Chris chose to read and review Murder at the Lighthouse by Frances Evesham
This cozy murder mystery novella, with sprinklings of contemporary life lessons and romance, is set in an idyllic village on the UK coast.
Libby Forest, culinary genius and newcomer to the coastal area, finds a body on the beach. The police are convinced it’s an accident, she’s convinced it’s murder. And so, with the help of the mysterious Max Ramshore and a host of meddling or hindering characters, she sets out to uncover the murderer.
The plot packed a lot into a novella (in a good way), the characters were well drawn and the setting inviting. The ending was a little too lacking in signposting for my taste, but otherwise I found this an enjoyable little read.
