A dead body. Multiple disguises. Can an amateur sleuth see through the charade – or become a tragic victim? 

Young military widow, Dotty Sayers, is delighted with her new job at an auction house in Britain’s picturesque Cotswolds. She agrees to take part in a Remembrance parade to commemorate her husband and his fallen comrades. But drama ensues when an unknown soldier is found dead.

Dotty assists the police and appraises objects found at the victim’s house, but rather than identifying the deceased, she discovers numerous personas. When a suspect is arrested, and Dotty is asked to look after Earl Grey, a British Blue cat, she realizes appearances can be deceiving. Can she track down the real culprit and prevent an innocent man from being imprisoned?

Can Dotty unmask the killer without putting her own life at risk?  

Fake Death is the first book in the captivating Dotty Sayers Antique Mystery series. If you like intriguing mysteries, entertaining characters and the glorious British countryside, then you’ll adore Victoria Tait’s enthralling tale.

*I received a free copy of this book which I voluntarily chose to write an honest review for.

I have highly enjoyed Tait's other series so I was eager to try this start to a new one. We meet a Dotty recently widowed military spouse who is trying to figure out what sort of life she wants to live now. Set in the English countryside we get plenty of wonderful settings as she goes about living but at the same time she finds herself in the middle of a murder mystery. She had a new job at an auction house that leads to her appraising items in the victims home but while doing so she stumbles across pieces of several identities. This leads to all sorts of surprising twists along with an adorable kitty that will keep the readers attention at the mystery plays out making for a solid start to a new cozy series. I really liked it so I give it 4/5 stars.

About Victoria Tait


I was born and raised in Yorkshire, UK, and never expected to travel the world. But I fell for an Army Officer, and I’ve followed him from Northern Ireland, up to the Scottish Highlands, across to Africa and the Kenyan Savannah, back to the British Cotswolds, and we are now living in Sarajevo, in Bosnia and Herzegovina, in Southern Europe. I never expected to be an author, but all this moving is not ideal for holding down a job. Instead, I’ve taken the experiences of the places I’ve lived to write vivid and evocative cozy mystery books with determined female sleuths. I have two fast-growing teenage boys, and together we’ve learnt to ski on the Bosnian mountains. I also enjoy horse riding, mountain biking and I’ve started running as a way to improve my physical fitness, mental wellbeing and shed some excess pounds.
