Title: Honeymoon with Death
Series: A Murder Will Follow #2
Author: Vivian Conroy
Published: July 1st, 2019
If you enjoy mysteries set in the 1920s with an Agatha Christie style, grab yourself a copy of this fantastic story! I had thoroughly enjoyed reading ‘A Testament to Murder’, the first book in this series, so was eager to read this one and I wasn’t disappointed!
A whirlwind romance swiftly followed by a dream wedding and honeymoon on an idyllic Greek island sounds like beautiful romance, however there are mysteries galore in this cosy murder mystery. Just why does the new bride, Damaris Ramsforth, find the honeymoon location so familiar? Even worse, how did she find herself standing over a dead body with no memory of how she got there or what she was doing? Is she going mad? What is wrong?
That’s when the intrepid former Scotland Yard Inspector Jasper comes to her rescue. He’s holidaying on the island with a local contemporary and he just can’t help making his own enquiries. He’s shocked to discover that this isn’t the first time that Damaris has been involved in a murder enquiry. This isn’t just one murder mystery but several puzzles intricately threaded together and difficult to untangle for everyone except, of course, the logical, determined Inspector Jasper. He’s a less eccentric version of Hercule Poirot, with great deductive powers that help weave those threads into a complex tapestry with all revelations made in the end.
This is a fantastic story and I thoroughly enjoyed reading it. I have absolutely no hesitation in highly recommending it to anyone else who enjoys Agatha Christie style murder mysteries.
Many thanks to Canelo for gifting me a copy of this book via NetGalley. This is my honest review after reading and being totally enthralled by this fantastic murder mystery.
Suspenseful to the last page, Honeymoon with Death is perfect for fans of Agatha Christie’s Sleeping Murder and Evil Under The Sun
After a whirlwind romance and dream wedding, the new Mrs Ramsforth is whisked away to an idyllic Greek island by her adoring husband. But as soon as they arrive at their luxurious hotel overlooking the azure sea, Damaris is struck by the feeling she’s been here before…
Puzzling over the familiarity, Damaris’ honeymoon goes from unsettling to a complete nightmare when she finds herself standing over a dead body, unable to explain how she got there.
Now only one man can save her – fellow holidaymaker and former Scotland Yard inspector Jasper. But even he starts to doubt Damaris’ innocence when he discovers that it’s not her first time embroiled in a murder case…
The first book in this series is A Testament to Murder
