Brill 1920s Cosy Mystery – Murder at Waldenmere Lake by Michelle Salter

My Review:

This is a 1920s murder mystery,
Sharing events set back in history.
This time journalist Iris is hoping to make
Safe the Waldenmere Lake.

However, her plans seem destined to fail
As the council can't battle those from rail.
Plans for a convalescent home or a hotel there
Can she protect the lake, getting others to care?

With a battle to save the local lake
Iris is wondering what it will take
Getting the local MP and nature lovers, too,
Should help, she thinks, so that's what she'll do.

However much the fight is on
If the rail company win, the lake will be gone
What will it's draining reveal?
Just what did the water conceal?

Get ready for murders and mystery
In this brilliant cosy crime thriller set back in history.
There are twists galore
And clues too easy to ignore!

A fascinating read to keep you turning the page
As secrets, family dramas and tempers rage.
Who could the perpetrator be?
Read it for yourself and then you'll see!

For my complementary copy, I say thank you,
As I share with you this, my honest review.
