The Ambleside Alibi Paperback edition by Rebecca Tope
Rebecca Tope has led a varied career working as an antenatal teacher, a Relate counsellor and an assistant funeral director. She currently lives on a smallholding in rural Herefordshire rearing Cotswold sheep and Tamworth and Berkshire pigs and produces her own meat and wool.
Winter has arrived in Windermere, and has bought the death of Frances Henderson, the best friend of Simmy Brown's mother. Having known the Henderson family all of her life, Simmy struggles to cope with the loss. When Frances's husband is violently murdered in his home, Simmy must accept that the family she was once close to holds some dark secrets.
Simmy Brown has a lot on her mind: not just keeping her florist business afloat, the challenge of developing a long-term relationship with Christopher, but also the approach of Mother's Day, a busy and painful day for her.
But in taking an order for a retirement party in Staveley, she is pulled into her most challenging investigation.
Persimmon 'Simmy' Brown's florist shop in Windermere is struggling for money, so a contract to provide floral displays for a hotel in Hawkshead couldn't have arrived at a better moment. However, Simmy's association with the hotel soon turns sinister when she finds a body in the lake.
Twenty years after her brother Callum mysteriously vanished, Orla Payne is still haunted by his disappearance. In spite of DCI Hannah Scarlett's doubt that there is anything to be done on such a long-dead case, when Orla is found dead, she discovers that investigating the past can throw up some very dangerous truths indeed.

On Halloween, just before the First World War, a young woman's corpse was found with a makeshift shroud frozen to her battered face. Her ghost - the Faceless Woman - is said to walk through Ravenbank each Halloween. Just five years ago, Katya Moss was killed, her face also covered to hide her injuries. The seemingly related cases fascinate Daniel Kind, a specialist in the history of murder. Then,...
Looking into a cold case with ties to the Whiteley familys past and their magnificent home, Dungeon House, Hannah Scarlett begins to question what really happened the night Malcolm Whiteley killed his wife and daughter, then himself.
Twenty years ago, teenager Callum Hinds went missing in England's Lake District. His uncle, suspected of having done the boy harm, was interviewed by the police.
