Zip Murder in Midwinter Fran Castle is asked if she will help Bella Morleigh who has inherited a cottage and a derelict theatre from relatives she didn't know existed. Fran, with her psychic abilities, senses there is more going on than she is being told and is suspicious because it is the police who have asked her to get in touch with Bella. Fran's friend, Libby Sarjeant, is also interested in the case especially when Bella discovers a body inside the derelict theatre when she visits it for the first time. Both Fran and Libby are involved in the forthcoming production of the pantomime, Jack and the Beanstalk, which Libby helps to run and they're also looking forward to celebrating the Civil Partnership of their friends, Peter and Harry. In spite of all that is going on in their lives, both Fran and Libby find Bella' situation intriguing and they are keen to find out more about her family for her.I enjoyed this third book in the Libby Sarjeant series and I recommend it to anyone who likes their crime stories set in the English countryside and with not too much violence. I like the added ingredient of Fran's psychic abilities. I also like the fact that Fran and Libby don't always get on and they do have arguments and snap at one another.

  2. The Libby Sarjeant mysteries are cozy, delightful and entertaining This third book was no exception.The author once again did an excellent job of depicting the small English village of Steeple Martin and its wonderful cast of characters whose lives are so intertwined they seem like one big family Fran Castle is still somewhat of an outsider, but she is gradually working her way into the family dynamic And, the family dynamic seems to involve a great deal of eating and drinking in pubs and cafes, [...]


  3. When a body is discovered in the derelict Alexandrian theatre in Heronsbourne, the police call in physic Fran Castle to see if there is any connection between the body and the new owner of the threatre, Bella Morleigh All Fran can tell them is that there is some connection somewhere but what she isn t sure Calling on her friend Libby Sargent the two of them have been involved in two other murder inquiries , they help Bella investigate her families history, the aunt she didn t know she had who le [...]


  4. Psychic investigator Libby Sarjeant, with the help of friend Fran Castle, sorts out a somewhat complicated double murder after Bella Morleigh is left a derelict theatre by an aunt she did not know she had.Plenty of twists and turns but also plenty of seemingly irrelevant prattle.


  5. This was an ok read the plot moved at a steady pace and the characters were well written However, I have a major dislike of psychics solving murder cases it is all too easy for a writer to get themselves and their characters out of trouble with either a dream that gives a missing clueor a sudden burst of inspiration with no real reason apart from being a psychic for the information being visited upon a characteror a character just knowing something crucial to the casec etc So, although this was [...]


  6. Good storyI am really getting into this series now that I ve read 3 of them I love the genealogical aspects of the mysteries Looking forward to book 4.


  7.

  8. The third in the Libby Sarjeant series this is another complex Marple esque murder mystery that begins with a mystery letter from an unknown relative leaving Bella, a married woman living in London with her two children and not so pleasant husband, a cottage and derelict theatre As she arrives in Nethergate she discovers a body in the theatre and so begins Libby and Fran s quest to find the identity of the murderer, their connection to Bella and the connection between Bella and the body in the t [...]


  9. Started off good and quite predictably However ,this story seemed to drag and drag leading to an easy solution for the author A disappointing read from the last book Not a clever writer but her last book at least kept a reader interested This book,I just kept wish it was over I do admire she doesn t use cheap theatrical devices to have her psychic character move her story along Not sure if believe but I suspect if it does,it would be like this A sixth sense that we all have but a few amongst us [...]


  10. The third in the Libby Sarjeant series sees Fran consulted by Bella Morleigh, who has been left a derelict seaside theatre by an unknown relative Bella wants to know about her family, particularly when a body is found in the theatre, and despite being deep in pantomime rehearsals at The Oast House Theatre, Libby and Fran Castle, a local psychic, are soon involved in another murder investigation less Book 3


  11. Another referral from friend which provided a most delightful mystery Have found authors characters like old friends who stop by for a chat which always reveals a surprise Worthy of mystery fans time Series which can be read out of order but most fun when followed consecutively.


  12. Just when you think you solved crime up pops another game changer Characters keep moving rapidly through their paces leaving reader happy to have shared time Thought I had figured out who killer was early on but again fooled by clever author.
