Hi guys! I cannot quite believe that it’s the first of August tomorrow – where is this year going?!
Today I’m taking part in the blog tour for Death Plays a part by Vivian Conroy.
With high tide comes murder…
When her beloved London theatre closes for renovations, costume maker Guinevere is excited to start a job at Cornisea castle, a centuries-old keep on a small tidal island off the coast of Cornwall. Imagine a whole summer full of stories of hidden treasures, fab food and long walks with her perky dachshund Dolly.
But when a reenactment of a medieval trial in the castle dungeons ends in real-life murder, and accusations threaten the castle’s future, Guinevere and Dolly dig deep into the island community’s best-kept secrets to unmask the killer and save their Cornish summer.
A new book series from Viv. A great read in an even greater setting, I’m sure this series will be as good as the others. I love the addition of Dolly and nothing is given away. Dolly herself, is a good sleuth! A perfect read for those that love Miss Marple and ‘cosy crime’ books.
I’m a new fan of Viv’s works. Firstly, I pretty much love her covers. The design of them are gorgeous! And definitely something you’d want to leave lying around on your coffee table for all to see.
I do love a good mystery book and this one is definitely a mystery – it gives nothing away! I took me till right up to the end to actually guess ‘who-dunnit’ as we were given clues and misleading information by the characters throughout – talk about a cat and mouse game!
Dolly (the dachshund) is a wonderful little character and brings a lovely aspect to the story – well worth her place on the front cover!
The tour has taken part all throughout July so be sure to catch up on any blog posts you may have missed!
