One day, Frances Evesham walked on a beach in peaceful Somerset and came upon a unique nine-legged Victorian lighthouse. Her first cozy crime story, Murder at the Lighthouse, was born. Now, she writes mystery stories: the Exham on Sea contemporary cozy crime series set in a small Somerset seaside town, and the Thatcham Hall Mysteries, 19th Century historical mystery romances set in Victorian England. She collects poison recipes and cooks with a glass of wine in one hand and a bunch of chillies in the other, her head full of ingenious ways to dispatch her victims - in fiction, of course. She's been a speech therapist and a road sweeper, and worked in the criminal courts seeing crime from all points of view: victim, prosecution and defence. Spending time in the dock and the witness box alongside witnesses taught her more about motive, means and opportunity than she could ever have imagined. --Este texto se refiere a la edición kindle_edition ..

I read this modern detective book with interest as I ... I read this modern detective book with interest as I live in North Norfolk were the 'marshes' and scenes were set. I could identify the places!!! Being of the older generation I have only one grumble but as these words are now used on Tv and no doubt in all modern books these words are acceptable to the modern generation. It was an enjoyable read and one was kept gessing as to did the crime to near the end of the book
A very enjoyable read Frances Evesham has created a lovely character in Libby Forest. New to the small seaside town of Exham on Sea, Libby discovers a body on the beach while walking a friend's dog. Pretty sure the young woman - who turns out to be a local celeb - was murdered, but unable to convince the police, Libby gets help from the mysterious Max Ramshore to solve the puzzle. The town seems full of interesting characters and I'm looking forward to meeting them again in the next book.
