Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!

Murder at the Gorge by Frances Evesham

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.

My Review:

How have I missed reading the other books by this talented author?!?!? This is the seventh book in this series but the first one that I’ve read and I really need to read the others now! It is set in the delightful small community of Exham-On-Sea in Somerset where Libby Forest and her soon-to-be husband Max Ramshore live. As their wedding approaches family – and his ex-wife – together with a murder and mysterious, anonymous nursery rhyme emails to a variety of residents leave everyone unsettled but there’s even more to come in this fantastic cosy mystery! It is an engaging page turner filled with an eclectic mix of characters, plenty of suspicions, twists and turns to keep you guessing. I found it an enthralling read and it worked well as a standalone though it has definitely whetted my appetite for reading the earlier stories and more by this author. If you enjoy small community, cosy mysteries with the added dose of romance and family drama, I think that you’ll enjoy escaping into this story, too, I certainly did!

Thanks to Boldwood Books and NetGalley for my copy of this book which I have voluntarily read, thoroughly enjoyed and honestly reviewed.
