I enjoyed reading this novel, I was very intrigued to find out why someone would admit to a crime they didn’t commit.

#FalseAccusations #NetGalley " There is nothing to fear if you have nothing to hide … Summer of 1991 Nothing unusual ever happens in the sleepy village of Willowgrove.,everyone is shocked to their core when a local woman – Mrs Trevor – is murdered. Her daughter, Rosie confesses ..but Rosie has learning difficulties,and Flora Morgan –trained to help those who can’t represent themselves – is called in to assist. Flora has known Rosie for years.. Rosie wouldn’t hurt a fly. " Thanks to NetGalley for giving me this ARC by one of my favorite authors, Cora Harrison. It is a new series and perhaps the next one will be more of what I was expecting. I did like the last chapter which showed Flora and Ted, the local solicitor growing quite fond of each other. Not so sure that the two chapters prior to the last one made great sense to me. Flora's mysterious catastrophic illness leading to a long hospitalization, which ended in a series of hallucinations ,in which the murder investigation was wrapped up. Hmmm. Did Flora solve it or just think she solved it? It was a unique type of British crime novel, a "cozy" of sorts, and Cora Harrison is a very fine writer and seemed to pull it off pretty well. Try it! 3.5 stars rounded to 4.

I want to thank Netgalley website and Sapere book editions for this partnership except that I lost the book on my kindle I had to buy it. I was immediately attracted by the cover I think we see Flora walking on a path. Just below the title, a catchphrase says a lot about the story: "There is nothing to fear if you have nothing to hide" It all starts in the summer of 1991 when a woman is found dead, her daughter Rosie denounces herself. Flora will want to help him. She knows the girl and does not think it's her. She will do everything to prove her innocence. A book filled with suspense and twists with a captivating, moving story. The characters of Flora and Rosie are endearing. Can wait to read the book 2..
