The Couple at Number 9 by Claire Douglas

About the book: Pub date: August 2nd! 

The Victims . . .

When pregnant Saffron Cutler moves into 9 Skelton Place with boyfriend Tom and sets about renovations, the last thing she expects is builders uncovering human remains. The remains of two bodies, in fact.

The Investigation . . .

Forensics indicate the bodies have been buried at least thirty years. Saffy has nothing to worry about--until the police launch a murder inquiry and ask to speak to the cottage's former owner. Her grandmother, Rose.

The Witness . . .

Rose is in a nursing home and Alzheimer's means her memory is increasingly confused. She can't help the police, but its' clear she remembers something.

The Killer . . .

As Rose's fragmented memories resurface, and the police dig ever deeper, Saffy fears she and the cottage are being watched.

The Truth . . .

What happened thirty years ago? Why did no one miss the victims? What part did her grandmother play? And is Saffy now in danger?

What a shock it must have been to be in the middle of renovating their new place… and finding bodies…😳…buried in the garden πŸͺ΄ πŸͺ¦ OMG…😧Who is buried in the garden?? Who did it??? How did the nosey neighbors… not see a thing??πŸ€”πŸ€”πŸ€”

Certainly grandma πŸ‘΅ Rose 🌹.. the previous owner wouldn’t have had anything to do with this heinous crime?! Did she know bodies were buried in her backyard? Will we ever know??? Gran Rose can’t even remember her own daughter?πŸ˜₯
