This was a nearly good cozy mystery, but towards the ending things got a bit boring to me. The characters were very likable, the sleuthing was not the most exciting one. There is potential in the series, definitely. But I'm not sure if the parts in the series on old houses and their restoration will be perfect for me.
I plan to go on with the series and give at least two more books a chance, but I will wait with doing so for some months.
