Best Murder in Show
The start of a gripping cozy murder mystery series by Debbie Young
"A cracking example of cozy crime!" Bestselling author Katie Fforde
When amateur writer Sophie Sayers inherits a cottage in the sleepy English Cotswold village of Wendlebury Barrow, she's hoping for a fresh start and a chance to finally pursue her dream of becoming a writer…
What she gets instead is a dead body found on a carnival float, an extraordinary assortment of suspects, and a murder to solve! But who might be to blame…?
Is the enigmatic bookseller Hector Munro all he seems?
And what about the over-friendly neighbour who brings her jars of honey? Not to mention the eccentric village shopkeeper, the village show committee, the writers' group and drama club, who are all suspiciously keen to welcome her to their midst.
Can Sophie find the courage to solve the case or could this new move be her biggest mistake?
Perfect for fans of M C Beaton's Agatha Raisin and Hamish Macbeth series.
