It was a really pleasant journey to discover this charming little city and its curious inhabitants. I spent some very pleasant hours in the company of Maggie, a real and very realistic characters, is a very good woman, has suffered a lot and she's not perfect, she has some flaws.
Maggie Dove is a Sunday school teacher. In her garden she has an oak that she loves very much. His father had planted it and both she and her beloved dead daughter spent many hours climbing up there. Her hateful neighbor Marcus Bender wants to shoot it down, ruin his view of the Hudson River. One day Marcus is found dead at the foot of Maggie's oak. Unfortunately he doesn't die of a heart attack but is killed. The first suspect is Peter, the boyfriend of Maggie's daughter and she loves him like a son. She can't afford to lose him too and will investigate to save him.
It was a quick read, clean, pleasant, in some moments also sad. It's well written with vivid descriptions, an amazing set, engaging characters and good dialogue.
A good start for this new series. Can't wait to read the next episode.
