Book Description

A babbling brook runs alongside a wooded glade, surrounded by autumn light and birdsong. But next to the stream a young woman lies dead, her once bright blonde hair now limp and lifeless…

Melissa Craig has settled into a new job in the charming Cotswolds village of Upper Benbury. She is teaching French to several of the local teenagers, which gives her a fascinating insight into the young people’s lives. Material for a new novel perhaps…

Her quiet life is interrupted when she sees her new neighbour running out of the woods in a blind panic. Melissa rushes to help him, but what she finds leaves her breathless: the body of young woman is lying on the bank of the river.

When suspicion falls on Melissa’s neighbour, a man with a difficult past trying to make a new start, Melissa feels determined to prove his innocence. With the village in turmoil, and the police sure they’ve got their man, she must act quickly.

As she interviews the local residents, she realises there are several sinister characters lurking inside those charming Cotswold cottages… Could one of them have hurt Cissie? Was it the strange old man with a cottage near the river? Or the ailing ex-choirmaster with quite an eye for the ladies?

When Melissa Craig decides to get her teeth into a case, she doesn’t let go – nothing will stop her from solving this murder. Can she prove the innocence of her new friend? And will she unearth the culprit before another young life is taken?

    I am pleased to see the series continues to evolve. Ex-boyfriend Ken Harris is in NYC being a PI, next door neighbor Iris Ash is married and living in the South of France. Graham Shipley, a fortyish teacher has moved into the cottage next door. Apparently he has suffered some type of a break down and is on medication for his nerves. Mel makes a few friendly overtures, but they are not received well.
    This has been the darkest of the series, a teenager dies, and Graham is suspected as the murderer.
    Another good entry in the series. As always, well drawn characters and strong sense of place.
    Thanks to netgalley and the publisher for an electronic ARC, all opinions are my own.
    Highly recommended.
