Mystery at the Old Mill: A completely gripping cozy mystery novel (An Eve Mallow Mystery Book 4) Kindle Edition
‘Simply superb… gripping’ Avid Readers’ Retreat, ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
‘Keeps you glued to the pages’ Goodreads Reviewer, ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
‘Wonderful’ Goodreads Reviewer, ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
When the calm of Saxford St Peter is disrupted by a deadly fire at the Old Mill, amateur sleuth Eve Mallow finds herself investigating a most surprising mystery!
Everyone in Saxford St Peter is desperate to get to know Harry Tennant, the charming newcomer who owns the Old Mill, particularly Eve Mallow. He keeps himself to himself, and Eve is sure he’s hiding something… When Harry invites the whole village round for drinks, she can’t wait to find out more.
But two days before the party, a terrible fire sweeps through the mill, and Harry is found dead. When Eve passes the burned remains of his beautiful house, she can’t resist the call to investigate. Especially when it turns out Harry was living a double life as the famous advice writer Pippa Longford, and several of the villagers wrote letters to him. Eve has to wonder what confidences her neighbours shared… and whether one of them was worth killing for.
Accompanied by her reliable dachshund sidekick Gus, Eve starts digging. She soon realises Harry was at the centre of a web of lives – and lies. There’s an angry uncle desperate to inherit, an unhappy woman he didn’t want to marry, not to mention all the people who told him their darkest secrets. Was one of them much closer to home than Harry knew? And can Eve untangle the truth before she finds herself face to face with a killer?
A completely charming page-turner, perfect for fans of Faith Martin, Agatha Christie and Betty Rowlands.

The town of Saxford St Peter is again hit with tragedy when a fire at the Old Mill claims the life of its new owner Harry Tennant. As Eve writes his obituary, she uncovers that Harry has been living a double life and as his lies are exposed, wonders if there is more to his death than meets the eye…
The mystery plays out well and when it is established that Harry’s death was no accident, the reader is given a number of characters to suspect. Clare Chase never makes the culprit obvious, which always makes for a surprise when revealed and not who you expected at all.
What I love the most about this series is, I always know I am going to read something great and Mystery at the Old Mill is no exception. It has been beautifully written, its plot is fresh, has plenty of red herrings and with its cast of quirky characters, makes for an enjoyable and effortless read.
The Eve Mallow series is one I can not recommend highly enough and is a masterclass in the cozy mystery genre. I get so much enjoyment from reading these books and it is a series that has definitely captured my heart. My only critique, they always end way too soon!
Mystery at the Old Mill is a fun and entertaining cozy mystery and as I always say, can be read as a standalone, but you would be missing out on three other fantastic books. Go on, go get them. I guarantee you will not be disappointed!
