#OBBigBang Book Review - Murder At The Rocks by Jill Paterson

Murder At The Rocks (A Fitzjohn Mystery)Murder At The Rocks by Jill Paterson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Although not as dramatic as Agatha Christie, this is a cosy mystery that will you have turning the pages. Inspector Fitzjohn is stern in so many ways and yet he has a soft side to him which allows the reader to connect with him. Then, there's Nick. The charming suave nephew of the deceased who ends up being the obvious suspect. But there is more to it than the obvious or else there wouldn't be a story.

The characters seem like anyone you would meet in your local town. But each has something to hide which is how the story becomes twisted and even more mysterious. I liked Jill's simple writing and it was nice to see the Queen's English in use.

Would I recommend this read? Oh yes, definitely.

Overall assessment:
Content: 4.5/5
Editing: 4.5/5
Formatting: 4.5/5
Pacing: 4.5/5
Offensive content?: Nothing too heavy but still PG to PG13

Disclosure: I received a review copy of this book from the author through Orangeberry Book Tours. I did not receive any payment in exchange for this review nor was I obliged to write a positive one.
