THE tenth novel by Cheddon Fitzpaine author and former national newspaper journalist Jane McLoughlin, A Nice Place to Die, is being published on June 30.

The book is set in Somerset and is billed as charting ‘the dire social and criminal consequences when a new housing estate is attached to an old agricultural community’.

Jane said the book contains issues familiar to people living in villages like Norton Fitzwarren and Curry Rivel. It will be on sale at Brendon Books in Taunton.
