*BLOG BLITZ* Murder in the Dark – Betsy Reavley ★★★★

Blurb; Without a motive, how do you identify the killer?

Imagine a quaint little bookshop. Outside the snow is falling. Inside the shelves are stacked with books by authors waiting to be discovered. What could be better?

When Tilly Edgely lands a position working at Ashton’s bookshop in Cambridge she thinks she’s found her perfect job. But one winter’s morning, when she arrives to open up, she discovers the body of her boss suspended from the ceiling, hanging by a rope around his neck.

DCI Barrett and DI Palmer are called to the scene and quickly find themselves searching for a twisted killer whose identity and motive are nearly impossible to trace.

But just when they think they have the murderer in their sights, another body shows up throwing the case wide open…

Who is behind the killings and why?

The police have their work cut out and key to unlocking the gruesome mystery might be found right under their nose.

But one thing is for certain, this killer will leave you hanging…

My Review; What an opening this book has! Wooooweeee! This book is bound to draw you in. Now I must admit I haven’t got round to reading Murder in the Book Club yet but this reads perfectly fine as a standalone with only a few references to the previous book. Don’t worry I will be going back to read it at some point, I promise.

I throughally enjoyed reading this one. Not your average murder, killing story. Different. Unique. Watch out the book community you’re not safe either. A fast paced, page turner of a read. Brilliantly written. A story you don’t want to put down. I could easily have read this in one sitting if life didn’t get in the way.

I did feel sorry for Tilly having to deal with what she saw, that would be hard for anyone. Highly recommend! A brilliant brilliant. A well deserved four stars.
