    1 thought on “North Sea Cottage (Tora Skammelsen Book 1)”

    1. I thoroughly enjoyed this book; the cottage in the title is owned by Tora’s aunt, Bergatora. As soon as I began reading I was immediately transported in place away to the other side of the North Sea to Denmark with Tora, and in time back to the Second World War, with her aunt, Bergatora. In just a few words Dorte Hummelshoj Jakobsen draws a vivid picture of the old fisherman’s cottage surrounded by dense sea fog.Tora is struggling to overcome her own problems when she is faced with a new pro [...]

    2. A very entertaining quick read. The characters are well developed, even if the novel is very short, and the ending is very surprising. It really blindsided me.

    3. Tora Skammelsen is given the use of her aunt’s cottage on the north coast of Denmark on the condition that she leave the stable undisturbed. The condition becomes impossible to fulfill when the stable catches fire. It is not long before Tora discovers a trap door and a skeleton. A short but diverting read.

    4. Some family relationships can be deadly.It's WW2 and the resistance is strong on the Danish coast. But the women must stay home and be stronger still. Now jump ahead to today and find Tora Skammelson, a lady separated from her husband moving into an aunt's cottage. Tora's dad was born here during the war, but she wants solitude for her writing. Then there is a fire in the stablee one place she promised not to botherd in sifting through the rubble a skeleton is found in the cellar. Police forensi [...]

    5. I had looked at this author's "Cosy Knave" series but couldn't get into them as they were a bit too whimsical for my tastes, however this one sounded intriguing and I wasn't disappointed.This is a dual time story where you get the now and the previously and as the story progresses you get more clues as to what happened and whodunnit.This is a novella, but I didn't feel like it was too short. In fact I thought it was a well rounded tale and will certainly read more of this genre by this author

    6. A good mixture of past and presentA really enjoyable read, taking place between war time and then present day Denmark. A family mystery that Tora tries to unravel with the help of a local detective. It ended a bit suddenly though. Tora found out what had happened, and that was it. End of! I wanted to know a bit more.

    7. Terrific WritingThis is one of those books you have trouble putting Down. When you do, you long for the time when you can re-engage with Tora.

    8. It was an interesting story as told by the niece and her aunt. Finding out that she was not related except through her grandmother. Would have liked to read some finishing touches.
