Murder in the Dark

New 5 star Review: Murder in the Dark by @LesleyCookman

Another throughly enjoyable novel in the Libby Sejeant murder mystery service. Lesley Cookman has the abillity to really bring the strange collection of regular characters to life so reading this is like meeting up with an old friend. The problem with this is, of course, that at the end of the novel, you do tend to miss Libby and her friends and look keenly towards the next one! – Joanna

Something in the Blood – A Honey Driver Murder Mystery

Honey Driver runs a hotel in Bath. She also collects antique underwear.

As boss, she’s in charge one day and washing dishes the next, resisting her mother’s match-making attempts and managing multiple responsibilities – mundane, safe, and unexciting. Then one day things change. Honey lands the job of liaising with the police on behalf of Bath Hotels Association. No worries, she tells herself. Nothing will happen; then an American tourist goes missing and Honey is called in to help. Despite the on/off hostility of her police opposite number, D C I Steve Doherty, she sticks to the task. In the process Honey finds out that there’s more to work than washing dishes, and more to murder than malice aforethought.

Murder in the Monastery

The eleventh book in the Libby Sarjeant series of British murder mysteries which features a retired actress as the female sleuth and are based in the picturesque village of Steeple Martin.

Libby Sarjeant is invited to look into the provenance of a jewelled Anglo-Saxon reliquary which has appeared on a website. The nuns at St Eldreda’s Abbey are curious, as it apparently contains a relic of St Eldreda herself. Libby’s friend Peter obtains permission to mount a play based on St Eldreda’s story in the ruins of the original monastery called, naturally, Murder In The Monastery. And then, inevitably, a real body is discovered, and Libby and her friend Fran find out that this is not the first.
