MURDER, MYSTERY…AND MARROWS
Some people would describe Beattie Bramshaw as a pillar of the community. Many would applaud her numerous successes in the bakery competition at the annual village show. A small number might say, if pushed, that they find her a little on the bossy side. And one or two might just whisper the words ‘interfering’ and ‘busybody’ behind her back.
But no-one would have her down as a murderer.
So why is she being questioned in Dreighton police station after being found in the local allotments, at the dead of night, wielding a kitchen knife just yards away from where local lottery winner, Yvonne Richards, was found stabbed to death? And what does all of this have to do with Doug Sparrow’s prize marrows?
Marrow Jam is a comedy crime caper in the spirit of Agatha Raisin. It will have you chuckling all the way through many a cup of tea.
I thought that this story was great and I loved the characters!
The book was very well written and I loved the flow that the author had to the story. It was a top notch cosy mystery and the perfect book to escape with for me
The story was brilliant, it was easy to follow and I was happily dipping in and out of the book over the course of an afternoon. I thought that the characters were excellent, they were really well developed and they worked well together too – I loved their interaction, I was giggling in places and I loved that about the book, the author really brought country life, to life!
I will definitely be looking out for more books from this author in the future, this was a delightful read and already want to read more!
It is 4.5 stars from me for this one, rounded up to 5 stars for Goodreads and Amazon – it was a fab story and it is definitely one that I will be very highly recommending!
