WHAT READERS ARE SAYING ABOUT THE VILLAGE MYSTERIES
“A thoroughly enjoyable British village cozy mystery that is the first in a series. I'm looking forward to reading the rest.” Sherri
“I was enthralled from the first to the last page.” Lizzie
“I enjoyed this, and look forward to visiting Frog End again.” Laura
“There is nothing like a light British village mystery for when you are under the weather.” Amy
“If you enjoy Miss Marple or the Midsomer Murders type of story then you'll like this.” Carole
At the grand old age of 55, the Colonel had been put out to grass by the British Army. In the same year, his beloved wife, Laura, died after a long illness. He found himself facing a bleak and lonely future. There were the children, of course, but they were grown up and had busy lives of their own.
One summer, years before, he and Laura spent their leave in England, touring the West Country. They stopped at a village in Dorset called Frog End which had a spit-and-sawdust pub called the Dog and Duck. Laura had fallen in love with a stone cottage seen across the village green. She had admired the thatched roof and the pink roses round the door. Years later, after her death, the Colonel had revisited the same village alone and seen Laura’s dream cottage had aged badly and that it was up for sale. Against his better judgement, he bought it.
The cottage was called Pond Cottage and the Colonel soon discovered that he had made a big mistake. The two-hundred-year-old building had deathwatch beetle, rising damp, a falling roof, rot and decay throughout. There was no heating and the wiring was a dangerous disgrace. Logs for an open fire were kept in a tin bath in the scullery and the nettle-infested lavatory was housed outside in a jungle. There was no sign of any pond.
But there were compensations: a view over the beautiful village green, clusters of other stone cottages, a Norman church built on Saxon foundations, a graveyard of ancient tombs leaning at perilous angles. And, of course, the Dog and Duck.

An intriguing mystery that may or may not be a murder? The Colonel, on an extended visit to a friend, discovers a body floating in a pond. 'Did he fall or was he pushed', that is the question? The story has a rather long introduction - five chapters! My favourite character is the lady at the Tudor re-enactment gathering. A good chuckle. Persevere, it is worth it. More questions than answers!
story about the airmen over and over felt that it was just to fill space, I have no doubt about the Bravery of the Bomber Crews whatsoever
but felt this was a story that did nothing for those crews, or indeed anything else. I hope book 5 is an improvement and not worse.
