Lady’s Slipper – Alison Gray

Much as I enjoyed reading Abby Foulke’s last mystery, Hibiscus Fruit, I loved seeing Abby in her native environment even more. Abby is still recovering from the events of the last book and still in mourning for her husband, but with her family around her and a new case to get stuck into, she’s getting through life.
The new case has all the vibes of a Broadchurch mystery and I loved it for that. An old case with questionable evidence; a new witness; remote settings, all made for a confident coherent story, full to the brim with atmosphere.
There are enough suspects to keep you guessing until the end and with a growing sense of unease building in the last half of the book, I read the last half in one sitting.
You can pick up the book at Amazon and follow Alison on Twitter.
