Firstly, I want cupcakes!

Just when you thought nothing else could happen on Whisper Island, we get The 39 Cupcakes.

Zara Keane has done it again with this latest installment in the Movie Club Mysteries series.

Our intrepid PI Maggie Doyle has got to be the unluckiest person on Whisper Island with her propensity to fall across dead people! 

The stories in this series are all a little fun, a little flirty, a little complicated and a lot intriguing.  Ms Keane likes to throw in a lot of red herrings, so even though you think you know whodunnit - nope!  You will be wrong!

I also adore the slow burn of Maggie and Liam's romance throughout the series.  Again, just when we think things will move along, there is someone or something in the way, however they are true to each other, and I can't wait till things really work for them.

Characters we have come to know and love throughout the series are alive and kicking, and I can't help but laugh at their shenanigans - especially Lenny.

I really do enjoy my visits to the Island, and can't wait to see what Ms Keane brings us next.
