MAY DAY MURDER BY JULIE WASSMER – BOOK REVIEW


Here we have another Whitstable Pearl Mystery which is just as good as the others, this is my final one so I hope Julie writes some more pretty quick.
It was good catching up with Pearl, her mother Dolly and her son Charlie and not forgetting the lovely sounding DCI Mike McGuire.  They all sound so real I keep hoping I might bump into the handsome police detective when I am in Canterbury.
May Day comes but once a year and this one brings an actress returning to her roots to open the May Day festivities but before she can reacquaint with past loves and friends someone decides to murder her.
Can Pearl solve this one before McGuire or will he stick to the rules and work it out for himself?  Secrets and lies are hidden but who will they hurt when out in the open and who had anything to gain by committing this horrible murder on May Day.
Another brilliant story, well written with lots of local items about the brilliant places in Kent.  I again did not guess who did the murder, I could never be a detective, Pearl makes it all sound so easy the way she puts it all together.  Brilliant 5 stars for a great series, I cannot wait for them to make it into a tv series.

      Wouldn’t it be good if she has based him on a single good looking man! Lol 😂
