Meet Epiphany Bloom: devoted cat owner, well-meaning walking disaster zone – daring detective?
Epiphany lives in a cozy corner of London, scraping a living from a baffling variety of odd jobs. But lately work has been hard to come by, and now even her beloved cat Most is feeling the pinch. The trouble is, every job she has ends up going wrong somehow. When an office temp assignment with a private investigator leads to her mistakenly being set on the trail of a missing boy, it seems this time is doomed to be no exception!
Matty is the young son of wealthy but distant American parents, and Epiphany would desperately like to believe he’s just run away so she can go back to temping and collect her pay cheque in peace. But he doesn’t know anyone in London – where would he run to? And there’s been no word from him for days.
In a battle between her soft heart and her empty wallet, Epiphany’s heart wins every time. Most will just have to endure the value cat food a little longer…
As rumours reach her that one of Matty’s few friends is also missing, now presumed dead, she realises she’s running out of time to bring him home safe. Her investigation takes her from grand Kensington mansions to scruffy East End cafes, where she finds a clue that will crack the case at last.
But by now she knows how far the people who have taken Matty will go to get what they want – will she be able to reach him in time?
You all know I love a cosy mystery just as much as I love romance, and this was a brilliant debut. I loved the funny, quirky main character who manages to get herself into scrapes and make bad decisions all while you’re cheering her on.
The mystery was well-written and had a brilliant conclusion.
This is definitely a series to dive head-first into. It’s funny, well-written, and incredibly entertaining. What more could you ask for?!
