Mark Sallinger and his fiancée Belinda Lawrence were to spend some time on the island of Guernsey with Mark’s mother, Melba, Lady Sallinger. Belinda’s best friend Hazel had also been invited along with Belinda’s parents and a few others. The idea was discussion about the upcoming nuptials though Belinda was feeling decidedly uneasy about the whole situation.

When the gardener of the old Tudor Lodge where they were all staying discovered the miniature skeleton of a long dead baby in the ruins of a

MURDER ON THE ISLAND is the 6th in the Belinda Lawrence mystery series, and is every bit as good, if not slightly better, as its predecessors! There are some really spooky shenanigans going on this time. Belinda is infuriated when her future mother-in-law starts taking over the wedding plans – insisting on a huge society wedding against Belinda’s wishes. Expecting some support from Mark, she is very upset when he scampers off to the USA for an important ‘business trip’ leaving her alone to face ...more

In this episode of the Belinda Lawrence series the action takes place on the island of Guernsey at Lady Sallinger's home amid a selection of guests ripe in character. A vicious storm isolates the house and gruesome historical facts about the house are told around the fire. Very little of what is see is truly as it appears. This book was a shivery delight to read and one that wasn't readily abandoned. Personally, I believe this to be the best book in the series yet and I sincerely look forward to ...more

“...at least that would explain the weeping and moaning emanating from the woman’s bedroom at night. It woke her regularly and created an illusion which suggested disembodied spirits roamed the corridors. And if there was one thing Melba would not have it was disembodied spirits roaming the corridors...” 0 likes
