↠´ Read Î Indian Summer (Mirabelle Bevan Mystery #7) by Sara Sheridan Î Another great addition to the Mirabelle Bevan series Mirabelle investigates the murder of a priest and disappearance of a sister Superintendent McGregor and Vesta also make a reappearance.
Bevan works through a priest murder in a women s world.
Mirabella senses an issue and starts down her intriguing journey watching a priest The story develops into a complex who dunit and why.
Mirabella s personal life is messy and somehow as she untangles her independent but sometimes lonely life the story unfolds.
A number of questions arise with moral dilemmas which are twisted by the need for secrecy Did the nurses do the right thing Did outlawed issues drive lawful people into difficult unlawful situations Does the book represent a society with dual morality that exposed in 50s Interesting read It s the first book i read in this series and I m happy I requested it because it s engaging and entertaining.
I liked the plot, the well written characters and the setting.
The cast of characters is interesting even if they re not always likable, the setting is lovely and I liked the descriptions.
The mystery was ok, no plot hole, and it kept me guessing till the end.
Recommended Many thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for this ARC, all opinions are mine.
Can t ever take Mirabelle for granted she continues to grow
As for the investigation, that wasn t great, for most of the story Mirabelle wasn t on top form and seemed to just drift along without getting anywhere There was an improvement towards the end, but I thought the actual ending left too many loose ends, in fact it almost felt like the author was giving up on the series.
If possible I would have given 2.
