Blurb; Katerina Rowe, a Deacon at the church in the sleepy village of Eyam, has a fulfilled life. She is happily married to Leon and her work is rewarding. But everything changes when she discovers the body of a man and a badly beaten woman, Beth, in the alleyway behind her husband’s pharmacy.
Drawn to the young woman she saved, Kat finds herself embroiled in a baffling mystery.
When Beth’s house is set on fire, Kat offers the young woman sanctuary in her home and soon the pair begin investigating the murder, with some help from Beth’s feisty grandmother, Doris. But neither the police, nor Leon, nor the criminals want Kat and Beth looking into their affairs and the sleuths quickly find themselves out of their depth…
Can Kat and Beth solve the mystery and walk away unscathed?
My Review; This is a brilliant start to a new series. Book one in the Kat and Mouse series. Very impressed.
Anita hasn’t let me down yet! I absolutely loved this story and well and truelly devoured it. Already looking forward to book two! Well read, fast paced and contains short chapters. It’s a race against time.
I felt so sorry for mouse (Beth) throughout the story she was a walking target at all times. If that was me I would be petrified but she kept her cool and got on with it thanks to the help of Kat. Another brilliant character I loved! But the best character had to be Beths nan I bloody loved her, not your average old woman.
I look up to these three characters trying to solve the mystery themselves and I must say much better than the police! Gripping. I felt I was beside those three character the whole way through. A real page turner. A well deserved five stars. Highly recommend. Loved it.
