Thank you for stopping by I'm delighted to be sharing my review for Murder in the Med by Peter Mayle. First of all let's take a look at the description for the book...
When a billionaire finds himself on the wrong side of a Russian tycoon, he’s fortunate to have friends, Sam and Elena, on hand to help him out. Now it’s up to Sam, who’s saved his friends neck before, to negotiate with an underworld hit men and Mafioso, in order to prevent his friend from winding up dead.
As usual, Sam and Elena still find time to enjoy the good life, but as Sam’s sleuthing draws him closer to the truth, he realizes his friend might not be the only one in trouble…
Rich with clever twists and sparkling scenery, Murder in the Med is the ultimate summer holiday read.
It's safe to say that I was well and truly transported to the Mediterranean with this book. With beautiful descriptions guaranteed to make you feel as if you are right there. I have to admit to feeling pretty hungry at times with all the lovely food being described! Although I will say that there is a lot happening in this story that could make you wish you were well away from the trouble that this group of characters find themselves mixed up with. I really enjoyed seeing how they all came together to try and help, coming up with ideas to foil one very determined Russian and his plans!
There was a steady pace throughout and the length of the story is just right to read in one afternoon or even relaxing with in an evening. Murder in the Med isn't exactly a fast paced thriller but has more of a cozy laidback style which made for a lovely change. Murder in the Med has a fabulous setting that is perfect for a more relaxed reading experience!
Four stars from me!
