Revenge on the Rye by Alice Castle - Blog Tour, Book Review & Giveaway

Today, I am delighted to be part of Alice Castle's blog tour for her new book Revenge on the Rye, thanks to Rachel at Rachel's Random Resources ...... please check out my review below ..... and there's also a chance to win a copy of Revenge on the Rye!

Genre:  Cozy Crime
Publication Date:  17 December 2018
Publisher:  Crooked Cat Books
Estimated Page Count:  288
Standalone Fifth Book in the London Murder Mysteries Series

Beth Haldane, SE21’s answer to Miss Marple, thinks she is going for a carefree stroll on Peckham Rye with her best friend, Katie, and her annoying new puppy, Teddy. But before Beth knows it, she is embroiled in her most perplexing mystery yet.
Strange events from her family’s past, present-day skulduggery in the art world, and the pressures of moving school in south London threaten to overwhelm Beth. Will she be able to piece together the puzzle before her son’s crucial interview at Wyatt’s? Or will Beth’s insatiable curiosity finally drag down all her dreams for the future?
Join Beth, her irascible on-off boyfriend, Detective Inspector Harry York of the Metropolitan Police, and the dog walkers of Peckham Rye in a tale of murder, mayhem – and bloody revenge.

Revenge on the Rye is the fifth book in this cozy mystery series set in Dulwich in London and, this time Beth's friend Katie has a new puppy which they innocently take for a walk on nearby Peckham Rye ...... but when they stumble upon an elderly labrador sitting obediently next to his dead owner, Beth, of course, can't resist trying to find the who, the why, the how and the whodunnit!

From art world spying to grafitti art, from a naughty puppy to an older, well brought up dog, this is a tale of contrasts while Beth's normally calm and unflappable friend Katie is reduced to a simpering wreck, hiding from other dog walkers, while trying to train her new excitable puppy.

Beth's still juggling her work at Wyatt's school with single-handedly bringing up her young son, still seeing the lovely DI Harry York, and still worrying whether she's a good enough mum and where her relationship with Harry is going, she is so endearing and I can so easily identify with her and her insecurities.

This can be read as a standalone as there are no spoilers from previous storylines, though mention is made several times of Beth's adventures from the earlier books.

I really enjoyed this mystery, the writing was full of detail, so true to life, it's so entertaining following Beth when she's on the scent of a mystery, with richly-drawn characters, this is a must for any cozy mystery fan!
