Publisher Comments:

"You're a librarian, not a detective," Catherine Penny's daughter reminds her. But Catherine, suddenly single in her sixties, finds it easy to slip into sleuthing mode when she leaves behind New York City and a failed marriage for a lovely 17th century cottage in the idyllic English village of Far Wychwood. andlt;BRandgt; But behind the town's quaint stone walls and lace-curtained windows lurk dark secrets and whispers of witchcraft. And when her crusty neighbor George Crocker dies in a tragic fire, Catherine alone suspects arson. Lacking hard evidence, the police pay little attention, and the villagers swear she must be mistaken. Catherine, however, is one feisty expatriate American who leaves no stone unturned when circumstances point to murder. She may not be Miss Marple--yet--but her ingenious knack for uncovering the truth is about to take Far Wychwood by storm!

Synopsis:

This first book in a new series introduces sixtysomething librarian Catherine Penny. When Catherine arrives at a 17th-century cottage in the English village of Far Wychwood, an apparent arson-murder arouses her sleuthing instincts. Original.

Synopsis:

The first novel in a new cozy mystery series--a woman looking to start a new life in an ancient English village finds a tight-knit community full of superstitions, rumors, and murder. When her husband leaves her for another woman, sixty-something American Catherine Penny begins her life anew in a charming seventeenth-century cottage in the small village of Far Wychwood, England. But it's not long before she discovers a darker side of the town when a dead body is found during the church renovation and Catherine's neighbor dies in a fire. Catherine knows a murderer is in their midst. If only she can get the local authorities to believe her.
