When an amateur sleuth’s pub colleague is bumped off, can she work out who called time at the bar?
Since getting her life back on track after being wrongly accused of murder, Julia Ford is finally realizing her ambition of opening a bookshop in the sleepy English village of Biddle Rhyne.
But, best laid plans and all that, things go awry when she stumbles upon the body of Barry, who worked alongside her in the local pub.
That another murder has occurred doesn’t take much deducing: the knife sticking out of his back strongly suggests it was no accident.
This is just the beginning of a series of strange occurrences including stolen diggers, giant haystacks, haunted playground swings, and human remains that drag Julia, kicking and screaming, into another serious(ish) investigation.
Juggling a nascent career in crime-solving with one in bookselling, Julia has a lot on her plate. Can she catch another killer, or was her first case beginner’s luck?
MURDER IN A SOMERSET VILLAGE is the second book in a series of humorous mysteries set in the West Country. Look out for MURDER ON A COUNTRY LANE, the first book. Both are available FREE with Kindle Unlimited and in paperback.
