The Death Of An Avid Reader is Frances Brody's sixth Kate Shackleton novel, the series is set in the 1920's where widow turned super sleuth Kate Shackleton takes on every shape and form of mystery. The Death Of An Avid Reader is the story of how Kate takes on the mystery of Lady Coulton's long lost daughter she gave away all those years ago to save her marriage. But that isn't all that Kate has to deal with, oh no, she has a haunted library to deal with, and a killer on the loose and with the police's main suspect completely too weak to have committed the murder she must find the real killer.
The writing of this novel is delicious, I loved the way you felt immediately taken to Kate Shackleton's time and the descriptive way Frances Brody wrote this book opened your eyes to the world and adventures of Kate Shackleton.
I adore the book it really is a cosy crime novel, I wanted to wrap myself up in an oversized cardigan and sip a warm cup of coffee in front of a fire! I dont have a real fire place so I managed to curl up in a blanket on the sofa and lose myself in this book. It really as that soft gentle feel to it even though its a crime novel.
I highly recommend The Death Of An Avid Reader, those winter nights are coming and nothing is better than joining Kate Shackleton on her newest mystery!
