Elizabeth J. Duncan, winner of the Malice Domestic Best First Traditional Mystery Novel Competition, follows up her delightful debut with this sequel set in a charming Welsh village. Penny Brannigan has inherited the cottage of deceased school teacher, Emma Teasdale, and is clearing out Emma's personal effects when she comes upon a packet of letters and discoversthat Emma had a lesbian affair with a Liverpool artist in the 1960's. The artist, Alys Jones, was killed in a hit and run accident in 1970. An artist herself, Penny sets out to find who killed Alys, enlisting the help of her village friends. Because Alys was wearing Emma's coat when she died, Penny wonders if it was a case of mistaken identity. But when she visits an art exhibition at the Victoria Gallery and Museum and recognizes paintings by Alys, attributed to another artist, she believes art theft was at the heart of the case and that Alys's death was no accident.
