Publisher's Summary

After an eventful year, Persimmon "Simmy" Brown is adjusting to life in Windermere, running her florist shop and trying to put her tragic past behind her. But just when Simmy thinks her life is quietly coming together, it begins to unravel at the seams.

With the delivery of a bouquet of flowers to an elderly lady - complete with mysterious message attached - old secrets come creeping into the light. When another old woman is found murdered in her own home, Simmy is drawn into the centre of a murder investigation. With the prime suspect naming Simmy as his alibi, the unfortunate florist knows her peaceful life in the Lake District is about to be shaken once again.

Back to Windermere

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

Yes, quite well-spent as I listened while walking the dogs and cooking.

If you’ve listened to books by Rebecca Tope before, how does this one compare?

I've listened to the first in this series. I liked the narration a little more on this, though that's just a personal reaction.

What aspect of Caroline Lennon’s performance might you have changed?

None. She did a good job.

Was The Ambleside Alibi worth the listening time?

Yes; otherwise I wouldn't have bought it, since it's a second in a series.

Any additional comments?

I've read quite a few books by Rebecca Tope. Simmy, like Thea, tends to do illogical things.... but then, I'm not always logical myself. This book was what I expected and I enjoyed it.
