We’ve heard the movie making business is cutthroat well Belinda’s about to find
out just how cutthroat it can be.
Again, I’ve had the opportunity
to read Belinda’s third mystery straight after book two and book one. So,
it really wouldn’t be fair to tell you who Belinda’s cohorts are; however, there is a marriage proposal on the
table. Will she or won’t she? You’ll
just have to read and find out.
But never doubt that each book
is it’s own stand-alone tale. I just happen to be a tad fanatical in my
series order reading.
This time around, Belinda has been
asked to stand-in for a Hollywood actress during the boring hours of movie making. The
same actress who has stepped into the role left by the death of another…murder?
The same actress whose not-so-secret affair with the movie’s producer has ended in murder? Too bad only Belinda’s fingerprints were on the murder weapon.
“Bloody Ham” is another
triumph for Mr. Kavanagh. Which makes my job as a reviewer that much easier and
harder…I thoroughly enjoy “Bloody Ham” but what more can I possibly tell you about Mr. Kavanagh’s
Mr. Kavanagh has not let up on
his crisp characters, sweeping mystery, vast subject knowledge, picture perfect settings and dead-on moods. With each Belinda story just fewer than 200 pages, Mr. Kavanagh utilizes each word for maximum benefit. There is no wastage within his pages.
Mr. Kavanagh has also managed to
keep each recurring character fresh. He has introduced new aspects to these characters
that allow us, his readers, to see them with new eyes and emotions while still keeping them true to their personalities.
I cannot suggest strongly enough
that you join Belinda in “Bloody Ham.”
