MURDER AT THE GARDENS PUBLISHED BY BOOKOUTURE ON 14th APRIL 2022
I have been waiting for my turn on this book tour so I can tell you how great this series is by Lisa, will you work it out before Harry and Belinda get to the murderer?
A lovely day out takes a dark turn when a complaining customer is found dead… Luckily amateur sleuth Belinda Penshurst is on the scene – and ready to investigate!
Belinda Penshurst has always loved Brabourne Gardens. A keen animal lover, she enjoys walking its winding paths and listening to the excited squeals of schoolchildren encountering the kind of wildlife you don’t normally find in England. So when one of the visitors is found strangled, she’s determined to learn whodunnit – and why.
The victim, Simon Carter, had a reputation for making trouble… But surely that’s not a good enough reason to want him dead. Together with retired detective Harry Powell, Belinda investigates the goings-on behind the scenes and learns that some of the staff are more savage than the animals.
Is it Estelle Samuels, the anti-social owner, who clearly has something to hide? Or the security guard who takes his job too seriously? Most worrying of all, Belinda’s ex Ivan was there when the body was found, and she’s determined to clear his name. As suspicions swirl, one thing’s for sure: if Belinda keeps following the killer’s tracks, she might find herself in their sights…
Lisa Cutts writes crime books with her insider knowledge from the heart of the incident room where she was employed as a murder detective and is now busy writing her new cosy murder series set in Kent.
This is cosy crime at its best, the three-book series follows the antics of Belinder and Harry who is a retired detective, Belinder just wants to be a detective. Between them, they run into a few murders in the village where they live. This will make you laugh and keep you entertained, I was exceptionally pleased with myself as I worked this one out! I love the relationship between these two, I think they need to get a smaller whiteboard they can carry about in the car. Great fun to read and just perfect for the holidays. Get it on your reading list as I recommend this series if you love a bit of cosy crime, which I might add is the favourite genre at the moment with you bookworms.
