Book 1  -  Murder at the House on the Hill  

Once Upon a Crime...

Nancy Hunter and her grandmother Jane Hunter run the Dedley Endings Bookshop, selling crime, thriller and mystery books, in a small, quiet Cotswold village where nothing ever happens...

That is, until the wealthy and reclusive Roth family open up their mansion for the first time in thirty years, inviting the people of Dedley End to a lavish engagement party.

While everyone is thrilled to finally look around the mansion on the hill, the festivities are quickly cut short when beautiful Lucy, recently married to young Harry Roth, is found dead after being pushed over the first-floor balustrade.

But who among the guests could have been capable of her murder - and why?

Nancy and Jane decide to investigate - after all, not only do they own a crime themed bookshop, they were also both named after famous literary detectives - but soon wonder if they've taken on more than they can handle. Especially when it seems the killer has worked out that they're hot on their heels...

 

Book 2  -  Murder at the Summer Fete  

Six months after Jane Hunter and her granddaughter Nancy solved the murder of Lucy Roth, things are finally getting back to normal in The Dedley End village.

Having decided to plan a summer fete, they invite guest speaker, Thomas Green, a high-profile crime author back to his home village. But the other villagers aren’t as welcoming as Nancy and Jane...

When a body is discovered at the fete, killed in the exact same manner as the victim in Thomas’ book, the detective duo must band together again to solve the brutal tragedy…

 

Book 3 - Murder at the Village Church  

Nancy Hunter is on a mission to find her mother. Samantha Hunter walked out on her family and left the village of Dedley End over twenty years ago. For two decades, Nancy has thought her mother was dead…until she discovered she was spotted at a party at a country estate five months ago.

As Nancy delves into the mystery in her own family, the village of Dedley End is rocked by the appearance of Sebastian Holmes, recently released from a long stretch in prison for his part in a jewellery robbery in London. And when someone is found murdered in the local church, it seems that there may be more danger hiding in their sleepy Cotswold village…

Nancy and her grandmother Jane, Dedley End’s resident amateur sleuths and owners of a crime fiction bookshop, set about trying to solve the mystery of just who could be the killer, and how they managed a murder in a locked room – but what they don’t know is that finding the murderer might just bring them closer to finding Samantha. But does she want to be found? And what made her hide away for so many years?
