A chilly autumn evening and only eight members turned up for our monthly Whodunit Book Club meeting. The meeting was anything but chilly however. Much camaraderie and hilarity ensued.
Now you see me".
The first novel in a series of 4 1/2 so far (four novels and one novella) , the novel was quite highly rated by the group in attendance with a score of 8.5 out of a possible ten points and only one member saying she would not read another in the series.
"Now you see me" was a fast-paced police procedural mystery novel set in South London which contained short chapters with 'cliff-hanger' endings ensuring that the novel was a real page-turner. The strong and well described opening was very memorable though too graphic for some. The many twists and well portrayed action scenes were appreciated as were the well rendered descriptive passages and extensive background research.
I wrote a review of the novel on my blog: Fictionophile
The lucky winners of the book giveaways this month were...... drum roll..... everyone in attendance!
Thanks to Pam and Chapters Dartmouth for hosting such an enjoyable meeting every month!
