Publisher's Summary

An utterly gripping English cozy mystery

A quaint cottage in a pretty Victorian terrace with a neatly tended garden stands quiet and still...but inside the bedroom a woman lies dead upon the floor.

Sukey Reynolds is enjoying a quiet period at work, taking time to get her garden in hand, catch up on some cooking, and spend time with her son. Murder is the last thing on her mind....

But when she is called to the charming Ivy House to photograph the dead body of a young woman, Sukey feels compelled to drop everything and do all she can to shed light on this baffling mystery. And whilst collecting evidence at a nearby hotel which had a break-in around the same time as the murder, she starts to wonder if the two cases might be linked. 

The manager just happened to let slip that one of her guests went white as a sheet after reading about the death and disappeared shortly afterwards. The very same guest whose room was broken into.... Sukey has a shrewd suspicion about who this man might be, and she fears he too could be in danger. 

Although she voices her theories, her detective colleagues are in no mood for any more of her amateur sleuthing. Sukey realises that if she wants to pursue her lead, she’ll have to do it alone. When Sukey agrees to a secret meeting by a remote river, has she made a terrible mistake? Has the killer lured her into the woods and into a trap? 

If you love novels by Agatha Christie, Faith Martin, or Joy Ellis, then this addictive mystery from the best-selling queen of cozy crime will have you hooked!

This book was previously published as Dirty Work.

Love this entire series !

This deserves it's 5 star rating. The plot is interesting. The characters are easy to like. The pace of the storyline is not too long or too short. So, it holds your attention. The narrator is so enjoyable to listen to, with her smooth mellow voice tone. I recommend this entire series to anyone who wants a great cozy mystery read.
