Peeky Blinders Book Club

Peeky Blinders audiobook choice for December 2023 – The Christmas Murder Game by Alexandra Benedict. 

Read by Laura Costello

THIS CHRISTMAS IS TO DIE FOR . . . LET THE GAME BEGIN 

Lily Armitage never intended to return to Endgame House – the grand family home where her mother died twenty-one Christmases ago. Until she receives a letter from her aunt, asking her to return to take part in an annual tradition: the Christmas Game. The challenge? Solve twelve clues, to find twelve keys. The prize? The deeds to the manor house.

Lily has no desire to win the house. But her aunt makes one more promise: The clues will also reveal who really killed Lily’s mother all those years ago.

So, for the twelve days of Christmas, Lily must stay at Endgame House with her estranged cousins and unravel the riddles that hold the key not just to the family home, but to its darkest secrets. However, it soon becomes clear that her cousins all have their own reasons for wanting to win the house – and not all of them are playing fair.

As a snowstorm cuts them off from the village, the game turns deadly. Soon Lily realises that she is no longer fighting for an inheritance, but for her life.

Twelve clues. Twelve keys. Twelve days of Christmas.

But who will survive until Twelfth Night?

Peeky Blinders met on the 16th of January to discuss The Christmas Murder Game. 

The group scored this book 3 out of 5.

 

 

 

Peeky Blinders audiobook choice for January 2024 – Cat Lady by Dawn O’Porter.

Read by Daisy Haggard.

It’s safer for Mia to play the part that people expect. She’s a good wife to her husband Tristan, a doting stepmother, she slips on her suit for work each morning like a new skin.

But beneath the surface, there’s another woman just clawing to get out …

When a shocking event shatters the conventional life she’s been so careful to build, Mia is faced with a choice. Does she live for a society that’s all too quick to judge, or does she live for herself?

And if that’s as an independent woman with a cat, then the world better get ready …

Cat Lady will be discussed at the next Peeky Blinders meeting on Tuesday 20th February 2024. This page will be updated with an overall score out of 5 after the group have met.

*** Cat Lady scored 4/5 following a very lively discussion around this book***
