Death seems to follow her: two murders, three decades apart…
In 1990, within the deceptively peaceful woods of her Sussex neighborhood, Mia witnesses the brutal murder of her mother and wakes up in a shallow grave. A man confesses to the murder and later dies in prison, but Mia never comes to terms with her mother’s death.
After another brush with tragedy in 2021, Mia and her boyfriend Rich move from London to a small Spanish village where they can begin a new life. At first, Val Verde seems to be everything they could wish for. But when a body is found in the olive grove outside of town, they realize that their would-be safe haven harbors a terrible secret. Will they discover the deadly root of evil before it’s too late?
Breathlessly paced with an atmospheric setting, Murder Grove is a twisty psychological thriller from the author of Five Strangers.
About the Author: E. V. Adamson is a pseudonym of award-winning journalist and author Andrew Wilson. He is the author of four acclaimed biographies, including one on Patricia Highsmith, and four Agatha Christie novels, which feature the Queen of Crime as a series sleuth.

Thank you to Netgalley and the publisher for this early arc of Murder Grove by E.V. Adamson.
In this story we are following Mia & Rich, they are just a regular couple of 30 year olds who decide to leave their lives in pursuit of a new adventure in Spain. It seemed like the perfect place to escape, until it wasn’t. There is a body that has been discovered in a nearby olive grove, and oddly enough it seems very similar to something that happened to one of our main POV’s past.
I live for stories told in multiple POV’s, as I feel like it makes the book fly by faster and I enjoy seeing how each character is thinking. I also enjoyed the setting, We as the readers, really felt like we were inside of this small Spanish village. I also found the atmosphere to be quite spooky at times. Overall, this was a very fun read.
