Publisher's Summary

Following a string of disastrous house-sitting assignments, and with recent troubles in her personal life, Thea Osborne is understandably apprehensive about her latest commission: a wintry month in an isolated farmhouse with only an assortment of animals for company.
With the summer lushness of the Cotswolds turned icy grey, Thea spends her first few days exploring more of the surrounding area. She meets some of the mysterious local characters: the unappreciated au pair from Bulgaria and the elusive Kate from a neighbouring farm. But then the weather turns extreme, and so do events. When she stumbles across a man lying dead in a snow-filled field, Thea is once again at the heart of a mystery....

Heroine? Pathetic moaner more like

What would have made Fear in the Cotswolds better?

What a moaning wimp the main character is. Most of the book is taken up with 'Thea felt afraid', 'Thea was scared' and variations on this theme. If I ever met her I think I'd want to slap her.


What could Rebecca Tope have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Make the main character less of a pathetic wimp.


What about Caroline Lennon’s performance did you like?

Caroline is an excellent narrator but was struggling with this


You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

It was better than nothing on a long boring journey. It actually sent me to sleep


Any additional comments?

Poor story - awful characters
