Today I am so thrilled to be one of the blogger’s kicking off the blog tour for Murder Unearthed, the third instalment in the bestselling Kat & Mouse series by Anita Waller, published by Bloodhound Books. Happy publication day Anita!
About the Book:
When DI Tessa Marsden is called to a road traffic accident, she is disturbed by the crime scene she must investigate. She now has a double murder to contend with; two dead girls from the same village.
Realising the murders aren’t linked, Marsden summons the help of the Connection Investigation Agency, run by Kat, a church Deacon, Beth, (known affectionately as Mouse), a computer expert, and Doris, Beth’s feisty grandmother.
When it is discovered that one of the murdered girls was pregnant the case takes an unexpected turn.
Can DI Marsden, with the input of Kat and Mouse, solve the case before another body appears?
Meanwhile, the agency has been asked to track down the long lost son of Ewan Barker. Will Kat, Mouse and Doris find him and reunite him with his father?
This might just be their toughest investigation yet…
I am so excited to be reviewing Murder Unearthed today for two reasons. Firstly this is one of my all time favourite series, and secondly, I am one of characters in this book! Thank-you for making one of my dreams come true Anita and I love what you have done with my character… I think (😂😂)
This is the third instalment in this wonderful series, which just keeps getting better and better with each book.
Heading back to Eyam feels like coming home for me. I can totally see myself living in this sleepy little village which Anita does a great job in describing it and making you feel a part of the town.
As I have mentioned before in my review of Murder Unexpected, I absolutely adore the characters of Kat, Mouse and Doris and the relationship that they share. The chemistry between them is what makes these books so great.
For this mystery, Anita has crafted a thrilling story full of twists and turns that will have you hooked right from the start until the final page. I always try and take my time reading these books as I never want them to end, but Anita creates such amazing stories that I just can’t stop, and I find that I have read them in one sitting!
I have to say that this is my favourite book in the series and it is not because I am a character in the book (that will never get old by the way!), it is due to one of the subplots in the story that involves Doris where we get to see another side to her that we have not yet seen, and it is fabulous! Don’t ever mess with Doris!!
Anita has confirmed that the fourth book in this series will be the last. I am in complete denial about this. I am not ready to say goodbye to these wonderful characters and I hope that she can be convinced in continuing to write more in this amazing series.
Thank-you to Heather Fitt from Bloodhound Books for the stop on the blog tour and a copy of the e-book in exchange for an honest review.

About the Author:
Anita was born in Sheffield, South Yorkshire and has lived all her life there. She has three adult children and seven grandchildren ranging in age from 9 months to 21 years. Anita and Dave have been married almost 49 years!
She wrote Beautiful in 1985 and had it accepted for publication. They were the contract stage when the publishing house went into liquidation.
Like many another book it ended up in the loft until two years ago when she resurrected it, retyped all 100,000 words (it was orginally written on an Amstrad 8256 and all she had was a hard copy!) and sent it off to Bloodhound Books.
She is now retired from my life of being a Patchwork Tutor and HGV driver’s wife and concentrates on patchwork for the pleasure of it and writing. She started writing at around the age of 8 – she clearly remembers writing ‘novels’ at that age which were actually short stories split into chapters!
Anita’s genre is murder – but murder with a good reason behind it!
