Thea Osborne and her faithful spaniel, Hepzie, have taken on a house-sitting assignment in the charming Cotswold village of Temple Guiting. But as always, an idyllic village can harbour a disquieting number of secrets and when a skeleton is discovered at the roots of an old beech tree, Thea is grateful for the presence of her partner DS Phil Hollis. There is no concrete evidence as to who the bones belonged to although it isn't long before theories and rumours abound. Thea soon finds herself drawn into a murder investigation ? perhaps the countryside isn't that quiet after all.
Blood in the Cotswolds Paperback edition by Rebecca Tope
REBECCA TOPE is the author of fourteen previous crime novels. She lives on a smallholding in Herefordshire, with a full complement of livestock, but manages to travel the world and enjoy civilisation from time to time as well. Most of her varied experiences and activities find their way into her books, sooner or later. For example, bee-keeping, milk recording, spinning, arguing, undertaking and gardening.

Thea Slocombe is trying to settle into normal life with Drew and his children but any sense of domesticity is shattered when she finds a body. Unconvinced the conclusion made by the police is correct, Thea decides to investigate herself. But what repercussions might there be for her, Drew and those with whom they share this corner of the Cotswolds?
Thea and Drew are settled in the village of Broad Campden, but Thea is bored of domestic routines, missing the adventures of house-sitting. When a burial exposes family secrets, Drew finds himself caught in a feud. As he struggles with a profound dilemma and Thea fights the charms of a new man, can their marriage survive this latest Cotswold drama?
Nestled in the fertile hills of the Cotswolds, the village of Duntisbourne Abbots is a well-kept secret: beautiful, timeless and quintessentially English. When recently widowed Thea Osborne arrives to house-sit for a local couple, her only fear is that three weeks there might prove a little dull.
Thea Osborne is thanking her lucky stars. After two disastrous housesitting incidents in which she unwittingly became embroiled in murder and mayhem, she is only too happy to have a bit of time to concentrate on her blossoming relationship with DI Phil Hollis.
Thea Osborne is house-sitting in the late Greta Simmonds' house when she finds herself embroiled in a murder investigation once again. After befriending undertaker Drew Slocombe, she soon finds she's aligned herself with the police's only suspect. But in a village simmering with secrets, a means and a motive could be laid at anybody's door.
Once again, there's death on her doorstep - Thea throws herself into house-sitting for Babs and Cedric Angell in Lower Slaughter following her father's death. Although it's lonely, she has her spaniel Hepzie for company. But when Thea's prickly older sister turns up, after witnessing a killing, the tranquillity of Lower Slaughter vanishes.
Despite the catastrophic outcomes of her previous house-sitting commissions, Thea Osborne, accompanied by her trusty spaniel, Hepzie, is truly convinced nothing can go wrong on her next assignment in the charming village of Blockley. The Montgomerys have asked her to look after their house while they take a much needed holiday.
In the wake of a series of unfortunate experiences in the Cotswolds, Thea Osborne, accompanied by her spaniel Hepzibah, is perhaps over-optimistic about the English summertime and the possibilities of her latest house-sitting assignment in the secluded village of Cranham.
Following a string of disastrous house-sitting assignments, and an equally troubled personal life, Thea Osborne is understandably apprehensive about her latest commission: a wintry month in an isolated house with only an assortment of animals, including her loyal spaniel Hepzie, for company.
