About the Book:
A joke? A prank? Or something more sinister?
When the Exham-on-Sea residents are targeted by anonymous emails containing apparently harmless nursery rhymes, no one knows whether to laugh or shudder until an unexplained death touches the town.
Libby Forest, baker, chocolatier and Exham’s very own resident private investigator, alongside her partner Max Ramshore, set out to solve the puzzle before more people die. But when Max’s ex-wife arrives on the scene, ahead of Max and Libby’s long-awaited nuptials, things go from bad to worse.
With the town and their relationship under threat, Max and Libby need the help of the Exham History Society if they’re going to find the nursery rhyme killer in time.
Murder at the Gorge is the seventh in a series of Exham-on-Sea Murder Mysteries set at the small English seaside town full of quirky characters, sea air, and gossip.
If you love Agatha Christie-style mysteries, cosy crime, clever dogs and cake, then you’ll love these intriguing whodunnits.
Well-written and delightful cozy mystery/romance!
Libby has a lot going on….the new cafe she is a part of is opening, and most importantly, she is gearing up to marry her partner, Max, in the next few weeks. And, Christmas is right around the corner too. So, the last thing she and Max need to be involved in is a murder mystery, but that is exactly what they get!
Several of the citizens have received emails from an unknown source that are nursery rhymes. At first, they seem to be harmless until Max discovers the body of a woman who had received one. Now, they are taking on a whole new meaning. If that wasn’t enough, Max’s ex-wife comes back into his life needing his help. She is also receiving threatening emails. He and Libby think it all has to be related, but they have to find the link that connects it all.
The mystery is not as cut and dry as it seems. It involves digging into the history of several of the residents and the town itself. By doing that, readers get to know more about the characters. There are surprises along the way, and I had no idea who the killer would turn out to be…which I love in my mysteries.
If you like your mysteries to keep you guessing, along with some really great characters and a lovely setting, you can’t go wrong with this one!
