As she left it
When she was twelve years old, Opal Jones escaped her mother’s endless drinking. Now, returning to their small Leeds cottage after her mum’s death, Opal feels like she’s gone back in time. Nosey Mrs. Pickess is still polishing her windows to a sparkle. Fishbo, Opal’s ancient music teacher, still plays trumpet with his band. And much to Opal’s delight, her favorite neighbor, Margaret Reid, still keeps an eye on things from the walk in front of her house.
But a tragedy has struck Mote Street. Margaret’s grandson, Craig, disappeared some ten years ago, and every day he’s not found, shame and sorrow settle deeper into the neighborhood’s forgotten corners. As the door she closed on her own dark past begins to open, Opal uncovers more secrets than she can bear about the people who were once her friends.
I've read her Dandy Gilver series and enjoyed them. They're set in 1920's Scotland and Dandy is a Private Detective. They probably could be considered 'cozy' mystery/murder.
This novel is not part of that series and is set in the present (from what I gather) and I guess it might not be as 'cozy'.
Available from Amazon Aus, US and Canada.
