Who knew that working as a postmistress  working at a post office in North Ashcot Post Office could be so exciting?In this second in the A Postmistress Mysteries. There's a severe storm coming to the Berkshires of Western Mass with issued warnings telling everyone to take precautions. What was strange is Daisy's Fabrics a business that was open among all the stores that were closed due to the storm.

Daisy Harmon owns Daisy's fabrics where Postmistress, Cassie purchased her fabrics for her quilting hobby. Dead by being struck by branches of a big old maple tree or could it be something more sinister? Daisy was a vibrant young woman, a gifted teacher and generous business woman but she rubs some people the wrong way.

Daisy's husband, Cliff asks Cassie to help him in the murder investigation and Cassie just happens to be best friends with the Police Chief, Sunni Smargon. Cassie soon starts receiving threatening notes at the post office and Cassie needs to watch her back before she becomes the next one stamped out.

The Postmistress mysteries actually interested me because I wanted to be a postal worker once upon a time.

and I wondered how author Jean Flowers could bring murder to a post office. It was entertaining and and exciting and suspenceful read.
 An Endearing friendship between Cassie and Sunni kept me glued to the page. Not one person was off the suspect list yet the murderer turned out to be a total surprise. Cassie needs to find the murderer before she goes totally postal. I love the the picturesque setting of the post office.
