She buys her dream home.
Only days later the body of her ex is found in her new garden.
Maddie’s life as an estate agent in Oxfordshire is progressing. An old hippy contacts her about a gorgeous property but his former wife becomes her client, not him. Within days, his body is found on the property.
Would her client kill her ex, then leave his body in her own garden? Maddie doesn’t believe it, although the police do. But she does have questions. Did that shared hippy past have anything to do with the murder? And what about the murdered man’s more recent rather racy reputation?
Death at the Olde Woodley Grange is the fifth in the Madeleine Brooks Mystery series, an English village mystery, similar to those wonderful tales of amateur detectives written by Faith Martin and Frances Evesham. It’s as if Miss Marple meets Midsomer Murders, but with manors and cottages and country houses. They are a delight to read, with a warm and intelligent main character who leaves no stone unturned in her quest for justice.
