OK, so maybe I'm willing to put up with it when it's free. But when I'm paying for a book, I expect someone will have proofread it.
The $4 that the next one in the series costs will be spent on a different series, sorry to say.
Hazel departs and just prior Belinda's turn, a life-altering telephone call arrives. 'He's dead!' is the shocking message. How? Why? All Belinda's mother knew was who, where and when and the conditions put forth in the newspaper.
Shocked, but determined, Belinda continues with her travel plans. The beauty and architectural changes of her home city is lost upon the grief stricken woman. To add to the mystery, Belinda receives a couriered package containing a small pamphlet and key ring with keys at her parent's home.
Trying to make contact with the victim's family, Belinda is immersed into the new civil war between the Roundheads and Cavaliers. What has a proposed Dome being added to the House of Parliament have to do with the victim? Who are the strange mourners at the funeral and what are their connection to the deceased? Encountering retired music hall entertainers, colourful antique dealers, a gregarious Major, and more has Belinda and Hazel twirling. The most alarming? What is Belinda's fiancé, Mark Sallinger involvement?
This novel's storyline was complex and filled with surprises for the reader. As the Author wove the plot through the city of Melbourne, we were treated with a travel tour of the architectural highlights such as the 'State Parliament House' and 'Spring Street', and 'St. Patrick's Cathedral.' I found the tale compelling, the mystery fulfilling, and the 'city' delightful. This series continues to improve with each new story. I look forward to the next installment. These books are novella length.
As Belinda and best friend Hazel Whitby started their investigation, what they uncovered led them into a maze of political intrigue. Suddenly there was danger surrounding them; Belinda had no idea who she could trust – and the lives of others were in jeopardy. What were they to do? Who could they talk to? The depth of the secrets astounded them – and as the mystery deepened and another body was found, Belinda knew she had to solve this one quickly.
A Wicked Design is the 5th cosy mystery in the Belinda Lawrence series by Aussie author Brian Kavanagh. Set in Melbourne, Australia, it was a great read with familiar places and landscapes. The plot is a great one, the pace fast as both Belinda and Hazel move through their investigation. Recommended.
