The tale of Hill Top Farm
Susan Wittig Albert
Adult Fiction ALBERT

Comments  Summary  Reviews  Author Notes

From Publishers' Weekly:

Beatrix Potter fans will welcome the talented Susan Wittig Albert's The Tale of Hill Top Farm, the first in a new cozy series to feature Peter Rabbit's creator as sleuth. Newly arrived in Near Sawrey in 1905, the sensible and charming Beatrix, aided by an assortment of talking animals, looks into a suspicious death and several small happenings that mainly serve to introduce the residents of the Lake District village. Despite weak British dialogue ("By Jove" isn't enough), this promises to be a series with legs-and tails. (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved

From Library Journal:

When children's author Beatrix Potter moves from London to the Lake District, locals worry about female farmers and tenant eviction. Beatrix has talking rabbits, a hedgehog, and a mouse in tow and only has sketching in mind, which she hopes will take her mind off her late fianc?. The town boasts the usual, odd characters (both human and animal); a constant, muted flurry of daily activities; and the sudden, suspicious death of one of its own. Beatrix soon fits right in, sleuthing and all. A fine series start. Albert, the author of the China Bayle herbal mysteries, lives in Houston. [See Mystery Prepub, LJ 6/1/04.] (c) Copyright 2010.
