T give two toffees for mystery novels She does however have a passion for real life mysteries and that passion gets stirred up when Et. This cosy crime novel started off promisingly with a dryly voiced narrative by a writer Ethelred who is facing the predicament of being modestly successful but only by dint of cranking out three different series of easy reads a detective series a romance series under a woman s name and a historical whodunnit series set in the reign of Richard II The problem is that his detective has become a character in his own right and is not co operating when Ethelred tries to write the next book in the series so throughout the story extracts appear of book beginnings which Ethelred deletes as unsatisfactory Events in his own life are interfering with his ability to channel the policeman s characterMeanwhile he has had to identify the body of his ex wife whom it seems has been found murdered at a local beauty spot He appears to have the cast iron alibi of having spent a few days in France around the time of the murder yet the police keep uestioning him as does his literary agent a chocolate fixated eccentric middle aged woman called Elsie who insists on leading an investigation in parallel to the one being conducted by the police It becomes apparent that there are a number of people who were swindled by Ethelred s ex wife even though he has remained friendly with her despite her adultery and manipulative behaviourI thought this was promising to begin with given the wry humour but I found the Elsie character a bit too irritating and forced somehow especially when the novel suddenly switched to her viewpoint and and of it was from that I also wasn t keen on the twist which started to loom and obviously by about half way certainly by two thirds of the way through The ending itself is rather deflating though I gather this is book 1 of a series and things are therefore not as they appear view spoiler the seeming death of one of the main characters hide spoiler
