Murder in Steeple Martin

The first book in Lesley Cookman’s bestselling series featuring amateur sleuth Libby Sarjeant.

Artist and ex-actress Libby Sarjeant is busy directing a play for the opening of a new theatre in her village when one of her cast is found brutally murdered.

But is she too close to Peter’s family to be able to recognise the murderer?
