Moonflower Murders : A Novel Anthony Horowitz

 Susan Ryland lives a seemingly idyllic life running a small hotel with her handsome partner on a Greek island, but the hotel has run into money troubles, and she misses her old somewhat glamorous editing career. When she is asked to investigate the disappearance of Cecily Traherne by Cecily's parents, she jumps at the chance to go back to England. (The money also helps)! Cecily  read a book that Susan edited, and her disappearance may be linked to a murder at the hotel and  the book. As we get deeper into this involving story, we also read this book, another detective story featuring the Poirot-like character, Atticus Punt, a book which contains the clues to the mystery. 

This is an extremely clever and well-written novel, which actually involves two detective stories! I actually preferred the one with Atticus, being old-fashioned and cosy. I found the other one a bit sordid, and it annoyed me a bit because of a nasty character called Lisa, but I look forward to seeing the film.

I received this free ebook from Edelweiss in return for an honest review.
