A Harvest Murder Frances Evesham 5*#Review @BoldwoodBooks @FrancesEvesham #AHamHillMurderMystery @rararesources #cozymystery #murdermystery #revenge #BoldwoodBloggers #BlogTour #love #family #AHarvestMurder #BookReview #Somerset

One unexplained disappearance is strange, but two are sinister.

In Lower Hembrow, an idyllic village nestled beneath Ham Hill in Somerset, the villagers are preparing to enjoy the autumn traditions of the rural English countryside until Joe Trevillion, acurmudgeonly local farmer and the father of six children vanishes.

When Adam Hennessy, the ex-detective proprietor of The Plough, the village’s popular Inn, investigates, he finds ominous undercurrents beneath apparently harmless rumour and gossip.

Meanwhile, a vicious campaign of vindictiveness forces Adam and his three amateur sleuth friendsto dig deep into the secret lives of their neighbours to expose the source of a cruel vendetta and prevent another death.

As they uncover the disturbing truth, the friends learn they must also lay their own past lives to rest before they can hope to make their dreams for the future come true.

I received a copy of this book from the publisher.

My Thoughts…

It takes a few chapters to get back into the Ham Hill Village vibe, but once you do, this is an entertaining cosy crime novel with a vibrant village setting, great characters and a twisty plot. Adam, the retired police detective .and Steph’s relationship is working well, but Imogen feels her tentative love affair with Dan, the artist, is floundering. Dan is the story’s focus, and the reader learns about his past life. The village’s community spirit draws the amateur sleuths’ attention to a missing farmer, and the story soon escalates into something sinister.

I like the dynamic between the amateur sleuths and how they support each other, the village location and the twisty plot that builds into a suspenseful story.
