OLD SOLDIERS NEVER DIE a cozy murder mystery (Village Mysteries Book 1) (English Edition) Kindle-editie
Meet the Colonel (hardly anyone calls him Hugh). He moves to a quiet country cottage in Dorset, which he’d once visited with his late wife.
He finds it easy to slip into local society and decides that Frog End’s upcoming annual fete will be the start of his mission to be a pillar of the community.
But when Lady Swynford is found dead on the night of the fete, it becomes clear that Frog End has a darker side. And as Inspector Squibb investigates the case, the Colonel finds himself more involved than he could possibly have imagined.
DISCOVER FROG END, A BEAUTIFUL ENGLISH VILLAGE WITH SOME DARK SECRETS
Perfect for fans of Faith Martin, Agatha Christie and Stella Cameron.
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 enjoyed this, and look forward to visiting Frog End again.” Laura
“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.

Beste recensies uit andere landen
It's a decent enough little story, nothing too difficult to work out, and the writing is halfway decent, although there could be better use of vocabulary (too many repetitions) and a lot more suspense. For a 99p book it was a reasonably fun way to pass a couple of hours.
Please can't you write just one more?
