168 posts | 152 read | 4 reading | 65 to read
The second gripping novel in the #1 internationally bestselling Thursday Murder Club series, the first of which Kate Atkinson called "A little beacon of pleasure in the midst of the gloom. . . SUCH FUN!" Elizabeth, Joyce, Ron and Ibrahimthe Thursday Murder Clubare still riding high off their recent real-life murder case and are looking forward to a bit of peace and quiet at Coopers Chase, their posh retirement village. But they are out of luck. An unexpected visitoran old pal of Elizabeths (or perhaps more than just a pal?)arrives, desperate for her help. He has been accused of stealing diamonds worth millions from the wrong men and hes seriously on the lam. Then, as night follows day, the first body is found. But not the last. Elizabeth, Joyce, Ron and Ibrahim are up against a ruthless murderer who wouldnt bat an eyelid at knocking off four septuagenarians. Can our four friends catch the killer before the killer catches them? And if they find the diamonds, too? Well, wouldnt that be a bonus? You should never put anything beyond the Thursday Murder Club. Richard Osman is back with everyones favorite mystery-solving quartet, and the second installment of The Thursday Murder Club series is just as clever and warm as the firstan unputdownable, laugh-out-loud pleasure of a read.

So good! It‘s even better than the first one and I didn‘t think that would be possible.

What a great sequel! I am almost tempted to say that I liked this one even better than the first one; which is saying a lot since I loved that one! It was fun to continue to see the characters grow and uncover another mystery.

This was such a fun installment of the Thursday Murder Club series which I enjoyed even more than the first book. I loved catching up with the members of the club and other returning characters and look forward to reading the next book in the series.

Super light comedy and a nice easy read, I got through this book on a long haul flight which was made much more pleasant by the investigating octogenarians! I enjoyed this even more than the first in the series and am looking forward to reading the third.

This second book in the Thursday Murder Club series is even funnier than the first. The book is really cleverly put together. I could not stop reading. The audio for this is great, too.

Okay onto the second of this series and am kind of hooked. An old colleague/husband of Elizabeth is in hiding in the neighbourhood from the London underworld accused of stealing 20M pounds in diamonds. Murder and chaos results and the team of septuagenarian and octogenarian nursing home residents undertake to investigate the resultant murders. Light, cliched but overall a lot of fun

Cold brew🧋keto cupcakes🧁and a nice morning catching up with my latest comfort-read of octogenarian crime solvers! I hope very much to be as much of a battle axe as Elizabeth someday.

Has anyone else seen a movie with a bunch of aging superhero‘s set in a nursing home? I cannot remember the name, but it has similar vibes to TMC. I wonder if osman watched it while writing?

A lovely holiday read. Another murder mystery to be solved by the four elderly friends from Cooper‘s Chase retirement village. Everyone - police, spies, criminals - has a human side and friendship wins the day.

I just couldn't stop listening to this (which is good for my husband because I did more #chores than normally, so I had an “excuse“). So yeah, I just love these characters. I ended up preordering the next one (again, thanks, @ChrissyReadIt) and will only have to wait for a little over a month, so... perfect timing!

The usual humours mixed with multiple murders & a clever plot made me love this one even more than the first book!
It did get a little slow at times, but the witty banters & friendship between the members (of Thursday Murder Club) from the retirement village made me giggles out loud & reminded me not to underestimate your elderly! I want to join their community & be as sassy as Elizabeth & Joyce when I grow old! 😆

This was delightful. Not sure why I waited so long to read it after loving the first book in the series, but I read it today and highly recommend it. I will definitely read the next one when it comes out! The writing style just really makes me chuckle, as you can see in his author blurb. 😋

Kempii I seem to be one of the few readers who didn‘t like Thursday Night Murder Club (I found it boring), but am wondering enough about what I missed in this author‘s writing to give him another try. 6mo
LiteraryinLawrence @Kempii I mean, the second one is totally in the same style as the first. I think you should trust your gut! But of course if you want to give it a shot, I‘m sure the library could oblige. 😋 6mo

If you liked the first book, you might like the second even more! It‘s clever, charming, funny, and poignant.

Picking up this book was like reuniting with old friends. I love the Thursday Murder Club with all of their quirks. I agree that this book was even better than the first. I cannot thank @AmyG enough for kindly sending this book my way. Cannot wait for the next installment!

This one was even better than the first in the series. I keeping trying to decide which of the main characters is my favorite. I think probably Elizabeth because she‘s just so clever, but Joyce is fun. I especially like that the book features some journal entries from Joyce that bring in new layers of the story with a lot of humor. Ibrahim, Ron, and Bogdan are also great. I‘m ready to read more of their adventures.

This was my #BookSpin for July

The intrepid members of the Thursday Murder Club are at it once again! An ex-husband from Elizabeth‘s secret past suddenly resurfaces & inserts himself into her life. Murder & mayhem soon follow. A malicious mugging of one of their own, stolen diamonds, organized crime, & spies add to this ingenious, at times humorous, novel. #ThursdayMurderClubMystery

The Prophets is off my #NYWD list and my July #BookSpin and Ghost is for #AuthorAMonth and is my July #DoubleSpin. Love when I can knock off two challenges with one book. Looking forward to both.

My hold for the audiobook came in and I have been happily listening to the Thursday Murder Club‘s antics. Elizabeth‘s ex-husband turns up and of course murder and mayhem follow. A very enjoyable second book of what I hope will be a long series. My favourite secondary character may have a crush - can‘t wait for developments in book 3 👍👍
