Today I am bringing you a review of Beverley Watt's Cozy Mystery Short A Murderous Valentine. This was sent to me to review and I am so pleased to tell you how wonderful it was. This cozy short is just over 100 pages and filled with wit, humor and brilliant characters. Some fantastic lines that will stay with you too. The retired Admiral, his somewhat Loyal friend and their partners set off on what was to be a romantic weekend and takes a lovely and yet not overly predictable turn for the worse. This entire storyline was easy to picture, quite plausible and very intriguing to read. It was fun and not easy to put down. I enjoyed this very much.
"A lovely, relaxing, funny read with shades of Agatha thrown in..."Admiral Charles Shackleford’s retirement isn’t going quite according to plan. Having been instrumental in improving the lives of so many (his words – others might be inclined to call it something slightly different), he's struggling to reignite the spark in his own love life with the feisty Mabel.Short on ideas, he decides to gatecrash his much put upon best friend Jimmy Noon’s Valentine idea and ends up in the middle of a murder mystery weekend where real murder is on someone else’s script.As the weather closes in, the guests are stranded in a hotel harbouring an unknown killer. With no possibility of the police arriving any time soon, the Admiral and Jimmy have no option but to join forces in an attempt to uncover the Murderous Valentine.The unstoppable duo may be more Laurel and Hardy than Holmes and Watson, but can they catch a murderer…?This humorous cozy mystery short read is the first in The Admiral Shackleford Mysteries and follows British English spelling and usage.
