Meddling, miserable and small-minded, she is the Scrooge of the square where she lives in Bath.
Her neighbours are weary of her constant allegations — the latest being that someone is stealing her plants.
When Joanna McKenzie, ex-policewoman turned private detective, is called to investigate, she finds she doesn’t care for Mrs Pryce either — but a minor source of unpleasantness turns major when Mrs Pryce is battered to death.
If this was not challenging enough, Joanna is forced to work alongside her former colleague and old flame, Inspector James Carrick.
Heat begins to build on all fronts when a young red-headed nurse, mistaken for Joanna, winds up murdered, and the eccentric characters living in the square begin to show their true colours.
Joanna and James must put their feelings on hold and unite to catch the killer before the killer finds them.
Dressed to Kill is a gripping murder mystery set in the cosy town of Bath.
A thief and a murder. A nosey, busy body of a neighbour has hired a Private investigator to find out who is taking her plants. So Private investigator Joanna McKenzie, who is an ex policewoman begins to investigate. She soon finds out why not many of the neighbours like Mrs Pryce. But is shocked when Mrs Pryce turns up dead. Battered to death it seems on her own doorstep.
As the police are brought in Joanna realises and its her old work colleague and old flame Inspector James Carrick, and she is forced to work alongside him again.
This was quite a quick read compared to some books at just over 220 pages, so it something you could easily get through on a long journey, or full day sat in the garden.
I did occasionally get a little confused within the story. And went back to re read what i'd read.
It just seems like a typical whodunit type of book.
Thank you to Netgalley and the publishers for an ARC of this book.
