My Thoughts

I absolutely love finding new cozy mystery series to love, and Anna Armstrong is earning a spot among my favorites! I’ve found a few among #LBT authors and I’m so excited to find another! The Fitzmorris ladies are just a delight to visit with and I’m so excited that there is already another book to read – even if I can’t pick it up next. Boo having responsibilities!

Armstrong’s ability to weave the three ladies together as three related ladies who have similarities but also very distinct personalities is fantastic. Having worked hard to write twins and other siblings, it can be difficult to make such closely related characters seem realistic but the author has risen to the challenge! I enjoy all three ladies for their distinct idiosyncrasies. I tried to pick a favorite, but each time I did, I would remember why a different one stood out! As far as the gentlemen, I like Nicholas well enough, but I really like Josh. His adorable puppy-dog character just wins my heart. And, anyone who’s been here for any amount of time knows my heart’s always going to go to the sidekick. I can’t even deny it. I’ll figure out I love a character and sure enough… it’s the sidekick. I’m sure Amelia would have something to say about the psychology of that.

The setting for the second book is so different from the first. A gorgeous island paradise, and more than one surprise romance to boot! I don’t want to spoil anything in that regard, so you’ll just have to read it to find out more about that! But you know I love a love triangle, and there was at least one to contend with in this book. And, of course, everyone tempted fate claiming that no murders could happen on the sweet little island. They forgot to knock on wood!

I’m so grateful to the author and Love Books Tours for including me on this tour, and I look forward to reading the next one!

About the Author

Anna A. Armstrong writes uplifting, cosy mysteries. Set in rural villages, they overflow with friendship, warm family relationships, delicious food, beautiful gardens and romance as well as the odd murder to spice things up. At the heart of her stories are her colourful characters who have their own varied foibles. There is nothing like a spot of murder for revealing who people are and what makes them tick.

Growing up in home counties England, Anna was surrounded with dogs and horses as well as the wide variety of people who make up village life. Her observation skills were further honed by studying Anthropology at university. Much to her family’s embarrassment, she often can’t resist pulling out a pad and sketching random strangers in a restaurant.

When not indulging her love of travelling, Anna divides her time between the quintessentially English village of Burford in the Cotswolds and the rugged Isle of Man, the jewel of the Irish Sea. She is passionate about food, her garden, her three dachshunds, family and latterly trick riding, just in case running off to the circus becomes an option!
