A tranquil Spanish village by the sea is the perfect place for Primavera Blackstone to raise her ten-year-old, Tom, son of the late lamented Oz, especially once they are joined by Oz's nephew, pro golfer Jonny Sinclair. But when her best friend, Shirley, introduces her new man, Patterson Cowling, he seems to be a magnet for trouble. A casual thief tries to pick his pocket and is found a few days later with his face blown off. A bloody coincidence? Or does Patterson Cowling have a past to protect?
As the body count rises, and Primavera becomes den mother to an extended golfing family, it seems that homicide is par for the course, and that hazards lie in wait for everyone.

Ms. Maisey 's perfect accent makes this superbly written murder mystery interesting and uncommon. you will delight in the highly charged personality of the female protagonist as she goes about solving case in her singular manner.
I am a great fan of QJ, particularly Oz and Primavera. This book is read with great feeling and expression that makes it very difficult to put down. On more than one occasion i have sat in the car at the end of a journey just to see what happens next.
The way this story has been written it does not matter if you have not read the earlier books. The family characters are re-introduced with just enough biography to identify who they are and the relationships.
I can't recommend this strongly enough. Brilliant, enjoyable and please write and record some more soon.
"QJ comes up trumps again"
Another super read with Primavera getting into hot water again. The only drawback is that the reader, Julie Maisey, is not in the same league as the previous reader, Hilary Neville. Sorry, Julie!
