Accidental P.I. Lexy Lomax is investigating a suspicious death in a decidedly spooky cottage. Kinky, her truculent chihuahua, hates the place, but he seems to be in a minority. She's hindered by her obnoxious ex, and a mysterious beast that dogs her footsteps. And dark forces are running amok. ""Hill's smashing sequel. . . improves on her well-received debut. . . Hill avoids the usual cozy clichés in this cracking good read."" -Publishers Weekly, Starred Review ""It moves along at a good pace and it is well-written and absorbing."" - I Love a Mystery ""Sassy Lexy frequently acts with more guts than sense, but that's why reading about her is so much fun. . . Fans of British cozies will love Fall Girl.""-Mystery Scene Magazine ""The author and her protagonist had me completely charmed very quickly. Lexy's investigation at the dead woman's cottage, with the invaluable assistance of her friend, DI Bernard Milo, takes some suspenseful and unexpected turns, with a wholly satisfying resolution. A thoroughly delightful tale.""-Crime Spree Magazine

Kaye C Hill lives in Guildford. A career involving steel-capped boots, chainsaws and railway embankments somehow inspired her to start writing crime fiction. www.kayechill.comFrom Booklist:
Lexy Lomax, née Alexandra Warwick-Holmes, is barely making ends meet in the Suffolk village of Clopwolde-on-Sea three months after leaving a bad marriage and becoming a private eye, even hoping to sell the pending litter of a rare breed of cat to pay her bills. So she takes the case of 16-year-old Rowana Paterson, who feels responsibile for the apparently accidental death of Elizabeth Cassall, a friend of her late mother’s. But Rowana, taking up the occult, had cast a spell for financial help the night before Cassall died, then learned she was the woman’s sole beneficiary. Lexy finds signs of secrecy and guilt in the behavior of the Gallimore men at the farm neighboring Cassall’s cottage, and Rowana’s financially strapped father also becomes suspect. Meanwhile, Lexy tries to avoid her estranged husband, who’s currently working nearby. Fortunately, Detective Inspector Bernard Milo is at hand to assist, as a host of secrets are sorted out. In this sequel to Dead Woman’s Shoes (2008), Hill again shows a winning way with whimsical mystery. --Michele Leber
