Journal Entry 4 by wingeponine38wing at Winchester, Massachusetts USA on Saturday, February 27, 2016
Well-constructed mystery set in and around a British countryside pub. Owner Josie Welford is a complicated character, as she was once married to a gangster who ended up in prison. It was his ill-gotten money that enabled Josie to start a new life and open the place. The detective who put him away now appears in the village in another role: as food-safety inspector. A little of everything in this book! Recommended.

[The dust jacket says "recipes included" but I didn't see any...]

Josie Welford desperately hopes for a fresh start. Widow to one of Britain's most wanted criminals, she begins a new venture as the licensee of the local pub in Kings Duncombe, and soon becomes a thriving member of the community. That is until Inspector Nick Thomas, the man who put her husband in jail, appears on the scene. Now an inspector for the Food Standards Agency, he advises Josie to change from her local suppliers. How could Josie ever have foreseen the terrible consequences of this simple decision? Very soon she finds herself an outcast once more, ostracised by her erstwhile friendly neighbours. Even her employees are being warned off. Her hopes of a new life in tatters, she hears that the local vet has disappeared. Could the two things be connected? And why does everybody act as though they have a secret to hide? Bringing a reluctant Nick on to the case, Josie prepares to investigate.

Thanks for sending to me from: Bookstogive's Mystery/Thriller VBB. I haven't heard of this book or author, but it looks like an interesting book.

Journal Entry 7 by JennyC1230 at Woodstock, Georgia USA on Wednesday, August 30, 2017
My Review: This is a fun book! I love the main character Josie Welford, she's tough, but kind. She owns a pub in a small English town. She has a past, but that actually makes her more interesting and likable. I love the small town characters in the book.
