What Am I Reading? But For The Grace

I’m featuring But For the Grace, the second book in the D.C. Smith series by Peter Grainger. I really enjoy British murder mysteries. D.C. Smith is my latest “crush” in the detective ranks. His sense of humor is priceless.

Here’s how the story begins:

Chapter One

     “Hello? Do I have the right number for Sarah Bradley?”
     “Yes, you do.”
     “Could I speak to her?”
     “Not at the moment.”
     “It’s rather important that I do. If I ring back in a few minutes?”
     “Afraid not — she won’t be back until tomorrow afternoon. Who is this?”
     “Irene Miller, from Rosemary House. That’s Mr. Bradley, isn’t it?”
     “Hello Miss Miller — yes, Tony Bradley. Has she had another fall? What’s she broken this time?”

 

What do you think?

Would you keep reading?

    I would keep reading because I really have no clue as to what is going on…intriguing

    I do like the intro and would continue reading.

  5. I enjoy British mysteries too. I haven’t read this one before, but it does sound good!

  6. Vicki says:

    I’d keep going, I want to know if she did break something again, or worse.

  7. Oh this is one detective I haven’t come across yet – and starting with dialogue is unusual but it really works here – a good choice!

    I would keep reading, it definitely pulled me just from the intro.
