Sophie Sayers' plans for a romantic Valentine's night at the village pub didn't include someone being shoved to their death down its ancient well.
But as no-one witnessed the crime, will it ever be solved in this close-knit English village where everyone knows each other - and half of them are also related?
It will be solved if Sophie Sayers has anything to do with it. But can she stop eager teenage sidekick Tommy Crowe unmasking her boyfriend Hector's secret identity in the process, causing chaos to his precarious bookshop business?
A whole shoal of red herrings will keep you guessing as tempers flare and old feuds catch fire in the latest laugh-out-loud Sophie Sayers Village mystery about love, loyalty and family ties, set in the heart of the idyllic English Cotswolds. Idyllic unless you happen to be a murder victim...
Enjoy the company of all your old friends from Sophie's earlier adventures, while meeting entertaining newcomers who will keep the others on their toes.

About the Author
I write warm, witty, feel-good contemporary fiction inspired by life in the English village where I have lived for nearly thirty years. My work has been shortlisted for the UK Bookbrunch Selfies Awards 2020, given for the best independently-published fiction in the UK.
My Sophie Sayers Village Mystery series begins with Best Murder in Show and, when complete, will run the course of a calendar year in the life of a classic English Cotswold village. The sixth, Murder Your Darlings, was published in the spring of 2020, and I am now writing the final book in the series, Murder, Lost and Found. A bonus eighth book is also in the pipeline!
I'm also writing a new romantic comedy mystery series set in the staffroom of an English girls' boarding school. St Bride's. The first book, Secrets at St Bride's, was published in August 2019, and the second, Stranger at St Bride's, was published in July 2020. There will be six books in this series following the course of an academic year.
If you'd like me to let you know when I'm about to publish a new book, why not join my free Readers' Club? You'll find details on my author website. You'll also receive a free short ebook, The Pride of Peacocks, featuring Sophie Sayers and friends and introducing St Bride's School for Girls.
