Death Takes a Bath (A Cotswold Crimes Mystery Book 1) by Sharon Lynn



When Maddie McGuire lands an archaeology internship at the Roman Baths in England, she assumes everything will go her way. But when this college sophomore discovers a severed human ear on her doorstep, she must solve its meaning before she becomes the next victim, or worse, gets deported. Her tentative friendship with young constable Edward Bailey and the beauty of the Bath Abbey are no comfort as her aristocratic coworker Simon Pacock sabotages her every move. And the danger only increases when she discovers a dead body, both ears intact.

A contemporary murder mystery set in Bath. 
Maddie is a nineteen-year-old archaeology student from America on a coveted internship at the Roman Baths in Bath.
Things take a suddenly sinister turn almost as soon as she arrives in England with a severed ear being sent to her new address followed by a murder and numerous 'accidents.'
Constable Edward Bailey is a friendly pal to help her through the ordeal but he blows hot and cold and I couldn't quite get a handle on their romance. 
Maddie's co-worker, Simon made life very difficult for Maddie but becomes more likeable by the end and I hope he and Maddie remain friends.
There was a lot of suspenseful drama in this book and the final section was very exciting. 
I'm looking forward to reading book two soon.
