Rae reads... A Proposal to Die For by Vivian Conroy
About the book:
I was drawn to the cover straight away and after reading the description I was pretty certain I would enjoy this book.
So what did I think...
The first chapter introduces Lady Alkmene beautifully and instantly sets the scene. A death that sounds suspicious so of course she has to investigate. Alkmene is a strong, determined and a very likeable character. Pairing her with Jake Dubois is brilliant, I loved their interactions and how they went about trying to solve the mystery.
The story moved at a good pace and kept my interest throughout. I loved the mystery and how Alkmene and Jake joined forces to uncover the truth.
I enjoyed the fact that the story was set in the 1920's it made this book all the more interesting. The story is easy going and I was totally immersed in the plot whilst reading.
Both the story and characters were well written and whenever I had to put the book down I couldn’t wait to start reading again. I can't wait to read the next book in the Lady Alkmene Callender Mystery series, I am definitely hooked!
A Proposal to Die For has two great characters who made this story even more enjoyable!
Five stars from me!
