GIVEAWAY ENDED
FOUND GUILTY AT FIVE
A Lois Meade Mystery
BY ANN PURSER

ABOUT THE BOOK:
She’s had her hands full sorting out both clues and clutter in the village of Long Farnden. But a mother’s work is never done, and Lois Meade is discovering detective work is both dirty and dangerous...

A wedding is always a happy occasion, even if Lois Meade must remind herself she isn’t losing a daughter, but gaining a policeman. Her new son-in-law is in the Tresham force—and happens to be Inspector Cowgill’s nephew—so now Lois has another link to the law.

But when her youngest son invites a mysterious woman, Akiko, as a guest, Lois wonders why she refuses to talk about her past. And when a thief waltzes off with the young woman’s cello, Lois enlists the inspector’s help to find the valuable instrument.

When Akiko herself goes missing, Lois discovers that this could be another in a string of murderous musical thefts. Now she must pull out all the stops to find the girl and protect her son...before the music stops permanently..

I want to know why after Akiko's instrument goes missing that she also goes missing. Love the cover with the little white dog .

The author lives in a village in England this sounds cozy to me. One of her past jobs was art gallery proprietor in a 400 year old barn. She gained insight for books by watching customers.

"Mornings are set aside for writing, and the rest of the day Ann spends walking the dog, retrieving bantams’ eggs from around the garden, gossiping and taking part in the life of the village." Nice life!
