Book of the Month for December – The Thursday Murder Club by Richard Osman

The first novel in the record-breaking, best-selling series about four friends in a retirement village who meet up once a week to investigate unsolved murders. However, when a vicious murder takes place on their doorstep, The Thursday Murder Club find themselves in the middle of their first live case. The unlikely foursome might be getting on a bit but they have a few tricks up their collective sleeves to try to catch the killer. This warm, witty and affectionate saga will have you gripped and as soon as you finish this big-hearted lesson in why you should never underestimate the elderly, you will be desperate to read the rest of the series.  I read them all in a week and eagerly await the next one.

This genre is ‘cosy crime’. An oxymoron surely?

I was terrified of going through the menopause and whilst I glided through relatively unscathed, I didn't entirely escape its attempts to knock me down I firmly believe there is a positive side the menopause and to being an older woman in the 21st century. In my fifties I trained as a fitness instructor, which I did as a side hustle to my regular job of a college librarian. I also took up belly dancing and danced on stage in a city theatre and created my own fitness classes with hula hoops. Last year at the age of 61 I ditched the library job and now buy and sell vintage jewellery, run fitness classes and work part time from home in a customer services role. It ain't over till its over.
