Thank You Netgalley and the publisher for the ARC of this book! This review is based on my honest opinion.
This is the third book of the Hampton Murder Series but this is the first time I have read from Carrie Doyle and the first time I am reading the book. The book is based on Antonia, who owns an inn and who part time acts sort of a Nancy Drew solving murder mysteries. First of all, I really like the cover design of this book so five stars for the
In this book, Pauline Framingham, who is actually a wealthy but manipulative woman hires Antonia initially to solve the murder case of her friend Susie, who was murdered in the Franmingham’s tennis court back in 1990. The main suspect at that time was Pauline but due to her father’s wealth and reputation status, she was able to get away from the case. Antonia, along with Larry tries to find the killer behind Susie’s murder and at the same time, Antonia running and dealing with the drama in the inn. To be honest, I really enjoyed reading the book. It was cozy and the author did a good job engaging the reader into the story. It was also funny in some parts and nearly everyone in the book was a suspect that you don’t really know who is the actually killer! Overall this is actually an enjoyable and fun mystery thriller to read and you will soon hooked into the story. Four stars!
