Dying to Eat at the Pub
Dying to Eat at the Pub is set in a small English village adjacent to a U.S. military base housing both Americans and British. The village shop, banger-racing course, and two pubs are the perfect place for Americans Jim and Dotty Weathervane’s leisurely life after Jim’s retirement from the U.S. armed forces. They’ve settled quite nicely in their home—a two hundred and fifty year old converted pub—to enjoy their “golden years.” But this backdrop of mixed cultures is ripe for misunderstandings, cultural diversity, and perhaps even murder. Dotty Weathervane, a sixty-plus lively character, doesn’t want to get involved with village mayhem, murders, or marital infidelity, but somehow finds herself caught up in all three. In fact, she can’t seem to keep herself out of mischief. She and Jim, her dreams-he-wished-he-could-be-Alan-Titchmarsh gardener husband, get pulled into solving a series of serious misdeeds when their small village is turned upside down after two dead bodies are found, and their garden is uprooted when a weapon is discovered in his weeds. Join Dotty, her husband Jim, their neurotic neighbor Lillie, along with a slew of locals who try their hand at solving two deaths: one an American ex-serviceman and the other a beautiful woman named Amy. Is the murderer the military wife of the dead ex-service member? Or a local villager who found out her husband was having an affair with the slain woman? Read this humorous tale of who-dun-it and find out.
