I have been enjoying reading James Herriot's books about his experiences of being a vet in Yorkshire England. This book is set during the time leading up to WWII, and is another wonderful book in the series. It is a very refreshing read.

A cute holiday romance story. This was much better than the movie.

Review
This seventh novel in the Patrik Hedstrom series is Lackberg's best so far, and rates 4.5 stars. An intriguing mystery that kept the suspense going to the end (though I did guess correctly on one aspect of the story) is coupled with a cast of engaging characters you'll enjoy getting to know. I will be tracking down #8 and #9 in this series soon!
