An A-List for Death

 An A-List for Death

Poppy McGowan #2

Pamela Hart

Reviewed by Helen

I have been waiting for this one since I finished the first book and was not disappointed, Pamela Hart had me turning the pages as Poppy gets herself caught up in all sorts problems while staying with her Aunty Mary after her Aunt’s knee surgery, there are break-ins, attacks and murder I do hope you come along for the ride.

It seems that children’s TV researcher Poppy has again found her way into mayhem, it really is not what she goes looking for but people tend to open up to her so easily, when she rushes to the aid of her Aunt Mary’s best friend and neighbour, Daisy the doors open to a stack of mysteries, was Daisy attacked or did she fall? then a break in and paparazzi following Poppy around because Daisy’s son is a rock star Nathan Castle and Poppy is not one to leave things alone she must get to bottom of the mystery.

The police are not convinced of Poppy’s thoughts on any of the things happening and when a young woman is murdered they look, to as far as Poppy is concerned, the wrong suspect, Nathan Castle is doing what he can to help his mother and his family seem to be acting a bit strange and when Nathan is put in the line of fire there is an outcry from his fans and Poppy again is on the case.
Poppy’s boyfriend Tol is again at her side as they weather the storm of media and danger that is constantly there, but Poppy is ever determined to get her answers to what has been happening.

I did love this book it is witty, exciting and such a fabulous read, the characters are bought to life and are so very real, Pamela Hart has a way with words that pull the reader in and she had me guessing till the very end on who, how and why this all came about, this is one that I highly recommend it is sure to keep any reader who loves a good cosy entertained till the very end and I am really looking forward to more Poppy stories.

My thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for my copy to read and review
