I thought the mystery had more depth this time and also gave one of the main characters in particular the opportunity to show considerable character development. It also features a ghost lion; surely sufficient reason alone to read this!
Maplemead Castle is a fantastic setting for mystery and a great backdrop for escalating romantic shenanigans (I won’t say more to avoid spoilers). However, for all the additional steam in this installment, I’d argue the most engaging relationships are still those between the fabulous female characters: between the generations of the Bittersweet family and between Melody and her best friend Marina.
You could read this book as a standalone. That said, as with all series, I think it’s best to read the books in order to get the most from the small details in the characters’ interactions.
If, like me, you’re partial to sweet treats, you’ll be pleased to know that delicious baked goods appear at regular intervals, just in case our heroine or her readers need a sugar rush.
I haven’t come across anything as funny and fun as The Chapelwick Mysteries for a very long time. Highly recommended if you’re looking for some perfect, light-hearted escapism with loveable characters, a cosy mystery and a sprinkling of romance.
Melody with her "magic eyes" has a job alot of people having difficulties with, she sees spirits, so does her ex. this means they tend to meet often on the same jobs, a fact that does not go by unnoticed by melody and her team.
Like the first book there a lots of comedy moments and it's a fun read. It had a mystery side to it but I'd say it's more a lighthearted read than a dark one. I can't wait for the next installment of melody and the gang. I'm dying (pardon the pun) to find out what - if anything- is going to happen between Melody and Fletch. I love Kitty French and her books, another great read!!
The 'Mystery at Maplemead Castle' is a place where ghouls rule and rival ghost whisperers duel. It’s bursting with personality, non-stop hilarity, and the eccentricities are just tripping off the page!
Chapelwick is the home of the Bittersweets, no nonsense ladies with an intuition for all things other-worldly. There’s the champagne flute wielding grandmother, a pancake flipping mother, a converse wearing daughter and her dog she lovingly named after a fictional vampire (I’m 100% convinced that pooch could have his own series!)
Melody might be the youngest of the clan but she has fiercely inherited her ‘gift’ from a long line of independent Bittersweet women. She embraces a contented sense of fashion offset by a lack of passion sense, at least where recurring mania for the journo-inferno that ‘lights her fire’ is concerned. Yes, self-control reaches breaking point as the Melody/Fletcher connection becomes feverishly intense and risqué humour positively thrives with their dialogue exchanges.
When she isn’t failing spectacularly at applying ‘Fletcher Gunn avoidance tactics’, Melody can be found sniffing out baked goodies faster than her one-eared, keg-bellied pug, Lestat, or chasing the next peculiar presence with her ghostbusting fellowship, who are every bit as quirky as she is.
They’re a cracking bunch of individuals, with the stress on individual! A strong cast is needed to cope with the unwanted, wisecracking visitors residing Maplemead Castle, and I’m not talking about the American couple who bought the property over the internet!Read more ›
