It takes time and finally putting together a few clues to lead Sam to her answers. Along the way she might just be able to help out more people than Georgina and possibly kick-start a romance of her own. In the end, though I would have like a bit more romance, it all makes sense and introduces me to a lovely sounding area of Portugal.

Synopsis

Sam is down on her luck…

Sacked by her boss and betrayed by her boyfriend in the space of a single day, she needs something to ward off her despair.

Her mother believes that a job at the Casa Largo guest house is the answer to all her problems.

Surrounded by palm trees and orange groves, Casa Largo is a beautiful old farmhouse in the hills of Portugal that caters for tourists who crave a tranquil holiday.

The guest house’s owner, Georgina, is grateful for the support of a fluent English speaker, as she faces pressure on all fronts – especially from her often evasive partner, Simon, who is constantly demanding money.

Sam begins to suspect that Simon’s ambiguous behaviour masks something more sinister, and when she learns that some of the Algrave’s residents live under false identities and engage in money laundering, her fears only intensify.

As the mystery deepens, Sam finds herself distracted by Hugo, a young man who was adopted by Georgina many years ago.

His relationship with his English girlfriend troubles Sam – but why?

Can Sam save her newfound friend and employer from a man who may be trying to rob her of everything she holds dear?

And can she get to the bottom of her confused feelings for Hugo?

Or will she be down and out at last?

Case Largo Mystery is a wonderfully unique combination of thought provoking mystery and captivating romance.

Miranda Barnes has lived in Northumberland nearly all her life, and most of her romantic fiction is set in the area she has come to love. Contemporary and authentic, her novels focus on the loves and lives of local people - shop assistants, craft workers, and farming and fishing folk. She is also the author of All She Ever Wanted, A New Beginning, Days Like These and A Place of Her Own.
