Chick lit, Mystery

Murder at the Playhouse by Helena Dixon

I have read and reviewed the previous two books in the series earlier on the blog : here. Despite mentioning several times that the writing style was not for me, I was lured into trying out this book just to see where the storyline for Kitty’s mother would go and on that front, I was not disappointed. Some headway was made in not just that but also in the relationship between Kitty and Matthew, the latter though expected was done in a smooth but interesting manner.

The crime was very different from the last two books and especially since Kitty is given sole charge of figuring out the culprit she had free reign to rush headlong into the situations. It is her luck that keeps her alive. Unfortunately for me, this time I figured out the criminal with the mention of one particular event because it seemed quite random for it to be described in that manner. An unknown woman has been found on the golfing green and everyone is claiming to not know who she is! The case has a lot of quirky, artsy people thrown in together, the rise of the individual relying on another. There are multiple dynamics at play in the background. It should satisfy those who are enjoying the series and for me, I will try to read the next one if I can because I would like to know about the mother situation!

Rating: 3 out of 5.

I received an ARC thanks to NetGalley and the publishers but the review is entirely based on my own reading experience.
