Murder in the Village by Lisa Cutts (A Belinda Penshurst Mystery Book 1)
If you like to read a cozy mystery set in a picturesque English village then this is the book for you. The narration of the audiobook is excellent and the story itself moves along at a lively pace. The protagonists are, to be generous, no longer young. The violence is usually off screen and never graphic. The language is comfortably modern yet never steps over that line that makes one worry about who else can hear what you are listening to. There are both male and female p.o.v. characters, and no group is cast as outsiders or inherently dangerous.
As a bonus, a book that suggests that the best way to judge a person’s character is how they interact with dogs.
