Why did Joyce Beecham die in hospital when only hours earlier she was happily preparing lunch at home? As lead investigator for her newly-formed business ‘Watts Happening? Investigations’, Olivia Watts is engaged by legal acquaintance Alexander Beecham to investigate his mother’s suspicious death. Olivia uncovers heated sibling rivalry; a hidden marriage and disturbing financial transactions.
While shaking family skeletons, she meets eccentric inventor, Lord Bennington, who admits close ties to the Beecham family. Olivia later learns of an estranged niece and quickly elevates her to prime suspect. Seeking assistance from former supervising officer and on/off boyfriend DCI Stafford, Olivia must sidestep complex personality conflicts of a family at war if she is to uncover the truth behind the matriarch’s death.

This was a real ‘whodunnit’ with a clever plot which made you question your thoughts on which of the three siblings really was responsible for the death of Joyce Beecham. I like the character of Olivia Watts and look forward to the next story.
The Author, Paige Elizabeth Turner. A brilliant writer who keeps you guessing to the end. She really tests you on your thoughts.
