Publisher's Summary

As undertaker Drew Slocombe drove to Greta Simmonds’ burial in Broad Campden, deep in the heart of the Cotswolds, thoughts of his troubles at home and at work played on his mind. The last thing he was worried about was becoming a murder suspect. Thea Osbourne becomes Drew’s unlikely friend and defender when the council worker opposing the burial is found dead just minutes from Thea’s latest house-sitting assignment: the Cotswold home of the late Mrs Simmonds. As they come to know more about the inhabitants of Broad Campden, Drew and Thea begin to unearth the secrets, conflicts and tensions that simmer below the surface of village life, together playing amateur detective to find the killer, and to clear Drew’s name.

Another hit for Ms. Tope!

Where does A Grave in the Cotswolds rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This book ranks as one of the top 50. I love certain series with Anne Perry's William Monk being the top-top. Having said that, I have been captivated by Rebecca Tope's works just as I have with Anne Perry's. These authors write in the manner that I listen to their stories over and over.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

Sort of. I liked the introduction of the undertaker and the fact that this story had him as the main character.

Which character – as performed by Caroline Lennon – was your favorite?

The undertake - hands down.

Any additional comments?

Thank you, Ms. Tope for a fresh character and keeping the Cotswolds the major setting.

A Grave in the Cotswolds.

Although I enjoyed this book I found it slightly off-putting because the story teller was a man and it was read by a woman. It was, however, well read.
