I am reviewing a copy of A Body In the Bookshop through Quercus Books and Netgalley:

It’s almost Christmas in York but it is as if the Christmas goodwill has not touched anyone yet.

After DS Charolette Banks is suspended from the Police Force after being accused of assaulting a suspect of the burglary of a local bookshop. Librarian Kitt Harley and her friend Evie Bowes know she is not guilty, but why is someone trying to get her in trouble?

Charolette’s boss DI Malcolm Halloran is not in a position to help so Evie Bowes takes it upon herself to help Charolette regain her good name and get her career back. It takes some convincing but she is able to convince Kitt to help as well.
They go from the tight knit community of York’s bestsellers, to the most gossipy bus route in the county. Kitt and Evie are not going to leave anything to chance.

The discovery of a body makes the stakes even higher. For Evie and Kitt the case is as personal as they come. Can they catch the murderer in order to make a bright and Merry Christmas or will they become the killers next victims?

I give A Body in the Bookshop five out of five stars…
