A Corpse in the Country (The Izzy Palmer Mysteries Book 2) Kindle Edition
Izzy Palmer has always wanted to investigate a country house mystery, she just never dreamed of getting paid £100,000 for the trouble.
Financial tycoon Aldridge Porter was a hard-headed businessman and now he's a stiff-muscled corpse hanging in his library. Each of his children had a reason to want their miserly father out of the way, but was it the golden child, the underachiever, the playboy, the vamp or the waif who stuck the knife in? Unless, of course, the butler did it.
Izzy will need to call on everything that her obsession with detective fiction has taught her to uncover the secrets of Vomeris Hall and the eccentric family who lives there.
“A Corpse in the Country” is the second book in The Izzy Palmer Mysteries. It’s another fast-paced and funny whodunit that delivers a contemporary spin on golden-age crime fiction. If you like the intrigue of Agatha Christie mixed with the humour of Helen Fielding, then this is the series for you.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
I found this book thoroughly enjoyable, I love the main character Izzy (surely it's Miranda :)). The quirky writing, great characters and most importantly the story held me throughout.
I look forward to reading many more.

Your heroine’s quirky - but she’s not as funny as she thinks she is. The way she goes round the suspects again and again could get very tedious, very quickly. Written in the first person means it’s all very one-dimensional, and I really don’t need Izzy-Brain conversations. I shall persevere, as I’ve read worse early efforts that improved out of all recognition.
