Even quaint and cozy English villages have a dark side . . .
Location scout and Jane Austen aficionado, Kate Sharp, is thrilled when the company she works for lands the job of finding locations for a new film adaptation of Pride and Prejudice, but then her boss fails to return from a scouting trip to England. Kate travels to England to salvage the company’s reputation.
Things go from bad to worse when Kate arrives in Nether Woodsmoor, a quaint village of golden stone cottages and rolling green hills, only to find no trace of her boss. Even the rumpled, easygoing local scout they consulted, Alex, doesn’t know where he might be.
Increasingly worried about her boss and with an antsy director waiting for updates about the preproduction details, Kate embarks on a search that includes a pub-crawl and cozy cottages as well as stately country manors. But with no sign of her boss, she begins to suspect that the picturesque village and beautiful countryside may not be as idyllic as they seem.

Death - English Countryside
Kate is sent off on the errand of finding her MIA boss. While following the clues as to where he may be she meets Alex, another location scout. Together they find that the sleepy little village has it all mystery, intrigue, scandal, murder and possibly romance.
Slow moving story , but enjoyable
This book was a little hard to read at times. It got too slow in places while explaining details and the thought processes of characters.
I enjoyed the ending, and the information on what everybody did next.
