#1 Duncan Kincaid/Gemma James British police procedural in which Supt. Kincaid is on holiday in Yorkshire, taking his cousin's place last-minute at a timeshare at a small-town country estate turned B&B. When the body of the assistant manager, whom Kincaid met and liked, is found floating in the Jacuzzi along with a plugged-in electric space heater, the holiday starts to seem too much like work. I've had this book on my TBR for ages and am sorry I haven't read it sooner. This looks to be another Brit police series that I'm going to quite enjoy and have ordered the second in series from PBS.

I like the Gemma James character. This one of the series is mostly about Kincaid, however.

A modern version of the stately country home murder with a finite number of suspects. Whodunit will probably be a surprise

Enjoyed the book, but liked Louise Penny better. It feels like you have to read the next one and the next one.

This is the first book on the Duncan Kincaid and Gemma James mysteries. A very good read, I liked the character of Duncan Kincaid, Superintendent Kincaid takes a holiday at a time-share and instead of relaxing he is involved in a murder plot...a body floating in a hot-tub, followed by another murder. He calls his Sargent for help in investigating a crime that is not in his district, but he cannot help but get involved. i liked it.
