Called in to evaluate the contents of his Tudor Manor House, Belinda and Hazel are confronted with a number of suspects who would benefit from the book the Professor was about to publish; a book he promised would re-write the history of St Thomas Becket who was murdered in the Cathedral in 1170.
Confirming the Professor was murdered proves to be a challenge and, gradually, as they get to know those associated with the Manor House, Belinda and Hazel discover another murder and an intricate web of secrets that leads them to life-threatening danger and finally to the killer, in this fourth book of the series (Summary via Goodreads)
I love the Belinda Lawrence Mystery series by Brian Kavanagh. There is so much to love !!! The books in this series are quick reads. If you want to get lost for an afternoon or day, pick up one of these books and you will be swept away.
A Canterbury Crime is the fourth book in this series and I can honestly say that this one BLEW MY MIND !! I have read this one as well as the previous three but this one was completely mind blowing !! The twist at the end along with some secrets that get uncovered will leave you in a state of complete awe !!!
I just love Belinda and her relationship with Hazel and the work that they do together which in A Canterbury Crime takes them to a mansion with a lot of old secrets. The owner who recently passed was working on a book regarding a horrible death that happened many, many years ago and before he could finish the book and have it published, he died. Belinda and Hazel are asked to go through the big house and catalog all the belongings and provide a price for what each item is worth. While doing so, as is their characters, they want to find the missing chapter of the book that is causing everyone around the author to act suspiciously.
If you read A Canterbury Crime, which I highly recommend, you will get to a part of the story where you will NOT be able to put it down. Kavanagh will have you so lost in the story that it will be impossible to close the book until you have completed the story. Secrets will be told and things will start to make sense and you will want to see everything to the end. You will be so lost that you will feel like you are sitting along side Belinda as things are uncovered.....
I recommend getting lost in the Belinda Lawrence series, you can easily get lost in the story but the trips are quick....you will go on a journey far, far away while still in the comforts of home......
