Summary

Westleham Village 1947.

It’s the Westleham village show, and with the war finally over, everyone is looking forward to a pleasant day.

But newcomer Martha Miller doesn’t share the excitement. Because since her husband, Stan, left for work one day and never returned, Martha has been treated as somewhat of an outsider in Westleham. The village gossip is that Martha must be to blame....

Martha hopes she can win her fellow villagers over with her delicious homemade plum gin. But as glasses of the tangy tipple are quaffed, disaster strikes! Chairwoman of the village show, Alice Warren, slumps to the ground - poisoned!

As fingers of suspicion again point Martha’s way, she’s determined to prove her innocence and find the real culprit. And she’s ably helped by the new vicar, Luke Walker.

But who would kill Alice and why? And will Luke and Martha discover who is behind the poisoning before it's too late?

Find out in a brand-new Martha Miller mystery from best-selling author Catherine Coles.

Poor narration, poor quality audio.

Struggling with this due to narrators voice! Hard to decipher what she is reading at times. If only these readers would use a normal voice and tone, NOT try to imitate dialects of regional accents. It spoils the story for me as I can't understand what she's saying at times! No need to sound "posh", most of us are not!!😠 Audio tone was so bad at times it was difficult to hear it or understand what was being said! Try re recording this audio book please.

Really enjoyed this

A lovely murder mystery set just after the war, giving a sense of village life. The storyline, characters and plot, is well written capturing those times. I loved the way the characters where introduced into the storyline and how the Mysteries and murder were solved. The story was very well told by the narrator who kept me interested.
