Before long, things take a darker turn.
A man breaks out of prison, leaving the villagers rattled.
What are they afraid of?
Marian isn’t one for idle gossip. But she can’t ignore the telltale signs that someone has been sneaking into her garden at night.
And then there’s the gruff stranger she’s seen hanging round next door. Who is he? And what does he want with the farmer’s wife?
It’s up to Marian find out.
But in a village full of secrets, the truth can be hard to find.
A brand-new cozy mystery that will delight fans of Agatha Christie, Richard Osman, Margaret Mayhew, Janice Hallett, Jeanne M. Dams, L.J. Ross, Faith Martin and Midsomer Murders.
