5.0 out of 5 stars An Utter Delight
By Aidan Goatley on 31 July 2021
It doesn’t take long, into this excellent read, for you to imagine Ian Moore’s mystery solving characters becoming part of our Sunday evening tv schedule. So it’s all the more important to be part of the crowd that can say they read it ‘before it was on TV.’

The plot centres on British B&B owner Richard. A film historian, whose anger at IMDB’s existence, is quelled by the simple life he leads in the Loire Valley running his business and watching classic movies.
Things are soon thrown into disarray when a guest goes missing, one of his chickens is killed and a mystery woman comes into his life.

Moore balances the plot with equal doses of charm, wit and intrigue as genuine surprises are mixed with laugh out loud lines.

It’s one of those reads that leave you gutted it’s finished but grateful it’s billing as ‘A Follet Valley Mystery’ implies there’s more to come.
