This is the latest book in the Hamish Macbeth Mystery series. Hamish is a "copper" in a small Scottish village. As always, the book was pure enjoyment to read and you should read if you like a cozy mystery. Start at the beginning of the series though. It's worth it.

One reviewer calls this book whimsical and I agree. It's quite a creative story line and brings in a lot of reference to historical woman figures of the creative arts. The House at the End of Hope Street is a temporary refuge for women who have lost their way and gives one food for thought.

The sequel to Happiness Key finds Tracy Deloche thinking she’s hallucinating when she sees her ex-husband, who is supposed to be in prison, skulking around Happiness Key. Her boyfriend and lover, Marsh, is fighting his own battles when his ex-wife shows up and claims she wants to be a mother to their son. Tracy’s tenants and friends have problems of their own. Janya Kapur, a young Indian woman in an arranged marriage, thought that she and her husband were growing closer. Now, however, he seems to be pulling away and cannot even bear to touch her. Funky Wanda decides to open a pie shop only to find her efforts sabotaged by another pastry shop owner in town. To top it off, Alice and her granddaughter Lizzie befriend a mysterious woman and her child who have rented the vacant cottage; a woman who they are sure is hiding from something or someone.
