I have been a fan of this series since I read the first one. This is #5 in the series.
Alex Duggins is the Main Character. She lives in Folly – on – Weir and owns the local pub. She is in a relationship with the veterinarian, Tony Harrison. Alex’s Mother, Lily plays an important part in this story. The police are Detective Sergeant Bill Lamb and Detective Chief Inspector Dan O’Reilly.
Alex is returning home and sees a fire in a new construction area. Call for help and aid by a stranger by putting out the fire burning his clothes. This draws Alex and their friends into another major murder investigation. Another thread is with her Mother. Alex begins to learn about her background. There twists and turns will enthrall you until the surprise ends. I highly recommend this book and series.
