Book Review: Murder at The Dolphin Hotel

Murder at the Dolphin Hotel (A Miss Underhay Mystery #1)

Murder at the Dolphin Hotel by Helena Dixon

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Set in 1930’s Devon, this is a good old fashioned murder mystery.
Kitty is running the Dolphin hotel while her formidable grandmother is off looking after a great aunt who has broken her leg. Grandmother doesn’t seem to believe that Kitty is capable of looking after the place and has hired a new security man, ex-army captain Matthew Bryant. But what Kitty doesn’t know (at the start, at least) is that her life is in danger.

There’s plenty of mystery and a few cold blooded murders, with enough twists and turns to keep you on your toes. There’s an ongoing mystery of Kitty’s mother’s disappearance, which will probably come up in later books as will the slow burning romance between Kitty and Matthew.

I really enjoyed this book.
