Big mysteries often come in small packages…
When curmudgeonly private detective Betty Grape visits a young friend, who is housesitting in a remote village in England for Christmas vacation, something seems out of place. Her friend, Catia, is visibly nervous. Is she worried about the young men in the decrepit caravan in next door’s back garden? Or is Catia involved in the disappearance of the homeowner’s invalid wife?
As an American, Betty discovers the locals are full of friendly gossip but taciturn about solid facts. Though they are determined to keep Betty from butting in on their territory, she blunders through the social morass of narrow-minded foreigners and their broad Dorset accents. Can she unravel the tight knots of this mystery? Will she find the perpetrator under thickly thatched roofs or behind floral chintz curtains?
About the Author
Madeline McEwen is an ex-pat from the UK, bi-focaled and technically challenged. She and her Significant Other manage their four offspring, one major and three minors, two autistic, two neurotypical, plus a time-share with Alzheimer's. In her free time, she walks the canines and chases the felines with her nose in a book and her fingers on a keyboard.
Tied Up with Strings is available at Amazon, GooglePlay, iBooks and Kobo. It is a short cozy mystery (only 85 pages) set in Devon, England during the holiday season. Betty Grape is an interesting main character and I hope we get to know more about her in the next book in A Serebral Seniors Mystery series. In honor of the Great Escapes Tied Up with Strings, the author is hosting a giveaway of British tea bags with brewing instructions. Please use the Rafflecopter form below or enter here.
