Death At The Dakota by M.K.Graff – Book Review



Nurse Trudy Genova is making plans to take her relationship to NYPD detective Ned O’Malley to the next level, when she lands a gig as medical consultant on a film shoot at the famed Dakota apartment building in Manhattan, which John Lennon once called home. Then star Monica Kiley goes missing, a cast member turns up dead, and it appears Trudy might be next.

Meanwhile Ned tackles a mysterious murder case in which the victim is burned beyond recognition. When his investigations lead him back to the Dakota, Trudy finds herself wondering: how can she fall in love if she can’t even survive?

Readers of Death Unscripted, the first book in the Trudy Genova Manhattan Mystery series, will find the same pleasures in this sequel: fast pacing, engaging characters, twists and turns on the way to a satisfying close.

From the award-winning author of The Nora Tierney English Mysteries, this second series is a winner. Once again M.K. Graff reveals her talents in crafting this delightful mix of amateur sleuth and police procedural.

Trudy is a nurse working with a TV company in New York, amongst the glamour of the film industry and of course the Dakota…

She finds herself involved in a murder case, due to her nosy, but endearing nature and her medical background. Trudy is such a likeable character, a strong, astute woman with an absolutely charming wit that will make you laugh out loud at times. There is also a little romance with a detective too…

A clever, well written and nicely paced murder mystery with a classic cosy feel to it….a young Miss Marple?…..some nice twists too that will keep you guessing…

Thank you to Damppebbles Blog Tours for the opportunity to participate in this blog tour and for the promotional materials and a free copy of the ebook. This is my honest, unbiased review.
