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

Intriguing #Historical #CosyMystery – Death Down the Aisle by Verity Bright – Brilliant addition to this fascinating series!

My Review:

This is another brilliant cosy mystery,
Set in the 1920s period of history,
An Agatha Christie type of thriller
With Lady Eleanor Swift searching for the killer!

A visit to the local inn
A scream - what's happening?
A rush only to discover
Her friend's groom kneeling over another!

Lady Eleanor is asked to help to find out who
This dastardly dead would actually do.
The bride to be is certain it is not her groom
Who brought his blackmailing ex to her doom.

An intriguing read with twists galore
Kept me reading more and more!
This time Eleanor is working with her beau
What it'll lead to - read it to know!

With Clifford and Gladstone involved in the case
And a five year old boy getting out of place.
There's a growing sense of potential romance
I really hope Eleanor and Hugh with give love a chance!

I really enjoyed this historical thriller
And suspected many of being the killer.
For my complementary copy of this book, I say thank you,
It is a fascinating cosy mystery and this is my honest review.

Book Description:

The society wedding of the decade has everything: the blushing bride, beautiful flowers… and the groom arrested before he can walk down the aisle? Thank goodness Lady Swift is on the guest list!

Lady Eleanor Swift isn’t normally one for grand social occasions, but who can resist a wedding? Especially when it’s her old friend, Constance Grainger, marrying the most eligible bachelor in town, Lord Peregrine Davencourt. Eleanor is taking Gladstone the bulldog as her plus one, with a smart new bowtie to match her bridesmaid’s dress.

But the big day is ruined when the groom is arrested for murder before he makes it to the altar. In a baffling twist, it turns out he was already engaged to the lovely Daisy Balforth, who has been found dead at the local inn with Lord Davencourt kneeling over her. The gossip pages will have a field day!

The distraught bride-to-be asks Eleanor to clear her fiancé’s name, as she’s certain he wouldn’t hurt a fly. With help from handsome Detective Seldon, Eleanor examines the evidence. But she’s barely had time to write down her suspect list before Constance’s father is set upon by a bearded stranger on the golf course. Clearly there is more to this story than Eleanor first thought, but can she catch the real killer before the wedding turns into her wake?

A delightfully gripping historical cozy whodunnit full of intrigue and wit. Fans of T E Kinsey, Agatha Christie and Lee Strauss will be totally charmed.
