Unique And Engrossing
A Beginners Guide To Murder by Rosalind Stopps – wow what a roller coaster read, absolutely thrilling – I read with heart racing and pulse rising.
The plotline is unique and well executed. There are serious themes but they are sensitively portrayed.
All the characters were well drawn and mainly likable. They are an eclectic mix of seventy year old ladies, a teen, ex cons and a homeless couple – who all band together to fight criminal acts. Their suggestions may not always be lawful but their hearts are in the right place.
We are a product of our past but we must not let our past define us. We need to throw off the shackles of our past and live in the light of who we are and not in the light of who others have said we are. We need to listen to those who speak positivity into our lives.
The three leading ladies met over pilates and coffee but they forge a bond that will remain forever.
We get glimpses into the ladies past lives. In their early days of living in Britain, two of the ladies suffered from prejudice and racism as well as personal heart ache. They are all overcomers.
A Beginners Guide To Murder was absolutely engrossing. It was uniquely constructed and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I am looking forward to more from Rosalind Stopps.
I received a free copy from Harper Collins via Net Galley. A favourable review was not required. All opinions are my own.
