“A cracking example of cosy crime” – Katie Fforde, internationally bestselling romantic novelist
“Debbie Young is best known for her short stories, full of wit and with a clever look on life. Best Murder in Show is her first foray into longer fiction, but she has managed to bring all the aspects that make her writing so enjoyable to this, the first in what I hope will be a fun series.The book contains a surfeit of suspects, much clever word play, and a plot that will keep you reading long after you should have gone to sleep.A highly recommended read for all fans of classic mysteries.”- David Penny, Author of the Thomas Berrencourt crime series
“I love Debbie Young’s writing. It is full of warmth, witty characters and wonderful humour. This is her first novel (do read her short stories – Marry In Haste is a lovely collection for example) and it introduces us to Sophie Sayers, named after Young’s favourite crime writer (mine too!) Dorothy L Sayers. This is a real page turner, and a proper feel good book – Debbie Young is an author whose aim is to make you smile, and in this book there are characters to make you giggle and clever lines worthy of Dorothy herself.The crime is more a backdrop to the character development and the plot that is most definitely romantic rather than very mysterious or suspenseful. But that is a small gripe.This is certainly a series to watch out for.” – Suzie Grogan, 10Radio presenter, “Talking Books”
“For an entertaining, fun, and witty read you’ll want to pick up this Sophie Sayers book. I couldn’t put it down because the characters are real, the twists are humorous as well as shocking. In a little village story, with a wide cast from the nosy shop owner to the village drunk, everyone with their varied differences comes together for the summer show. The story is injected with comedy amongst the crime and you will have trouble not falling in love with the flawed and adorable Sophie.” – Amie McCracken, author and editor
