Book reviews by D.G. Kaye

 

Today’s book review is for Christoph Fischer’s – Over My Dead Body: Murder at Eurovision. Christoph is another of my favorite authors who took the plunge into writing cozy mysteries with Book 1 in this series, The Body in the Snow. Christoph is also a prolific historical fiction writer, one of my favorite genres to read, and he never disappoints, not matter what genre he writes in.  What a gift to be able to write as a multi-genre author. If you’re looking for a fun, easy read with colorful characters and a whodunit that will keep you guessing til the end, you will enjoy this book.

Blurb:

On her return from a cruise ship gig Bebe Bollinger learns that fellow Welsh singer Bonnie Tyler has decided to enter a European Song comptition for the UK. While Bebe jealously watches the pre-publicity trail for ‘Eurovision’ in Malmö, a string of ‘odd accidents’ endangers several participants of the competition. This stirs her desire for playing detective again but also a curiosity to check out the suitability of Eurovision for her own career.
Follow Bebe’s continued search for fame and a comeback before it’s too late, step into the weird world that is Eurovision fandom and see how Bebe gets on with her naughty daughter and deals with those evil TV presenters.

 

My 5 Star Review:

Another fun read in this cozy mystery series, Book 2 of the Bebe Bollinger series. Although this book is part of a series, both books could definitely be read as standalones. Each of the books takes us into the life of flamboyant almost ‘has been’ singer Bebe Bollinger, looking to make her musical comeback after the peak of her fame began to fade.

In Over my Dead Body, that’s exactly what Bebe plans to avoid when she decides to kill two birds with one stone by going to visit the annual Eurovision music contest being held in Sweden. When Bebe’s friend Tom the blogger, convinces her to join him in Malmo for the event to put herself back in the limelight and gossips to her that mysterious accidents have been occurring on the set, Bebe decided it would be a great idea to get herself some publicity while getting another chance to put her amateur detective skills to work.

Fischer has a fun writing style in this book and brings us some wonderfully painted colorful characters and descriptions of the goings on, enlightening us to what Eurovision represents. As well as being introduced to some of the characters taking part in the competition, Fischer brings back Beth, ex-cop and friend who she invites into her private investigation, as well as her troublesome daughter Helena who seems to know where to find her mother no matter what country she is in.

This book is a quick-paced. fun read and I do hope Mr. Fischer will be coming out with a new story about Bebe again. Bebe could probably have her own TV series with the no shortage of pickles she gets herself into.
