I am delighted to share my review with you today on the last day of A Date To Die For by E.V. Hunter Blog Tour…Which is out now!
The start of brand-new Cozy Crime series! Welcome to Hopgood Hall.
An unlikely duo…
When investigative journalist, Alexi Ellis, falls victim to cutbacks, she and Cosmo, her anti-social feral cat, head for beautiful Hopgood Hall, where they plan to lick their wounds in the boutique hotel run by her old friends, Cheryl and Drew Hopgood.
A missing woman…
But when she arrives Alexi discovers Cheryl and Drew both distraught. Their close friend, Natalie Parker, who recently settled in the area, has gone missing. Alexi’s sure the woman has just taken a trip somewhere, but she still has a nose for a story and agrees to look into it.
A case to solve!
So too does ex-Met Police detective turned private eye, Jack Maddox. Natalie Parker had been using his sister’s online dating agency and Jack needs to find her before his sister’s business is ruined.
Reluctantly, Alexi, Jack – and Cosmo! – join forces to find out what happened to Natalie. But soon they discover secrets that someone desperately wants to make sure are never revealed!
Perfect for fans of Faith Martin, Frances Evesham and Emma Davies.
A Date To Die For is the first book in The Hopgood Hall Murder Mystery series it is a cozy mystery and not my normal genre but with it being the first book in the series and having read this author before I thought l’d give it a go. I am happy to report that it is actually really good and I was hooked from start to finish.
In this story we meet Alexi Ellis and her cat Cosmo. I loved that she is an investigative jornalisnt and those of you that know me will know I am a big cat lover so Cosmo stole the show for me. It made a refreshing change to have a cat in a story. Then along comes Jack Maddox an ex-Met Police detective turned private eye. Both trying to find Natalie Parker.
What a team these guys make both Alexi and Jack are likeable characters they gel together well. I felt like I was right there in the story with the authors decriptions. Not forgetting how much I love the cover. It is what draw me to this book orginally.
The story is mordern with twists and turns that keep you guessing until the end. For me it was an enjoyable entertaining, quick and easy read. Now I am left waiting for the next book in the series.
Many thanks to Rachel and Boldwood for a copy and for inviting me to take part on this tour. All thoughts are my own and not biased in anyway.
