DJ´s Bait in the Box # 79

[This delicious tin belongs to Kelly, Kelly´s Thoughts and Ramblings]


Written in another millenium, this cosy mystery may be considered old.


The girl cried again, ´Don´t ... don´t push -!´

Then there was a terrible cry and a splash as something heavy hit the water. Then silence.


Charlie stepped back into the shelter of the hedge. He was trembling, his nerve ends jumping like fleas on a hot plate. It was some time before he could start to make his way home. And when he did, more than one person noted his progress, for an English country village, despite all appearances to the contrary, is never quite asleep.


The Rules:

A book series, in a two words peaceful English village, the second one reminds me of a dog, if I'm right.

As usual, I have no idea, but I love the way this was written. I'll be looking for the review.

Margot Kinberg sagde ...

Dorte - If I'm right, then this title is all about sanctuary.

Dorte H sagde ...

Jose Ignacio: correct as usual! Top marks from the teacher :D

Beth: you may know the series from TV.

Margot: spot on (or perhaps searching for it without finding it).

What a great tin - at first I thought it had tobe a Cadbury's chocolate tin as it is that colour purple.

Like fleas on a plate - what a wonderful description.

Tracy: I think you´d like this book.

How fun to see one of my favorite tins! I had an Easy Bake Oven like the one pictured on it when I was a little girl.

The book does sound good. I look forward to the review.

Kelly: it is a gorgeous tin, and just the right kind of thing for this book.
