Manuscript For Murder by Chautona Havig is a Christian murder mystery which I really enjoyed. It had me guessing from the start – who was committing the parallel crimes? Once again I suspected many characters but failed to guess correctly.
The lead character is wonderfully eccentric in her dress but with a heart of gold. I immediately warmed to her as she spread goodness wherever she went. She wasn’t holier than thou, she had a past but in Christ she was a new creation. I loved her kindness and her quirkiness. She reminded me of Angela Lansbury in Murder She Wrote.
I loved the references to Jane Austen who is the author of my all time favourite novel, Pride And Prejudice. References to other books and famous people were included too.
Manuscript For Murder despite being a murder mystery had a lightness of spirit to it – like a Hallmark movie in the middle of the afternoon.
A delightful and entertaining read.
