Reviews for ‘Death at Whitewater Church’

A beguiling heroine – clever sympathetic and bearing a weight of guilt . . . This is Andrea Carter’s first book; she’ll go far (The Times)

Carter excels in re-creating the cloistered, gossipy confines of a small Irish village…the Inishowen peninsula community where everybody knows everybody else’s business is a fine stand-in for the mannered drawing-room society of a Christie mystery (Sunday Times)

Set in the ruggedly beautiful landscape of the Inishowen peninsula in Donegal, this assured debut mystery by Dublin-based barrister Andrea Carter introduces country solicitor and amateur sleuth Benedicta O’Keeffe (Irish Independent)

The colourful cast of characters may be fictional, but the landscapes, towns and villages are instantly recognisable (Irish Daily Mail)

A promising start (The Sunday Times Crime Club)

Death at Whitewater Church is a charming debut that bodes well for Andrea Carter (Irish Times)

I adored this traditional crime novel; it’s modern day Agatha Christie with Ben as Miss Marple (Irish Examiner)

‘It’s like a modern day Agatha Christie set in a small community with all the alliances, secrets and rivalry such a place can engender. There are enough twists to hold the interest throughout and it builds to a crescendo in a dramatic and highly satisfying close.’  Books Ireland Magazine

Reviews for ‘Treacherous Strand’

‘Carter creates a real page-turner with this, her second novel, giving us a wonderfully feisty, clever and warm character in Ben.’  Irish Times
 
‘…a richly drawn palette of suspects. Andrea Carter’s second Inishowen mystery copper-fastens the promise of the first Ben O’Keeffe adventure published last year.’ Irish Independent
 
 the ending is satisfying..there’s plausibility, there is that moment where you say ‘that was good’…It would appeal to a lot of people. Definitely a holiday read. ‘   Arena RTE Radio 1
