Story of Old | Death Plays a Part | Book Blog Tour

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.

Netgalley Review

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’ve already reviewed two of Viv’s books, which you can check out here and here. But Death Plays a Part is book 1 of her new series.

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!
