Though I love a good mystery book, I rarely find myself reaching for a cozy mystery. This one, however, seemed to be right up my alley. Death in Dulwich by Alice Castle was well worth the stretch in genres.
Beth is starting a new job, and as a single mom, she can’t wait to finally get herself out there again, and start living the life she always dreamed. Now, instead of solely doting on her son, she can fill her hours with meaningful work, but when she finds her bosses dead body during her lunch break, Beth may be the only suspect.
Naturally, Beth decides to take it upon herself to solve the mystery of what happened to her boss, even while the police are trying to solve the case, and pin the murder on her, as well. She wants to clear her name, and will do anything that she can to do so.
This book was so quick and fun, I really enjoyed getting to know Beth, she seemed like the kind of woman who I would want to be friends with, and she was very clever, rational, and didn’t give up even when the odds were stacked against her. I would want her to solve a mystery for me, if I ever had one, that’s for sure. I’m always expecting books to go deep into the psychological world, but sometimes that just doesn’t happen, though I’m not disappointed. I enjoyed this book quite a lot, it was interesting, and the mystery was creative and well thought out by the author. I give this book 5 out of 5 stars, thank you to the author for sending me this book!
