|Summary, etc.:|| "A picture hides a thousand lies... And only Iris Grey can uncover the truth. Iris Grey rents a quaint cottage in a picture-perfect Hampshire village, looking to escape from her crumbling marriage. She is drawn to the neighboring Wetherby family, and is commissioned to paint a portrait of Dominic Wetherby, a celebrated crime writer. At the Wetherby's Christmas Eve party, the mulled wine is in full flow - but so are tensions and rivalries among the guests. On Christmas Day, the youngest member of the Wetherby family, Lorcan, finds a body in the water. A tragic accident? Or a deadly crime? With the snow falling, Iris enters a world of village gossip, romantic intrigue, buried secrets, and murder" -- Front jacket flap.

Fan-fiction darling Tilly Bagshawe turns her pen to mystery in this pseudonymous genre debut. Iris Grey is a portrait artist inching away from her failing marriage in a quaint cottage in a quaint Hampshire village. Her quiet days pick up some drama when she agrees to paint her gregarious, famous neighbor, crime writer Dominic Wetherby. Thenâas seems to happen all too often in quaint English villagesâthe hamlet's most polarizing resident is murdered. A natural observer, Iris joins Wetherby's daughter-in-law in an amateur investigation of the crime. She drums up a juicy suspect listâjilted mistress, Russian mobsters, long-suffering wife, brooding disinherited son, even her own estranged husband. Iris is a restrained artistâperhaps a requirement for the companionable work of portraitureâand she's level-headed and thoroughly likable, the quirky neighbor you wish you had time to know better. Happily for readers, we will get the chance to spend more time with Iris in upcoming adventures. A most enjoyable and energetic cozy. Copyright 2018 Booklist Reviews.
