“An absolutely charming book… An adventure well worth your time… You’re sure to enjoy it.”
In Death at Bishop’s Keep, Kathryn Ardleigh captured the interest of amateur detective Sir Charles Sheridan as they solved their first case together.
Now the death of a local constable and the disappearance of a child have Kate and Charles once again on the trail of deadly greed and criminal mischief. They team up with the shy, uncertain (but tactful and deeply perceptive) Miss Beatrix Potter to discover who killed the constable in Mr. McGregor’s garden and kidnapped the constable’s daughter.
Helping with this urgent task or blundering clumsily into the way are Miss Potter’s animal companions, Mrs. Tiggywinkle and Jemima Puddleduck, as well as the beastly Mr. Tod and Mr. Brock.
Death at Gallows Green is the novel that prompted Susan’s eight-book series, The Cottage Tales of Beatrix Potter. “I fell in love with Beatrix,” she says. “I couldn’t bear to say goodbye.”
