  • A Fabulous, Punchy Instalment

    Kate Johnson ’s new cosy mystery, Murder Most Cornish is an exhilarating read! Enjoying life in Port Trevan, Kitty Cardew has a part-time role on a popular TV show, and all is looking rosy, except that she is struggling for cash. Asked to help out at a murder mystery weekend in a Gothic mansion on the coast, she leaps at the opportunity. There, she gets to meet the handsome Ned Crowe, owner of Penkellis Hall, who is one of the most vexatious men she's ever happened to have met. Just as matters begin to get lively, a body is discovered in one of the bedrooms. Desperately in need of help to figure out which of their guests is the real killer, Kitty and Ned turn to Molly Higgins, a caterer and proprietor of her own café in the small town of Port Trevan. Not only is she providing the catering for the weekend event at Penkellis Hall, but she is also the only person who can help track down the murderer. This second instalment in the series is an edgier cosy mystery than most and as I became embroiled in the thickening plot I couldn't put this novel down, and just had to keep turning those pages. The beautifully developed characters were a wonderful assortment, each with their distinct personalities. Feisty and down-to-earth Molly made a brilliant amateur sleuth and of the rest, some I liked, others I wasn't so keen on, but they all had a valuable contribution to make to the story-line. Port Trevan and the surrounding country estate are described in luscious, rich detail, but one of the triumphs was the general atmospheric tone of the story. I also enjoyed the author's portrayal of the frequent claustrophobic nature of small-town life. The great pacing by Kate Johnson aided my enjoyment of the story as it propelled its way towards the revealing denouement. If you love a good cosy mystery with plenty of surprises and misdirection, then Murder Most Cornish is for you. I confidently recommend this novel. I received a complimentary copy of this novel at my request from Orion Dash via NetGalley and this review is my unbiased opinion.

    Thanks for your feedback!
