I enjoyed this book so much, especially as even though it is part of a series, you can read each book individually and apparently in any order.
Set around the racing fraternity, a fire and subsequent discovery of a body make for an interesting beginning to this investigation. The characters are so realistic as the bodies begin to pile up. A dotty, self deluded woman, brash husband, a simple brother, trainers with reasons and no alibies plus an earl and an aging film star. A real 'Who done it?' is slowly revealed via our heroic team of investigators.
There aresome instense and gruesome scenes, just as a police officer might expect, a thrilling hunt for a kidnap victim, a nice little hint at possible romance (or not) between Peter and his work partner, Fiona, and plenty of background to their complicated lives. Can't wait to read the rest of this series!
This time Peter and Fiona are handling murders among the racehorse trainers in the area — a world I’m not at all familiar with but one which is full of seething passions, professional jealousies and, it turns out, murder. With three people dead, Fiona herself is at risk. Can Peter save her?
If I got rather confused with this book it was as much my fault as the author’s: I was so keen to find out who did it that I carried on reading well after I should have turned out the light and got some sleep. If I’d taken it a bit more slowly I’d probably have appreciated the twists in the plot a bit more, although I did find one character’s internal monologue a little confusing and, if I’m honest, probably unnecessary.
As before I loved the dynamic between the two detectives, increasingly attracted to on a another with either able to admit it and both in complicated and unsatisfying relationships with others. This partnership has a long way to run, and I suspect it will keep me hooked for a long time, as each successive mystery is solved.
Her other characters are varied, from the commoners to the elite upstarts in the upper classes. Although the characters were great, maybe less is more. It did get a little confusing because there was a lot to concentrate on.
Febry uses sub plots to the best, they are not misleading but they do add to the mystery and the investigation in an ideal way to keep the reader guessing. The plot is well thought out and the pace is steady, which is needed for this great story.
Bells on Her Toes is well written, the narrative and dialogue can not be faulted. Set in a small village Febry has a knack of delivering the descriptive in a clear way that the reader becomes famliar with it.
I am now an even bigger fan of this author and I will thoroughly recommend this to any reader!
