Love and Death among the Cheetahs Paperback / softback
by RHYS BOWEN
Paperback / softback
Georgie and Darcy are finally on their honeymoon in Kenya's Happy Valley, but murder crashes the party in this all-new installment in the New York Times bestselling series. I was so excited when Darcy announced out of the blue that we were flying to Kenya for our extended honeymoon.
Now that we are here, I suspect he has actually been sent to fulfill another secret mission.
I am trying very hard not to pick a fight about it, because after all, we are in paradise!
Darcy finally confides that there have been robberies in London and Paris.
It seems the thief was a member of the aristocracy and may have fled to Kenya.
Since we are staying in the Happy Valley-the center of upper-class English life-we are well positioned to hunt for clues and ferret out possible suspects. Now that I am a sophisticated married woman, I am doing my best to sound like one.
But crikey! These aristocrats are a thoroughly loathsome sort enjoying a completely decadent lifestyle filled with wild parties and rampant infidelity. And one of the leading lights in the community, Lord Cheriton, has the nerve to make a play for me.
While I am on my honeymoon! Of course, I put an end to that right off. When he is found bloodied and lifeless along a lonely stretch of road, it appears he fell victim to a lion.
But it seems that the Happy Valley community wants to close the case a bit too quickly.
Darcy and I soon discover that there is much more than a simple robbery and an animal attack to contend with here in Kenya.
Nearly everyone has a motive to want Lord Cheriton dead and some will go to great lengths to silence anyone who asks too many questions.
The hunt is on! I just hope I can survive my honeymoon long enough to catch a killer. . . .
