Publisher Description

A smart and enchanting postwar mystery that will appeal to fans of the Maisie Dobbs series by Jacqueline Winspear.

It is 1946, and war-weary young ex-intelligence officer Lane Winslow leaves London to look for a fresh start. When she finds herself happily settled into a sleepy hamlet in the interior of British Columbia surrounded by a suitably eclectic cast of small-town characters she feels like she may finally be able to put her past to rest.

But then a body is discovered, the victim of murder, and although she works alongside the town’s inspectors Darling and Ames to discover who might have possibly have motivation to kill, she unknowingly casts doubt on herself. As the investigation reveals facts that she has desperately tried to keep a secret, it threatens to pull her into a vortex of even greater losses than the ones she has already endured.

A clever postwar mystery that will appeal to fans the Maisie Dobbs series by Jacqueline Winspear or the Bess Crawford series by Charles Todd.

Andrea Ontario ,

A killer in King’s Cove

I really enjoyed this - it’s a light read, with interesting characters and a good mystery. I like Lane, the main character - and her unique spy role in WW2. The novel is a glimpse into recent Canadian/British history and the post-war society. If you live in BC, or have traveled through this part of BC, you’ll appreciate the setting. I’ll be reading the next 2 in the series.
