One Dark Lie by Clare Chase. Published by Choc Lit

After the perilous murder investigation that Nate and Ruby lived through (barely), they need some time to rest and recover. Ruby accepts a job researching the eccentric Cambridge academic Diana Patrick-John. To give the story the ring of authenticity and enable her to research her subject, Ruby is staying in Diana’s home – the home where Diana died a mysterious death. The more Ruby learns about her subject, the more she’s convinced that someone had a hand in the woman’s death. She needs Nate’s help on this, but instead of backing her up, he begins to distance himself from her, and the case. This is the second book in this series and I like the dynamic between Nate and Ruby, which is changing all the time. The mystery is tightly plotted and imaginative, a good read
