“Broomsticks Over Flaxborough” by Colin Watson

It’s been a couple weeks since I visited Flaxborough and I just had to check and see what Inspector Purbright is up to. Well, he certainly has his hands full in this story with witches and Lucies and dead store managers. Once again, Colin Watson does not disappoint. When Edna Hillyard disappears and Mr. Persimmon is found dead, both after a night of dancing with the local witches’ coven, Purbright and Sgt. Love and hot on the trail of the culprit. Miss Teatime is also making herself useful with some inside knowledge into local going-on. And because it’s the 60’s there are Lucies going door-to-door asking questions. I’m not going to say any more about the Lucie’s because you really need to read the book and experience them for yourself. This is book 7 in the series and one of the best so far. Any of the books in this series will make a great summer read.

Alinefromabook’s rating:  5-star-rating 5 stars!!

    1. I really wanted to say more. The just seemed to capture the 60’s vibe so well. Although when I first read the description of their outfits I thought maybe I’d seen one at DisneyLand as a kid. I think my favorite part though was the description of the “coven” meeting at the very beginning. Just trying to imagine those men and women doing what they were doing was hysterical. This one really made me laugh. Naked Nuns is up next – that brings up some interesting pictures too.

      1. Oddly I can’t remember much about Naked Nuns – it must have been a library book I only read once, I think. I’m kinda regretting not getting it from NG now…
