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

#Intriguing #CosyMystery – Cause of Death by Anna Legat – #BlogTour

My Review:

Although this is the third in the series, I have to say,
It works well as a standalone anyway!
There are references to events from earlier times
But this doesn't detract from this book's crimes.

It starts with graffiti on a huge community scale,
As they work together to make developers' plans fail.
At Parish meetings, the community and others, too
Are all brought to life as they share their view.

Sam Dee and Maggie Kaye accidentally discover
A murdered body, posed like a fictional other.
Why was he killed, is it a personal vendetta?
Maggie's determined to find out - if Sam will let her!

The story is told from their points of view
As they carry out investigations into events - not one but two.
With secrets from the past being revealed
Can they stop the perpetrators remaining concealed?

With a great sense of community and characters galore
This is a cosy mystery I was more than happy to explore.
It is very different with Maggie's special ability
Adding an unusual element of psychic capability.

This is the first book by this author that I've ever read
But I'll be looking out for more, that has to be said!
I enjoyed the quirks in this engaging story so
I hope to be giving other books in this series a go.

It is a fascinating story to escape into
With delightful characters, I recommend it to you.
For my complementary copy, I say thank you,
Such intriguing mysteries and this is my honest review.

Synopsis:

All is not well in the village. The local meadows have been the pride of Bishops Well for hundreds of years, but now they are facing the sharp blades of developers. The landowner is a rich and reclusive author who is happy to see them destroyed, but the villagers – including Sam Dee and Maggie Kaye – are fighting back.

Until, that is, someone decides to silence one of their number permanently.

As Maggie and Sam soon discover, there is more than a quick buck to be made in the developers’ plans. There are age-old secrets and personal vendettas that could have deadly repercussions in Bishops Well today.

With Sam’s legal expertise and Maggie’s… well, Maggie-ness, they delve into the past, determined to unearth the truth. And, as sparks begin to fly, could there finally be something more between this sleuthing duo?
