A lovely little spot for murder!
Not much happens in Biddle Rhyne, a quiet, picturesque village in the southwest of England. Especially if you don’t count the meat raffle on a Thursday night and the odd sheep escaping a field.
However, that’s all set to change when Julia Ford, a normal(ish) twenty-something who works in the local pub, stumbles upon a murder victim.
Upsetting, but not the end of the world. Particularly as the victim is Audrey White, the cantankerous owner of a nearby garden centre.
But when the police discover Julia had argued with the woman in the past, and her fingerprints are found on a death threat, she is accused of the crime, and her life is turned upside down.
Released on police bail and encumbered with an unfetching ankle tag, Julia will have to clear her own name.
Yet the murderer is intent that she takes the fall. Will Julia land on her feet?
MURDER ON A COUNTRY LANE is the first title in a series of cozy murder mysteries set in rural England. Look out for the second book, MURDER IN A SOMERSET VILLAGE, available late October.
