Great start to this new English set mystery series

Dead in the Water (Scarlet Cove #1)Dead in the Water by Agatha Frost

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Very different in feeling than the Peridale Cafe mysteries but still a cracking good tale with enough of a little twist and a couple of red herrings thrown in.

I liked Liz, she’s a believable heroine and didn’t feel like she was omnipotent, I liked the background created for her and the extra instincts she had from being a former police officer.

I did have a little chuckle that the occupations of what I suspect will be Liz’s potential new love interest and her own are the opposite way round from Julia and Barker in Agatha’s other mystery series.

I liked the seaside setting, although for me it felt very Robin Hood’s Bay with the twisty streets than a South Coast village. I liked meeting the people and hope to see more of Nancy and I felt really sorry for Christopher, so I hope he gets a happier fate along the way.
