The next thrilling Ham-Hill Murder Mystery from bestselling cosy crime author Frances Evesham.
A winning horse. A fierce rivalry. A sudden death.
Belinda Sandford thrills to the cheers of the crowd as her beautiful grey racehorse, ‘Butterfly Charm’, thunders past the finishing post first at Wincanton Racecourse. She feels like the luckiest girl in the world.
But joy soon turns to despair as a stewards’ enquiry overturns the result and awards the race to her long-time rival, Alexandra Deacon.
When Alex is found dead in suspicious circumstances, a host of accusing eyes turn to Belinda and her distraught mother begs Adam Hennessy, her neighbour, retired police officer and publican, to help clear her daughter’s name.
As Adam, and local hotelier Imogen Bishop, dig deep into the murky and powerful undercurrents of the horse racing world, they lay bare the lives and loves of local jockeys, grooms, trainers and owners.
They soon uncover a web of secrets hidden within the spectacular Somerset countryside as they strive to find the killer in time to prevent more murders.
A brand new cosy mystery series from the bestselling author of A Village Murder, perfect for fans of Faith Martin, Betty Rowlands and M.C. Beaton.
A Racing Murder by Frances Evesham is the second book in The Ham Hill Murder Myster series. You can read this as a standalone with no issue. I enjoy reading books in order when I can, but rest assured, there is enough back story so you’re not lost.
This fun, quirky mystery that kept me entertained. I love the description of village life. It made this novel so cozy. And while this is a murder mystery, the story is lighthearted and an easy read.
As with the first book, I really enjoyed these characters. Their personalities stole the show and this is definitely a character driven novel.
A great read that I recommend!
