Thea Osborne relishes the thought of spending some quality time with DI Phil Hollis, while she helps him clear out his late aunt's cottage in the Cotswolds. Even meeting his childhood acquaintance, the eccentric Ariadne, cannot detract from Thea's happiness, but the bad luck that plagues her and her beloved spaniel Hepzibah is never far away. When Ariadne discovers a body laid out like a sacrificial victim on Notgrove Barrow, Thea and Ariadne are thrown together as they try to uncover the events that led to the fatality, in a village that has more than its share of secrets.

This book is so sensitive to the lost, bereaved and searching.
The writer is touching on topics that need solace. Dying, grief,
not belonging, the front everyone erects; all are amazingly stripped away in the
English country side. I have read all her books and "A grave in the cotswolds" ,exams the new wish for a burial without embalming or massive waste of money.

I checked the reviewers comments on Amazon and goodreads for this book. Quite a few people did not like this story. Well I am glad I did not pay attention to those comments since I rather liked the book. Any murder mystery that takes place in the Cotswolds or any BBC masterpiece series I have always enjoyed. This is the first book that I've read in the series and look forward to reading the rest.
