The Painted Lobster Murders by Millie Ravensworth

Not You Monty!

The Painted Lobster Murders by Millie Ravensworth is the second book in the delightful contemporary A Cosy Craft Mystery series. It can be read as a stand-alone but I recommend reading book one first for maximum enjoyment.

We rejoin Izzy and Penny as they continue to run their grandmother’s craft shop. They are a delightful pairing who work well together. They are wonderful sparring partners as well as amateur sleuths. They come up with innovative ways to make money in the craft shop, as well as getting into a few scrapes along the way.

Throughout there are repetitive ideas and catch phrases which adds to the reader’s enjoyment. Who can forget the masks they gave away at a ten year olds party and the repercussions! Also Monty the dog – a catch phrase developed around him, as he adopted the pair.

The Wonderland Murders by Millie Ravensworth


The Wonderland Murders by Mille Ravensworth is a delightfully fun contemporary novel and the first book in A Cosy Craft Mystery series.

The tone is light-hearted – think Midsomer Murders meets Death In Paradise – and it is set in a quintessential English town. I pictured it like the Shambles in York. All is calm and friendly until two murders happen in quick succession.

The granddaughters who are running the sewing craft shop are intrigued as they put on their best amateur super sleuthing hats and try to solve the murders. They bounce ideas off each other whilst also outfitting the local children in book characters for £5 for World Book Day.

There are some absolutely hilarious and rather bizarre moments – including fitting Arabella the pig for a waistcoat whilst reading poetry!
