Capable of Entertaining,
This review is from: Capable of Murder (A Belinda Lawrence Mystery) (Kindle Edition)I really enjoyed this murder mystery. It was well-written and managed to convey an atmosphere of tension, dread and danger. There were several clever twists and turns that made it difficult to guess who the killer was until right near the end.
Belinda was a wonderful character--full of feistiness and courage and smart enough to know that something was fishy about her great-aunt's death. The sudden interest of several people wanting to purchase the cottage that was part of the inheritance left to her by Aunt Jane also had Belinda's instincts quivering with suspicion and doubt.
The story had all the elements of a good mystery--a secret room, a document valuable enough to bring out the killer instincts in people, a gloomy, oppressive cottage full of secrets and cobwebs, a cast of characters with plenty of motive and opportunity, and a heroine who wasn't afraid to find out the truth. The historical references and descriptions also made the novel quite enjoyable.
I would recommend this book to any fan of murder mysteries.
