Diana J Febry’s cosy mystery, Bells on Her Toes, is the second in the series following detectives Peter Hatherall and Fiona Williams as they deal with a series of mysteries in a sleepy Cotswolds village. It’s the third that I’ve read (I starting reading out of sequence) and it won’t be the last.

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.

I love this genre so expected the author to deliver good results and I wasn't disappointed. From the beginning we are introduced to the main police investigation team. We get insights into their lives, Detective Fiona Williams and DCI Peter Hatherall have a lot going on in their personal lives and it is worked well into the story. They are well drawn characters, ideal for many books to come from Diana J. Febry.
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 have thoroughly enjoyed this novel from start to end. I have to say that I read the author's second book in this series before this one and I wish I had read the first one to get a better context of the detectives and their place (Fiona Williams and Peter Hatterall ) Regardless I love the authors style of building a thriller with plots and pseudo plots, with twists and turns. I certainly didn't see the ending that held me tight to every page.

I am now an even bigger fan of this author and I will thoroughly recommend this to any reader!

I enjoy books by this author and I shall read more of them. This is a down to earth ‘who done it’ with interesting characters and a believable plot line. I liked the descriptions of the English countryside, areas I am familiar with. The only reason for the four stars is I got a little muddled with all the characters as there were quite a few of them, and like many authors – myself included – often names begin with the same capital letter and this can be confusing. A good book for a day at the beach so download it and lie back and enjoy the read. I did.

Bells On Her Toes is another book which has been waiting ever so patiently on my kindle. I'm so glad I didn't leave it any longer. This is an excellent murder mystery which kept me guessing until the very end.
The story starts with a barn fire on a country estate. A man's remains are found in the barn and it's initially thought it might be an insurance scam gone wrong. Perhaps a homeless man sheltering. However, when the man is found to have been shot, it soon becomes clear this was no scam or accident. As we follow DCI Peter Hatherall, his partner, Fiona, and their team's investigation, all sorts of secrets are revealed, but nothing seems to be adding up.
The characters involved in and/or suspected of the murder are an interesting bunch. Gladys especially! There are plenty of twists and turns and short chapters which make this a fast-paced and suspenseful read.
Bells On Her Toes is a brilliantly written police procedural, with mostly likeable and some very quirky characters. Peter is a very believable character. He's a devoted police officer, but has his flaws and personal struggles which can affect his work as much as he tries to separate his work and personal life. I really warmed to Fiona. There is an obvious attraction between the two of them, but one that neither of them seem to want to admit to. Will there be a sequel? I'd be interested to see what happens next!

I've been reading this series recently and have found all of the books real page-turners. This one, Bells on her Toes is particularly gritty and realistic. It starts off with an apparently straight forward drug-related execution murder, but what follows for DCI Peter Hatherall and his side kick Fiona embroils them in more twists and turns than a wriggling mamba. There are red herrings galore and by the end, when the series of subsequent murders is eventually solved, the reader feels deeply sympathetic to Hatherall and Fiona for the frustrations and time wasting leads that somehow always distract them from the real clues. As in real life, protagonists die before they can explain their role, so in the end we still don't know the reasons for all the incidents along the way, but that is real life. I found this an exceptionally compelling and unputdownable mystery. I just hope Diana Febry will write some more DCI Hatherall books so I can learn how the poor detective solves his personal problems, a running subplot in all the books that gives him a somewhat prickly character at times. It would be good to see Fiona happy too, so keep on writing Ms Febry!
