Folly: A British murder mystery set in the Cotswolds by Stella Cameron
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Alex Duggins has returned to her home village after the disaster of her marriage and a breakdown. She's the new owner of the pub where her mother has worked for years and she's kept the former owners on as managers. On her way to the pub one morning she discovers the body of a murdered man in the woods. The tragedy sets off a chain of events which eventually results in a long-held village secret being uncovered, putting several people at serious risk.
I liked the book but felt that it was a bit too rushed in the story telling. It was hard to feel very connected to most of the characters and the plot needed to be fleshed out a bit more. But it did keep my attention, and I thought the author did a good job creating the setting.
