New Captivating Release by Kerry Greenwood, Coming 8/1/17.
A suspicious death, had Private Investigator Phryne Fisher, accepting a temporary position at the Women’s Choice Magazine. Miss Lavender, an advice columnist for the magazine, was found dead in her home. It was discovered that threatening letters were being sent to her, by dissatisfied recipients of her advice. Aside from the need to probe more deeply into unsettling remarks made by Miss Lavender’s neighbors, PI Phryne Fisher felt compelled to follow up on a hunch, that Women’s Choice Magazine had something to do with the columnist’s death.
Phryne was finding it difficult to concentrate on her work after news of increasing violence off the coast of China, reached her. The troublesome area was right where her lover, Lin Chung’s ship had sailed or possibly could still be. When Lin Chung’s bodyguard came bearing terrible news, mild-mannered Phryne Fisher became enraged. Phryne Fisher was out for blood now, and if she had to squash Pirates to save her lover than that’s what she would do.
Although Away With The Fairies is an intriguing read with unique characters and a captivating plot, it took me a while to become engrossed in the novel. Once I did though, I was hooked.
Thank you, Poisoned Pen Press and NetGalley, for my advanced review copy.
