Death in Dulwich Cover

Thirty-something single mum Beth Haldane is forced to become Dulwich’s answer to Miss Marple when she stumbles over a murder victim on her first day at work. 

To clear her name, Beth is plunged into a cozy mystery that’s a contemporary twist on Golden Age crime classics. But can she pull it off? She already has a bouncy young son, haughty cat, a fringe with a mind of its own and lots of bills to pay, as she struggles to keep up with the yummy mummies of SE21.

Join Beth in #1 of the London Murder Mystery series, as she discovers the nastiest secrets can lurk in the nicest places.

The Girl In The Gallery (The London Murder Mysteries #2) by Alice Castle

Just when you thought it was safe to go back to Dulwich…

It’s a perfect summer’s morning in the plush south London suburb, and thirty-something Beth Haldane has sneaked off to visit one of her favourite places, the world-famous Picture Gallery.

She’s enjoying a few moments’ respite from juggling her job at prestigious private school Wyatt’s and her role as single mum to little boy Ben, when she stumbles across a shocking new exhibit on display. Before she knows it, she’s in the thick of a fresh, and deeply chilling, investigation.

Who is The Girl in the Gallery? Join Beth in adventure #2 of the London Murder Mystery series as she tries to discover the truth about a secret eating away at the very heart of Dulwich.


Book Review

I am crazy about this series! What, What! I really enjoy books based in London even there’s some nasty murder to go with it. I also love that the sleuth was a single mom battling issues that us moms can relate to.                        giphyI also can see why reviewers are saying she’s the modern Miss Marple and have even compared her to one of my all time favorites, Stephanie Plum!!!💙 


There wasn’t loads of gore and violence in these novels, just great murder mysteries that are sure to captivate many readers with their witty and charming characters and portraying a story that has you antsy waiting for the next novel to arrive. I wish there was more mysteries like this. There was the perfect blend of a fun cozy feel and a murder mystery that keeps you turning pages late through the night! #WorthIt!😀  I loved the characterization in these novels and loved the steady pace that captured my attention from beginning to end! I highly recommend this series to anyone who loves a good murder mystery with great characters are that great added bonus. I give the first two novels in The London Murder Mystery Series a definite 5+ out of 5 freakin’ fantabulous stars!

Hey guys! I am sorry about me posting this fresh again but the glitches with WordPress continue.😣 My post made me sound illiterate and thought that was a bad image for a book blogger. I have to admit that I am not the best at proofreading but when DO deletes one scheduled post and sends a draft version of one I wrote that stinks so back to talking to the “Happiness Engineers” .😕 I also apologize for not being online much lately since I have been trying to cope with the family crisis I blogged about last week. I finally had a great breakdown with lots of ugly crying but once I finally let it all out, I am feeling more like myself! I miss you all and I am hopefully going to get the chance to blog hop to a blog near you!💜

  1. My cousin lives in Dulwich, a short walk from the Picture Gallery.
    (It is now a very trendy and prohibitively expensive area of south London)
    I had better warn her about those murders! 🙂 x
    Best wishes, Pete. xx

    1. Hi Pete, great to hear about your cousin and hope she’s enjoying living in lovely Dulwich (apart from all the murders, of course). Hope she’ll show you around the Picture Gallery when you next visit and you can see the scene of the crime for yourself! Best wishes, Alice

      1. I know the area well, Alice. Most of my family and friends live or lived in South London, including me for a long time. I have been to the DPG a few times in the past, and it’s a lovely setting. 🙂

    2. Warn her indeed, my friend!😀 It’s a small world. 🌎 Sounds lovely and I am not too worried about the murders because the tricounty area that I love in is ranked pretty high up there in the nation. We have some crazy people here like that older teenager sat in a church service where they all welcomed and I think he killed pretty much everybody because of racism. It was horrible but that’s Charleston, SC sometimes! Sorry that you probably have duplicates of this posts in your email. I had to update it this a.m. and had to go through more bologna with WP. 😣

  2. Sounds like fun whodunnits! Though London’s not that special 😉 the Vera Stanhope novels by Ann Cleeves are set where I live, much nicer than London,and the same sort of thing, they’re even a tv series.

      1. They both sound lovely to me! I am sure they will both be heavenly compared to where I live!😀 But I guess we got the beach going for us and the history of Charleston, SC but I am not too find of the beach like many. It seems like no matter what you do, sand goes places it shouldn’t!😵🌊🌉


    1. I haven’t heard of those novels but definitely will have to add them to my never-ending TBR!😵😂 I have read a lot of books based on London recently and it always fascinates me the difference in culture and t traveling through all kinds of new places throughout my books 📚 (and your photos of course!)💜 I definitely want to check out where you live so I am going to hope they have it on Kindle Unlimited if not the Library it is!😀💯📚💖

      1. They might be a bit old school for you Book’em, written in the 1950’s. It’s funny, London is a thing apart from the rest of the country nowadays,it’s mostly for tourists and cockwomble politicians, and rich people who can afford the ginormous mortgages/rents you need to live there. Still there are some nice architectural bits and pieces there. 🤣🤣

    1. Thanks so much, Love!💜 I had to redo it this morning though because WP sent my draft instead of what I did last to fix it up. Argh. I wish they would leave me alone. So annoying but I never knew you didn’t like murder mysteries but to each their own. This one wasn ‘t the typical murder mystery and I really loved the characters which really can make or break a story for me sometimes.😉💥 I hope you are doing well and I’m trying to get back to myself but feel too old and busted to shake it off. Lol. But on a serious note, the kiddos are doing good and we had a family therapy session so I am trying to get back into my groove! Xoxoxo!


  3. Hi Dani, just wanted to say a huge thank you for having me on your blog today, it’s such a fun place to hang out. And a massive thanks for the lovely review – I’m so glad you’re enjoying the series. Beth’s next adventure, Calamity in Camberwell, is out on 13th August and it’s her toughest case yet, so I hope you’ll be reading on xx

I’m really enjoying hanging out on your blog, you have some great commentators with pretty strong views (lol!) and excellent book recommendations, I think I’m going to make it my new home when I’m not writing (as I should be now – working on Beth’s 5th adventure, Revenge on the Rye).
