Format: Hardcover
After Never the Bride and Something Borrowed, it looks like Magrs has finally found the real plot with Conjugal Rites. Not to say the previous two books were not five star stroies in their own right, but with the latest publication, he sinks right into the story, opening up with the return of the slick and smarmy Mr Danby and his strangely subversive radio phone in talk show. Also from the outset Mrs Claus is back in there and up to no good of course along with foolishly doomed lackey Harry the Cat. It's not until the anticipated return of Frank (eagerly by readers; with horrific trepidation by Brenda), to claim his eponymous rites that the plot thickens and quite literally descends into hell. Can hell be any worse than Whitby? Go ask one of Effie's dead aunts. Which one? Well by the end of the book you may know.

A hell of good yarn and one that promises much more for a whole string of sequels/new adventures. Who the hell is Mrs Claus anyway and will we see the return of Mumu Manchu?

GggglllllooooOOOOOooooopppp-ingly good fun!

Format: Paperback
Finally the third installment in the Brenda and Effie series is available and of course it is worth the wait. We get to learn more about the origins of Brenda and how she came to be were she is now and Effie's past unfolds a little too.

As ever the inhabitants of Whitby and the town itself throw up obstacles, create diversions and confusions; can there be a more colourful town?

If you haven't read the first two books in the series you would be well advised to order them now and get yourself up to speed. Paul Magrs is a wonderful writer and I cannot recommend him highly enough. The book is great, the only problem being that it is read all too soon and we are left waiting for the next installment - hopefully not too long!

Format: Paperback
This is the first book I have read by Paul Magrs but it's the third installment in the Brenda & Effie mystery series.

This is such a great read. It's quirky, fun and light-hearted and totally absorbing. The characters are brilliantly written and there are moments of humour that had me laughing out loud. The story has an old-fashioned charm about it and with the backdrop being Whitby, Yorkshire, the place Bram Stoker's Dracula resided, it has a sense of the macabre too.

Brenda is a lovable character who has retired to Whitby and gets into all sorts of trouble with her best friend and neighbour Effie, who comes from a powerful line of witches. Brenda is also the Bride of Frankenstein, a horrible monster in her eyes and all she wants is to live a normal life in Whitby and forget her past, which she has been running from for the past 200 years. Unfortunately, Whitby is also the gateway to Hell and so she and her friend Effie have to guard the entrance with their lives. This is quite a funny scenario as they are both retired ladies! But they can fight with the best of them, and many of the scenes has Brenda boxing the ears of her adversary!

There is also the supporting cast: Mr Danby, who is the host of a nightly radio talk show and seems to have the whole town hypnotised. Frank, who comes back for his Bride to be and his destiny, Brenda, who fights against their so called destiny and together they find themselves in Hell, and the evil Mrs Claus, who owns a hotel that is dedicated to Christmas all year round but beneath the surface there are more sinister goings on, including murder.

I was swept along with Brenda and Effie's adventures and enjoyed every moment. There wasn't one point where I was bored, it was just so much fun to read.

This series started brilliantly but has lost something. If you read it as a one off you would probably say it is very good but I just feel that the series has lost something. The first two books in this series were brilliant.

Brenda and Effie are my new favourite crime fighting duo. Whitby is the perfect setting for these other worldly events.
