Death of an Avid Reader (Kate Shackleton, #6)

by Frances Brody

Thursday, November 20, 2014

I’ve enjoyed the previous books in this series so I was a bit disappointed to walk into Waterstones in Huddersfield a few weeks ago and find a big sign telling me that Frances Brody was coming to sign books… I was disappointed because the time on the sign ended about an hour before I had arrived. Happily as my brain was still processing this a little lady popped up beside me who turned out to be Frances Brody - still there and happy to sign a book for me. Thanks!

I liked this too - it’s set mostly in the middle of Leeds which will have me wandering round looking for the right buildings next time I am in the city centre, it’s 1920-something and Kate’s searching for the adopted daughter of a lady and getting tangled up in a murder at the Leeds Library. Nicely plotted as usual and lighthearted without being too lightweight. Good entertainment.
