Inhaltsangabe

The trees are green and hedgerows are bursting with new life as spring arrives in the Cotswolds, but inside a house that Melissa Craig used to know well, something terrible has happened....

Melissa has just finished writing her latest mystery novel and is enjoying the arrival of spring. She’s decided to let her fictional detective retire at last and perhaps put her own days of investigating behind her, too. But the ink has barely dried on the page when Melissa receives shocking news: Her estranged father has been found dead in the family home and her mother, Sylvia, is under suspicion of murder.

Melissa hasn’t seen her parents for nearly 30 years, but on hearing the dreadful news she rushes to her mother’s side. Melissa is sure that Sylvia could never commit a murder, but Sylvia does seem to be keeping secrets....

With no one else to turn to, Sylvia begs Melissa to investigate the case. Melissa knows her father was a difficult man, but now she needs to work out who wanted him dead...a disgruntled employee, the controlling family lawyer, or perhaps the woman with whom he was having an affair?

When another body is found, Melissa realizes she’s dealing with a ruthless killer. As the police close in, trying to pin both deaths on her mother, Melissa must act fast. Can she find a way to unmask the true killer before she loses her mother for a second time and possibly forever? 

If you can’t get enough of murder mysteries by Agatha Christie, Faith Martin or P. D. James, you’ll love this twisty detective novel!

"Once I started reading I couldn't put it down as it was entertaining and enthralling.... The mystery was interesting and it kept me guessing till the end.... Highly recommended!" (Scrapping and Playing, five stars)

"The quintessential cozy mystery...the storyline is fast-paced and engaging...builds to an adrenaline fuelled ending, full of action and powerful imagery. An enjoyable, escapist read that I suspect may become my secret addiction." (Jane Hunt’s Blog, five stars)

Very boring. No detecting going on. Repetitive.

After four hours nothing had happened in the book re detecting or clues. The speaker is not good at all, everyone has the same voice and way of speaking. The way and reason the murderer is detected is the most unimaginative way possible. Because he/she knew something, nobody else knew....zzzzz.
