This is the second book I've read in the Skeleton in the Cupboards Series, and there are skeletons galore! Griffiths-Jones has a pleasing narrative touch, and The Seasiders an endearing, domestic feel. The era of the 1960s is well-observed. The story oozes the lifeblood of the social mores, family dynamics and power struggles of the times. The plotting and pacing are excellent. There is never a dull moment! Lots of lesser mysteries are solved along the way, yet it is the mystery at the heart of the novel, the one concerning the main characters, Grace and Dick, that packs the punch.
