Escape to the village of Little Challham. Belinda Penshurst loves her little village, with the quiet streets and quaint pubs. Belinda lives in Callham Castle, and when local pub owner Tipper is found dead in his cellar, Belinda wastes no time, and she is on the case to investigate. When retired detective Harry Powell, who is new to town, is pulled into a murder investigation he wonders just how quiet his new town really is. And when a dognapper is following dog walkers, it makes this book both exciting and unputdownable. This story was absolutely amazing and I loved plot twists and turns, it kept me guessing to the very last page. This is the first book I’ve read by this author, it definitely will not be the last. I absolutely loved it, it was a great plot. I loved everything about it. I really liked the introduction of a new sleuth Belinda Penshurst. She is a wonderful addition to the cozy mystery genre.
Thank you Lisa Cutts for such a wonderful cozy mystery. I thoroughly enjoyed this story, and I’m so happy to know that it is only the beginning of a series. I can’t wait to read more from this author. This story is fantastic and I highly recommend this book.

Meet Belinda Penshurst. Castle owner, dog lover… crime solver?
Belinda Penshurst loves her home village Little Challham, with its shady lanes, two pubs and weekly market, and she’s determined to keep it peaceful. She may live in Challham Castle but she knows almost everything that goes on under her nose. So when irritable pub landlord Tipper is found dead in his cellar, she’s perfectly placed to investigate.
Retired detective Harry Powell moved to Little Challham for a quiet life. He didn’t expect to be dragged into a murder investigation. But the police don’t seem half as enthusiastic as Belinda about the case, and there are strange things happening in the village. Particularly the number of dogs that have disappeared lately…
Is there a dognapper snaffling schnauzers and luring away Labradors? Is Belinda barking mad to be worried that her brother Marcus was arguing with Tipper on the day he died? Belinda and Harry track down the suspects: the rival landlord, the outraged barmaid, the mysterious man in the black car following dogwalkers around. But are the dogged detectives running out of time to sniff out the killer, before he starts hounding them?
