Book Review: Signatures in Stone, by Linda Lappin

Signatures in StoneSignatures in Stone by Linda Lappin
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is a masterfully written cozy mystery that takes you to Italy. The descriptions of Italy are wonderful, and gives you the true essence of the place.

The story takes place in 1928. The heroine, Daphne, is a writer of mysteries living in Paris, who has a taste for hashish. She is having trouble completing her next book, so her publisher takes her to Italy to get her away so she can write in peace.

The fun starts when they arrive at a old rundown villa with a surly maid and a garden full of mysterious statues.

The story slowly and beautifully unfolds, and is expertly told. Some of the best writing I've seen in a while.
