Fun, but easy to figure out. Characters aren't as interesting as Thursday Murder Club. ( )

A group of women in a small British village solve murders. ( )

Suffice it to say, that all the way through the reading of this novel, I thought that I had somehow read it before, but I never checked if I had, until I came to write this review, and then I discovered that I actually had. My earlier review is here.

Anyway. it seems that I have enjoyed it a little more this time around.

And did I find it derivative of THE THURSDAY MURDER CLUB, a question that seems to worry many readers, afraid of wasting their time if they take the plunge? The answer to that is No. Similar in plot lines but not derivative. It stands well on its own. ( )

Delightful rag tag group of women solve the crime! ( )

Something of a Cosy, but with a nice twisty plot and a collection of strong female characters to recommend it. Plus a dog ( no, it doesn’t die) ( )

Book description
From the creator of BBC's Death in Paradise series comes a wholly original new mystery

Judith Potts is seventy-seven years old and blissfully happy. She lives just outside Marlow with no man in her life to tell her what to do and she keeps herself busy setting crosswords for the newspaper. But Judith's peace is disrupted when she witnesses a murder while out for a swim in the Thames.

The local police don't believe her story, so she investigates for herself, joined by a salt-of-the-earth dog-walker and the prim and proper wife of the local vicar. Together, they are the Marlow Murder Club. When another body turns up, they realize the puzzle they set out to solve might be a real-life serial killer's deadly trap.
