Murder Moves in (Black Dagger Crime) by Elizabeth Ferrars
A quaint English village was the last place anyone would expect to find murder. But that was exactly what confronted Robina Mellanby when she came to Burnham Priors, with no idea of the hate and jealousy which smothered the tiny village. From the day she moved terrible events threatened to destroy her ideal life. Somehow she had to protect her home, her husband and perhaps even her life!
Moving house is always an exasperating and stressful event. But Robina Mellanby, in her cheerful, slap-dash way, was perfectly able to cope with the ordinary exigencies of the move. Her real anxieties were more deep-rooted. To move so close to the home of Martha Birch, with whom her husband, Sam, had once been in love, might prove to be foolish. Martha’s husband certainly seemed uneasy about the situation. Adding to her worries, Robina hears about an old man who was nearly killed in a hit-and-run incident in the area. And when another victim dies in circumstances that point undoubtedly to murder, the life in the house suddenly turns into a nightmare. For in the aftermath of murder, Robina finds the whole structure of her existence threatened.
