I’ve had A Spoonful of Murder by J.M. Hall on my TBR for several months so when the chance to bump it and review it for My Weekly, I jumped at the chance.
Published by Harper Collins imprint Avon on 17th March 2022, A Spoonful of Murder is available for purchase through the links here.
A Spoonful of Murder
Introducing the three unlikeliest sleuths you’ll ever meet…
Every Thursday, three retired school teachers have their ‘coffee o’clock’ sessions at the Thirsk Garden Centre café.
But one fateful week, as they are catching up with a slice of cake, they bump into their ex-colleague, Topsy.
By the next Thursday, Topsy’s dead.
The last thing Liz, Thelma and Pat imagined was that they would become involved in a murder.
But they know there’s more to Topsy’s death than meets the eye – and it’s down to them to prove it…
Sit down with a cup of tea and this perfectly witty, page-turning cosy crime novel. Fans of Agatha Christie, Death in Paradise and Midsomer Murders will be hooked from the very first page.
My Review of A Spoonful of Murder
My full review of A Spoonful of Murder can be found on the My Weekly website here.
However, here I can say that A Spoonful of Murder is a delightful introduction to a set of warm, quirky characters whom I hope we see again in future books. A Spoonful of Murder is an engaging and hugely entertaining story that I thoroughly enjoyed.
