Read some of the other reviews and thought "Does anyone really read these stories?" If they did, how do they miss the obvious.
#1 - An attorney is not accused of hiring a hit man to murder their ex just because she/he represented the confessed murderer in a former indictment, is not arrested, thrown in jail and held without bail, without some kind of tangible evidence , not just supposition. Are people really that ignorant of the justice system?
#2 - When you have a woman who is purportedly built

I am a fan of the light, easy writing ob Mona Marple and her fierce, enjoyable heroine Sandy.
This time she is involved in a murder case right the moment when she is coming home from her vacation with her boyfriend Tom, where she already had to solve a crime case in Scottland.

Without any time to breath, her advise is needed and despite trying to keep away and don't let her drag into the investigations, Sandy is soon

I was given this book for free for an honest opinion.

Bang! You’re Dead is Waterfell Tweed Cozy Mystery book number five and the most explosive so far.

As soon as Sandy and Tom came back from their trip there is another murder and Sandy is asked by the accused to investigate.
I really enjoy this series as each new book is better than the previous one. Sandy has finally embraced the fact that she is good at solving mysteries and some people are even suggesting she should open PI agency.

Another entertaining short but sweet cozy mystery by Mona Marple.
Waterfell Tweed is once again the charming setting for our main character Sandy to get caught up in a murder mystery. However, this time it was no accident that she started to sniff out clues to solve the case. She was summoned by the prime suspect! In order to prove her innocence, a well known female attorney asks for Sandy's help to find out who really killed her husband, a respected school teacher, since it definitely wasn't he

If she didn't, who did?

The story was going along ok, but there seemed to be a misconnect between Sandy and her boyfriend. It felt like they were strangers? I am jumping in here as a first book in the middle of a series but? Then as I came to the end I thought did I read this in my sleep? A BIG chunk was missing and it was over with no reason to be there. Left the reader fill in the blanks I guess?

This is the 5th in the series and the first time reading this author. The main character is Sandy and she is asked to find out who really set Ingrid up for Hugo's murder. She is really out of her depth here but she just keep going head and finally figures it all out. I enjoyed this book and look forward to reading more of her adventures.

Death to the right

This time it seams Sandy's in over her head, gangs, hit men,the mix is more complicated than a recipe she's ever figured out before .Can Sandy rise to the challenge let's hope so. Time to put your mind to work, pick up Bang!You're Dead today, see if you can figure out the mystery before Sandy dose. Kat 🤔😊

Fantastic addition to a great series

Loved the latest book in this series, so nice to see Tom and Sandy back home, nestled in with now familiar characters. Thoroughly enjoyed the mystery and trying to guess along with Sandy. Bang! You're Dead is a great Addition to the Waterfell Tweed series.

Good story.

Really good story but the editing let it down occasionally in places. Wrong names used a couple of times and a there were a few head scratching errors in there as well. Another read through would be my advice.

I found this book a bit on the slow side, I was waiting on the story line to get a bit more ZING, I know every writer is finding there feet, I look forward to a further book from Mona Marple. and who know's the book may have the ZING, to capture my attention.
