Death Under The Stars

 Murder Mystery Book Club book #3 is Death Under the Stars. Set in Australia and focused on a book club, this series has cozy mysteries that tend to parallel Agatha Christie's books. They are enjoyable and cleverly written.

Death Under The StarsDeath Under The Stars by C.A. Larmer
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

enjoyable cozy with lots of Christie references

This book has undertones of Christie’s Evil under the sun and mixes with some Hitchcock plot as well. The group dynamics of the murder mystery book club changed a bit in this installment. Now Alicia is involved with Det Jackson so there is the amateur connected with the pro trope. Also there is a bit of strain in the group dynamics and changes in member’s circumstances; all making for interesting twists. The book features lots of red herrings and twisty clues that make for a well written book. I look forward to continuing the series
