteries by Charlotte Macleod. The main character is Professor Peter Shandy of the Bacalava Agricultural College who is checking out the lupine garden of a resident and visiting a friend in Maine when a diner in the inn where he is staying pitches forward into his chicken pie, the victim of cyanide poisoning. The story is a good read.

    11. I can’t express how much I enjoy Charlotte MacLeod’s stories. She creates characters that invite you into their quiet life while they hunt for who did it. Her style makes me think of Georgette Heyer’s mysteries and Agatha Christie’s Miss Marple mysteries.

    12. Good story overall, excellent intertwining of all the individual stories however the ending was a bit abrupt.

    13. Quirky in a good wayEnjoyable mystery with additional twists to throw you off. Love the characters and how each add something to the story

    14. Solving the mystery is almost incidental in this volume, but that doesn't stop it from maybe being one of my favorites in the series. Rather delightful all around.
