Recently divorced, mother-of -two, fiftyish Eve Mallow, is about to go from obituary writing to amateur super-sleuthing…she just doesn’t know it yet!
Eve Mallow accepts an assignment to write an obituary/article on a recently deceased, world famous musician. Along with her dog Gus, Eve settles in for a short stay in a most charming cottage in the beautifully descripted, seaside village of Saxford St. Peter, and begins researching out details on the deceased.
What began as a memorial article, quickly turns into a mystery when the police declare the famous musician’s death a murder.
Wanting answers as much as information, Eve begins by questioning the tight community’s locals. Inquisitive by nature, Eve slowly gathers information and clues. Digging for facts comes with the job and Eve is quite good at sniffing out specifics.
So much so, that she crosses the line from being safe, to being in danger.
Clare Chase delivers a well-plotted story line, beautiful narrative of the setting, and a very promising lead in Eve.
A thoroughly enjoyable cozy-mystery.
Thank you to NetGalley and Bookouture for the read of Clare Chase’s, Mystery on Hidden Lane (An Eve Mallow Mystery Book 1).
