Murder & Mayhem #Stirling #CrimeFictionEvent #Review

I have been trying to attend a Murder & Mayhem event for many months now, but with life getting in the way I’ve never managed, until now! Last night I was so excited to be to attending the event in Stirling.

It was lovely catching up with my friends with an early supper before the event. The food was delicious and the conversation and laughter were priceless. I was asked at the table what my thoughts on being the events corpse were? As my whole body was consumed by this hit of nerves, I thought what the hell as the kids would say today YOLO!

So it’s how I found myself lying on the floor of Waterstones Stirling in front of all the authors and audience. After having executed my death beautifully (if I do say so myself)  from poisoning. But who was the murderer?

Murder & Mayhem was brilliant. With each of the Authors/Suspects declaring there innocence to the wonderful PC Plod. The imagination of all the stories was superb and I was in fits of giggles.

After much debate, the audience was then asked to pick who they thought was the culprit. The correct answer was chosen by the lovely Sandra Woodhead my friend and fellow book blogger.  Sandra, then got to pick a book from one of the authors.

The evening was not over, the authors then introduced us to their novels and gave as a personal insight into their own writing journey. It was truly fascinating and I loved every minute.

 

In the audience were some familiar faces, authors Jackie Baldwin, Ian Skewis and Alison Baillie Taylor. Which was a real treat and it was lovely catching up with them too.
