MY BOOK BEGINNING



How long had it taken to change a life forever?

-- Cold by Stella Cameron.  This is the first book in a new series of English mysteries featuring Alex Duggins. I haven't read Cameron's other books, but this one looks right up my alley. I can't wait to dive into it.

PUBLISHER'S DESCRIPTION

You can't outrun the past... ...and tripping over a frosted corpse is a complication that could destroy Alex Duggins' attempt to restart her life. The discovery of a murder victim threatens to unearth some old secrets, including her own. As the tiny town of Folly-on-Weir braces for a chilling winter and snow blankets Britain's Cotswold Hills, a killer faces a deadline. A terrible crime was believed to be safely hidden, but time and conscience can wear on a secret. The clock ticks and with the police breathing down her neck, Alex knows she's at the top of the suspect list. Desperate to clear her name and find the real murderer she begins to peel back the layers of deception that have long-concealed one of the town's darkest secrets. But time is also running out for a killer who has nothing left to lose. What's one more murder? Someone intends that Alex will be the next snow-covered body found in the beautiful hills above the town.

I haven't read any of Stella Cameron's books either, but this one sounds like a good one. The opening sentence made me want to read more.

You had me at English mystery. Cotswolds sealed the deal. Two of my favorite series are M.C. Beaton's Agatha Raisin mysteries, which are set in the Cotswolds, and Alan Bradley's Flavia de Luce series, set in a small English village.

Cold sounds like a fine mystery, set in an English village too... and in winter. Lots to like there.
