RELEASE BLITZ AND REVIEW: Murder Most Actual by Alexis Hall

Murder Most Actual by Alexis Hall

Murder Most Actual by Alexis Hall is now live!

From the author of Boyfriend Material and Rosaline Palmer Takes the Cake comes a cozy mystery that revisits the Golden Age of detective fiction, starring a heroine who’s more podcaster than private eye and topped with a lethal dose of parody — perfect for fans of Clue, Knives Out, and Only Murders in the Building!

When up-and-coming true crime podcaster Liza and her corporate financier wife Hanna head to a luxurious hotel in the Scottish Highlands, they’re hoping for a chance to rekindle their marriage – not to find themselves trapped in the middle of an Agatha Christie-esque murder mystery with no way home. But who better to take on the case than someone whose entire profession relies on an obsession with all things mysterious and macabre? Though some of her fellow guests may consider her an interfering new media hack, Liza knows a thing or two about crime and – despite Hanna’s preference for waiting out the chaos behind a locked door – might be the only one capable of discovering the killer. As the bodies rack up and the stakes rise, can they save their marriage — and their lives?

Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐



This was a lot of fun! A cozy mystery with established sapphic couple and a whole cast weird hotel guests! This is a quirky mystery investigated by Liza and Hanna. Liza’s true crime podcast was very interesting.  Some of the dialogues and the way some characters speak took me out of the story. The mystery was a lot of fun and I really enjoyed it. You just have to roll with the various murder and don’t it too seriously. I loved Hanna and Liza. Their marriage is on the rocks and I liked the way they developed it. I love how they communicate with each other instead of causing misunderstandings. I do wish we got a bit more of their relationship but overall I had a lot of fun. *ARC provided by the author via Valentine’s PR in exchange for an honest and unbiased review
