When Meredith Mitchell agreed to stay with her actress cousin, Eve, in the run up to Eve's daughter's wedding, she anticipated a degree of drama. But she can hardly have expected it to include murder, blackmail, and unrequited love. Or to involve a certain Chief Inspector Markby, a middle-aged divorcee.As material witness to the only case of murder the Cotswold village of Westerfield has ever seen, Meredith soon becomes involved in the case and with helping Chief Inspector Markby. Meredith is a career diplomat and soon needs her considerable skills when steering a path between her duty to the police and loyalty to her cousin's family.

Instantly forgettable

I only finished this last week and I had to return to the book details to remind myself what it was about. Not a good sign.

I suppose if you're after a read that doesn't challenge you AT ALL then this is fit for purpose. Nevertheless, this doesn't make it any better than a 25p charity shop offering, though.

The narrator does an creditable job with relatively sub-standard material.

Just not very nice

I found this actually pretty horrid, it has some nasty bits with dead animals in it that I wished I'd known about before I brought it.
