The brand new book from a powerful literary voice, author of The Stranger She Knew, shortlisted for the Paul Torday Prize. 'Guaranteed to hook you . . . At times both touching and darkly funny, A Beginner's Guide To Murder explores the vital ways in which women can support one another through their darkest hours' Anna Bailey, Sunday Times bestselling author of Tall Bones'A beguiling, beautifully crafted treat of a novel. It holds so much wisdom yet wears it so lightly. There are shades of Kate Atkinson in the way Rosalind balances dark themes with dry humour, a great plot, exquisitely realised characters, and more than a hint of feminist sensibility... truly everything I want in a novel' Jessica Moor, bestselling author of Keeper'A quirky, witty thriller that reminds us not to underestimate the older generation' Best'Darkly comic and gripping' Woman's Own* * *Grace, Meg and Daphne, all in their seventies, are minding their own business while enjoying a cup of tea in a caf, when seventeen-year-old Nina stumbles in. She's clearly distraught and running from someone, so the three women think nothing of hiding her when a suspicious-looking man starts asking if they've seen her. Once alone, Nina tells the women a little of what she's running from. The need to protect her is immediate, and Grace, Meg and Daphne vow to do just this. But how? They soon realise there really is only one answer: murder. And so begins the tale of the three most unlikely murderers-in-the-making, and may hell protect anyone who underestimates them.* * * Readers LOVE Rosalind Stopps: 'I was hooked from the start and finished it in little more than two days, because it was truly unputdownable. Beautifully written and really quite scary in places . . . A brilliant book. More from this excellent writer please!' Amazon 5*'This is how fiction should be done! A fabulous, thrilling tale and I loved it!' NetGalley 5*'An exceptionally powerful psychological thriller' NetGalley 5*

My two current reads.

The third volume of the Neapolitan Quartet and a thriller about three 70-something women who step in to help a young girl in trouble.

jlhammar I just might have to order that Rosalind Stopps book! I hadn't heard of it before, but it sounds like the kind of mystery/thriller I might enjoy. 1mo
tpixie @jlhammar I agree 1mo

LeahBergen @vivastory Hi, Scott! I am, thank you. Well, now that I‘m over the damn Covid that I contracted at a wedding right in the middle of my holiday! It finally got me. 🙄 4w
vivastory No!! I'm so sorry to hear that 🙁🙁 I'm so glad to hear you came out okay. Was your vacation cut short? 4w
LeahBergen @vivastory Well, luckily we had taken our camper trailer out to the wedding (on Vancouver Island) so we just kept to ourselves during the worst part of it and isolated. We had pretty mild symptoms for the most part and then wore N95s afterwards if we had to go out anywhere. Camping is pretty ideal for isolating. 😆 4w
vivastory I'm happy to hear that you had a space to isolate safely & that your symptoms were mostly mild. Sounds like you need a vacation from your vacation! 🍹 3w
