A Spoonful of Murder

A Spoonful of Murder


Retirement can be murder…

Every Thursday, three retired school teachers have their ‘coffee o’clock’ sessions at the Thirsk Garden Centre café.

But one fateful week, as they are catching up with a slice of cake, they bump into their ex-colleague, Topsy.

By the next Thursday, Topsy’s dead.

The last thing Liz, Thelma and Pat imagined was that they would become involved in a murder.

But they know there’s more to Topsy’s death than meets the eye – and it’s down to them to prove it…

Sit down with a cup of tea, a slice of cake and this perfectly witty, page-turning cosy crime novel.

Our Review

Every Thursday retired school teachers Liz, Thelma and Pat meet for coffee o'clock at a local garden centre. On one such excursion they bump into their ex-colleague Topsy. A week later Topsy is dead and the mystery begins. 

"To be involved in anything like a murder? Quite simply it was something they would never had set out to do. Something happened, then something else, and then something else on top of that. "

A Spoonful of Murder is a gentle, slow-paced mystery but not one I would consider to be boring. It was a tale of friendship as much as anything as well as a reminder that the elderly can be capable too. 

The writing style took me a bit of getting used to but once I did I found an enjoyable story.
