A Cotswold Killing
I was able to finish off the month of April listening to A Cotswold Killing by Rebecca Tope. This series was new to me. From what I can find there are seven books written so far in this mystery series.
In the first book, we meet newly widowed Thea Osborne and her dog Hepzibah. Thea has taken her first job as a house-sitter. The house lies in the little village of Duntisbourne Abbot where she cares for the house, two dogs and small flock of sheep while a couple go off on a cruise. Her "neighbor" stops by immediately to say hello but ends up being found dead the following day. Thea is caught up in village life and discovering the secret that will lead to the killer.
I am going to continue with this series as I found the descriptions of the Cotswold and village life as good as the mystery story line within it.
