Publisher's Summary

Join Flora Steele - bookshop owner, bicycle-rider, daydreamer, and amateur detective - in her quest to solve a brand-new murder mystery!

Cornwall, 1956: When Flora Steele sets off for a peaceful vacation with crime writer Jack Carrington in his little red Austin, the last thing she expects to find is a body at their pretty rental cottage!

Shocked by the discovery, inquisitive Flora joins forces with handsome Jack to find out how the poor man came to such an untimely end in the overgrown orchard of Primrose Cottage. They discover Roger Gifford was a man with plenty of friends, and the villagers seem devastated by his sudden death....

So why was he murdered? And who has blood on their hands? His estranged wife, Beatrice, his wayward younger brother, Lionel, or the suspicious newcomer, Mercy Dearlove?

The baffling case gets even more complicated when a second man is found dead, and a set of puzzling clues leads them to an intriguing wartime mystery, connected to Jack’s estranged father.

As old secrets emerge and Jack receives an unsettling letter, it seems the crime writer is in danger of a fate befitting his fictional characters. 

Will Flora be able to crack the case and save Jack? Or will this be one murder too many for Flora Steele?

Great story- a little long

Perfect and cozy British murder mystery.

Great story - a little long winded and a lot of interest in post world war life.

Cornish escapade for Flora

I really am enjoying Flora and Jack’s adventures, with twists and turns aplenty, along with books, cakes, cups of tea and delicious food. It’s very comforting listening. Wonderful narration too.

Not for me

Found the narrators staccato reading annoying and the story implausable. Had a job to finish it.

Wonderful

How wonderful that these stories have this strong, independent & honest heroine as it’s lead & set in an era where there were no modern conveniences…she has to rely on good old fashioned sleuthing. Totally loved this book.
