When a woman's decomposed body is found in the aging barn of Oxford don Bridget Bennett's estate, Loretta knows her friend Bridget's shock is genuine. Unfortunately, the local constabulary are not so sure. And the tabloid press has a field day.
But when the police try to identify the dead woman and any possible connection to Bridget and her devoted husband, only Bridget seems alarmed at what might surface. Loretta tries to piece the puzzle together herself-with little success. Until a police blunder illuminates a dire suspicion she had all along...

I am not sure if I can recommend this to anyone really.
I found this book dated and disappointing. The author seemed to have an agenda about the inequalities that women face in the world a subject I am generally sympathetic to. However the author was heavy handed with her points and made me uncomfortable with the relationships between each character. I like a book that does not tie up the ends in a neat package. Her ending neither had a twist- it was predictable nor did it make me want more. She seemed to have run out of ideas on how to end it so just explained it all at the end. I felt cheated and actually a little angry that I wasted my time on this book.
