Publisher's Summary

Eve Mallow’s stay at the luxurious Abbey Hotel takes a turn for the suspicious when the owner is murdered - leaving Eve surrounded by suspects! 

Saxford St Peter is Eve Mallow’s beloved home, but she can’t resist the chance to spend a weekend in the nearby Abbey Hotel, famed for its glamorous owner, Debra Moran, and an array of celebrity guests. For a confirmed people-watcher like Eve, it’s perfect: She can observe the rich and famous while sipping tea in the gardens, her faithful dachshund, Gus, by her side. 

But her relaxing break takes a shocking turn when Debra is found lying dead in the shadowy woods around the hotel. One of Eve’s fellow guests didn’t come to the Abbey for fine food and delightful décor - but to kill. 

When the investigation gets underway, Eve finds herself trapped with a wide range of suspects. Could it be Debra’s new friend, Harper, who inherits everything? Her ex-husband, Chester, still seething over their messy divorce? Or her estranged sister, Amelia, who came hoping for reconciliation, only for Debra to shut the door in her face? 

As Eve roams the hotel, searching for clues and hunting down alibis, she uncovers a whole host of secrets. But can she find the truth before the killer brings her holiday to a deadly end?

Don’t bother with this one!

Narrated in a sing song voice, plot is thin and there are too many characters to keep track of.

A bit long

Was thoroughly tired of the characters by the book's end. The story limped along rather than sped along.

A fab series

The Eve Mallow Mysteries are proving to be completely addictive!
In this episode, Eve is staying at the Abbey Hotel where, unfortunately, a murder occurs. She meets a whole host of unlikeable characters and any of them could quite easily have been the murderer. It did keep me guessing.
I like it when Eve is supported by her friends and I was happy that my favourite characters were not far away in this story. Robin is becoming a firm favourite and even Gus the dog approves of him. I'm intrigued by his back story and I'm sure it will bring plenty of drama in time.

This is a really entertaining cosy mystery series and I recommend reading it from the beginning.

just not very good.....

Eve Mallow is a nosey busybody and not very likeable. She seemed to stumble across the culprit so no real detecting there.
Don't expect too much.

A bit slow for me.

I found this story slow and a bit boring at times. Not helped by the narrator! Might have been more listenable if read by someone who's voice did not sound like she was reading to a class of primary school children.
