Murder at the Country Club by Helene Dixon #BookReview #BooksOnTour #CozyMystery #Series @NellDixon @Bookouture #onceuponatimebookreviews

Today I am taking part in the books on tour and reviewing Murder at the Country Club by Helena Dixon, published by Bookouture.


Kitty Underhay is accompanying her fiancé, Matthew Bryant,and Bertie, his new cocker spaniel, on an outing to Torbay Country Club. However, the delightful day soon turns to disaster. Walking Bertie in the shaded grotto after an exhilarating archery demonstration, Kitty makes an unsporting discovery: the body of their host, Sir William Winspear, with an arrow in his back.

When the local inspector falls foul interviewing female witnesses, Kitty steps up to the mark. And she quickly discovers that Sir William had threatened one of the guests, dashing Russian dancer Ivan, who is dependent on him for patronage. When Kitty overhears a damning conversation between Ivan and his sister, the case seems clear. But the next day Ivan is disqualified as he is found face down in the pool…

The race is on for Kitty to find the real killer, but she must keep her head in the game if she is to outwit this cunning murderer. And when the final score comes in, will it be ‘killer: three, Kitty: zero’…?

A completely gripping, suspenseful and utterly cozy historical mystery! The perfect read for fans of Agatha Christie, T.E. Kinsey and Lee Strauss.

Kitty Underhay is playing doubles… with death…”

Another great mystery to solve with this 9th instalment in the Kitty Underhay series.

This time our leading lady is on the case when what was meant to be a leisurely day at the Torbay Country Club with her fiancé Matthew Bryant, turns into putting to use her amateur sluthing skills when she stumbles upon the body of their host Sir William Winspear, with an arrow protruding from his back!

I really enjoyed this book as is always the case with this series. Dixon always makes her stories feel fresh, has a lovely setting and they are just a joy to read. Getting to the bottom of this one was a fun ride and with another dead body, enough suspects and twists and turns along the way made, for a very quick and entertaining read.
