I was so happy to find another charming cozy mystery series. The main characters are two Italian retired teachers, Etta and Dora, who decide to do home swapping so they can travel around Europe. This is the second in the series, but each story is a standalone. I usually don’t go for dogs who comment on the humans in books, especially those who are smarter than the people. It’s something that must be done just right or it falls flat. However, Napoleon or Leon is just so much a real basset hound his occasional point of view comes off just perfect. It’s not annoying.
At first I wondered about all the travelogue details, but then I decided I like them because they were sprinkled throughout and gave me a real flavor of the island they were visiting off the coast of Denmark. I wondered that two Italian ladies would go so far north at Christmas time, but they seem to weather it well. I have already started the first book in the series and intend to read the whole series. Intriguing mysteries and very charming realistic characters made for a pleasant reading experience. Thank you, Adriana Licio!
