A Body in Seaview Grange
Nurse Kate Palmer is ready for some peace and quiet in her little Cornish village but instead there’s murder on her doorstep…
When amateur sleuth Kate Palmer is asked to do some nursing at Seaview Grange, a Victorian building with beautiful views of the coast, the request comes at just the right time. Her new home, Lavender Cottage, needs substantial repairs and her sister Angie’s fondness for gin does rather stretch the purse-strings. All is going well until Edina Martinelli, a glamorous ex-opera singer, is found poisoned in one of the luxury apartments.
Poor Edina’s death is ruled an overdose but Kate is sure the flamboyant woman she met was not suicidal. With the reputation of her practice on the line, Kate decides to do some digging. Luckily, she’s got the newly retired Detective Inspector Woody Forrest to help her…
It’s not long before Kate discovers evidence of foul play, and there’s no shortage of suspects. Was it the besotted vicar? The ill-tempered stepson? Or perhaps Edina’s neighbour finally had enough of her constant warbling?
It seems everyone had a motive, but who amongst them had the stomach for murder? And can Kate solve the baffling crime before they kill again?
If you love murder mysteries with quirky characters, warm wit and twisty plots then this page-turning novel will have you reading late into the night! Perfect for fans of Agatha Christie, Faith Martin and Joy Ellis.
