This is the first I've read by J.A. Lang and this novella doesn't disappoint. You can download a free copy from her web site.
Of course any stories set in the Cotswolds are bound to have an English village feel to them and this is no different, although part of the story is set on the coast.
A short story is a great way for an introduction to a new author and I'll definitely look out for more of her series.
