Summer has come to Windermere, where Persimmon "Simmy" Brown runs her own florist shop. But the shop is struggling for money, so a contract to provide floral displays for a hotel in Hawkshead couldn't have arrived at a better moment. However Simmy's association with the hotel soon turns sinister when she finds a body in the lake. To make matters worse, her friend, Ben Harkness, is now missing and thought to be kidnapped. With many suspicious characters bustling in and out of the hotel, while simultaneously trying to cope with her father's encroaching dementia, solving the puzzle seems a gruelling challenge, but Simmy is compelled to uncover the truth....

An interesting diversion

Another enjoyable murder mystery set in the Lakes. The focus of the Hawkeshead Hostage was on the new character Bonnie and Simmie took second place in the story. This was an interesting diversion to the usual plot. Good, light listening.

This series has run its course

What was most disappointing about Rebecca Tope’s story?

The characters have nothing new to offer I am afraid. I have all the books in the series and this will be the last I purchase.

What about Julia Franklin’s performance did you like?

As in all of the Hawkshead series the narration is first class.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

I was disappointed by this book.
