Genre: Cosy Crime
Publication date: June 23, 2020
Publisher: Boldwood Books
A Village Murder is a fantastic cozy mystery liberally sprinkled with clues, all teasing you to find out who the murder is.
The author has done such a good job of complicating the plot with secrets and lies that I was running around in circles until the very end trying to figure out which of Imogen’s acquaintances did the dirty deed.
I found the storytelling very engaging and I was pulled in right from the first page. No unnecessary words have been used, even when describing paintings, flowers, buildings, or gardens!
I enjoyed being guided along by the tight storytelling that manages to pack in so much in such little space. The author analyzes relationships that date back to thirty years without causing the reader to lose interest or forget the plot.
The description of how a quiet village livens up after a murder and how quickly gossip flies is so accurate. Readers will love trying to solve the mystery along with Imogen (prime suspect) and an ex-DCI (read the book to find out more!).
Thank you to the author and Rachel for my review copy!
