I hadn't read their first outing, but have enjoyed this enough to buy it next, and any sequel, if they continue to be as much fun. These two BFF are amazing, although there are times when Kit's behaviour makes me wonder how they ever managed to stay friends at all. Having said that, I'm fascinated by their interchanges, and also love how Val's encounters with the detective investigating the murder at the centre of this plot are developed into a potential romance, even while they disagree, and she pokes her nose into official police business. What's really clever is how, unlike as in most amateur detective fiction, he won't share details of the case with Val and Kit, and how the final solution works out - once you've read it, you'll appreciate that to say more would simply be a plot-spoiler.

This is not a story full of blood and gore, but follows pretty normal, well-rounded characters through the progress of a murder case, developing their personalities and relationships, providing plenty of speculation as to whodunnit, and still surprising the reader at the end.

An enjoyable and comedic who dunnit. Val & Kit are in their 50s and childhood friends. Here they investigate the murder of an acquaintance. It's a fun read but not going to set the literary world alight. I enjoyed the characters and would probably read another in the series.

This is the second book in the series and from page l was hooked. Very good thriller and again very humerous. Cannot wait for the third in the series of the Val and Kit mysteries.
