TEASER LINES FROM ‘THREE SISTERS’

“So we have suspects,’ Dr. Muriel said. ‘But no murder. That’s interesting. That’s a conundrum. ‘Remember, remember, the 5th of November. Gunpowder, treason and plot.’ How very apt that you should be investigating a murder that may not have happened, on Bonfire Night, a night which celebrates a regicide that never happened. You need a motive, don’t you? Though before you start with that, I’d say you need to have a murder.”
‘THREE SISTERS‘ (Emily Castle Mysteries #1) by HELEN SMITH
Emily receives an invitation to a party in a large house at the end of her street, hosted by a mysterious troupe of circus performers. She accepts, despite her misgivings, because her dog has died and she needs cheering up. But when she witnesses a murder in the midst of the surreal entertainment, no one will believe what she has seen. Is Emily befuddled with grief at the loss of her pet? Or has something wicked happened in plain sight of all the party-goers? Emily and her eccentric neighbours attempt to discover the truth in a charming story that will have you giggling at every funny line.
This short mystery is a standalone story set in London. The Emily Castles mysteries can be read in any order.
