あらすじ・解説

Practice nurse Kate Palmer is ready for some peace and quiet in her little Cornish village, but there’s soon to be a murder on her doorstep....

Kate’s retirement in Cornwall hasn’t quite gone as planned - Lavender Cottage is in need of substantial repairs, and her sister Angie’s fondness for gin does rather stretch the purse strings.

So when Kate is asked to do some nursing at the luxury retirement flats in Seaview Grange, she jumps at the chance. The old Victorian house has stunning views of the sea, and the retirees are a peaceful bunch. That is, until Edina Martinelli, a glamorous ex-opera singer, is found poisoned in her home.

Edina’s death is ruled an overdose by Digoxin, the same medication she had been on for years. But Kate is sure the woman she met was not suicidal, and with the reputation of her practice on the line, she decides to do some digging. Luckily she’s got the newly retired Detective Inspector Woody Forrest to help her....

It’s not long before Kate discovers evidence of foul play, and there’s no shortage of suspects. Was it the besotted vicar? The ill-tempered stepson? Or perhaps Edina’s neighbor finally had enough of her constant warbling. It seems everyone had a motive, but who among them had the stomach for murder? And will they kill again?

If you love murder mysteries by Agatha Christie, Faith Martin, or Joy Ellis, then this novel will have you listening late into the night!

Reader can't do local accents!

I don't like the reader's accents, the Scottish attempt is appalling. Much better to just read the story in a normal English accent unless he/she happens to be Scottish, Cornish or whatever! This narrator is trying to be posh English, bad Scottish, bad Cornish and should remember this. She does not have the talent for mimicry.

Pronounciation off-putting

These stories are a pleasant way to pass the time although the characters are not completely likeable.
I like Jane McDowell's narration as a rule but in this recording her constant pronunciation of Digoxin as Dye- Gokzin when the main character is a nurse was intensely irrritating!

Shame about Woody and Kate

I enjoyed the first one of this series but unfortunately the two main characters are so unbelievably dislikeable that it’s hard to listen to. Woody is a patronising shmoozong idiot and Kate is deceitful, selfish and moronic.
I have had to turn it off a few times out of irritation.
