Bumsted Picks of 2018: Wendy's Pick -

In a Cottage in a Wood by Cass Green, TP $21.99, (coming in mass market January 29th, $12.99)

Cass Green is a British writer whose first book, The Woman Next Door, was originally published as an e-book. It quickly became a number 1 best seller. In a Cottage in a Wood is her second novel. Although not a fan of ‘grip lit’ or ‘domestic noir’ as it is now often called, I really enjoyed this book. I liked the settings, London and Cornwall and I found the characters generally likeable and believable. The plot moved along at a good pace. It was everything a good mystery should be, engaging and not too long.
