In previous reviews I always have spoken about my love for Kat, Mouse and Doris and the amazing connection they have together. As this hasn’t changed, I am going to concentrate on Tessa, Hannah and Luke. I really enjoyed Tessa’s character this time round as the local DI and how she is open to the other ladies feedback and input without pulling rank. This time we see her in a different light as she experiences a new relationship which shows a more relaxed side to her which made her more personable. I really enjoyed seeing this side of her.
DS Hannah Granger had more of a role this time around when Tessa is sidelined after becoming ill and it was nice to get to read more with her character as she stepped up taking over the investigation. Luke was an absolute delight. I loved his character as he learned the ropes from “his ladies” but especially from Doris. I loved the connection they had with each other as she took him under her wing. All three of these characters as with the other players have all been brought to life beautifully throughout the pages.
I love Anita’s writing style. She excels in capturing the readers attention right from the opening sentence right through to the final one. It is fluid, engaging, humorous when required and is just effortless. Her descriptions of the characters and the towns are so well written you feel that you know these people and are part of the town. This would actually make a great TV series. Something to think about there Anita…..Murder Untimely is a highly enjoyable read and (just let me get my tissues) a great ending to this remarkable series. (Sniff!)
It’s a bitter sweet moment for me writing this review and one I really did not want to write as it just cements that there will be no more books in this wonderful series. I had hopes that there could be more, but when I read in the acknowledgements from Anita that she will miss Kat, Mouse and Doris it really hit home that this is really the last book. I was just not and am still not ready to say goodbye to Kat, Mouse and my favourite Doris. I still live in hope that Anita may be persuaded to write a couple more though in the future, but if this is the last I am very happy with how it has been wrapped up.
In saying that, after I got over the initial sadness that it was over and really thought about it, I changed my mindset from sadness to gratefulness that this series which was meant to be a trilogy, but changed into a quadrilogy due to its popularity, was even written and how fortunate and lucky I was to not only having the pleasure of reading these books but also being a character in one of them. I would not have even thought that would have been possible let alone to be a part of a series that I adore. I will be forever thankful to Anita for that and also for the amazing surprise of mentioning my character a couple of times in this last instalment which just made it even more special.
I also just want to say thank-you to you Anita for bringing this wonderful series and these amazing loveable characters into my life. It’s not often that a series gets under my skin as much as this series has. It has been a great ride over the four books but our journey of reader and author is not over (thank goodness) and I am very much looking forward to what you come up with next and I will be impatiently waiting for your next book.

Kat and Mouse (Kat and Beth) are making some changes in their investigation agency, Connection. Mouse's grandmother has joined the firm, as well as a new receptionist who has ideas for his own future.
DI Marsden and DS Granger are also back for another crime solving adventure when the body of a woman is found on the grounds of the Chatsworth estate. Once identified, police learn that she was the mother of a young boy who disappeared 10 years earlier and never seen or heard from again. Suspicion has always been on the father, who also disappeared at the same time.
It's only when a second body is found that the police draw in Kat and Mouse for their help.
Can the police and the female sleuths get to the truth before more life is lost? Or is the fate of those involved already sealed?
This is a cozy mystery with interesting characters who get involved in mysterious crimes. The story line is well paced and maintains one's undivided attention. For those who love cozies, this is the perfect series.
Although 4th in the series, this is easily read as a stand alone, but I highly recommend starting at the beginning to catch all those nuggets that make the series what it is.

I feel like the characters of Kat, Mouse and Doris have become family now and from the first page I’m hooked - not just on the story but their lives too. Along with the investigative storyline involving the police, there is a cracking sub-plot to solve and, if that wasn’t enough to keep us entertained, we get an insight into what makes the detectives tick. Then there’s a brand new character, Luke. Absolutely loved him and his friendship with the inimitable Doris. I just hope we hear more from these two in the future because they are a wonderful double act. Well done Anita, you’ve given us another classic !!
Anita Waller has produced yet another fabulous storyline for the Kat and Mouse series. All Kat and Mouse books can be read as a stand alone but I highly recommend that the full series is read.
I am living in hope that there will be another book added to this series; not only for yet another great murder mystery thriller but to also follow the lives of Tessa, Hannah, Kat, Mouse, Doris and now of course Luke. Please don't let us down Ms Waller.
A missing (some think dead,) father and son and a double murder at Chatsworth House, give both Connection and the police plenty of work to do. As always they manage to work around each other and help each other where they can.
The cases involved were really interesting and brought to light the issue of domestic violence against men. Anita covered the topic very well and with sensitivity. I was hoping that the cases wouldn't end the way they did, but with everything that happened, and what was said, I guess it was inevitable.
I shall miss this series, especially Mouses's Nan, Doris - what a personality she is!
An excellent end to a great series.
Anita Waller, please, please, please don't make this the last!! There's still so many more adventures for them & I'd love to see how Luke's character develops.
I certainly didn't guess who the killer was so it took me by surprise.
All in all a great read and I will be looking for more books by this author.
