Read an Excerpt

ROBERT GRIMSHAW OF GRIMSHAW and Taylor came round a teak desk that had been the height of furnishing fashion in the sixties. Bella thought that he had probably got stuck in the same time warp.
'Mrs Morleigh. So pleased to meet you. Do sit down. Tea? Or coffee?'
'Er -' said Bella.
'Tray of tea, please.' Robert Grimshaw addressed the secretary hovering by the door without looking at her and went back to his chair behind his desk. 'Now,' he said, opening a buff folder. 'I expect all this came as a bit of a shock to you?'
'You could say that.' Bella smiled, trying to relax her tense shoulders and sit more comfortably in the low slung chair.
'It surprised me, as well, and I knew Miss Alexander.' Robert Grimshaw surveyed Bella over his clasped hands. 'You have a look of her, you know.'
'I do?' Bella was obscurely pleased.
'Remarkably well preserved lady for her age. Ninety-two, she was, you know.'
'Ninety-two? My father would have been eighty-eight this year.'
'That would be Bertram, Miss Alexander's half brother.' Robert Grimshaw looked up as the door opened to admit the secretary struggling under the weight of a laden tea tray. Bella had to fight with herself not to get up and help while Robert Grimshaw merely watched benignly, tutting when a little tea trickled out of the spout.
'Will you be mother?' He leaned towards her archly. Bella tried to avoid the pale eyes which swept her lasciviously as, gritting her teeth, she levered herself to the edge of the chair and poured tea into two pale green cups.
'So.' Robert Grimshaw sat back in his chair and sipped his tea appreciatively, his expression as he looked over the rim of the cup still faintly salacious. Bella, unused to such admiration, felt uncomfortable.
'Let's fill you in a bit. How much do you know about your Aunt Maria?'
'Nothing at all. I didn't even know she existed.' Bella considered leaning back in her chair and decided against it as the tea in her cup threatened to transfer itself to her saucer.
'But you knew your grandmother?'
'Hardly. She died a year after I was born. My father didn't talk about her much.'
'I gather he left home very early and went to work in the city.' Robert Grimshaw referred to something in the buff folder.
'As soon as he could, I think.' Bella replaced her cup on the tray and edged surreptitiously back in to the chair. There was no beating it, she decided, as she collapsed backwards.

    Fantastic Series!

    I am just gobbling up this series! Read them in order - each book advances the characters and their relationships. The mysteries have many plot twists. Set in a quaint British village with a middle aged circle of friends who are involved in amature theater and stumble upon murder. Content: No sex, no gore, no violence, minimal cursing.
