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

Another #5* brilliant Kate Palmer #Mystery – A Body at the Altar by Dee MacDonald – very highly recommend!!

My Review:

 If you enjoy a contemporary, cosy, murder mystery
Set in a small Cornish village with family drama and history
Then this book is one I highly recommend you read - 
It could easily be just what you need!

I received a complementary copy of this book
And this is my honest review, please take a look.
When I spotted another book involving Kate Palmer
Let's just say, I wasn't calmer!

Nurse Kate Palmer is getting a reputation for solving crime
She doesn't mean to get involved, well not every time!
She's at the wedding when the groom drops down, dead
She tries to revive him but needs to solve his murder instead.

With anonymous letters tearing the engaged apart
And lots of families having drama right from the start
This is an intriguing investigation but beware
More lives are in danger so Kate and Woody, please take care!

What a fascinating read this story proved to be
With plenty of clues, romance and mystery
Such a page-turner with drama and danger throughout
I highly recommend it without any doubt!!


Nurse Kate Palmer thought the pretty Cornish village of Tinworthy would be the perfect place for a peaceful retirement. She couldn’t have been more wrong! But even she is shocked when she attends a beautiful wedding at St. Pirin’s Church and the handsome groom drops dead in front of her very eyes.

While the rest of the wedding party panics, Kate notices the strange behaviour of the not-so-blushing bride and the posh mother-in-law – and vows to find out the truth behind the poor young man’s sudden demise. Especially when the new detective Charlotte Martin makes it known that she doesn’t want Kate involved – and also shows an interest in Woody Forrest, Kate’s partner in crime-solving.

Undeterred, Kate discovers this isn’t the only wedding to have been sabotaged. A series of peculiar letters contain the clues Kate needs to get to the heart of the matter. But is the mystery letter writer behind the unusual deaths? Or is more than one person responsible for the strange goings on in the seaside village…

As Kate digs deeper, she adds more suspects to her growing list: the world-weary vicar, the unlucky-in-love cleaner and the bride’s former flame. But, as a pair of boots bring Kate closer to the killer, it becomes clear their investigation has placed Woody in danger.

Can Kate solve the murder and save the man she loves at the same time?

If you love cozy crime mysteries by Agatha Christie, Faith Martin or Joy Ellis, this page-turning novel will have you reading late into the night!
