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

Post WWII #CosyCrime #MurderMystery – Daggers at the Country Fair by Catherine Coles

My Review:

In her village, Martha Miller helped solve a murder mystery
She assumed that was it, something for her history.
However, this leads to an invitation to the Winteringham Country Fair,
As guest of honour, officially opening it there!

She travels with the vicar, her sister and friends
Never foretelling how that fateful day would end.
She's anticipating eating cream teas and having fun,
Not another murder requiring sleuthing to be done.

Finding the body of a young girl is such a shock
Though it seems even more so for the Doc.
What happened to this young girl, why don't her family care
What are the secrets they're reluctant to share?

Get ready for murder and secrets concealed,
With blackmail, betrayal and affairs revealed.
There's also a potential illicit romance,
Though neither seem prepared to give it a chance.

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

Synopsis:

Winteringham Village 1947

Let the investigation commence!

As a thank you for her previous brilliant crime solving, amateur sleuth, Martha Miller is guest of honour at the Winteringham Country Fair. However, this time she is looking forward to simply judging dog shows and eating cream teas rather than apprehending a killer!

And Martha is just beginning to enjoy spending quality time with Vicar Luke Walker away from the prying eyes and gossips of her own village, when disaster strikes, and the local teenage femme fatale is found stabbed to death behind the tea tent by Martha’s trusted red setter Lizzie!

But who would want to kill such a young girl and why? Someone in the village has secrets to hide and it seems Martha and Luke have another case to solve!
