A Dangerous Time
An escape to the country turns into a holiday nightmare in this cozy murder mystery
Having left the police force, Kate George is looking forward to a long, relaxing retreat in a village in the north east of England.
Unfortunately, her dream of a quiet countryside break is dashed when local teacher, Dawn Fraser, is found dead in the garden shed of Kate’s cottage.
Not only that, Kate suffers a fall in the local shop and is knocked unconscious. Having received a mixed welcome, it is only her new neighbour, Sam, who shows her any real human kindness.
Despite having wanted to put a life fighting crime behind her, Kate finds it hard not to get involved in the case. And as she does so, she discovers that the small town is full of secrets, each more worrying than the next. She’ll have to work out whom, if anyone, she can trust.
Will she be accepted? Will she want to stay on? And will the killer be found before they strike again?
If you like traditional murder mysteries with a cozy feel, then A DANGEROUS TIME is for you. Packed with northern wit and brimming with intrigue, it will keep you guessing to the end.
