Out Comes the Evil: A Cotswold murder mystery by Stella Cameron

She's excited because she has a big announcement to make that will change their relationship.  She never expected to die before she could share it...

Severn House and Net Galley let me read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published December 1st.

Alex and Tony make the grim discovery after the widow has been missing for several days.  They are told to stay out of it but that's hard to do when you found the body. 

Ms. Cameron gives us some real odd characters to populate her book.  Some of the rich are horrible.  Some folks just like to make trouble.  And someone somewhere is a murderer.  The list of suspects is large.  Who would benefit by her death?  Who hated her bad enough to murder her?

This a well formed mystery with lots of investigative work on all sides.  One more person dies before the mystery is solved and another is beaten within an inch of her life.  The people involved were friends with the widow, but that was all.

I had no idea who the killer was until close to the end.  The most ironic thing is that she didn't die for typical reasons; she was killed for love.

The best part is that Alex and Tony are falling in love.  They make a nice couple.  I don't think they are through solving mysteries either.  I even have a few I'd suggest as victims.  There are plenty of nasty people in this series.
