Books to Read & Enjoy by Helen Hollick

Jan Christopher Cosy Mysteries
#1 A MIRROR MURDER
#2 A MYSTERY OF MURDER

“I sank into this gentle cosy mystery story with the same enthusiasm and relish as I approach a hot bubble bath, (in fact this would be a great book to relax in the bath with!) and really enjoyed getting to know the central character, a shy young librarian, and the young police officer who becomes her romantic interest. The nostalgic setting of the 1970s was balm, so clearly evoked, and although there is a murder at the heart of the story, it was an enjoyable comfort read.”
Debbie Young, author of the Sophie Sayers cosy mysteries
