Barker’s birthday goes horribly wrong

Birthday Cake and Bodies (Peridale Cafe Mystery #9)Birthday Cake and Bodies by Agatha Frost

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Julia’s at it again only this time things are much closer to home as Barker’s nephew Luke is strangled during the preparations for his surprise birthday party.

There’s all kinds of secrets coming to light and the twists and turns take the story off into some unexpected directions. As usual, I didn’t guess what had happened until almost at the big reveal and it was done with the usual Peridale flair.

These books are just straight up enjoyable, for all that they involve murders, and have a real lightness to them to stop all the death from becoming too oppressive.
