A Killing in the Cotswolds

Coming in 2020 from Cozy Cat Books

Travel writer Emily Swift is delighted to be in England writing about old fashioned Cotswold villages with their honey-colored buildings, historic castles, and posh manor houses. But when a politician is found dead with snakes slithering about his body, Emily and her fiancé Jack are drawn into a murder investigation.

Emily’s childhood friend, now married to a British lord, begs her to uncover the truth and save an innocent woman from prosecution. Clues lead from Chipping Campden to Stratford upon Avon, to prehistoric Avebury as Emily tracks down the suspects —an actor with a talent for deception, a schoolmaster forced to retire after a boy died under mysterious circumstances, a tour guide at Warwick Castle who believes her husband was killed, and an entrepreneur whose business is revenge.

Emily must use all her reporter’s skills to solve the mystery. By the time she realizes who the killer is, Emily is in deadly danger.
