Title: The English Boys
Author: Julia Thomas
Stars: 5 Out of 5
A superbly written murder mystery that will keep your interest from beginning to end. The manner in which the story unfolds allows you, the reader, to form opinions and deductions which may or may not be correct in the end. I thoroughly enjoyed the ending and felt that justice was well served. After reading the book what opinion will you formulate?
I rated this book five stars for content, plot and the ability to hold my interest.
I received an ARC from Netgalley for my unbiased review.
Daniel Richardson and his best friend, Hugh Ashley-Hunt, both rising British actors, are in love with the same woman, the free-spirited Tamsyn Burke. Reluctantly, Daniel steps aside when Tamsyn decides to marry Hugh. Shortly before the wedding, however, she's murdered, and suspicion falls on the family, friends, and associates present.
Motivated by both Hugh's grief and his own, Daniel joins forces with Tamsyn's younger sister, Carey, to find out who killed her. In the process of digging into Tamsyn's past, Daniel tries to discover what secret she was hiding, and why someone close to her might want to silence her forever.
