So it came as a very pleasant surprise to get drawn into this story, and for the Am Dram to disappear into the background.
I thought it was an interesting plot, nicely drawn characters (I see someone else describes them as cliched, I disagree. In particular I found one character, a bit of a psychic, very credibly portrayed and avoiding the Madame Arcati model completely)
I think I've been hooked now, as on the Kindle version the first chapter of the next book in the series was sneakily tagged on the end, so I've bought that now. And I've a feeling that as a 67 year old male I'm not even in the target audience!
It is a well written book, there is lots and lots of dialogue, most of which didn’t really advance the story.
If you are looking for fast paced story, with action and drama, this is not the book for you.
If you fancy a rather slow and very gentle miss Marple lookalike, then it is a good choice.
Later books deal more with the difficulty of amateur detectives having access to the details of a crime, the scene or the people involved. I'm quite impressed with the way the author covers this issue as you could become a bit disbelieving of how amateurs could become involved in these crimes even if you giving the author the benefit of some artistic licence.
It is quite refreshing to read about the lives, loves and tribulations of a group of middle aged people. So often books seem to only concentrate on the young!
I heartily recommend this series of books to others who love the more gentle type of murder mystery. I can't wait for the next book in the series later this year.
Is it a ploy by some Publishers nowadays to encourage authors to "slip this in "! (excuse double entendre )So as to boost sales in certain directions .I am all for live and let live but object to page after page of Homosexual innuendo when their was no mention of it in the brief resume on Kindle. I only paid 99p for it on Kindle sale and to my mind even that was to much.
No more for me Lesley Cookman.
