Review of……

Dead in Venice By Fiona Leitch


Bella Tyson is a famous 40-something crime writer suffering from writer’s block ever since a bitter divorce two years before. When a fan offers her the use of an apartment in Venice, Bella jumps at it, hoping a change of scene will have her writing again. Once there, she soon meets Will, a charming Englishman, who shows her around the city.

Enchanted by both Will and her new surroundings, Bella decides to write a supernatural murder mystery and begins researching local legends and the city’s more sinister side, including an illicit visit to the island of Poveglia, spooky former home of Venice’s asylum. Soon Bella uncovers more than she has bargained for and finds herself enmeshed in a series of gruesome real-life murders that uncannily mirror the legends she is researching.

As she and Will join forces to investigate, real life and local lore merge disconcertingly – for nothing in Venice turns out to be what seems, including Will….

My Thoughts:

I received a copy of this book from The Fiction Cafe – Review Group and publishers for an honest review – Thank you

This is the first that I have read from this author.   It was well-written and well-paced novel and kept me wanting to know more about Venice.

This is a great romantic tour of the sights of Venice….not, although it is obviously set in Venice, and there is a smattering of romance, it is also a grotty tale of intrigue and murder.  I enjoyed it, and it was a fast read.  I am hoping that there will be a sequel to this.  If you are looking for a fast – paced book, then give this one a try.  I am giving this 5 Stars.
