Summary

A winding path leads past the beautiful begonias to an overhanging oak tree. But underneath, a deadly secret is hiding....

Beth Haldane cradles a warm cup of tea and admires the view of crisp, red autumn leaves scattering the lawn of her little garden. But the peace and quiet is interrupted when her loyal pet pooch sniffs out something suspicious. At the bottom of a freshly dug hole is a bone: and it looks worryingly human.

Even for a mystery-loving amateur sleuth like Beth, the discovery of a body beneath her own lawn is a little too close for comfort. But when the police insist that she must know something about the remains, digging up the truth herself is Beth’s only option.

With gossip flying all around Dulwich Village, Beth has her work cut out to find the culprit. Could a local cat-sitter, with keys to every home on the street, have been involved? Is her ex-actress neighbor a little too good at acting innocent? And was a whispered secret at a dinner party meant to point Beth in the right direction?

Scouring her garden for missed clues, when Beth discovers a shining silver engraved coin, she’s certain it will lead to the victim’s identity. But the arrival of a threatening anonymous message sends chills down her spine.... Can Beth find a killer hiding in plain sight, before she’s the one pushing up daisies?

A deliciously cozy and gripping murder mystery, perfect for fans of Agatha Christie, T.E. Kinsey, and The Thursday Murder Club.

This was really good, I had a lot of fun with this

I love Imogen Church! She is an amazing narrator, her performance is wonderful and so entertaining. I personally feel a lot of other narrators I've heard could learn a lot from Imogen's reading, you can tell she in enjoying the book. This whole book series has been great because the stories are good, but the narrator is so important that they are likable and charismatic! This book is great, I'm not going to lie there is a sub story that is just odd and it felt very out of character and unnecessary, but this could be just me? The main story is good and the characters are great I'd keep an eye on Harry's second in command, I don't trust her. The primary layout of the story was interesting and refreshing and strangely intriguing. You'll hear what I mean. Look forward to hearing the next book.
