Roots of Evil by K.C. Wells

Many consider Naomi Teedle the village witch. Most people avoid her except when they have need of her herbs and potions. She lives alone on the outskirts of Merrychurch, and that’s fine by everyone—old Mrs. Teedle is not the most pleasant of people. But when she is found murdered, her mouth bulging with her own herbs and roots, suddenly no one has a bad word to say about her.

Jonathon de Mountford is adjusting to life up at the manor house, but it’s not a solitary life: pub landlord Mike Tattersall sees to that. Jonathon is both horrified to learn of the recent murder and confused by the sudden reversal of public opinion. Surely someone in the village had reason to want her dead? He and Mike decide it’s time for them to step in and “help” the local police with their investigation. Only problem is, their sleuthing uncovers more than one suspect—and the list is getting longer…

We return to Merrychurch a few months after book one finished and Jonathon and Mike have been dating for a few months. Their romance is coming along nicely but I love yous haven’t been exchanged yet. Jonathon hosts a bonfire and fireworks for the town, and we get to meet more members of the community only for one of them to turn up dead the next morning.

This story is delightful. Even though Mike and Jonathon have no business snooping around to uncover the murderer, everyone in town expects them to do it, even the local coppers. Some of the residents are even eager to pass information along. There are plenty of suspects and while I had my ideas on who did it, I was wrong.

This is such a fun mystery set in a quaint English village with an interesting bunch of characters. I liked the continuing romance between Mike and Jonathon and I even liked that the story faded to black when it was time for our couple to get between the sheets. It fit with the groove of the story. Roots of Evil was great, and I look forward to seeing what Jonathon and Mike get up to next.

I've always written, right from an early age. I was always writing stories as a child, and as I grew up, I had the idea of writing a novel, like so many people do. Born and raised in the north-west of England, K.C. Wells always loved writing. Words were important. Full stop. However, when childhood gave way to adulthood, the writing ceased, as life got in the way. K.C. discovered erotic fiction in 2009, where the purchase of a ménage storyline led to the startling discovery that reading about men in love was damn hot. In 2012, arriving at a really low point in life led to the desperate need to do something creative. An even bigger discovery waited in the wings—writing about men in love was even hotter... K.C. now writes full time and is loving every minute of her new career. The laptop still has no idea of what hit it... it only knows that it wants a rest, please. And it now has to get used to the idea that where K.C goes, it goes.
