Staff Reviews


I can’t imagine a pleasanter read then this mystery. Arlen has a wonderful way with words and brings alive the day to day life of a small village in England (I am so ready to move to Little Buffenden!) and its unique inhabitants, each brimming with character. Especially Poppy, who is intelligent but down to earth; passionate but sensible. And I adore her stalwart dog, Bessie.  However, there is still plenty of tension with not only the war, but two murders. I was sad to leave this book when it was done and have yet to pick up another!

Description


Summer 1942. The world has been at war for three long and desperate years. In the remote English village of Little Buffenden, Poppy Redfern's family house and farmland have been requisitioned by the War Office as a new airfield for the American Air Force. As the village's Air Raid Warden, Poppy spends her nights patrolling the village as she tries to ease her neighbors' fears about the "Friendly Invasion" and what it means to their quiet way of life. When two popular young women who were dating American servicemen are found strangled, Poppy quickly realizes that her little town has been divided by murder. The mistrust and suspicion of their new American partners in war threatens to tear Little Buffenden apart. Poppy decides to start her own investigation with the help of a charismatic American pilot, and she soon unearths some chilling secrets and long-held grudges. She will have no choice but to lay a trap for a killer so perilously close to home, she might very well become the next victim...
