Beth Haldane, SE21’s answer to Miss Marple, worries she is losing a kindred spirit when her friend Jen, the only other single mum in the playground, suddenly gets married and moves to Camberwell.
Soon Beth has to face much more pressing fears. Has something gone horribly wrong with Jen’s marriage? What is her husband really up to? Why is her daughter leading Beth’s son astray? And where on earth IS Jen anyway?
As Beth’s friends push her to start dating again, Beth turns to Met Police DI Harry York for help. But will they solve the mystery in time, or will it turn out that in south east London, not everyone gets to live happily ever after?
This is the third book I have read in this series and they have all been thoroughly enjoyable reads.
I really enjoyed the plot with this one and the characters were great. It is an easy read and I enjoyed the afternoon it took me to read it, it is a good quality cosy mystery and it was a lovely change from the books I have been reading of late. Very much looking forward to seeing what the author releases next.
Four stars from me for this one – highly recommended!
