“Twisty, engaging, and thoroughly unexpected ... a must-read for any mystery lover. Featuring a unique cast of characters and a village full of dirty little secrets, this book delivers a fresh take on the English cozy.”
Jo Jones has always had a little trouble fitting in. As an #ActuallyAutistic, hyperlexic book editor and divorced New Yorker transplanted into the English countryside, Jo doesn’t know what stands out more: her Americanisms or her autism. But when a painting vanishes and the body of the grounds-keeper turns up on her rug (with three bullets in his back), Jo finds herself in potential danger. She’s also a potential suspect! With the aid of a Welsh antiques dealer, the morose local detective, and the Irish innkeeper’s wife, Jo embarks on a mission to clear herself of blame and find the missing painting, unearthing a slew of secrets about the town—and herself—along the way. And she’ll have to do it all before the killer strikes again…
