Publisher's Summary

Thea Osborne sets off to Frampton Mansell with confidence. Despite her first disastrous house-sitting venture, which drew her into a murder investigation, Thea, and her spaniel Hepzibah, are sure of a wonderful stay at the relaxed country estate of the Philipses. But it seems that she’s jinxed. Busying herself with her duties, she finds a body hanging from the rafters of one of the barns. Detective Superintendent Phil Hollis oversees the subsequent investigation and is more than a little surprised to find Thea once again at the scene. As the days go by, they find themselves working together more closely – although Thea, at times, is more of a hindrance than a help.

Pretty good story.

I like the set up - the main character house sitting in various villages where murders are discovered. In response to another reviewer, I think it's typical for police detectives to have several different villages in their jurisdiction.

I'm not crazy about the narrator. She has a nice, smooth, soft voice but I'm not sure she's really English. She was OK, though.

Musical interludes totally not needed

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Good story and well read but it was spoiled by musical interludes at where I believe there would have been chapter breaks.

light hearted murder mystery

If you enjoy light hearted murder mysteries set in beautiful surroundings then the Thea Osborne books are brilliant. I have read all of the books and think that the audible series definitely do them justice. They are easy to listen to especially when I am out walking the dog. It is definitely worth listening to the books in order so you have background to Thea's story.
