About the book
Moving to a quiet English village should have been tranquil, but Claire Barclay learns that even an invitation to tea can be deadly. Who killed Mrs. Paulson, the president of the local Mystery Books Club? Was the motive for murder located in the archives of the book club? The members of the books club might have reason to want Mrs. Paulson’s out of the way. She had lived in the village all her life, been involved in many organizations and societies and knew many secrets of the villagers. Was one secret too dangerous for her to keep? She had been wealthy and left her money to a member of the club. Could the legatee have been impatient for her inheritance? Who cared enough to want her dead? Claire, an expert in solving problems in her job as a tour guide, decides to delve into the archives and into the lives of the villagers—and find out.
And I thought
It is always a delight to begin a new series with book 1. Sometimes the reader has some difficulty when stepping into a series and figuring out what is going on based on the previous books.
Emma Dakin did such an excellent job of introducing Claire and the British Book Tour Mysteries series that I do not expect any
difficulty for readers with future books if you've missed this one.
But if your a fan of Cozy Mysteries, Agatha Christie and others or a fan of British themed books you'll love this one.
The idea of a book tour is new to me and much welcome.
It was interesting to me because Claire recently returned to Britain after spending a few years in Seattle so even though the book is set in Britain there is alot of American phrases making it easy to read.
As Claire settles back into her life as a Brittish 'er' she struggles with becoming a part of her new community and is worried about making more enemies than friends when she realizes that she is
destined to sleuth out the questions and figure out exactly what happened to Mrs. Paulson.
I am a bit of a cover junkie and actually very critical of covers.
All I have is good things to say about this one. I loved the scene of the English countryside. Setting the scene for the tour company that takes visitors through the English countryside visiting points of interest.
I enjoyed Hazards in Hampshire and I am waiting anxiously for book 2. I love finding a new series!
I received a complimentary copy.
My review will appear on retail sites and Good Reads and promoted on social media.
Hazards in Hampshire gets my vote for best new series.
And will be featured on my suggestions for Christmas.
