Sour Grapes

3.43 based on 23 ratings & 1 reviews on Goodreads.com

Now a full-time mother and bestselling writer, Willow King is content to leave crime-solving to her police chief husband. Yet she can’t resist a case involving Andrew Lutterworth, accused of a fatal hit-and-run that landed him in prison for manslaughter. His wife suspects he was forced to confess and was incarcerated on purely circumstantial evidence.

But what could motivate a man to admit to a crime he did not commit a willingly go to jail because of it? The truth behind the puzzle is as dark and perplexing as the human psyche—and as tragic as the half-truths of self-deception that lead to murder.

‘With her deft characterizations and intriguing puzzle, Cooper provides a . . . fine British cozy.’ Publishers Weekly
