Murder At The Summer Fete - Victoria Walters || Blog Tour


A fete worse than death…

After finding the killer of Lucy Roth six months ago, life has settled back to normal for bookshop owner, Nancy Hunter, and her grandmother, Jane. 
The annual Dedley End village fete is just around the corner, and Nancy is delighted when bestselling author, Thomas Green, agrees to launch his first new novel in ten years there. But then a series of sinister events lead Nancy to realise someone is trying to sabotage their fete, so she, along with Jane and their journalist friend Jonathan, must turn detective to discover who isn’t at all thrilled about the return of Thomas Green. 
When a body is discovered at the summer fete, the death scene mirroring that in Thomas’ latest bestseller, they realise that there’s another killer in Dedley End, but can they outsmart someone who appears to have pulled off the perfect crime? The clues are right under Nancy and Jane’s noses, if only they can find them. Because the answers to life’s questions can always be found in a book…! 

A twisty, unputdownable cozy mystery that fans of Richard Osman, S.J. Bennett and The Marlow Murder Club will love.

I loved the first book in this series, it was the perfect introduction to cozy mystery for me so i was super excited to be able to join in on the blog tour for this one! I know its been a while since i did a post but this book was just great! 

Life is just settling down Nancy Hunter and she is looking forward to the summer fete in the village with her first organised author talk. Thomas Green is promoting his final book after a ten year break and he is returning to his home to do so. Everyone is looking forward to it apart from one person, it appears someone is trying to sabtoage the fete. Destorying posters with Thomas' name on, leaving notes and all appearing to threaten Thomas Green. 

Nany and her grandmother along with their friend Jonathon set about letting Thomas Green know and trying everything they can to put safety measures in place although Thomas is not worried, Nancy certainly is. 

However, a body is discovered at the summer Fete and the scene seems to mirror Thomas Greens latest novel.  Which is someone who commits the perfect crime - it all seems wrapped but Nancy isnt so sure - can she find answers? 

I simply thought this was great! I did guess the main plot points early on but i loved reading it and seeing how everything unfolded. How Nancy once again could see what others couldnt. This is a great read, its intiruging enough that you want to keep reading. Its cozy enough that you feel content and comfy reading it and its lovely enough that you will finish the book with a smile on your face. The characters of Nancy, Jane and Jonathon you just root for, they are heartwarming with lovely core values and it makes you want to support them.
