"Meddling With Murder" by Elle Campbell

My Thoughts....

This author gives the reader a story dealing with Cathy O' Farrell and Pimple  as they are owners of the 'Crouch End Confidential Agency' that was at one time called 'Helping People Who Would Otherwise Commit Suicide.'  As the story opens what do we find? Cathy dangling from a tree trying to get 'Fliffy' a cat down? I will say I laughed at that one. We find from the story that Cathy and Pimple will be presented with:" multiple problems include stolen bikes, a possible murder weapon, the sabotage of her friends’ new shop, drug-dealing yobbos targeting her children’s primary school and being forced to pose as the world’s most inept maths tutor. Worse, best friend Rosa hires her to investigate fiancé Alec and – horrors – Cathy’s husband Declan is intent on moving himself, Cathy and kids to the safer climes of rural Norfolk. Suddenly Cathy is endangering her marriage, friendships and her life to untangle these messes."  Along with all of this I will say that the story has some very interesting characters that all well developed, defined and believable helping to keep your attention because they will be so much going on. From several customers with no money to pay their bills to finally one whose case starts out very strangely...supposedly having lost her dog called Dukey....however, when the truth comes out...it was her all about her son....oh well, leaving you wondering what in the world was that all about!  At least it seems that there would be some pay for working on this case.  As this story unfolds the reader will see how the author presents a well written story to the reader that is rather a good one.  I will say I liked Cathy's friendships with  her friends...Henrietta, Isobel, Rosa, Janet and Shilpa at their WOWs [Wednesday Once Weeklies] and believe me when I say that each one will have their own story.  Also I liked how the author brings in the read about 'drugs' in the story so much so wouldn't Cathy want to move where it may be a little more safer as her husband had suggusted even if it meant leaving her friends?  I will say this story keeps on moving and by the end you will get a well written story.  To really get it all you will have to pick up "Meddling With Murder" to see how well this author gives the reader  a little mystery along with some suspense dealing with stolen bikes, drugs, guns and a murder.  Would I recommend? Yes! 


I received a copy through NOR  in exchange for an honest review.
