Jemima a police constable, moved to a quiet village seeking peace, quiet, no judgemental neighbours and wanting to live a quieter paced life.
She did not expect such nosy neighbours who would monitor her every move, describe all her actions on a neighbourhood Whatsapp group (which she has joined under
an assumed name!) and then get dragged into a murder which develops into murders just down the road.
Despite the murders, there is a lot of humour and plenty of action of every kind - from the free wheeling marital high jinks in a seemingly conservative
village to characters of every kind. It all adds to the interest and expands the story to cover so much of interest that your attention never wavers.
It was a light hearted cozy mystery, set in idyllic surroundings but with human elements of greed, bad decisions and very human mistakes.

From what I have read, a lot goes on in those quiet towns and hamlets in the UK!ReplyDelete
