A cheating wife in a classic car drives someone to murder.
Interior decorators turned amateur investigators, Chloe and Amanda Carstairs have spent the summer transforming their client’s creepy old castle into a luxury hotel. But before the first guest checks in, the owner’s wife checks out – with the help of a bullet to the head.
When Chloe’s dad is accused of the crime, there’s no time for the ladies to drown their sorrows in the hotel’s mini bar. Instead, they have to contend with a sneaky blackmailer, an unsolved murder from the past, and a cunning killer with nothing to lose.
The second Chloe Carstairs Mystery is filled with the same clever twists and hilarious mother-daughter relationship that made Murder on the First Day of Christmas such a fun, fast-paced read for an appreciative readership. The mystery will keep you guessing, but as any good decorator will tell you, even a beautiful setting can’t hide the ugly truth.
Chloe and Amanda are on another adventure solving a murder after Chloe’s father becomes the accused. Things are not as they seem. Who is the real murderer? Was Chloe’s dad cheating with the deceased? Is Chloe’s boyfriend yearning for his ex? There was plenty of mystery and just enough romance in this novel to hold your attention! I haven’t yet read the first book in this series, and it did not detract from this novel at all. I didn’t feel lost while I was reading. I felt the descriptions of the setting were so realistic, that I could picture the castle/hotel and the grounds vividly. I liked the car references as well. The characters were a riot – who couldn’t laugh at the Bunny and Honey duo? This was a great cozy mystery and true to the genre–no graphic violence, no graphic sexual content, and no foul language. A light mystery with lots of twists and turns that keep you guessing! Check this one out! 4 stars!
About The Author –
Billie Thomas is the pseudonym of a Birmingham-based author. After the real Billie passed away unexpectedly at the end of 2011, getting MURDER ON THE FIRST DAY OF CHRISTMAS, the first of in the Chloe Carstairs mystery series, revised and published was her daughter’s top priority as a way to honor the mom who had given her a lifelong love of books. In her real life, Ms. Thomas works at an advertising agency, which might explain why she’s constantly thinking up ways to kill people without getting caught. She has a really cute boyfriend and an even cuter dog. Like MURDER ON THE FIRST DAY OF CHRISTMAS, its follow up, MURDER IN A TWO-SEATER are both filled with mystery, romance, humor and decorating – because these are a few of her favorite things.
