A Simple Country Mystery: A 1940s Cotswolds Mystery
Death comes unexpectedly ...
With the suspicious death of a young woman in the village, Helen Lightholder finds herself once again delving into the menacing shadows that lurk beneath the pleasant surface of sunny Bookminster. Her search for suspects and motives leads her to a prisoner of war camp on the outskirts of the village, but could the real danger lie even closer to home?
Meanwhile, two very different men vie for Helen's heart, but neither can take the place of the husband she lost. As a series of break-ins leave her feeling unsafe in her home and shop, Helen has to decide whether or not to continue in the "quiet" life she has found in the country.
