Burying Bad News (A Much Winchmoor Mystery #3)
By Paula Williams
About The Book:
One severed head, two warring neighbours – and a cold-blooded killer stalks Much Winchmoor. There’s the murder made to look like a tragic accident, and a missing husband. Could he be victim number two?
The tiny Somerset village is fast gaining a reputation as the murder capital of the West Country, and once again, reporter/barmaid/dog walker Kat Latcham finds herself reluctantly dragged into the investigation.
Things are looking bad for Ed Fuller, the husband of one of Kat’s oldest friends. Kat’s convinced he’s innocent – but she’s been wrong before.
Has Kat come across her biggest challenge yet?
Fans of Janet Evanovich could well enjoy this “funky, modern day nosey detective” transported to the English countryside. The third Much Winchmoor mystery is, as always, spiked with humour and sprinkled with a touch of romance.
Another great little mystery from Paula Williams!!!!
There’s a lot going on in Much Winchmoor these days. Another murder has come to town, and it all starts with a severed head, and two neighbors who cannot stand the sight of one another! Before she knows it, our heroine, Kat, is in the center of it again!!!!
Kat is just trying to stay afloat with all her odd jobs…a reporter, working in a bar, and walking the village dogs. When a new owner takes over the paper where she works, she soon finds herself worrying about that job. She is always in the crosshairs of her boss at the bar too!
When a murder is committed, her good friend’s husband, Ed, becomes the prime suspect. All her other problems take a back seat as she tries to prove his innocence.
All the same delightful and not so delightful characters return. As a side issue, Kat also has to figure out why so many of her mother’s clients are cancelling and going to another hairdresser! As with all the other books in the series, this one is a fun little romp. If you like your mysteries with humor and a bit of romance, this series is a winner!!!!
Meet the Author:
Paula Williams is living her dream. She’s written all her life – her earliest efforts involved blackmailing her unfortunate younger brothers into appearing in her various plays and pageants. But it’s only in recent years, when she turned her attention to writing short stories and serials for women’s magazines that she discovered, to her surprise, that people with better judgement than her brothers actually liked what she wrote and were prepared to pay her for it and she has sold over 400 short stories and serials both in the UK and overseas.
Now, she writes every day in a lovely, book-lined study in her home in Somerset, UK, where she lives with her husband and a handsome but not always obedient rescue Dalmatian called Duke. She still writes for magazines but now writes novels as well. She is currently writing the Much Winchmoor series of murder mysteries, set in a village not unlike the one she lives in – although as far as she knows, none of her friends and neighbours have murderous tendencies.
A member of both the Romantic Novelists’ Association and the Crime Writers’ Association, her novels often feature a murder or two, and are always spiked with humour and sprinkled with a touch of romance.
She also writes a monthly column, Ideas Store, for the writers’ magazine, Writers’ Forum. And she blogs about her books, other people’s books and, quite often, Dalmatians at paulawilliamswriter.wordpress.com.
She gives talks on writing at writing festivals and to organised groups and has appeared several times of local radio. In fact, she’ll talk about writing to anyone who’ll stand still long enough to listen.
But, as with all dreams, she worries that one day she’s going to wake up and find she still has to bully her brothers into reading ‘the play what she wrote’.
