A COZY MURDER MYSTERY SET IN A PICTURESQUE CUMBRIAN VILLAGE.

It’s a glorious autumn evening in Tarnfield when Deborah Arbiter falls to her death.

What was she doing on the roof of her old Georgian country house, St Jane’s?

People think Deborah was up there inspecting a leak. But Suzy Spencer doesn’t believe the seventy-year-old was doing DIY.

Deborah gave up a glittering career in law to start a women’s refuge in her beautiful family home.

Then when one of Suzy’s friends disappears, she uncovers a shocking connection to Deborah and St Jane’s.

One woman falls to her death at St Jane’s. One woman never arrives.

Can Suzy Spencer get to the bottom of these sinister goings-on before anyone else pays the ultimate price?

A new series of cozy mysteries full of red herrings and twists and turns.

Perfect for fans of Rhys Bowen, Richard Osman, Jeanne M. Dams, Frances Evesham, Simon Brett, Margaret Mayhew, Jane Adams, Betty Rowlands and M.C. Beaton.

THE DETECTIVES
Suzy Spencer
After her husband runs off with his PA, part-time TV producer Suzy is left to bring up their children alone in quiet, rural Tarnfield. Despite only moving there for Nick’s work, she’s actually grown to like the pace of village life, and has thrown herself into volunteering with the church.

Robert Clark
After the death of his beloved wife Mary, Robert finds himself at a loose end, alone with his grief. He wants any opportunity to distract himself from the painful memories.

THE SETTING
Beautiful, quiet and secluded, Tarnfield is a charming Cumbrian village where everyone knows everybody’s business. The local gossip is like a soap opera — except that the drama has been running for at least fifty years. The church plays a huge part in village life, but traditions are being upended by the new vicar and his fondness for playing the guitar during sermons.
