A natural undertaker agrees to bury a woman in the middle of a field in the Cotswolds. In A Grave in the Cotswolds, Rebecca Tope tells the tale of this small village and the uproar caused by the burial. Afterwards a local councilman is murdered and the undertaker fits the bill for the murdered.
This is a very quaint story about a busybody, house sitter Thea Osborne, and the undertaker Drew Slocombe, team up to find the real murdered before Drew is arrested.
This was a quick, easy, whimsical read. No overwhelming social injustices as play, just an old fashioned murder.
