Today is my stop on the blog tour for Homicide in Herne Hill.
Beth Haldane, SE21’s premier – and only – single mum amateur sleuth, is really pleased to find a new friend at the school gates, in the shape of irrepressibly bouncy Nina. As well as a way with words, Nina has a puzzle she wants Beth to solve, centred on the solicitor’s office where Nina works in Herne Hill.
But as the mystery thickens, threatening to drag in not just Nina and her boss, but the yummy mummies of Dulwich, too, Beth is about to find out just how far some people will go to keep up appearances.
Join Beth in this fourth instalment in the London Murder Mystery series for her toughest case yet.
Homicide in Hernie Hill is the fourth in The London Murder Mysteries series, but it does stand alone pretty well. I, however, would like to go back and read the other books because I feel like the characters and relationships would feel even more realistic if I had known them from the beginning.
That doesn’t take away from how great this story is though. This slow burn, murder mystery is tense and intriguing. I enjoyed the characters. They are real feeling, compelling and relatable. They are well rounded with realistic life issues.
I’m a fan of this novel. I would like to read the series in order now, to get an even better understanding of the characters. I highly recommend this one!
