If you enjoyed Midsomer Murders, you will love Rose Temple’s Neighbourhood Watch series!

The sleepy village of Little Cote was meant to be a quieter pace of life for ex-Met PC Jemima Cotton. But she soon discovers, here a petty rivalry can erupt into full-blown murder . . .

After PC Jemima’s Cotton’s first murder investigation, she knows now to trust no one. She leaves the gifted lasagne’s uneaten in her freezer, and won’t go near a cake sale either. But when Perry Noble, head of the Little Cote darts club, is found dead on his doorstep, even PC Jemima Cotton can’t believe she’s found herself involved in yet another murder investigation in this sleepy village.

As Jemima starts to investigate, she discovers Perry had his fair share of enemies . . . especially among the darts players themselves. So it’s no surprise when the murder weapon is revealed to be a poisoned dart.

Jemima used to love playing darts at the Met, so when her boss recommends she join the club, she jumps at the opportunity to get closer to the potential suspects. But several red herrings later, she’s none the wiser and realises she might have to search further afield for the killer before they strike again.

Perfect for fans of Faith Martin, Helen Cox, Betty Rowlands, and the Midsomer Murders series by Caroline Graham.
