My review of Murder in the Manger by Debbie Young – get in the festive mood with this feel-good cosy mystery! I am loving this series which is set around the key events in the Cotswold village of Wendlebury Barrow’s annual calendar. This one is, of course, set in the run up to Christmas and the school nativity play in particular.

This is the ninth Kate Shackleton novel from Frances Brody and another triumph in my opinion. Clues and red herrings abound in this book set in 1927 in which Kate, a private enquiry agent, is drawn into investigating the mysterious death of a theatre performer.
This is the second Essex Witch Museum Mystery and a wonderful mixture of scepticism and the supernatural. In this book Rosie and the museum’s handsome curator Sam, have been asked to look into ghost sightings reported at La Fleur an upscale restaurant in the City of London.
When Cara Burrows realises she has seen the allegedly murdered Melody Chapa she feels compelled to investigate further in spite of the potential danger. This is a well written novel that you will struggle to put down and will get you thinking.
This is a dark fairy tale of love and revenge; perfect for a dark autumnal evening close to Halloween. Enjoy under a blanket and light a candle.

This is an intelligent and interesting read, well paced with some great humour and action scenes. Recommended for Sci Fi and general mystery lovers.
