Blog Tour Banner - Murder at the Book Club.png
When  the  body  of  a  woman  is  discovered  on  the  common,  DCI  Barrett  and  DI  Palmer  are  called  in  to  investigate.  But  the  motive  behind  the  crime  isn’t  easy  to  identify…  And  it  all  comes  back  to  a  book  club.
Imagine  nine  women  meeting.  Tea  and  cake  is  on  the  coffee  table.  They’ve  come  together  to  share  their  love  of  books.  They  are  friends.  They  trust  each  other.  It’s  a  happy  gathering.  What  could  be  more  harmless?
Then  scratch  the  surface  and  look  closer.
One  is  lonely.  One  is  desperate  and  one  of  them  is  a  killer.
As  the  lies,  volatile  friendships  and  tension  among  the  group  rise  to  the  surface,  DCI  Barrett  and  DI  Palmer  must  work  out  the  motive  and  track  down  a  cold-blooded  killer.  But  just  when  they  think  they  are  on  the  right  track,  a  twist  in  the  case  throws  them  off  course…
Everyone  has  their  secrets.
MY REVIEW
I have read a few books by this author now and really enjoyed them so I was delighted when I saw that she had a new book being released!
I thought that this book was great, a completely addictive read that I flew through as I needed to see how it would end!
The characters are great and I loved the interaction between them – like a normal day in the office (if you read it you’ll get what I mean).  Would be a great book to discuss at a book club but I would hope you get a different ending!
I really enjoyed it, it is a great cosy murder mystery!
The flow was great and I loved the change to the author’s normal writing style.  Five stars from me for this one, very different to her other books but still an additive and enjoyable story!!
