And I thought...
I received Death in the English Country free from the author after I signed up to receive her newsletters.
This was a fun fast paced sit on the edge of your seat Cozy
I was kept guessing who was the villain. Mainly because a secondary plot line develops in the story. The book begins when Kate goes to England to search for Kevin her boss who has gone missing while scouting a location for a movie. Upon arriving in England Kate is sad to find Kevin has disappeared leaving his luggage in the inn where he stayed. Kate wastes no time in recruiting the local scout that Kevin had been working with to help her retrace Kevin's activities.
When Kate and Alex accidentally discover a car that has gone over a bridge and is completely underwater they are shocked to discover that it is Kevin's car. The mystery thickens when Kevin's body isn't in the car but is found further down stream. The pair begin to have more questions than answers.
The police realize that there was no accident and begins to investigate 'everyone' including Kate.
As Kate is told to 'not leave town' by the formidable Detective Inspector Quimby. she decides to do a little investigating on her own with Alex's help.
Along with Kate, Alex, Detective Inspector Quimby there are some fun and interesting characters that has the reader wondering just 'who dun it'?
The story ends with the mystery solved and Kate returning home.
The reader might be left a little disappointed but not for long.
Kate barely arrives home when she receives a phone call from Alex offering her a job helping him scout locations for a documentary.
Maybe there a little romance simmering.
I enjoyed reading Death in the English Countryside. I look forward to reading book two and picking up with Kate and Alex.
