A Cotswold Killing is the first book in the series and it finds recently widowed Thea Osborne arriving in Duntisbourne Abbots to house-sit for a local couple for three weeks. On her first night, she hears a piercing scream but concludes nowhere this serene and sleepy could be witness to a murder. But then a body shows up and Thea is soon untangling her way through a web of tragedy that engulfs this beautiful Gloucestershire town...
She also finds a body hanging from the rafters of a barn; discovers a body laid out like a sacrificial victim on Notgrove Barrow during Halloween season; visits Blockley and has to investigate a murder next door to her abode; and finds a skeleton at the roots of an old beech tree - with no concrete evidence of who the bones belong to.
