The Blurb –

Beth Haldane is on the verge of having everything she’s ever wanted. Her son is starting secondary school, her personal life seems to have settled down – even her pets are getting on. But then the phone rings.

It’s Beth’s high maintenance mother, Wendy, with terrible news. Her bridge partner, Alfie Pole, has died suddenly. While Beth, and most of Dulwich, is convinced that Alfie has pegged out from exhaustion, thanks to playing with Wendy for years, Beth’s mother is certain that there is foul play afoot.

Before she knows it, Beth is plunged into her most complicated mystery yet, involving the Dulwich Bridge Club, allotment holders, the Dulwich Open Garden set and, of course, her long-suffering boyfriend, Metropolitan Police Detective Inspector Harry York. The case stirs up old wounds which are much closer to home than Beth would like. Can she come up trumps in time to stop the culprit striking again – or does the murderer hold the winning hand this time?

Today is my stop on The Body In Belair Park blog tour.  Thanks to Rachel’s Random Resources for the chance to read and review.

My thoughts – I really love this series of books, having already read Homicide in Herne Hill and Revenge on the Rye, it was good to catch up with Beth again and see what trouble she gets herself in to this time.

This book sees her looking into the death of her mother’s bridge partner.  What I love about these books is how they are written, they always have a good story told well and are full of humour.
