An Accidental Murder (The Yellow Cottage Vintage Mysteries #1)

An Accidental Murder by J. New

(The Yellow Cottage Vintage Mysteries #1)

Chapter One
It was a particularly chilly and damp Saturday afternoon in September, and I was taking a momentary break from the unpacking of boxes to have a quick sandwich and a cup of tea. I’d already laid and lit the log fire and now sat, sleepy and content, in an overstuffed armchair, watching the flames dance and flicker in the grate. An listening to the wind whistling down the chimney like and irate ghost.
