Another great installment of this mystery series revolved around a group of retirees who live to solve unsolved crimes. I‘m apprehensive about the next book, as I think our hearts are going to be broken. I definitely recommend this series. 4.25⭐️

Number 3 in the Thursday Murder Club is my favorite so far. I just love the cast of characters and the snarky humor, combined with a good mystery and so much heart ❤️ This is my January ##Doublespin @TheAromaofBooks

TheAromaofBooks Woohoo!! 2mo
JMPemberton Was my favourite so far too. Have the fourth book reserved at the library…can‘t wait! 2mo

My first 6 of 2024. All enjoyable, but a few were underwhelming. The Bullet That Missed cemented my love for The Thursday Murder Club series. The Push will stay with me for a long time. Mythos was so well done…I just don‘t like Greek myths it turns out, however accessibly written they are.

Another brilliant installment in The Thursday Murder Club series. I can tell that in the next book, we will start to see the beginning of the end for some. It makes me sad. In the meantime, though, there is murder, mystery, money, mayhem, and more for the Club. Together, they are remarkable and I love their accumulation of new “members”. May they live long and prosper. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

We went camping this weekend and I got to finish this lovely book by the fire. I love this gang so much! I kept giggling to myself and was getting strange looks from the friends we were with 😅
The mystery was just as riveting and, combined with the short chapters, I blew through this story to find out how it ended.

It seems like everyone has moved on to book 4, and I'm slowly limping along behind. Oh well, these are about (fictional) cold cases anyway! This one was another delight. 💚

I thoroughly enjoyed this third book in the series. Great plotting, engaging characters and Osman‘s dry sense of humour. A cosy, comforting read with a fun puzzle to keep you guessing. Skilfully done. I highly recommend if you like murder mysteries with a British sensibility.

An epic third installment! I‘m so excited for whenever the fourth is coming out!
Osman makes me laugh and cry in the span of a sentence. I feel like in this book especially, the message is really that people will surprise you, often for the better, so don‘t underestimate them. We also added some new characters to the gang that I love equally now!

The gang are investigating the cold case of a journalist who apparently drove off a cliff into the sea while working on uncovering a VAT scam. CCTV captured an image of someone in the car with her on the way to the cliff but who?

My heart did sink a bit when one of the baddies from the previous book put in an appearance in this book because I don't like recurring villains but actually it was very well done. Can't wait for the next one.

Finished on Thursday last, so fitting for the Thursday Murder Club. I‘m late to the party with this series as my new work colleague recommended it 2 months ago & I‘ve now binged the 3 available books & can‘t wait for the 4th. The books have me chuckling one minute, trying to outsmart these lovable pensioners the next minute & finally tearing up with all the emotions. In this one, the crew is working on a cold case while Elizabeth is faced with ⬇️

DebinHawaii …a difficult choice; kill an old friend from her agency days or else someone will kill her new bestie, Joyce. The combination of our 4 MCs & the new friends they have “adopted” into the club is a win. I agree with the popular feedback that these books just keep getting better, so if you aren‘t reading them yet, what are you waiting for?! On my #SeriesLove2023 list for sure! 💚 (edited) 8mo

Maybe it‘s because this series is a recent fave (I binged the first two books & my hold for the third tagged book just came in & I‘m trying to clear reading space for it this week), but I feel the core four elderly friends in the Thursday Murder Club have a definite #StandByMe vibe with each other & the friends they have picked up along the way.
They have each other‘s back “Whenever you're in trouble won't you stand by me…” ❤️

Eggs Well done👏🏻👍🏼👏🏻 9mo

The Thursday Murder Club stories are pure fun and I can‘t wait for the next one.This, the third in series, has a twisted plot, and the final reveals are almost ridiculously complicated but it works! I have always loved the Greek chorus role played by Joyce‘s diary entries. The other members of the gang are all here, although their lives are changing. When we lose Stephen, literally or mentally, it will break my heart. This again, is a must read!

The Osman magic continues! Considering the unbroken streak of three books as good or better than each of their predecessors, I hope this is a long running series...eagerly awaiting my library's acquisition of the latest.
Such compassion in how people are viewed and treated, flaws and all, and yet, chock full of dangerous hijinks! 1/2

Robotswithpersonality 2/2 Clever and funny, occasionally sweet, with a side of pathos and the bonus of witnessing the slow crumbling of toxic masculinity on many fronts.
Never fails to lead me down a merry path of who-mighta-dunnit, before veering off into the breakneck switchbacks of reveals.

5-20-23: My 55th finished book of 2023! Book 3 of this fabulous series. The Thursday Murder Club is back! This time around they are joined by a KGB colonel, a Viking, a chief constable who fancies himself a writer, a TV host and his makeup woman, Alan the dog. 10 years ago, Bethany Waites was murdered but the case was never solved. Leave it up to this gang to figure it out. Full of heart and laughter as usual. Can‘t wait for book 4!

Another excellent book in the Thursday Murder Club series. Took me a while to get into this one (possibly my mood rather than the book) but loved the way it came together at the end and the twists. Good couple of new characters added for this book, I hope they appear in the next one.

The Thursday Murder Club take an interest in two murders, ten years apart. Elizabeth is given a mission…kill or be killed. She contemplates what to do and with the support of her best friends, local TV stars and ex KGB, can the new mystery be solved before it‘s too late?
When reading cosy mysteries they can be dull and lack excitement but this story is action packed throughout. A wonderful set of characters, british humour and full of quirkiness.

So good! I loved being back with the brilliant gang from Coopers Chase again, embracing life and solving mysteries. They keep adding characters to their found family, and I enjoy every minute! Finished this one after helping to set up for a friend‘s wedding and waiting for the DJ to set up. They have books as part of their centerpieces so it seemed fitting to snap a photo! #BookspinBingo @TheAromaofBooks

I planned to finish Six of Crows for #20in4 but even with my #JanuaryPagesChallenge I don't think that will happen but I will continue and finish at some point (I really like this book!).

So I am picking my January book for #ReadingBracket2023 - I read a few really good books but the tagged is just fun!

Make a great day everyone -❄️

There are more tender moments in this 3rd instalment which I like. I cannot wait for the next book, and the movie adaptation.

How does this series just keep getting better? There were multiple twists I did not see coming alongside the ever present dry humor. Joyce remains my favorite thirsty septuagenarian. Somehow this one had just as much, if not more, tender moments that just made you want to give everyone a hug.

Who would you cast?

Libby1 Betty White would have made a great Joyce! I must look for the article you posted. Are the film producers going to keep the English setting? 14mo
Libby1 My immediate first thoughts go to people like Helen Mirren and Judy Dench, but I‘d love for them to pick other, less well known (outside of the UK) actors. 14mo
Sharpeipup @libby1 I agree on both points! 14mo

Libby1 @Sharpeipup - I was chatting with my husband about this last night. Last year we watched an Ann Cleves adaptation called (I think) The Long Call. Anita Dobson was in it and she was SPECTACULAR. I would love to see her in more things like this. On a side note, if she had a role wouldn‘t it be brilliant to see her husband Brian May (of the band Queen) in a cameo? 14mo
Sharpeipup @libby1 not familiar with her work but I have decided Gerard Butler should maybe be Bogdan. 14mo
