Free on Kindle 28th March – 1st April

‘The kick-off to Goodhind’s new mystery series – fast moving with a likeable heroine and an impeccably rendered Bath background…’ Kirkus Reviews

First title in the Honey Driver Murder Mystery series based in Bath,
England.

Honey Driver runs a hotel in Bath. She also collects antique
underwear. As boss, she’s in charge one day and washing dishes the next,
resisting her mother’s match-making attempts and managing multiple
responsibilities – mundane, safe, and unexciting. Then one day things change.
Honey lands the job of liaising with the police on behalf of Bath Hotels
Association. No worries, she tells herself. Nothing will happen; then an
American tourist goes missing and Honey is called in to help.

Despite
the on/off hostility of her police opposite number, D C I Steve Doherty, she
sticks to the task. In the process Honey finds out that there’s more to work
than washing dishes, and more to murder than malice aforethought.

The is the first book, since I read Love Story as a teenager, that I have read and not wanted to put it down! Honey is a fantastic character, descriptions of Bath are so clear that I feel ‘ll as though I know it well. I am really looking forward to reading more. I have several friends who love reading and have recommended the book and character to them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Something in the Blood 21 Mar 2013

This book is decidedly different from the usual crime novel with humour, quirky characters, a plot set in beautiful Bath and lots of twists and turns including a budding relationship with DS Steve Doherty. But is he the grit or the pearl in Honey’s oyster? I still can’t decide.Definitely ‘Something in the Blood’ from all angles.

‘Sometimes it is the location alone makes you curious about a detective novel….Jean G Goodhind in her debut novel has added much more than that – a droll plot and a lot of British humour…’
