A Racing Murder Frances Evesham 5*#Review @BoldwoodBooks @FrancesEvesham #AHamHillMurderMystery @rararesources #cozymystery #murdermystery #HorseRacing #BoldwoodBloggers #BlogTour #ARacingMurder #BookReview #Somerset #MondayBlogs

The next thrilling Ham-Hill Murder Mystery from bestselling cosy crime author Frances Evesham.

A winning horse. A fierce rivalry. A sudden death. 


Belinda Sandford thrills to the cheers of the crowd as her beautiful grey racehorse, ‘Butterfly Charm’, thunders past the finishing post first at Wincanton Racecourse. She feels like the luckiest girl in the world.

But joy soon turns to despair as a stewards’ enquiry overturns the result and awards the race to her long-time rival, Alexandra Deacon.

When Alex is found dead in suspicious circumstances, a host of accusing eyes turn to Belinda and her distraught mother begs Adam Hennessy, her neighbour, retired police officer and publican, to help clear her daughter’s name.

As Adam, and local hotelier Imogen Bishop, dig deep into the murky and powerful undercurrents of the horse racing world, they lay bare the lives and loves of local jockeys, grooms, trainers and owners. 

They soon uncover a web of secrets hidden within the spectacular Somerset countryside as they strive to find the killer in time to prevent more murders.

A brand new cosy mystery series from the bestselling author of A Village Murder.

I received a copy of this book from Boldwood Books via NetGalley in return for an honest review.

My Thoughts…

The second book in The Ham Hill Murder Mystery series focuses on the horse racing set. Popular in the 1970s and 1980s as a topic for crime and mystery, it was lovely to reacquaint with the horse racing set in this cosy mystery.

When Adam and Imogen are requested to clear a female jockey’s name after the suspicious death of a rival, they uncover many secrets and motives. It’s like ‘Riders’ focusing on horse racing rather than showjumping, but a little less racy.

The cosy mystery ethos is immersive reading, with vibrant characters and vivid settings that complement the twisty plot perfectly.

This story is a perfect escape with crime, mystery and a touch of romance.
