Find Murdered by the Books here.

A race against time, red herrings all over, loveable characters (including the two dogs), romance, and a Miss Marple like intricate plot line which gives you a satisfactory, Ah yes, of course, at the end. What else does a reader need in a cosy mystery?

Highly recommend.

    1. Oh yes – haven’t you watched any of those TV series? Good, light watching and a puzzle to work out whodunnit.

      1. Yes I’ve seen both. Most enjoyable. Just love the term light murders. After all murder is murder light or otherwise 😂

  1. Sounds like her books would be very interesting. Reminds me a little of Father Brown mysteries or that series Harry Wild starring Jane Seymour. At least I think it’s a series. I’ve only seen a couple of episodes earlier this week. You certainly have met some fascinating characters since you began writing your books on Sammys Walks 😀

    1. Cosy mysteries are very Miss Marple like, or the ITV series Midsomer Murders. Light murder!
