Let Sleeping Murders Lie

 

 


Let Sleeping Murder Lie
by Carmen Radtke
Genre: Cozy Mystery


A wildly entertaining read for lovers of cosy mystery and romance alike’ 
Fiona Leitch, author of ‘The Nosey Parker mysteries’

Love can be the death of you ...

American Eve Holdsworth is living her quintessential English dream in a picturesque village in the countryside. Meeting an attractive stranger adds to the appeal.

But Ben Dryden is a pariah in Eve’s new neighbourhood, since his wife was murdered five
years ago, and he was the only suspect. Eve, who is absolutely sure someone as charming as Ben could never be a killer, is determined to solve the case and clear Ben’s name, even if it’s against his will.

Soon enough Eve finds herself in deep waters, and with her life at stake, she can only pray that her romantic notions won’t be the end of her …
My Review...

A fun read. Your perfect cozy mystery. This has all of what I call your “cozy elements”. A move to a new town, a nosy parker, a dead body of course and a mystery to be solved. But this is not a carbon copy cozy. It has plenty of mystery and lots of clues leading you from one place to another. The other thing it has that always makes me enjoy a cozy so much, is excellent descriptive writing. I felt like I knew the town as well as its characters. That always makes you part of the story. Sure hope there will be more to come as a series.




Carmen has spent most of her life with ink on her fingers and a dangerously high pile of books and newspapers by her side.
She has worked as a newspaper reporter on two continents and always dreamt of becoming a novelist and screenwriter.
When she found herself crouched under her dining table, typing away on a novel between two earthquakes in Christchurch, New Zealand, she realised she was hooked for life.
The shaken but stirring novel made it to the longlist of the Mslexia competition, and her next book and first mystery, The Case Of The Missing Bride, was a finalist in the Malice Domestic competition in a year without a winner.
Carmen was born in Hamburg, Germany, but had planned on emigrating since she was five years old. She first moved to New Zealand and now lives in York, UK, with her daughter, cat, and sometimes her seafaring husband comes home.
