Bunburry - Murder at the Mousetrap
Bunburry - Murder at the Mousetrap: A Cosy Mystery Series. Episode 1 | Helena Marchmont
4 posts | 4 read | 10 to read
Miss Marple meets Oscar Wilde in this new series of cosy mysteries set in the picturesque Cotswolds village of Bunburry. In "Murder at the Mousetrap," the first Bunburry book, fudge-making and quaffing real ale in the local pub are matched by an undercurrent of passion, jealousy, hatred and murder - laced with a welcome dose of humour. Alfie McAlister has retreated from London to the peace and quiet of the country to recover from a personal tragedy. But an accidental death - which may have been no accident - reveals that the heart of England is far from the tranquil backwater he imagined. After arriving in Bunburry, he is co-opted as an amateur detective by Liz and Marge, two elderly ladies who were best friends with Alfie's late Aunt Augusta. And it is not long before their investigations take an even more dramatic turn ... Helena Marchmont is a pseudonym of Olga Wojtas, who was born and brought up in Edinburgh. She was encouraged to write by an inspirational English teacher, Iona M. Cameron. Olga won a Scottish Book Trust New Writers Award in 2015, has had more than 30 short stories published in magazines and anthologies and recently published her first mystery Miss Blaine's Prefect and the Golden Samovar.

I really enjoyed this cozy mystery! Alfie inherits a cottage in the deceptively sleepy village of Bunburry in the English countryside. Whilst making friends he soon stumbles on tension amidst the local theater group as they strive to put on an Agatha Christie play.

Three short cozy mysteries with well drawn, eclectic village characters. Londoner Alfie McAlister continues what he had thought was to be a peaceful village life in the Cotswolds, but murder keeps rearing its head. Entertaining, short cozy listening.
