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

Brilliant 1920s Mystery – Death by a Cornish Cove by Fliss Chester 

My Review:

Welcome to a world of 1920s glamour and style
Skilfully portrayed to engage you for a while.
Add in Cressida Fawcett, a feisty heroine,
Your onto a story that's sure to win!

Cressida stays at Penbeagle House in Cornwall
Travelling there to attend a fancy dress ball.
She takes her good friend Dotty along, too,
Anticipating a fun week with decorating plans to do.

However, there's a murder and a killer to be found
And Cressida is determined to run them to ground.
With DCI Andrews brought in to investigate
Cressida searches for clues, she just can't wait!

Get ready for a victim with many possible killers
And other potential victims, its a real chiller.
Cressida's dog, Ruby, has serious roles to play
In helping Cressida solve the crime her own way.

There are great characters in this cosy crime book
And it is a fun read, definitely worth more than just a look.
I really enjoyed reading it and now look forward to
Reading more in this series - I hope you'll enjoy it too!

Book Description:

A seaside party at a Cornish mansion with plenty of fizz, what could be more perfect? But something fishy is afoot… a killer lurks among the guests, and only Cressida Fawcett can stop them.

When Cressida Fawcett is invited to stay at Penbeagle House on the Cornish coast for a fancy-dress ball, she is looking forward to sipping rum cocktails clad as a pirate, watching the red-sailed boats go by and relaxing in the sea air with her good friend Dotty. But before they can raise their glasses to toast Cressida’s former flame Lord Canterbury’s engagement, he drops dead in front of the horrified guests.

The local doctor determines that Lord Canterbury was poisoned, and soon Detective Chief Inspector Andrews is on his way from Scotland Yard. But Cressida is dismayed by the murder of the intrepid explorer who once asked for her hand in marriage, and she cannot simply leave the case to the police. Together with Dotty and her little pug Ruby, Cressida searches for clues only to discover that many of the guests have a motive for murder. Did an irate journalist or a bitter fellow explorer send Lord Canterbury on his untimely final journey?

And when a young maid is found dead, floating in the shimmering waters of the cove, Cressida knows time is running out to catch the killer. Could aclue hidden among some rather pungent crab sandwiches help her solve the case before there is another murder?

A witty and totally addictive cozy mystery packed with intrigue and glamour. Perfect for fans of Agatha Christie, T.E. Kinsey and Lee Strauss.
