ABOUT THIS BOOK
A fete worse than death…
After finding the killer of Lucy Roth six months ago, life has settled back to normal for bookshop owner, Nancy Hunter and her grandmother, Jane. The annual Dedley End village fete is just around the corner, and Nancy is delighted when bestselling author, Thomas Green, agrees to launch his first new novel in ten years there.
But then a series of sinister events lead Nancy to realise someone is trying to sabotage their fete, so she, along with Jane and their journalist friend Jonathan, must turn detective to discover who isn’t at all thrilled about the return of Thomas Green.
When a body is discovered at the summer fete, the death scene mirroring that in Thomas’ latest bestseller, they realise that there’s another killer in Dedley End, but can they outsmart someone who appears to have pulled off the perfect crime?
The clues are right under Nancy and Jane’s noses, if only they can find them. Because the answers to life’s questions can always be found in a book…!
We are back in Dedley End, where for the last six months things have been quiet in the village, and Nancy and her grandmother Jane have focused on their lovely bookshop and their friends. With the summer fete coming up, it's all hands on deck and all eyes will be on their celebrity quest speaker, Thomas Green, a hugely successful crime writer that Nancy has organised to take part. But when someone defaces one of Thomas Green's pictures in the bookshop and threats are made against his safety, Nancy cannot help but worry that history may be about to repeat itself and Thomas could be in danger. And when a body is discovered on the day of the fete, Nancy, Jane, and Jonathan will have to don their detective hats once again to catch a killer. And just when Nancy and the community think that they can forget about the Roth family, a few familiar faces return to the village which is sure to make everyone feel on edge.
I loved the first book in this series (Murder at the House on the Hill) so I could not wait to return to this quaint village with its wonderful collection of quirky characters. While Nancy and the gang do not want any harm to come to anyone, they cannot help but be a little excited at the prospect of solving another mystery. With plenty of twists and turns, misdirections and secrets, MURDER AT THE SUMMER FETE does not disappoint and I didn't want to put this book down, and I enjoyed it even more than the first book as I got to know Nancy and everyone on a deeper level and felt more connected to them.
A fantastic cosy mystery with every component that you could possibly want, MURDER AT THE SUMMER FETE by Victoria Walters is an amazing read, and while it can be read independently, I fully recommend buying both books in the series as they are simply wonderful.
