Title: A Beginner’s Guide to Murder
Author: Rosalind Stopps
I will admit I wasn't sure what to expect with after all three 70-year-old women and one teenage girl.
The story starts off with the back story of the 3 and what made these women want to protect the teenage girl and well plan a murder. Rosalind Stopps uses a lot of current questions ask by many older generations which is when did we become invisible to the world?
A Beginner Guide to Murder is a dark murder mystery that will have readers laughing and falling in love with three little old ladies. Yes just the right twist to keep readers hooked.

Grace, Meg and Daphne, all in their seventies, are minding their own business while enjoying a cup of tea in a café, 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 realize 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.
