Sophie’s plans for Valentine’s Day are scuppered by a body down a well

Sophie Sayers’ fourth adventure, Murder by the Book, begins at the start of the New Year, as she tries to help save the village pub by organising a spectacular Valentine’s Day party. But she hasn’t reckoned on an unexpected guest – a dead body down the ancient well behind the pub.

Join Sophie on a jaunt to Clevedon to meet Hector’s remarkable family – and discover why she doesn’t want him to meet hers. Follow reckless teenage sidekick Tommy, ever on the trail of red herrings. Discover elusive author Hermione Minty’s well-kept secrets. Root for lonely shopkeeper Carol, pursued by a secret admirer. And just hope the character dead in the well isn’t one of your favourites…
