Here is the ‘blurb’ synopsis from Fête Fatale;
“A summer fête in rural Cheshire, organised by the Women’s Institute of Mossleigh, holds the promise of an idyllic day out in the best British tradition. Everyone is enjoying the festivities until a beloved neighbour is found dead among the bins and refuse of the village hall which saddens the holiday mood. However, it is only when Beth Williams and her twin brother Detective Chief Inspector Benedict James join forces that it becomes evident that all isn’t as innocent as it at first seemed.
Beth is a piano tutor and a member of the local WI. As such she has her finger on the pulse of the undercurrents of the village and is ideally placed to find all of the seemingly inconsequential domestic details which could give her brother the insight he needs. Together, if they each pool their own particular fields of expertise, they’re bound to get to the bottom of the business. Sordid crime might prevail amid the pastries and preserves for a time but, in the end, the culprit will get their just desserts.”
Fête Fatale by Sharon Bill is the first cosy mystery novel in ‘The Beth Williams Mysteries Series’.
