American ex-pat Dorothy Martin and her British husband, retired chief constable Alan Nesbitt, are on holiday in the Cotswolds. While hiking and enjoying the beautiful scenery near the village of Broadway, they discover the body of a man at the bottom of a quarry. The police learn that the victim, a local farmer, was probably pushed over the edge, but they have no suspects. Dorothy's curiosity gets the better of her, and despite Alan's admonition to leave it alone, she begins asking questions. A young man whom they met before discovering the body makes her suspicious. (No shrewd sleuthing there, as he was covered with blood.) Quickly it becomes clear that the insular locals do not appreciate Dorothy and Alan asking questions, which, of course, makes our heroes more determined than ever to solve the crime. Dams sticks a little too close to formula here, but she does it with style, and British cozy fans will enjoy the idyllic Cotswolds setting. Copyright 2012 Booklist Reviews.

A Cotswolds vacation turns into a busman's holiday for Dorothy Martin and her husband, retired Chief Constable Alan Nesbitt (A Dark and Stormy Night), when they discover a corpse in a quarry and Dorothy suspects murder. A pleasing traditional cozy for Anglophiles. [See Prepub Alert, 8/2/11.]

Dams's mild 11th Dorothy Martin mystery (after 2011's A Dark and Stormy Night) takes American-born Dorothy and her British husband, retired chief constable Alan Nesbitt, to the Cotswolds, where they stumble on a body in an abandoned quarry. After reporting their grim find to the police, they're nearly run over by a disheveled, blood-splattered young man on a motorcycle, who apologizes, then vanishes. Convinced that this nervous gentleman is somehow connected with the body in the quarry, Dorothy begins to do what she does best: pose as a bemused American tourist looking for information. Her queries, punctuated by endless cups of tea, lead her to a women's shelter, isolated farmhouses, and eventually into grave danger. The lush Cotswolds scenery and the cast of intriguing locals will appeal to Anglophiles, but the mystery itself is vague, illogical, and far too bland—like a scone without its clotted cream. Agent: Kimberley Cameron. (Feb.)
