Introducing the three unlikeliest sleuths you’ll ever meet…
Every Thursday, three retired school teachers have their ‘coffee o’clock’ sessions at the Thirsk Garden Centre café.
But one fateful week, as they are catching up with a slice of cake, they bump into their ex-colleague, Topsy.
By the next Thursday, Topsy’s dead.
The last thing Liz, Thelma and Pat imagined was that they would become involved in a murder.
But they know there’s more to Topsy’s death than meets the eye – and it’s down to them to prove it…
Sit down with a cup of tea and this perfectly witty, page-turning cosy crime novel. Fans of Agatha Christie, Death in Paradise and Midsomer Murders will be hooked from the very first page.
When three retired ex- teachers meet for tea they meet another one of their colleagues, Topsy with her daughter Kellyanne. Then Topsy suddenly dies, a large amount of money has been taken from her account, her daughter gone for the weekend and the three teachers– Liz, Thelma and Pat decide to investigate.
This wasn’t bad but this was OK cozy thriller. I have done reviews on cozy reviews before. The writing was good, there were funny parts that crack me up. But unfortunately, there were too much characters that I was slightly confused at some parts, which maybe it was just me. Liz, Thelma and Pat are likable characters and do like the fact that how these three old women get together to solve a mystery of the death of their colleague which they think is a murder. Overall, it was an OK cozy thriller. Worth three stars. Since the writing was great, I look forward to read more books from this author.
Many thanks to Netgalley and Avon for the ARC. The review is based on my honest opinion only.
