Description

The characters were really enjoyable to read, the relationships and dramas which happened throughout. This follows very closely from the events of the first book and it’s definitely worth reading first, as the events and characters are fairly central.

I just love reading murder mysteries like these - there are the three leading ladies, a filming in London, and lots of sleuthing in a locked room mystery setting and ahhhh it was just such a fun read. Praise for A Very Lively Murder'A truly entertaining crime novel in the Three Dahlias series, very much in the Agatha Christie tradition, and I hope this series will continue' Shots Magazine'Will please those who liked the opening book' The Critic'Fiendeshly clever' Bucks Herald Praise for Katy Watson'An absolute treat of a read with all the ingredients of a vintage murder mystery: a country house, mysterious dead bodies and three actresses all keen to catch the killer. Rosalind receiving death threats, a missing Casting Director and a hit-and-run death of one of the film's stars prompts another Three Dahlias investigation, to discover whether the events are connected and who is to blame. Rosalind, the original Dahlia, Caro whose Dahlia was the star of the successful TV series, and Posy who is bringing Dahlia to a new generation. The book has an underlying brooding feeling, aided and abetted by stormy weather and the setting in a country house in the Welsh landscape.I'm not sure how much longer the conceit can hold, and I'm not sure how interested I'll be if these shift to being One Dahlia mysteries instead of Three, but I'm definitely planning to give the next one a shot. I knew I would be in safe hands with Katy Watson and A Very Lively Murder was everything I hoped it would be! So in cases like these, you forgive the debut mistakes and if it's worth it, you focus on the positive.

We are also trying to tackle a pretty heavy subject here, where an old actor used to drug and rape young actresses. I am unsure what happened there, I might need to re-read the last part of 'The Three Dahlias' as for the life of me I can't tell why Anton hates her now and she is left out of the movie. You will need to have read the first in this series to understand what lead them to Wales for filming.Whilst this follows on from the first book where we are introduced to the Three Dahlia’s this can be easily read as a standalone murder mystery novel. There's celebrity drama, discussion of discrimination and abuse of women in the film industry and it culminates in a locked room murder mystery in atmospheric Tŷ Gwyn (the White House) during a storm. The ending wasn't a surprise; we knew it had to be one of a fairly small group of people, most of them not all that likable. A good 100 pages pass when we get a second death, this time murder for sure, as one of the old actors has been stabbed.
