MURDER, MYSTERY…AND MARROWS
Some people would describe Beattie Bramshaw as a pillar of the community. Many would applaud her numerous successes in the bakery competition at the annual village show. A small number might say, if pushed, that they find her a little on the bossy side. And one or two might just whisper the words ‘interfering’ and ‘busybody’ behind her back.
But no-one would have her down as a murderer.
So why is she being questioned in Dreighton police station after being found in the local allotments, at the dead of night, wielding a kitchen knife just yards away from where local lottery winner, Yvonne Richards, was found stabbed to death? And what does all of this have to do with Doug Sparrow’s prize marrows?
Marrow Jam is a comedy crime caper in the spirit of Agatha Raisin. It will have you chuckling all the way through many a cup of tea.
Today is my stop on the Marrow Jam blog tour. Many thanks to Rachel’s Random Resources for the chance to read and review.
My thoughts – I loved this book, it made me laugh so much.
The annual village show always provides rivalry and strong competition but this year someone has taken it a bit far. After a dead body is found in an allotment, the police think they have found their culprit in local resident Beattie Bramshaw. She is found at the crime site, with a knife. However as she pleads her innocence, more suspects come to light.
If you love Agatha Raisin and other ‘village’ mysteries, this is definitely the book for you. Great characters and humour throughout.
I hope this is the beginning of a series. Highly recommended.
