SMILE AND BE A VILLAIN a cozy murder mystery full of twists Kindle Edition
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “I have loved this series from the very first book! Hope Ms. Dams keeps on writing them for a very long time.” Jan
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “So great to have a protagonist of this age who is perceptive and intelligent . . . I can’t say enough about the characterisation!” Ratcliff
"Alderney's scenic beauty contrasts nicely with the villain's dark back business ground and evil plans" Publishers Weekly
What could be better than a fortnight’s break on the tiny old-fashioned Channel Island of Alderney? Dorothy and her husband are looking forward to a lovely peaceful vacation on the picturesque little island.
But it’s not to be.
Out on a twisty cliff-top walk, Dorothy spots something that changes everything. A body, lying broken on the rocks below.
Did he fall — or was he pushed?
All of Dorothy’s instincts tell her there’s more to this death, and this victim, than meets the eye — and that her vacation is going to have to wait.
Perfect for fans of Stella Cameron, Faith Martin, Agatha Christie, Frances Evesham, Betty Rowlands, or M.C. Beaton.
READERS LOVE THE DOROTHY MARTIN MYSTERIES
“Hugely entertaining, gentle mystery with a likeable protagonist.” Intheamazone
“Dorothy is a dear.” New York Times Book Review
“If you’re a classic mystery lover, you're sure to enjoy the books of Jeanne M. Dams. Her characters, settings and stories have a depth not often seen in this sub-genre.” Mystery News
“This one kept me guessing right to the end.” Stack Reviews
“A cozy as comforting as a hot cup of tea and as deliciously spicy as one of Dorothy’s mince pies.” Publishers Weekly
Dorothy Martin, sixtyish widow from Indiana and retired schoolteacher, moves to England shortly after her husband dies. A move they had planned to make together. Like the author, she has a taste for fabulous hats.
