"A wedding is on the horizon for Lane Winslow and Inspector Darling. As one of the few Russian speakers in her community, Lane is obliged to act as translator and hostess for Countess Orlova, an elderly Russian woman who has tracked her missing brother to the Nelson area. Nelson PD investigates, but then the murder of a lone hunter in the hills above King's Cove takes top priority. Darling works the case with a Constable Oxley--a newcomer to the area, assigned in Constable Ames' temporary absence--and a British agent contacts Lane to warn her to be on the lookout for a fleeing Russian defector. Bound by the Wartime Secrets Act, Lane is conflicted about keeping the information from Darling, especially when it begins to put a strain on their relationship."--

This series just keeps getting better. I love the time period, right after WWll. The books are not a quick read - however once I start, it's hard to put down! The characters are complex and hard to forget.

This one and #4 in the series are my favourites.

This is a series I've come to enjoy since the debut in 2015. With six books published in 4 years, the author knows how to accommodate her readers - I always get a little giddy when I see a new title being published. The author is Canadian and the books are set in post WW2 British Columbia. The protagonist is a British young lady who has chosen to settle in a small village, after the war, to distance herself from the craziness and confusion she experienced as an allied spy during the war. Does she succeed? - not really, hence the books.
