A huge funeral for Windermere's popular resident, Barbara Dodge, is taking place and florist Persimmon 'Simmy' Brown and her new assistant, Bonnie Lawson are busy compiling wreaths in preparation. There's word of a series of sinister dognappings occurring in nearby Troutbeck and whilst taking a walk up Wansfell Pike, Simmy and her father, Russell, stumble on a dog, strangled to death - it's not long before Simmy reluctantly finds herself caught up in a murder investigation ...
The Troutbeck Testimony 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.
Following a personal tragedy, florist Persimmon 'Simmy' Brown has moved to the Lake District to be nearer her charismatic parents. Things are going well and Simmy content to lose herself in her work. But the peace she has found is shattered when, at the wedding of a millionaire's daughter, the bride's brother is found brutally murdered.
In taking an order for a retirement party in Staveley, Simmy Brown is pulled into her most challenging investigation. When a daughter starts accusing her own mother of murder, Simmy, Ben and Bonnie find themselves taking different sides. With her relationships under strain, can Simmy leave her own concerns behind to discover just who the killer is?
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.
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.
