Another Rebecca Tope novel that shows a charming English countryside’s murderous side. A precursor to A Grave in the Cotswolds, we learn a little more about the Slocombe family and how Karen is injured. They live in a small world that is trying to live simply. Farmers Markets, non-consumerists, non-GMO’s, simple burials are all topics normal in their world. Until a bomb goes off at a big grocery store. Is it the naturalists against the big corporation, or is their dissent in the happy little bubble that the Slocombe’s and their friends live in.
A easy, quick read allowed me another glimpse into a quaint world tainted by murder.
