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

‘Cosy’ village #Murder #Mystery – Murder on High by Paula Williams -#BlogTour

Remember, abseiling is only the second fastest way down a church tower.’ 

The note pinned to the teddy bear lying at the foot of the church tower could have been a joke – if it hadn’t been for the body on the path next to it!

Somebody wants to make very sure that everyone knows this was not an accident or suicide. But why?

Suddenly, no one in the village has any enthusiasm for the Teddy Bear Abseil, planned to raise money for the children’s play area, as, once again, a murderer walks the narrow, twisty streets of the small Somerset village of Much Winchmoor.

And, once again, Kat Latcham, reporter/dog walker/barmaid and occasional reluctant hair salon gopher, finds herself unwillingly dragged into a murder investigation.

This fourth Much Winchmoor mystery is spiked with humour and sprinkled with romance. 

And, of course, one carefully planned, coldly executed murder.

My Review:

Like to read cosy murder mysteries?
Then check out this book and series!
Set in the village of Much Winchmoor 
A place filled with folks who never ignore!

The latest newcomer is out to impress
With her big ideas and super smart dress.
She's out to raise money through a Teddy Bear Abseil
Down from the church tower, how can it fail?

But when a villager is found dead, 
Alongside a note and a Ted,
Is it suicide or murder, Kat's just got to discover,
Before there's another....

Filled with villagers, gossip and family drama, too
This could well be a book that'll appeal to you.
There are twists and surprises galore so
I suggest you also give it a go!

It is a fun read to keep you guessing all through
And even a twist at the end is a nasty surprise, too.
The mystery is great and full of suspense
But romance at the end leaves it very intense.

For my complementary copy of this book, I say thank you,
I throughly enjoyed reading it and this is my honest review.

Author Bio –

Paula Williams is living her dream. She’s written all her life – her earliest efforts involved blackmailing her unfortunate younger brothers into appearing in her plays and pageants. But it’s only in recent years that she discovered, to her surprise, that people with better judgement than her brothers actually liked what she wrote and were prepared to pay her for it.

Now, she writes every day in a lovely, book-lined study in her home in Somerset, UK, where she lives with her husband and a handsome but not always obedient rescue dog, a Dalmatian called Duke. She is very proud to be a member of both the UK Romantic Novelists’ Association and the Crime Writers’ Association. 

Her Much Winchmoor Mysteries are based in a small Somerset village which bears in uncanny resemblance to her own – although none of her friends and neighbours have murderous tendencies – as far as she knows! Her novels often feature a murder or two, a dog and cat or two and are always spiked with humour and sprinkled with a touch of romance.

Paula is, indeed, living her dream. But she worries that one day she’s going to wake up and find she still has to bully her brothers into performing ‘the play what she wrote’.

    Well, I do like cozy mysteries and this one sounds interesting. Nice review Elaine. I see this is book #4, so will have to see if I can find the first three.
