March 2017 Debut of the Month.

A snappy, vibrant, romp of a read, set in a 1950’s Devonshire seaside town. Miss Judy Dimont (in her forties), the shrewd and very able journalist for The Riviera Express, investigates the suspicious deaths of two men. The author T. P. Fielden is a journalist, and has set an according tone, it almost feels as though there is a narrator, perhaps the newspaper itself, as pithy observations fly across the page. Information is gradually revealed, though there is enough left unsaid about Judy, to leave me wanting more, good thing this is the start of a new series! With interesting town folk and silver screen stars, there was plenty to occupy my thoughts as I attempted to solve this intruiging whodunit. ‘The Riviera Express’, with a thoroughly modern heroine, is an entertaining, spirited, murder mystery set in a bygone era. ~ Liz Robinson

Reader Reviews

In addition to our Lovereading expert opinion some of our Reader Review Panel were also lucky enough to read and review this title. You can click here to read the full reviews.

  • Jan Kirkcaldy - 'This really was like going back in time, not just to the 50s when the story is set but to good old fashioned crime writing in true Agatha Christie style...this one was sheer escapism. Lovely.'
  • Phylippa Smithson - 'This is a fun though somewhat two dimensional murder-mystery set in the Devonshire Riviera.'
  • Cathy Petersen - 'A good debut that has potential.'
  • Magdalena Vidgen - 'a light and pleasant read, which could give one a couple of hours of innocent pleasure.'
  • Maz Tucker - The book reminded me of an Agatha Christie, it was a bit slow, but it was an enjoyable read...Not having read any of this author before, I will look out for others.'
  • Nicola Lowes - 'A slick and elegant story which has created a younger Miss Marple character in the form of Miss Judy Dimont.'

Here's what one of our members thinks of her bag
A big thank you for the two Lovereading bags I ordered, which have arrived safely. I love mine and will use it with pride. The bags are lovely quality, sturdy and support a good cause in the Rewrap initiative; I think they make the perfect accessory for any book lover. The second bag was a gift for my sister and she says she will take it to her next book group meeting to help spread the Lovereading word. Once again, many thanks. Emily Wright

Synopsis

The Riviera Express (A Miss Dimont Mystery, Book 1) by T. P. Fielden

Murder on the Riviera Express Gerald Hennessey - silver screen star and much-loved heart-throb - never quite makes it to Temple Regis, the quaint Devonshire seaside town on the English Riviera. Murdered on the 4.30 from Paddington, the loss of this great man throws Temple Regis' community into disarray. Not least Miss Judy Dimont -corkscrew-haired reporter for the local rag, The Riviera Express. Investigating Gerald's death, she's soon called to the scene of a second murder, and, setting off on her trusty moped, Herbert, finds Arthur Shrimsley in an apparent suicide on the clifftops above the town beach. Miss Dimont must prevail - for why was a man like Gerald coming to Temple Regis anyway? What is the connection between him and Arthur? And just how will she get any answers whilst under the watchful and mocking eyes of her infamously cantankerous Editor, Rudyard Rhys?

Reviews

'This is a fabulously satisfying addition to the canon of vintage crime. No wonder the author has already been signed up to produce more adventures starring the indefatigable Miss Dimont.' - Daily Express 'Unashamedly cosy, with gentle humour and a pleasingly eccentric amateur sleuth, this solid old-fashioned whodunit is the first in what promises to be an entertaining series.' - The Guardian 'Highly amusing' - Evening Standard 'TP Fielden is a fabulous new voice and his dignified, clever heroine is a compelling new character. This delicious adventure is the first of a series and I can't wait for the next one.' - Wendy Holden, Daily Mail Must have. A golden age mystery.' - Sunday Express 'Tremendous fun' - The Independent'
