Peter Grainger is an under-appreciated, great writer.
Still — I couldn’t get through the second book in this series ➙ One-way Ticket.
Arcadia the 3rd book in the Willows and Lane series.
They are an unlikely couple of detectives:
Emily Willows is middle-aged, widowed, wealthy, and bored.
Summer Lane is a new neighbour. It turns out she’s a skilled former police D.I. — but wants to remain anonymous, if possible.
Emily wants to form a Detective Agency with Summer, … who is reluctant.
In this book they are somehow convinced to investigate the disappearance (?) of a wealthy couple’s daughter. She’s reportedly out of communication in an eco community on a Welsh island.
