Description

Miss Marple meets Oscar Wilde in this new series of cosy mysteries set in the picturesque Cotswolds village of Bunburry.

In "Drop Dead, Gorgeous," the fifth Bunburry book, Deb's Beauty Salon becomes the last resting place for merry widow and property magnate Eve Mosby, whose passions include haute couture and a young lover. Plenty of people disliked Mrs Mosby, but enough to kill her? And what really baffles amateur sleuth Alfie McAlister and his friends Liz and Marge is that the body is found in a locked room - how did the murderer get in and out?

Nathaniel Parker, born in 1962, graduated from the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art and went on to join the Royal Shakespeare Company. His television career began in 1988 when he played Flying Officer "Flash" Gordon in the LWT mini-series Piece of Cake. He is also the lead in the BBC series Inspector Lynley Mysteries, based on the novels by Elizabeth George. Nathaniel Parker has an extensive list of audio books to his credit, ranging from the classics of Charles Dickens and Thomas Hardy to more modern writings and children's books.

A delightful mystery series

I have now finished the fifth book in the series and am looking forward to the sixth that is due to be released shortly. The development of the characters is very well done and each relatively short story builds nicely on the preceding ones. I have found this series to be very enjoyable.

Another Fun Mystery in Bunbury

Another unlikely mystery for the 'Bunbury Triangle' to solve. The plot thickens for Alfie also!

likeable characters, good story

The series has very likeable characters, and story is good. Narrator is wonderful, with his different accents for each character, which brings them to life. I especially like Debbie the salon owner in this story.

again, I love the jingle

I am ambivalent about the chapter breaks which do not match these named in the book but onward to 6th book.

MUCH BETTER!!!

Episode 5 is SO much better than the last one! It’s back on a par with the others in the series. And of course Nathaniel Parker just makes the characters come alive. Alfie finally gets some answers in this episode. Looking forward to the next episode.

More Oscar, Please!

I absolutely adore this series and eagerly await the next installment. In this particular story Alfie’s friend Oscar was absolutely fabulously funny! I adore all the Oscar Wilde references, but greatly appreciate that Oscar is also his own person with his own witty quips. Marge and Liz are always a treat, and I can’t wait to find out what happens with Alfie and Betty.
