Murder at Primrose Cottage (Flora Steele mystery) Merryn Allingham
It was the bookshop owner bit that drew me in first time around and this is my second read of the series. The
books are fine as a stand alone, always a good thing.
Flora is accompanying Jake on his writing expedition. He has to write a book (he has promised his publisher) and
Flora is there to make sure that research and helping him out to achieve this. She did not expect in rural Cornwall
in a most picturesque setting to find a body. The body of the owner of the cottage brutally murdered just a few hours
after they met.
Local detectives seem to be taking their own sweet time in linking the dots, finding suspects so Flora decides to
pursue her own investigation into the case. Both Flora and Jake did not imagine it would take them to the post WWII
years and a secret that had to be hidden at any cost - both of them were totally oblivious of what was happening but
when a series of accidents could not be written off as mere coincidence they do realise it is imperative to find out
who is behind the whole dangerous game.
This was a beautiful setting, very descriptive and though Flora and Jake are sometimes quite quirky it all dovetails
very neatly into a very readable story.
