Description

How the male author manages to also nail the middle-aged female psyche is truly a marvel, with each of the three characters so well-crafted you would swear you have met them. They come to know that recently Topsy has been the victim of financial fraud and has lost all her life savings. When Topsy is found dead in her home the following week Liz, Pat and Thelma suspect that there might be more to her death than meets the eye. Every Thursday, three retired school teachers have their 'coffee o'clock' sessions at the Thirsk Garden Centre cafe. Gossiping about family and their old days teaching it's a low stress hour out of their "busy" schedules.

It’s all there - so many threads woven into the fabric of realistic everyday existence, and touching, in some cases poignantly, on the effect our actions can have on those around us. I had a pretty good idea about what had happened to Topsy early on but there is something else surrounding the mystery of her death that left me with a list of suspects I was unable to narrow down. A subplot deals with a younger female single mother of two so JM Hall has created a situation where there will be something for most women to relate to. Even having finished the book only a moment ago, I have no clear image of their different characters - if they were different at all. They are three very different characters, all very carefully created and developed, each with characteristics that both endeared and, at times, frustrated me.DISCLOSURE: Thank you to Avon Books UK, and HarperCollins Audio for providing both a digital and an audio ARC of A Spoonful of Murder by J. There must be a thing now with older amateur sleuth stories, as I’ve read more than I had expected to recently. Hall’s debut novel, A Spoonful of Murder is a charming cozy mystery with three smart, inquisitive and determined protagonists, a good dose of humor and an interesting premise. Thelma, Pat and Liz are like I said (but it is worth repeating) barely over sixty, they do not know what emojis are, distrust online banking and act much older. The girls take it upon themselves to investigate Topsy’s death and digging into what happened with the bank fraud and her death.

Up pops an entire array of, quite frankly, despicable people who don’t even think twice in ripping off the vulnerable.I also wished after the fact that I’d read it in print form just because the plot has some complexity and twists and turns, and I would have like to go back and re-read some bits. Pat is bright and attractive, the wife of Rod, (a builder) but worries about her youngest, teenage son, Liam.
