Murder at the book club has an enticing title, cover, and premise for a story!
The set up of a group of women meeting, books being the theme that they have in common.
What has led to the demise of one of the characters?
A true who done it style read, with a why? runs throughout the novel.
We are given a variety of characters that are individual, and like all walks of life, they set the pages alight within their own way.
Some you will love, some you might loathe, but you will want to turn page after page.
Not as dark as Reavley's previous books, but just as devious - I had no clue as to who had done the killing, their reason why. The setting is in Cambridge, which always ticks boxes and the author had a good sense of place with her setting.
I soon found myself tangled up in the lives of the women, and once the police were on the scene was wondering if they knew anymore than the reader. We are led through the book = through the characters eyes, and although an array of individual characters, they were easy to keep track of.
A fabulous easy read for crime fiction lovers, especially those who have a gentler crime pallet. However don't be too deceived. I would love to read this as a book club read, but possibly not the one in the book.
A great book for discussion, and a cosier side to Reavley, which shows what a diverse author she is and why I love picking up her books, you just don't know what she is going to serve up next, but it is always character led, dark, and daring.
Highly Recommend. A full on five stars.
