Hi guys, sorry I’ve been away for a while. Life got in the way for a little while with working on other projects but I have been reading plenty so expect lots of book reviews and related posts over the next few weeks!
As soon as I saw The Mitford Murders advertised, I knew I needed to read it. I’m a keen crime novel reader and I love an old fashioned murder mystery.
I was lucky enough to receive this book for Christmas and it was my first book of 2018. Beautifully written and full of twists and turns, I’m looking forward to passing this book on to my friends – after all, sharing is caring, am I right?
Set in 1919, The Mitford Murders tells the story of Louisa Cannon who dreams of escaping her life with her mother and uncle, an abusive drunk. She lives in London making ends meet cleaning laundry with her mother.
When she is offered a place as a governess away from the city, she escapes by train and inadvertently becomes involved in the quest to uncover who murdered Florence Nightingale Shore, goddaughter of Florence Nightingale, who was murdered on that very train.
I thoroughly enjoyed reading The Mitford Murders as it is rich in historical detail, likeable characters and there are plenty of twists that you won’t see coming.
Even more exciting, this book is the first in a series and I really can’t wait to read more!
