  • By Mr. David Green on 4 August 2017

    Too much inconsequential rambling in parts for my liking. Certain paragraphs in the book didn't appear to be anything to do with the story.

  • By Ellen Procter on 24 June 2017

    I have really enjoyed this book. Usually I can work out who the murderer is but this one kept me guessing.

  • By Anne Byrne on 11 June 2017

    Good read, quietly exciting enjoyed a lot.

    Having read one cotswold mystery book and finding it not only seriously wanting I decided that such a brusque judgment could be seen as unfair so I went for a second try. Dreadfully sorry to report that I am even more convinced that the author doesn't have the required talent to produce a good mystery/crime/Thriller genre book and should perhaps change to kitchen sink novels. The theories applied to the storyline added to the base being around a very unlikable main character who is incapable of any coherent thought, due to what comes across to the reader as being serious mental health issues, means the books are too fragmented. There won't be a further reprieve for a third try.

    There is much in this book that I admire; the author's skill in attending to minute details as well as an expansive knowledge of the Cotswold setting. Both are cleverly interspersed with her personal philosophy as to the nature of humanity. Thea, the heroine, is a strong, intelligent woman, who is quite able to cope with two murders which have been committed in close proximity of the house in which she is staying. She has not only the ability to pursue her own investigation alongside the police, but also the skill to evaluate the evidence. However, she has an underlying vulnerability that evokes compassion and sympathy in the reader. Thea is the book and, sometimes the plot is subordinate, yet does not suffer for it. I enjoyed 'A Cotswold Killing' very much and would not hesitate to buy another book by Rebecca Tope.
