ARC AUDIO BOOK REVIEW: The Body at Rookery Barn by Kate Hardy
Widowed Georgina Drake has no regrets about moving to beautiful, sleepy Little Wenborough
in rural Norfolk. Until she opens the door to her guesthouse
and finds the dead body of her latest guest, irritable university professor Roland Garnett. And on top of that she’s
suddenly hearing a woman’s voice through her hearing aids.
Completely shaken by the discovery, Georgina can hardly believe it when the police conclude that Professor Garnett was poisoned, with a dinner delivered by Georgina herself. Is she about to be accused of murder? Georgina needs to pull herself together, try to ignore the distracting voice, and clear her name!
Asking around, it seems Roland Garnett offended half the village during his three-week stay and made unwelcome advances to the rest. But who was provoked enough to poison him? Georgina’s best lead is the deadly oleander found in Roland’s system. Her gardener, Young Tom, had access to the plant, but before she can talk to him Tom becomes the killer’s next victim.
As the crimes mount up, so do the clues, but does Georgina have what it takes to follow them to their conclusion? Even when her amateur sleuthing puts her next in the killer’s sights…?
