Nestled in the hills of the Cotswolds, the village of Duntisbourne Abbots is a well-kept secret. When Joel Jennison is found slaughtered in the same field where his brother's corpse had lain ten weeks previously, a whole community falls under suspicion. Was it a family feud? An act of revenge? As a forty-something woman with no previous experience of detective work, Thea Osborne knows she shouldn't be getting involved but as she calls on her neighbours to get some answers, she uncovers more tragedy and intrigue that she thought possible behind the chocolate-box façade of a peaceful Gloucestershire village.

    " I enjoyed this book.It is of course a cozy but I found it quite interesting and enjoyed the ending. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jane | 2/12/2014

    " I enjoyed this book but perhaps not quite as much as I expected to. It's set not far from where I live but somehow I could never make the fictitious setting quite fit with places I know. This is apparently the first in a series featuring the main character and various places in the area and I'm still undecided whether to try the next one. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kirsty Darbyshire | 2/10/2014

    " Enjoyable stuff as always from Rebecca Tope. Commendable because it's in many ways got a typical 'cosy' mystery setup (newly widowed housesitter stumbles into murder investigation in pretty village) but managed to never make me scream 'no, don't go down the dark staircase to the cellar alone without a torch!' even though the central character did some things that were almost as bad as going down that rickety staircase a few times. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sally | 2/1/2014

    " This is a new series for me. I enjoyed the scenery, and the main character is interesting as well as a new kind of amateur sleuth. I will read the rest of these. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Piper D | 1/31/2014

    " This book is great. It brought back wonderful memories of the Cotswold and I like the sleuth and her dog. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Fran Shaw | 1/23/2014

    " average...not too sure I'll read the others... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brenda Hawley | 1/8/2014

    " I love the Cotswolds so I thought this series would be fun. The plots are stilted and the characters pretty predictable but the setting is fabulous. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Booksdingle | 12/24/2013

    " didn't really like this - setting good but didn't feel I cared about any of the characters or really of what happened to them,gave up on this about 100 pages from the end. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Ruth | 12/14/2013

    " Eh? Not for me. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Donna Irwin | 12/8/2013

    " Got this cheap, glad I didnt pay a lot for it! Story slow and a bit dull! OK thoiugh "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Wanda | 12/7/2013

    " This was an easy read but not a great book. I will not read any more in the series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 David | 12/4/2013

    " Not too bad but would only read occasionally as I like a more intense thriller. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Dawn | 8/26/2013

    " did not actually finish it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Cathy | 6/13/2013

    " A little staid and fairly unbelievable protagonist. Slow. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Susan | 12/15/2012

    " Beautiful prose but the story is rather tedious. Rather unlikable main character who does everything but what she is being paid well to do: house sit. I'll give book two a try before I decide if this series is worth it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Karren | 12/10/2012

    " A light read, with lovely character building. Set in the lovely Cotswolds, which the author describes delightfully "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Michael | 5/26/2012

    " This was a book that I wanted to like but found the plot rather weak and the protagonist was that that easy to belive in. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cathy | 10/14/2011

    " This is a pretty good book. The only reason I picked it up is because the Cotswold's is one of my favorite regions of England. It is beautiful there. As far as mysteries go - it is your typical English village mystery with some twists and turns. It's an easy read if that is what you are looking for. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Margaret | 6/11/2011

    " Unengaging & deeply implausible plot & unappealing heroine. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sally | 3/5/2011

    " This is a new series for me. I enjoyed the scenery, and the main character is interesting as well as a new kind of amateur sleuth. I will read the rest of these. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Rachel-anne | 12/30/2010

    " On Chapter 13 of 23. Its dry, a little interesting but I'm mostly just reading to see who the murder is. Not very entertaining. Very boring yet oddly creepy. Not very good storyline. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Auntie M | 2/6/2008

    " Another in Tope's Cotswolds series featuring house-sitter/widow Thea Osborne and her detective BF Phil.
    These give a real flavor of the area, and reflect her interest in canals, gardening, dogs and farm life, all within the conventions of a traditional murder mystery. "
