Book Review – Murder on a Midsummer Night – Miss Fisher Book 17 – thoroughly enjoyable

Here’s the blurb;

“The year is 1929, and Melbourne is in the grip of an exhausting heatwave. But for elegant and irrepressible private investigator Phryne Fisher, the temperature is the least of her worries. She finds herself simultaneously investigating the apparent suicide of a man on St Kilda beach, and trying to find a lost child.”

Murder on a Midsummer Night is, I believe, one of the stories that hasn’t been made into a tv show. It’s quite nice to find one that hasn’t! As such, I got to appreciate the delight that is a Miss Fisher murder mystery without already knowing ‘who dun it’.

I am a self-confessed fan of these books, and probably also the time period, as I also love a good Poirot! Not that the two could be any more different if they tried. As such, I always expect to enjoy them, and enjoy this story I did very much. It is one of the more cleverly put together of the novels, with all the main characters making an appearance at some point, and not one, but two good mysteries to solve.

Thoroughly enjoyable. Thanks to Netgalley for my copy.

One thought on “Book Review – Murder on a Midsummer Night – Miss Fisher Book 17 – thoroughly enjoyable”

  1. I haven’t read any of these books, but love the TV series. I love a good murder mystery – or any crime, come to that. The time period does it for me, too. Your review has certainly convinced me to add this book to my TBR list. Unfortunately, it’s already very long. 🙂
