I do believe these Whitstable Pearl books get even better, this is the 6th one and definitely the best so far. I had no clue as to the end, that was a complete surprise. This had a different feel to it, more characters set at a Literary festival with super describing of the clothes worn so you could picture the people in your head. This books keeps you engaged all the way through. A brilliant ten out of ten from me!

Another fabulous book from Julie Wassmer, it was lovely to catch up with Pearl (owner of Restaurant and part time PI), her mother (artist and b&b owner) and McGuire (full time detective inspector) who is known by Pearls mother as 'the flatfoot '. This book sees the first Whitstable Festival to show arts and literature for the town set apart from the ancient Whitstable Oyster Festival. Of course, anywhere Pearl is, murder is not too far off..... Sorry, you will not get anything further from m ...more

I think that this is one of the best book in this series by far: dark, complex and not so foreseeable. or maybe it is just that I grow fond of the characters and I love to read about their story. I just would love a little bit more of Mike and Pearl, but ok, it is worth waiting hopefully....

Penso che questo sia uno dei libri migliori della serie fino ad ora: veramente complesso, drammatico e piuttosto imprevisto , o magari sono solo io che non vedevo l'ora di leggere una nuova storia. Mi piacere

I was expecting a cozy mystery and even if there're some elements of a cozy I think this book is darker and more complex.
I liked it, it's engaging and entertaining.
I liked the characters, well written and likable, the plot, and the setting.
The mystery was good, full of twists and turns, and it kept me guessing till the end.
I look forward to reading other books in this series.
Recommended!
Many thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for this ARC, all opinions are mine.
