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!
The story starts with a body being found in a barn fire. DCI Hatherall and DI Williams are assigned the case.
They have to put a lot of pieces together to solve this mystery and the pressure is amplified when another body turns up.
Now with the genre in question it would be quite hard to talk about the plot without spoiling it so I’d like to concentrate on a few things that stood out about the book instead
The characters, the plot and the setting come together to make a very good rural detective mystery and the development of the characters was plentiful but also subtle.
When I finished the book I couldn’t help feel that the author must have spent quite a while working on the plot in order to make the discoveries/clues/twists happen at the most appropriate time.
The other thing I liked was the relationships within the book. It made the story a bit more believable for me.. I like characters and events that aren’t perfect.. life just isn’t like that.
I really would love to see DCI Hatherall and DI Williams return. I can imagine this being a very good series of detective books.
If I could say more about the story line without giving anything away I would but honestly I really enjoyed it. The twists near the end were prefect. Nothing felt out of place or rushed.
Again I’d like to point out this is not my usual genre what so ever… I’ve definitely got the taste for mysteries now.
I’ll be adding Diana to my author alerts so I don’t miss any new books and I’m already looking into her back catalogue of books looking for my next book to review
I’m trying to think if I would change anything about this book.. and I can’t think of anything that I didn’t enjoy or that I didn’t think worked. I guess my only real comment to the author would be to please write more..
