Publisher Description

In a quiet little village, mourners gather for a church funeral. But some of the tears flowing are fake, and Beth Haldane suspects foul play....

On a rainy afternoon, Beth Haldane accompanies her elderly mother, Wendy, to the funeral of her boyfriend and local councilor Len. But as they gather in the church, Beth can’t help but notice how many women are there who look just like her mother.

As the service begins, it soon becomes clear that all of the women thought they were Len’s special someone–and one of them even claims to be his distraught wife. Wendy suspects foul play and immediately asks Beth to investigate.

As Beth begins to speak to the women she has to ask, was one of Len’s many disgruntled girlfriends out for revenge? Why was Len borrowing money from the ladies he romanced? And why did his work for the local council seem so suspicious?

Then, Len’s secretary, Bella, is found dead among the dahlias in the churchyard. Beth starts to suspect Len was involved in something far more dangerous than she’d assumed, but what did Bella know about his business that led to her unfortunate end?

With the village rumor mill in full swing, fingers start to point at Wendy. After all, distraught Wendy is telling everyone who lends her an ear that Len was murdered– and she saw Len the very evening he was found dead. The clock is ticking for Beth to clear her mother’s name before it’s too late!

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