The Dead Past (Puddledown Mysteries Book 1) [Kindle Edition]
Kate Aaron (Author)

Puddledown, England

The year is 1948, the war is over and the evacuees have gone home, although rationing continues. For Hugo Wainwright, who escaped conscription and never had to fight for his country, very little has changed. He lives a quiet life away from the big cities, knowing his desires for other men will lead to disaster if he ever acts on them.

Tommy Granger spent his service on the battlefields of France. He experienced it all: the bloody horrors of war, and the chaos of Dunkirk. Finding employment as groundskeeper in the woods on the outskirts of Puddledown, he lives in solitude, trying to forget all the terrible things he’s seen.

When Hugo stumbles over a body not far from Tommy’s cabin, both men’s lives change forever. There’s a killer in the woods, and the townsfolk are sure Tommy is the culprit. Can Hugo unmask the murderer and prove the innocence of the man he’s falling for, or are the deadly consequences of Tommy’s past about to catch up to him and separate the two men forever?

Throw in Angel, a waitress at Moe’s who’s not quite what she seems, and Barbara Welch, a femme fatale, and we’ve got Dave fighting for answers while struggling to stay afloat in a morass of subterfuge that will keep you guessing to the final pages.

Willow, by Cleve Sylcox

In the distant light I saw,

The season change and it was fall,

Leaves glided on a stiff north wind,

And I never thought I’d see you again,

 

Time enhances love and thought,

I forgot all the years we fought,

I only remember your smiling face,

You held me and gave me grace,

 

Hold me in the nighttime,

Gaze into my eyes,

Ignore the tears of crying,

I know it’s hard but try,

 

I want to be with you dearly,

I’ve traveled far and I’m weary,

Place your head on your pillow,

And dream of me tonight.
