Revenge on the Rye

Author – Alice Castle.

Before turning to crime, Alice Castle was a UK newspaper journalist for The Daily Express, The Times and The Daily Telegraph. Her first book, Hot Chocolate, set in Brussels and London, was a European hit and sold out in two weeks.

Death in Dulwich was published in September 2017 and has been a number one best-seller in the UK, US, France, Spain and Germany. A sequel, The Girl in the Gallery was published in December 2017 to critical acclaim. Calamity in Camberwell, the third book in the London Murder Mystery series, was published this summer, with Homicide in Herne Hill following in October 2018. Alice is currently working on the sixth London Murder Mystery adventure. Once again, it will feature Beth Haldane and DI Harry York.

The Blurb –

Beth Haldane, SE21’s answer to Miss Marple, thinks she is going for a carefree stroll on Peckham Rye with her best friend, Katie, and her annoying new puppy, Teddy. But before Beth knows it, she is embroiled in her most perplexing mystery yet.

Strange events from her family’s past, present-day skulduggery in the art world, and the pressures of moving school in south London threaten to overwhelm Beth. Will she be able to piece together the puzzle before her son’s crucial interview at Wyatt’s? Or will Beth’s insatiable curiosity finally drag down all her dreams for the future?

Join Beth, her irascible on-off boyfriend, Detective Inspector Harry York of the Metropolitan Police, and the dog walkers of Peckham Rye in a tale of murder, mayhem – and bloody revenge.

Today is my stop on the Revenge on the Rye blog tour.  Many thanks to Rachel’s Random Resources for the opportunity to read and review.

My thoughts – Another great book in the London Murder Mysteries series.  I love the character of Beth and her uncanny knack of finding dead bodies where ever she goes.

Her friend has got a puppy, Teddy, who is trouble on lead, so Beth finds herself going on dog walks with her.  It is on one of these walks that they (whilst chasing Teddy) discover a body in the undergrowth.  Beth being Beth has to find out what happened to the poor man.

So she embarks on another mystery but this time with her best friend and with two dogs in tow.   Another great read from Alice Castle, I loved catching up with Beth again.  Although as I said in my review of Homicide in Herne Hill, my favourite character is Magpie, fancying having to share a house with a dog!!
