My Review:

Gosh, ever read the blurb of a book that sounds like you?
I'm a retired primary teacher who dines with two ex-teacher friends, too!
We three get together regularly, like the heroines in this tale
So I just had to listen to it,  I couldn't see how it could fail!

So glad I decided to give this one a trial
There are anecdotes throughout that made me smile!
From rationing of laminating pouches to hoarding glue sticks,
Inset dramas, pupil capers and lots more in the mix.

It is also a cosy murder mystery and as it all unfolds
Leaves clues and hints as events are told.
With issues like dementia and different points of view
This is an intriguing story I enjoyed listening to.

I really enjoyed the narrator, she brought it to life
Sharing all the memories, investigations and strife.
Her accent was appropriate, clear and easy to listen to
Making this an audiobook I highly recommend to you!

For my complementary copy of this audiobook I say thank you
I thoroughly enjoyed listening and this is my honest review.


Retirement can be murder…

Every Thursday, three retired school teachers have their ‘coffee o’clock’ sessions at the Thirsk Garden Centre café.

But one fateful week, as they are catching up with a slice of cake, they bump into their ex-colleague, Topsy.

By the next Thursday, Topsy’s dead.

The last thing Liz, Thelma and Pat imagined was that they would become involved in a murder.

But they know there’s more to Topsy’s death than meets the eye – and it’s down to them to prove it…

Sit down with a cup of tea, a slice of cake and this perfectly witty, page-turning cosy crime novel. Fans of The Thursday Murder Club, Death in Paradise and Midsomer Murders will be hooked from the very first page.

    I also connected to this book for the same reasons, Elaine. It was a fun story with two great mysteries to solve and both relatable too. Great review.
