On a glorious summer afternoon Eve Mallow pays her first visit to the local village fair. But amidst the booths, stalls, tables and tents lurks something darker, and a mysterious fall draws her into a new investigation…
Here’s the blurb:
The charity fair at Seagrave Hall is a key date in the Saxford St Peter calendar – a chance for the villagers to nose around the house and grounds and cross paths with the rich and famous.
New resident Eve is particularly excited by this year’s special guest: the explorer Verity Nye, who is engaged to the heir to the Hall. Eve loves Verity’s determination, and she can’t wait to meet her.
But when they talk, Verity hints that she has something troubling on her mind. So after the festive mood is tragically interrupted by Verity’s fall from a third-floor window, Eve can’t be sure that it’s an appalling accident. Especially when one small boy claims he saw someone behind her…
Soon Eve finds herself tasked with writing Verity’s obituary. As she dusts off her notebook and begins her interviews alongside her trusted dachshund sidekick Gus she realises she has a fine array of suspects before her. Could it be a corrupt charity manager, the distraught fiancé, or jealous cousin Cora? And can Eve find out before her questions cause the killer to turn on her?
Mystery at Seagrave Hall is available in Kindle, paperback and Audible formats. (You can listen to a sample of the audio version here.) It can be read as a standalone mystery, but if you’d like to catch up with the series, here are the links:
