Publisher's Summary

When an ambitious hotelier announces that he will be converting Springwood Hall into a smart country hotel, his plan is greeted with a chorus of local disapproval, led by the fearsome Hope Mapple, head of the Society for the Preservation of Historical Bamford. So the grand opening, to which all are invited, promises to be a lively affair, particularly since Hope is planning a disruptive protest "streak". However, Hope is to be unwittingly upstaged by the discovery of a recently murdered body on the premises. Chief Inspector Markby and his guest Meredith Mitchell's summer treat has suddenly become a horribly sobering crime scene.

Entertaining murder mystery

Anne Granger manages to produce a string of murder mysteries that are different enough to avoid becoming formulaic. She aims for a lighter, entertaining style of detective fiction that avoids the gritty reality of, say, Ian Rankin or Peter Robinson.

You need to concentrate while listening to the early chapters of this particular story because the main characters are introduced into the story relatively quickly and you need to remember who is whom. However, as usual for Anne Granger books, the personalities of the various characters are well-defined and one can follow the story.

Judith Boyd is an excellent reader and certainly helps to fix a picture of the different characters in ones mind. Important for an audio book.

Great read!

I always enjoy Ann Granger and this didn't disappoint. As ever a great mystery I love the various different misleading "clues" kept me glued to the book. Great read.
