あらすじ・解説

Kate Palmer has relocated to Cornwall for a quiet life. Moving into picturesque Lavender Cottage with her sister, Angie, the little village of Lower Tinworthy should be the perfect place for their fresh new start. But within weeks of their arrival, there’s a death in the close-knit community....

A woman is found dead in the village hall, with her own kitchen knife next to the body, covered in blood. Kate, a practice nurse at the local medical center, begins to piece together the clues. Fenella was at the center of village activity, and there seem to be plenty of people who had reason to dislike her. But did any of them hate her enough to kill her? 

As Kate gets drawn into life in Lower Tinworthy, she begins a close friendship with Detective Inspector "Woody" Forrest, who is near to retiring - and determined to crack his last case. Together, they set about solving the mysterious crime. 

But when someone breaks into Kate’s home and leaves a warning note on her pillow, it becomes clear the murderer is prepared to do anything to keep their identity hidden.... Will Kate work out who’s responsible before she becomes the next victim? 

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

Kate is a different kind of sleuth: fun

I find I love the "cozy" series of books, and this new series is no different. Characters are unique and fun. The mystery is well-laid-out.

Even with 2 murders in the book, there is no horrible gore. The story is the characters' interactions and relationships.

Good fun, and a good read

Characters grated on my nerves

Weak story, characters not believable, especially main female character. Her stupidity hard to take. will probably return.

Brilliant New Series!

If you like Betty Rowlands, especially her Melissa Craig series, then you'll like this first Kate Palmer book.

Nice!

Enjoyed listening to it, but was left feeling like the end was rushed, and the author just wanted to finish it.
It's a shame as build up and middle parts were good and kept you interested, then fell flat towards the end.

It’s not Le Carré...

This is peak cosy crime. Excruciating at points because of the cheesy-ness of the writing BUT if you’re after something along the lines of the Cherringham Series this is the one. Light, inconsequential but thoroughly enjoyable. I hope it’s the first of many! Also read well.

Not so much utterly gripping as utterly annoying

If you like 'heroines' who are utterly stupid and poke their noses Into danger causing others to have to rescue them, you'll like this. It was too stupidly unbelievable for me.

Good story

Thought the story was good, wouldn’t go so far as to say it was utterly gripping. Didn’t enjoy listening to this narrator, far too plummy with a wooden delivery.

enjoyable

Enjoyed this book on audible. Good story with lots of suspects. Three stars because i didn't always find the main character likeable. Despite her being a nurse, I found her a little judgemental towards her sister ... but maybe that's a bit like real life.

Body in the village hall.

Love a good mystery. People think sleepy little villages are just that. Just look a little under the surface. Can't wait for the next in the Kate Palmer series. Well done.
