Quick Review: Strictly Murder by Lynda Wilcox

By Crime Mystery Books on September 14th, 2014

Strictly Murder - Verity Long Mysteries - Lynda WilcoxThe first book of the Verity Long Mysteries series, Strictly Murder is an entertaining and fun little mystery from author Lynda Wilcox.

The estate agent’s details listed two reception rooms, kitchen and bath. What they failed to mention was the dead celebrity in the master bedroom. Personal assistant Verity Long’s house hunt is about to turn into a hunt for a killer. It will take some fancy footwork to navigate the bitchy world of dance shows, television studios, and dangerously gorgeous male co-stars. When Verity looks like the killer’s next tango partner, she discovers that this dance is … Strictly Murder.

There was a lot to like in this book, including the bit of romance (I’m a sucker for a bit of romance in a mystery) and the writing, which I found really easy to read. I read this one a while back, but one thing I remember clearly is that Verity certainly likes her wine! As for the mystery, it was entertaining and clever enough to keep me reading, and Verity was a delightful amateur sleuth.

I recommend you pick up a copy of Strictly Murder if you like amateur sleuths, cozy mysteries with a hint of romance, and a British setting. The book’s available as a Kindle ebook.
