I am super excited to share my review with you today for Murder at the Country Club by Helena Dixon…..Which is out now
Kitty Underhay is playing doubles… with death.
Kitty Underhay is accompanying her fiancé, Matthew Bryant,and Bertie, his new cocker spaniel, on an outing to Torbay Country Club. However, the delightful day soon turns to disaster. Walking Bertie in the shaded grotto after an exhilarating archery demonstration, Kitty makes an unsporting discovery: the body of their host, Sir William Winspear, with an arrow in his back.
When the local inspector falls foul interviewing female witnesses, Kitty steps up to the mark. And she quickly discovers that Sir William had threatened one of the guests, dashing Russian dancer Ivan, who is dependent on him for patronage. When Kitty overhears a damning conversation between Ivan and his sister, the case seems clear. But the next day Ivan is disqualified as he is found face down in the pool…
The race is on for Kitty to find the real killer, but she must keep her head in the game if she is to outwit this cunning murderer. And when the final score comes in, will it be ‘killer: three, Kitty: zero’…?
A completely gripping, suspenseful and utterly cozy historical mystery! The perfect read for fans of Agatha Christie, T.E. Kinsey and Lee Strauss.
This is the ninth book in the series and can easily be read has a standalone because I have not read any books by this author until now. I must have been living under a rock all these years…Let me explain! I have known Helena for years. Back to the days when our kids went to school. I had no idea she was author until recently. You can imagine my excitement when I found this out, so I went straight in and read Murder at the Country Club.
Well what can I say Helena sure has hell does not disappoint. I was so impressed by her writing skills. She transports us back to 1930 and sets the scene for this awesome murder mystery……I loved it!
This book is full of stunning decriptions, I felt like I was right there in the story. With characters that spring to life, I could hear there accents/voices. It a well written and thought out story, keeping you guessing every page you turn. I loved Kitty and now I want to read more books in this series.
If you are a fan of Agatha Christie this book will be perfect for you. It is an entertaining, easy, summers day read. I throughly enjoyed it and cannot recommend it enough.
Thank you to Noelle for the blog tour invite and to bookouture for a copy.
