Thank you to the author and publisher for the copy of this book via netgalley.

I do love a good mystery story and this was certainly that - add in the fact that its set in my very own stomping grounds and it made for a terrific read.

Alex Duggins has moved back to the sleepy town of Folly-on-Weir in the Cotswolds due to suffering a tragedy, but after stumbling over a murder victim in the countryside she sets off a chain of events that will put her life in very real danger. With its roots set firmly in the past, Alex must uncover the facts in order to understand why someone wants her out of the way..but just who can she trust?

I very much enjoyed this - it had a touch of the old school about it, those gentle rambling mysteries that came from Agatha Christie and Victoria Holt in my youth and are now coming from a whole new generation of crime writers...but with a modern twist. I love that Alex is not in any way affiliated with the police, nor does she do a job that would normally bring her into contact with them or give her any reason for them to consult her. She is at the heart of this story though...and to find out why she will have to dig deep and discover the truth for herself.

The supporting cast of characters are all very good - I particularly liked the enigmatic Detective O'Reilly who keeps trying to keep Alex out of trouble and away from the danger zone with little success, and her old school friend Tony, who himself has a past, who tries to do the same. They mystery element is complicated enough to hold interest and the final resolution is satisfying.

All in all a terrific read and I shall look forward to the next Alex Duggins mystery.

Happy Reading Folks!
