My Thoughts:

Murder At The Hotel is the second book in the Carmel Cove Cozy mystery series and reads easily as a standalone.

Where as the first book was set in summer time, this one is set in winter time and you can feel the cold seep in whilst reading it. I was huddling myself up on the sofa whilst I got further into this cosy but chilling story.

It was hard to feel any sympathy for the victim in this novel. If anything I felt sorry for Ruth’s friend who is wrongly arrested. The murder victim is not a likable character at all but this makes Ruth’s job even harder as there are so many possibilities of who the murderer could be, as nearly everyone had a reason to kill them.

This is definitely a very clever “whodunnit” as everyone was a suspect to me. I felt bad that in my head I was accusing pretty much everyone. I just wanted Ruth to hurry up and catch them so that her poor friend could be released.

Am hoping in the next novel there maybe the sound of wedding bells as am with James on this one and would love for him and Ruth to tie the knot. I mean who doesn’t love a good wedding?

Murder At The Hotel is another gripping read that I read in one afternoon. Am loving this slightly cozier side to the author. They have all the markings of a great murder mystery series with the lavish and idyllic settings. It also helps having a really likable protagonist for the readers to cheer on. A highly entertaining read that would be perfect for the telly.

My thanks to the author for an advanced readers copy of this book. All opinions are my own and not biased in anyway.
