Publisher's Summary

When the calm of Saxford St Peter is disrupted by a deadly fire at the Old Mill, amateur sleuth Eve Mallow finds herself investigating a most surprising mystery!  

Everyone in Saxford St Peter is desperate to know more about Harry Tennant, the newcomer who owns the Old Mill. He usually keeps himself to himself, but he’s finally invited the villagers round for drinks, and Eve Mallow isn’t the only one looking forward to having some questions answered. 

But two days before the party, a terrible fire sweeps through the mill, and Harry is found dead. When Eve passes the burned remains of his beautiful house, she can’t resist the call to investigate. Especially when it turns out quiet, charming Harry was living a double life as the famous advice writer Pippa Longford. Eve has to wonder what revelations were contained in the letters he received...and whether one of them was worth killing for. 

Accompanied by her reliable dachshund sidekick Gus, Eve starts digging. She soon realises Harry was at the centre of a web of lives - and lies. There’s an uncle desperate to inherit, two women who thought they were his one and only, not to mention everyone who shared their darkest secrets with him. Was one of those strangers much closer to home than Harry knew? And can Eve untangle the truth before she finds herself face to face with a killer?

so repetitive and full of padding

I usually like Clare Chase cozy crime mysteries which help while away my dog walking activities and require no concentration or deep thought. This title, however, left me screaming in frustration. I cannot believe I wasted my £7.99 monthly subscription on this book. The whole story could have been done and dusted in one chapter. There was so much repetition, repetition, repetition and padding. How many times did the heroine have to repeat herself and go over the evidence or lack of it adinfinitim? The only character of any interest at all is the dachshund busily chasing snowflakes. I'm going to have to find a new author now to pass my time!

Loved it

I'm really enjoying this series. I love the way the characters have developed over the past few books.
There is a bit if humour along with the mystery which makes the story a lot of fun and entertaining. I like the way the author finishes each book with the obituary that Eve is working on at the time. It rounds off each book nicely.

Love Clare Chase

My first encounter with this author was her Tara Thorpe novels, I listened to all 3! So good! Then went onto her Eve Mallow series. All are top notch, really engaging, cosy mysteries with gripping suspense too. Kept me guessing until the end. So well written and the narrator is fabulous. I have 2 children and lots of studying to do and these novels are perfect for a bit of escapism at the end of the day. Cannot wait for April when the next book comes out. More please Clare!
