  • A start of a journey

    This is a new series, the start of a journey. I loved the ex-policeman, Adam, as he is such a likeable, deep and meaningful character.He adds huge value to the plausibility of the story. I loved the dog even more! The leading lady, Imogen, is understandably more secretive and her circumstances such, that she spends much of her time anxious and worried so I found her harder to read, and a little less relatable. I believe she has potential to grow on the reader. I loved the threads the author created and the way she reached back in time, over many years. Then there was the highlighting of the public versus private personas. Are people never quite what they seem? Some evidence was real and some was engineered to purpose, to mislead, to direct attention! Indeed, quite intriguing! Hmm... The story really drew me in until around 80% of the way through when I felt it became a little fuzzy. But I did enjoy the true cozy mystery “reveal” at the end with the group gathering. I was on track but not quite there... I think the next one will build on this foundation and should prove a further worthwhile read. With thanks to #NetGalley, Boldwood Books and the author for my free advanced reader copy to review in exchange for an honest opinion.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Loved it!

    retired, law-enforcement, murder-investigation, cosy-mystery, England, dog, amateur-sleuth****** First her father died in a auto crash and inherited the hotel, then her estranged husband was poisoned, then she met the retired DCI who ran the nearby pub and needed help with the large dog who had crashed into his life (and he was a cat person). This is just the beginning! Imogen knows things she hasn't told her new friend or the police but just didn't know their importance but it really makes her look guilty. Especially when Adam twigs onto the fact that her dad's death was no accident. And then there is the cold case that never got much police attention. I loved this book and think that it marks the beginning of a fun new series! I requested and received a free ebook copy from Boldwood Books via NetGalley. Thank you!!

  • great cozy read

    Imogen comes home for her father's funeral and finds her estranged husband's dead in the orangery. She meets Paul a retired police officer and owner of the pub across the street. They team up to clear her name. A cozy mystery that unfolds a little reminiscent of an Agatha Christie novel. A nice summer read.

  • Typical country English crime.

    If you like Faith Martin and/or Joy Ellis you will probably enjoy this book. Characters are interesting as is the story line.
