Summary

DI Hillary Greene is called out to attend a suspicious death at Three Oaks Farm in the picturesque village of Steeple Barton. 

The large farmhouse is filled with music and revellers, but when she steps into the farm’s cowshed, Hillary finds a dead bride. Dressed in a sumptuous white wedding gown, the young, beautiful redhead has clearly been strangled. But not everything is what it seems, and the victim turns out to be at the centre of a web of jealousy and intrigue in the close-knit village. Many of the villagers have a motive for murdering her, but they’re not giving up their secrets easily. 

Can Hillary discover the real reason for this brutal crime and cope with the spiralling revelations about her dead ex-husband?

Good story

I've been enjoying other books in this series. I thought that this was really good too. I liked the narrator's voice, and her reading most of the time, however it was jarring when she pronounced well-known terms letter by letter instead of the way we used to hearing them. Why don't the publishers provide narrators with with pronunciation of words which are not totally common or obvious? e.g. SOCO is normally read as 'sockoh' and Magdalene in Oxford as 'Mordlin'

Competent but dull

Good to listen to while gardening or, perhaps, sleeping. The narrator plods doggedly onwards, sometimes seeming dangerously close to running out of puff before the end of the sentence, and not paying too much attention to the pronunciation of difficult words. A leaden book with a well-matched narrator.

Abandoned due to overlong sentences ...

The story and central character are intriguing and I'd like to know who/why dunnit but not enough to bother to finish this book ... weird pronunciation by the narrator + amazingly long, boring, endlessly descriptive sentences put me off. This author should try to emulate Agatha Christie's short, pithy sentences.
