Publisher's Summary

Following a personal tragedy, florist Persimmon “Simmy” Brown has moved to the Lake District to be nearer her parents. But her peace is shattered when, at a wedding, the bride's brother is found brutally murdered. As the florist of the wedding and one of the last people to talk to Mark Baxter alive, Simmy gradually becomes involved with the relatives.

When events take another sinister turn, Simmy finds herself at the heart of a murder investigation. The chief suspects are the groom and his closely knit band of bachelor friends. They are all intimidating, volatile and secretive - but which one is a killer?

2 and a half stars

The Windermere Witness started out good but moved incredibly slow. I skipped to the end to find out the ending.

Great narration

Narrator is the best I've heard.... And I listen to a lot of audio books. Sorry is pleasant and jaunty for a murder mystery. No outrageously creative twists or turns, and the story ends rather abruptly. Overall an enjoyable, quick read.

Kept me wondering up to the last few chapters

It was well written and the mystery was kept well hidden to the end. I figured it was another character, actually I figured the group was involved. Didn't put it down to one.

3 1/2 Stars- I Was Impatient for the End to Come

Persimmon Petals is a florist shop in the Lake District owned by Persimmon "Simmy" Brown. She was named Persimmon by her hippy parents, who now run a B&B in the same area of Great Britain. She has just finished the floral arrangements for an important wedding when one of the groomsmen is discovered dead. The prime suspects are the members of the wedding and it seems that Simmy, although she does not know a great deal about the situation becomes a witness that both the police and the family turn to.

Tope can write fascinating mysteries and she can also write long, rambling stories. This, unfortunately, is a long, rambling story. I did enjoy the character development. No one of the main characters is particularly likeable. I did at times want to smack Simmy for her cluelessness, but I am curious where the author is going to take the series. About 2/3 of the way through the book I wanted the end to come faster. I did think that some of the things that happened should have happened on screen rather than Simmy arriving after the action is over but in time for the explanation.
