What you need to know before your trail

The highly eligible son of Miss Seeton’s old friends Sir George and Lady Colveden has wed the daughter of a French count. Miss Seeton lends her talents to the village scheme to create a quilted Bayeux Tapestry of local history, inspired by the wedding. But the tapestry takes on a whole new meaning as the sketches join to form a very unique picture of a village past and present revealing buried Nazi secrets, and links to the mysterious death of a diplomat and to a South American dictator .

Travel Guide

Hamilton Crane’s Guide to Plummergen/Appledore

To help me keep things straight I’ve sketched out a map of “my” Plummergen to remind myself where people live and where they shop. It doesn’t show every single house in the village, but it may help you orient yourselves when you read my stories. If the stories before mine don’t quite fit it, then we must assume someone was using a different map!

Booktrailer Review

Susan: @thebooktrailer

I think Agatha Raisin might have an older relative living in Appledore – this is a  woman who has appeared in 21 previous novels but even if you’ve never met her before, you’ll feel as if you know her. She’s a funny, quirky woman who meddles in everything an nothing and there’s an awful lot of secrets to meddle in here! It might seem like a  nice village a picturesque village that you would want to visit but don’t  let the bunting and the tapestry fool you.

There’s a lot of digging around for secrets here – if you though there were secrets buried in St Mary Mead or Midsummer then you need to visit Appledore. A bit crowded to say the least!

There’s something very heartwarming and deliciously delightful about an old woman who stops at nothing to solve a mystery the police can’t solve and Miss Seeton has this in spades. She draws some psychic sketches and sees things no one else can see.

As for the other characters, the Nuts (yes this is their name) are as you might imagine and the plot also has moments they could put their name to, nothing disappoints in the laugh out loud, gasp in a pantomime flourish.

A light read that’s a lot of fun
