Murder in an English Village

Jessica Ellicott

Praise for Murder in an English Village

You’ll love this delightful new series about two ladies of a certain age who refuse to let Society’s expectations hold them back from bringing a killer to justice. The very British Edwina and the too American Beryl are a wonderfully mismatched pair who will keep you turning pages until they solve the crime.

—Victoria Thompson, bestselling author of Murder in the Bowery

Ellicott’s debut delivers the traditional trappings of the cozy mystery.

—Kirkus Reviews

Absolutely delightful. Readers will fall in love with this intrepid new pair of sleuths as they sniff out the secrets hiding just beneath the surface of even the most unassuming English village.

—Anna Lee Huber, bestselling author of the Lady Darby Mysteries

Well-drawn women of a certain age, plot twists, and details of wartime and postwar Britain distinguish this historical cozy, which will appeal to fans of Frances Brody’s Kate Shackleton and Kerry Greenwood’s Phryne Fisher.


You’ll fall in love with genteel Edwina and gregarious Beryl, a quirky pair of sleuths who pool their respective talents and doggedly get the job done. Great fun from start to finish, murder has never been so adorable!

—Alyssa Maxwell, author of A Pinch of Poison

With its strong sense of place and time in post–World War I England, this will be welcomed by fans of Frances Brody’s Kate Shackleton mysteries.
