Saltwater Cottages, Saxford’s new arts and crafts centre, is as pretty as a picture. But when murder makes a blot on the landscape, Eve Mallow must draw on all her detective skills to solve the case!
When beautiful Saltwater Cottages opens, offering art courses in charming surroundings, Eve Mallow and best friend Viv sign up straight away. Viv’s brother Simon is in charge, and they all want him to succeed.
But from the start, Eve finds herself in a sticky situation. Famous guest artist Nena Field is a complete nightmare, painting everyone in a bad light. So when Eve finds her body in Blind-Eye Wood, there’s no shortage of suspects. But who could have hated her enough to take her life? Was it the curiously over-qualified cook, the secretive manager, or the chatty receptionist, mysteriously missing at the time of the murder?
Determined to find the killer and save Simon’s business, Eve sets to work sketching out a theory of the crime. Nena was working on a secret painting when she died, which has now vanished without a trace, and Eve is convinced it holds the answers she needs. But when all her best suspects seem to have alibis, Eve is forced back to the drawing board.
Then Eve has her own brush with death, and realizes she must be on the right track. But what did she see or hear at Saltwater Cottages, and can she find the killer before they paint her out of the picture?
An utterly delightful English cozy mystery, perfect for fans of Faith Martin, J.R. Ellis, and Agatha Christie.

Is there a Mystery at Saltwater Cottages?
This story was very interesting, and I am happy to see more of Viv, who I love and Gavin. We need more of them as we, as well as Simon they are all great characters, and Viv and Simon have great banter as sister and brother.
Eilidh Beaton as awesome as the narrator, she is wonderful to listen too.
I like Eve, but by now she must be suffering with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) from all the close calls she has had. And that is where I have a bit of an issue with this book series. I have for a while now. It has become so formulaic that I am started to get a bit bored of the story structure.
Clare Chase is a fantastic writer, but this really needs to stop, it’s always the same final act, it’s getting very repetitive. As well-as Eve has had her life in mortal danger over 10 times!
She should be taking self-defence classes as well-as the fact that you would be suffering from Anxiety and PTSD, she should be seeing a therapist.
The conclusion of this book is lovely and I am hoping it will bring a new perspective and structure to the books moving forward.
