A Mistake of Murder by Helen Hollick

I am delighted today to be joining the Coffee Pot Book Club blog tour to shine the spotlight on Helen Hollick’s third and latest Jan Christopher cosy murder mystery, A Mistake of Murder. It was published on January 18th 2023.

What is the book about?

Was murder deliberate – or a tragic mistake?

January 1972. The Christmas and New Year holiday is over and it is time to go back to work. Newly engaged to Detective Sergeant Laurence Walker, library assistant Jan Christopher is eager to show everyone her diamond ring, and goes off on her scheduled round to deliver library books to the housebound – some of whom she likes; some, she doesn’t.

She encounters a cat in a cupboard, drinks several cups of tea… and loses her ring.

When two murders are committed, can Jan help her policeman uncle, DCI Toby Christopher and her fiancé, Laurie, discover whether murder was a deliberate deed – or a tragic mistake?
