A joke? A prank? Or something more sinister?
When the Exham-on-Sea residents are targeted by anonymous emails containing apparently harmless nursery rhymes, no one knows whether to laugh or shudder until an unexplained death touches the town.
Libby Forest, baker, chocolatier and Exham’s very own resident private investigator, alongside her partner Max Ramshore, set out to solve the puzzle before more people die. But when Max’s ex-wife arrives on the scene, ahead of Max and Libby’s long-awaited nuptials, things go from bad to worse.
With the town and their relationship under threat, Max and Libby need the help of the Exham History Society if they’re going to find the nursery rhyme killer in time.
Murder at the Gorge is the seventh in a series of Exham-on-Sea Murder Mysteries set at the small English seaside town full of quirky characters, sea air, and gossip.
If you love Agatha Christie-style mysteries, cosy crime, clever dogs and cake, then you’ll love these intriguing whodunnits.
Murder At The Gorge by Frances Evesham is a really well-written mystery. I was led to believe the bad guy was someone totally different. I love the twists and turns, and I love when I can’t figure it out.
This is a character driven novel. The story contains themselves of family, friends, and relationships. These characters feel real. I enjoyed following them on their journey.
This is part of a series, but can be read as a standalone with no problem. I loved the writing and the pacing and enjoyed this book quite a bit.
