The second novel in a new British cosy crime series from million-copy-selling author Leigh Russell
Emily has settled in the picturesque village of Ashton Mead, where she lives with her puppy, Poppy. Life is finally going well for Emily. She has a cottage of her own, a job she likes and friends. Then she stumbles on the body of a woman who apparently drowned in the river.
The other villagers suspect foul play and are quick to blame Richard, Emily's next-door neighbor and a newcomer to the village. Emily finds it hard to believe her friendly neighbor could be a cold-hearted murderer. When she meets his attractive son, Adam, her feelings become more complicated. Determined to find out the truth behind the death in the village, Emily travels to London to track down the man with whom Richard's wife was having an affair.
Unfortunately for Emily, her visit does not go as planned. Instead of helping clear Richard's name, she finds her own life is in danger...

What's not to love about Poppy. She is the adorable heroine in a cosy mystery where her owner once again finds herself inadvertently caught up in a murder. And if you read book 1, it's a bit close to home again. The tale has a lovely bucolic setting and Poppy's antics are so well described, they will leave you with a smile on your face. Roll on the next tale.
Thanks to Netgalley for the ARC to review.
