How to Solve Your Own Murder: A Novel (Castle Knoll Files, 1)

We rated this book:


In the mid-1960s, teenager Frances Adam had her fortune told at a country fete. It predicted her death. Afterwards, she spent years trying to find out who might want to kill her to no avail, as she remained alive and well. But when Annie Adams is finally summoned to her great aunt’s estate many years later to discuss an inheritance, she finds that Frances has been murdered. It’s now her job to delve into Frances’ past and try to find out who, indeed, could have wanted Frances dead after all these years. But will she be able to root out a killer or will she become a target herself?

Kristen Perrin has written a gem of a mystery that is both classic and clever. I love how it shifts back and forth between the past and present, allowing the reader to find out as much about Frances Adam’s past as we do about Annie in the present. This is definitely one of those books that I could not put down. It had that great mix of good characters, a typical English country setting, and a mystery to be solved. Now that I have finished it, I can’t wait to see what Perrin will come up with next.
