About Author:

E.J. Lamprey

I live behind a computer and venture out occasionally to enjoy life in action packed weeks here and there A bit unorthodox, but it works for me.The 9th book of the Lawns whodunit series is out and already the 10th, and last, is sending tendrils into my sleep The second Clarissa novel is brand new The Joanna books are resting, for now Right now, as I write this, I live in a little town on the Firth of Forth with an irascible bulldog and a marmalade cat This could change at any moment this is a slightly breathless time The sun is still shining in my Indian summer but I do have one eye on the clock four years now, how much longer can it last It s wonderful.If I were reviewing my whodunits I would call them lightweight, but true to the traditional Detective Club formula tightly plotted, topical, challenging the armchair detective to solve them ahead of the characters, every clue and red herring fairly presented They are holiday books in the same gentle tradition as, say, Alexander McCall Smith, maybe a touch of Hamish Macbeth easy to pick up, easy to read, enough plot to distract during a frustrating 2 hour delay at the airport There s nothing to make the reader blush, cry or recoil, except possibly my punctuation If you like blushing, head for the Clarissa ones instead I also occasionally break free of the fiercely structured world of whodunits to escape in space and time by writing as Joanna Lamprey.

  • Frances Thompson

    Please note my review should be a 3.5 stars but sadly doesn't allow for that all-important half star that this book deserves. I hope that changes one day soon!The author sent me this book in exchange for an honest review and so I was very pleasantly surprised to find it a gentle, but authentic and tension-building murder mystery set in a very unique residential home for elderly folk with interesting backgrounds (indeed this is a pre-requisite for a resident's acceptance). What a great idea! And [...]

    I picked this book up from my vast to-read pile this weekend because I felt in need of a relaxing, undemanding read and a bit of light entertainment. I was not disappointed, greatly enjoying this well-plotted cosy mystery set in a Scottish retirement complex.The reader is flung right into the heart of the mystery from the opening page, and is soon immersed among a lively and entertaining cast of characters of a certain age, all trying but not always managing to get along within the confines of a [...]

    I could have sworn that Miss Maple was back, in Scottish guise. Is it ever fair to compare, possibly not, but this is very Agatha Christie-esk for the modern century. 'One Two' is a great first in series, introducing some wonderful characters of senior years. Lamprey has a very easy read style and an ironic, subtle humour that says most by what it leaves out.The plot is complex enough with a couple of classic murders, lots of possible clues and badly attached leads, some more doggy than others. [...]

    As the author points in the introduction, this is a short work, and a free one, to introduce us to the setting and characters. I liked both very much, though the pacing seemed very rushed at the end. But, I do plan to read on.

    As I (the author) can't review it with any credibility myself, these are reviews on , and n: (the star rating is the average on ) Good plot, well written and easy to read. Got so caught up in it, that I read it in one sitting. Was like an Agatha Christie, light-hearted and no in-your-face violence. Really looking forward to the next one.n This is a perfect "beach" read. Characters were enjoyable and story is well plotted. Give it a try if you want to read something entertaining & easy to re [...]


  • Georgia Rose

    I really liked the setting for this easy read opener of what promises to be an excellent series of books. The retirement village is for ‘interesting’ people who are older, but not too old and some of them naturally get involved in solving this gentle mystery. Lamprey gives us an original setting, who wouldn’t want to live somewhere where your everyday needs are so well catered for, which is ideal for the spawning of future stories. She skilfully draws her characters so they are fully round [...]

    If Grasshopper Lawns was a real retirement village I would immediately apply to be put on the waiting list; sadly the Admissions Board would probably reject my application because I have lots of close relations and my life has been too boring to meet their rigorous standards. I very much enjoyed reading this book; I have given it 4 stars but wish there was a way to give it 4.5. The well-rounded relationships between the characters and the pace of the plot make this a story I didn't want to put d [...]


  • Barbara

    This is a wonderful first novel. The characters are clear and the plot is lively and keeps you guessing all the way with red herrings and twists and turns. People and events are described with understanding and tongue in cheek humour.I adore the main personalities especially William! There HAS to be more William. I wish he and Grasshopper Lawns were real. I would sign up immediately, I love the idea of interesting neighbours and some of these are people you can just imagine becoming instant frie [...]


  • Cheryl

    First in a series, this book is a really good cosy. I love the titles the author has usedry clever. This one introduces the residents of Grasshopper Lawns, a retirement community in Scotland. All the retirees seem to have lived very interesting lives which makes for lots of juicy reasons for murder! The characters are well-rounded, the plots are realistic and loads of fun and mystery are mixed in. I really enjoyed this book and have the rest of the series to read. If you like cosies, you'll love [...]


  • Cathy

    This short story book has an interesting set of sleuths, but I have enough series on my plate and don't need another one.
