Reviews

‘The sleeper book of the year… so much fun to read that you forget to even try and solve the case. And good luck solving it anyway, with twists within twists within twists’ ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

‘Set in beautiful Cornwall, the characters were quirky and slightly magical, the writing was good and the mystery was totally unpredictable. Well done to the author for writing an excellent cosy mystery whilst avoiding some of the normal characteristics of the genre.’ ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

‘Intelligently written with comedy, sarcasm, murder and peculiarity at its heart making for an entertaining and intriguing read’ ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

‘There aren’t enough words to tell you how much I enjoyed this book. Odd. Funny. Engaging. Brilliant. I absolutely loved it. I am not often lost for words when trying to explain what makes a book special’ ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

‘I didn’t put it down until I was finished…and slightly sleep deprived as a result…and I’m thrilled!’ ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

‘Kept me reading and put a smile on my face. And I can’t ask more than that. A really promising debut’ ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

‘Reflects (exaggerates) the eccentricities of the British people, in particular the Cornish… the author brought wicked sarcasm and snark into her characters’ ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

‘More than a fun read, it is a good cozy mystery with fascinating characters, sneaky twists, and incredible red herrings’ ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Waste of time

Terrible book, not what I call a cozy mystery. Disgusting language and author tries to hard to be cute.
