Even quaint and cozy English villages have a dark side . . .

Location scout and Jane Austen aficionado, Kate Sharp, is thrilled when the company she works for lands the job of finding locations for a new film adaptation of Pride and Prejudice, but then her boss fails to return from a scouting trip to England. Kate travels to England to salvage the company’s reputation. 

Things go from bad to worse when Kate arrives in Nether Woodsmoor, a quaint village of golden stone cottages and rolling green hills, only to find no trace of her boss. Even the rumpled, easygoing local scout they consulted, Alex, doesn’t know where he might be. 

Increasingly worried about her boss and with an antsy director waiting for updates about the preproduction details, Kate embarks on a search that includes a pub-crawl and cozy cottages as well as stately country manors. But with no sign of her boss, she begins to suspect that the picturesque village and beautiful countryside may not be as idyllic as they seem.

    Sara Rosett writes an excellent cozy mystery with Death in the English Countryside. My favorite part of any book are the descriptions of the houses, old buildings, stone bridges, and of course the countryside. With Sara Rosett’s descriptions I am there, feeling the rain and looking at the beautiful golden stone bridge.
