Certainly, they want to find out the truth about what happened to Topsy but there’s also a reluctance rather than a supreme self-confidence, a feeling that maybe they shouldn’t be getting involved in things about which they know nothing.

Watching them being pushed out of their comfort zone was quite entertaining and I think the author really managed to portray it wasn’t always easy for them. All of this rolls together to create multiple questions that need to be answered, some of which are related to the main plot and some of which are not. Hence coffee o'clock every Thursday in the café at Thirsk Garden Centre (good parking, well away from tourists). With their wit and wisdom, these seniors do things even I couldn't dream of, often reminding me of my beloved Miss Marple. While the mystery and the ladies antics were somewhat humorous, there are some serious issues dealt with in this story.It quickly becomes clear that Topsy is no longer the woman she once was - she's fast deteriorating with a dementia-type illness. However, the narrative does take a while to pick up the pace, and only does so after the halfway mark. Gossiping about family and their old days teaching it's a low stress hour out of their "busy" schedules. Up pops an entire array of, quite frankly, despicable people who don’t even think twice in ripping off the vulnerable. It reminded me of ‘Dinner Ladies’ a Uk sketch show meets ‘Midsomer Murders’ a uk drama come something else in between that I cannot quite think of.

As the daughter of a teacher, I found that their interactions and preoccupations evoked a sense of nostalgia for listening to my mother and her colleagues-friends chatter during quilting nights. M. Hall is a fun cosy mystery in which three retired school teachers become involved in a case of possible murder. Liz is a lifelong worrier with a sweet and sensitive conscience, most likely to be on hand when someone is needed 'to dispense tissues, wipes, and make gentle conversation'. Be pagrindinės mįslės – Topsy mirties, pakeliui eksmokytojos išnarplios dar keletą šalutinių, nors kažkiek ir susijusių su ta pagrindine. All three are engaging characters, and I especially loved Pat's no-nonsense approach to life and humorous self-deprecating asides.Our amateur sleuths in this case are three recently-retired elementary school teachers: Liz, Thelma and Pat. And who are the pushy real estate agent and her rather dishy young assistant, who always seem to be hanging around Topsy's home? Pat is bright and attractive, the wife of Rod, (a builder) but worries about her youngest, teenage son, Liam. Grab yourself a cup of tea and a nice, warm blanket because if cosy crime is your thing, I think you will enjoy ‘A Spoonful of Murder‘ too.

Having worked together for twenty plus years, they now meet up once a week on a Thursday at a garden centre cafe to catch up and have a good gossip. I think, could be Liz) and we come to learn he is “outted” as gay on Facebook by someone from his school. Sprinkled between 3 retired ladies trying to solve a mystery there are the normal anxieties and worries of every day life. Their lives are rather mundane at the start, they have some excitement then go back to normal again afterwards.It is a British cozy mystery featuring three kind, smart, and curious protagonists who have extra time on their hands since they retired. Topsy is a victim in more ways than one, and each of those elements of her story serve to muddy the waters, and keep the truth of the whole story hidden until the very last moment. MY THOUGHTS: A Spoonful of Murder is an entertaining cosy murder mystery starring three very down to earth retired teachers, any one of whom could be your neighbour.
