Death At The Seaside Book Blog Tour

Nothing ever happens in August, and tenacious sleuth Kate Shackleton deserves a break. Heading off for a long-overdue holiday to Whitby, she visits her school friend Alma who works as a fortune teller there. 
Kate had been looking forward to a relaxing seaside sojourn, but upon arrival discovers that Alma's daughter Felicity has disappeared, leaving her mother a note and the pawn ticket for their only asset: a watch-guard. What makes this more intriguing is the jeweller who advanced Felicity the thirty shillings is Jack Phillips, Alma's current gentleman friend.
Kate can't help but become involved, and goes to the jeweller's shop to get some answers. When she makes a horrifying discovery in the back room, it soon becomes clear that her services are needed. Met by a wall of silence by town officials, keen to maintain Whitby's idyllic fa├žade, it's up to Kate - ably assisted by Jim Sykes and Mrs Sugden - to discover the truth behind Felicity's disappearance.
And they say nothing happens in August . .

I'm delighted to taking part in the book blog tour for Death At The Seaside by Frances Brody. I love my murder mysteries, otherwise known as cozy crime, so when I was approached to hook up with this tour I couldn't believe my luck.
So what's the book about?

Kate Shackleton decides it's time for a well earned rest and heads to the lovely coastal destination of Whitby. On arrival she discovers that her friend's daughter is missing and a jeweller who paid Felicity, the daughter, a sum of money. But on finding that same jeweller dead out the back of his store, it becomes clear that the local constabulary need all the help they can get from Kate and detecting services.

This well paced novel takes you on a journey to discover the truth behind Felicity's disappearance, amongst some other key elements in the story. It doesn't take long to become utterly absorbed into the Whitby scene as Kate unravels the mysteries behind the current events surrounding the death of the local jeweler.

It's hard to imagine such cunning events can happen in such an idyllic coastal town but nevertheless the plot easily entertains you with wit, surprises and of course, death. Frances Brody effortlessly glides from one scene to the next keeping the storyline going and your mind completely filled with clues, logic and murder.

This is a book I have thoroughly enjoyed  and am grateful for the opportunity to share my thoughts with you on this latest release from Frances Brody. Death At The Seaside is out now so hop through the link below to buy your copy.
