As I settle into my summer holiday, I imagine arriving at LUMEN, a beautiful, luxurious wellness retreat off the coast of England. So picturesque, a perfect place to unwind, or so the guests thought! I, on the other hand, had a heads up from the cover:
I rubbed by hands together with glee – this was not going to be a relaxing stay for anyone – quite the opposite in fact! Tension-filled and action-packed, with so many twists and turns, the atmosphere could be cut with a knife. Right up my street, I devoured this book and finished it wanting more. Whilst this was my first Sarah Pearse novel, it definitely won’t be my last – highly recommended!
I’m really excited to be part of my first book blog tour for The Mystery of the Lost Husbands, organised by Rachel’s Random Resources.
From the blurb…
Is murdering husbands an addiction or merely a bad habit? This is the question facing Private Investigator Cat Harrington when rich builder, Tom Drayton, dies shortly after his wedding night. Suspicion falls on his widow, Anastasia Rodriguez, the survivor of three previous ‘lost’ husbands. Two years later, Anastasia is engaged again, to Cat’s friend Angelo, an Italian snail collector. Angelo’s sister, Gia, employs Cat and the SeeMs Detective Agency to discover if her brother’s fiancé is a killer. The search for Anastasia’s lost husbands takes Cat and her team from Scotland to the South of Spain and on to Argentina. They have just a few weeks before the wedding to discover if Anastasia is a murderer and save their friend from becoming victim number five.
As you can see, this was a mystery I couldn’t pass up!
