After a whirlwind romance and dream wedding, the new Mrs Ramsforth is whisked away to an idyllic Greek island by her adoring husband.

But as soon as they arrive at their luxurious hotel overlooking the azure sea, Damaris is struck by the feeling she’s been here before…

Puzzling over the familiarity, Damaris’ honeymoon goes from unsettling to a complete nightmare when she finds herself standing over a dead body, unable to explain how she got there.

Now only one man can save her – fellow holidaymaker and former Scotland Yard inspector Jasper.

But even he starts to doubt Damaris’ innocence when he discovers that it’s not her first time embroiled in a murder case…

A Cracking Read!     Stars 5

 

I so enjoyed the first book in this series, and was very excited to get the chance to read and review the second – and, if anything, it is even better!

New bride Damaris Ramsforth is terribly in love with her new husband and is tremendously excited when he takes her on honeymoon to the Greek island of Kalos. Although Teddy comes from a wealthy family, Damaris has never had the means to travel before; why does their hotel seem familiar? With some strange goings-on, the new Mrs Ramsforth begins to doubt herself and struggles with her inner turmoil. Fortunately, former Scotland Yard Inspector Jasper arrives on holiday and sets his sights on working out what’s going on. Can he get to the bottom of things and save her sanity?

It is no surprise that author Vivian Conroy is an admirer of Agatha Christie; this novel, in particular, is worthy of the great Dame herself. This isn’t one puzzle but several, all entwined and very difficult to unravel – but never underestimate Jasper, the man with the logical mind. I couldn’t have worked out things in my wildest dreams! A cracking read and one which played around with my head for the whole time. An amazing book which all mystery lovers are going to love! I’m looking forward to more in this series – this one fully earns every one of it’s five stars!

My grateful thanks to publisher Canelo for my copy via NetGalley. As always, all stated opinions are entirely my own.

Meet the Author

 

x300  VIVIAN CONROY discovered Agatha Christie at thirteen and devoured all the Poirot and Miss Marple stories. Even more fun than reading was thinking up her own fog-filled alleys, missing heirs and priceless artefacts. So Vivian created feisty Lady Alkmene and reporter Jake Dubois sleuthing in 1920s’ London and the countryside, first appearing in A Proposal to Die For.
