TA Williams: Murder In Tuscany

Today I’m joining the blog tour for Murder In Tuscany. My review is written with thanks to Rachel Gilbey at Rachel’s Random Resources for inviting me on the blog tour and to Boldwood Books for my copy of the book.


A brand new cozy crime series set in gorgeous Tuscany…It’s murder in paradise!

A remote retreat…

Nestled high in the Tuscan hills lies Villa Volpone, home to renowned crime writer Jonah Moore and his creative writing course. It’s also the last place retired DCI Dan Armstrong expected to spend his retirement! Dan’s no writer, but maybe this break will help him to think about the next chapter in his own life story?

A gruesome murder…

But only days into the course, Jonah Moore is found stabbed to death with his award-winning silver dagger! And Dan finds himself pulled out of retirement with a killer to catch.

Eleven possible suspects.

The other guests all seem shocked by Jonah’s death, but Dan knows that one of them must be lying. And as he and Italian Commissario Virgilio Pisano begin to investigate it quickly becomes clear that everyone at Villa Volpone has secrets to hide…

But can Dan discover who the murderer is before they strike again?

A gripping new murder mystery series by bestselling author T.A. Williams, perfect for fans of Lee Strauss and Beth Byers.


I’ve really enjoyed TA Williams’ romantic comedies over the last few years so I was intrigued to see that he has branched out into a new genre. Unsurprisingly, Murder in Tuscany, is just as enjoyable and it has many of the elements that made the author’s previous novels so wonderful: vivid descriptions of a picturesque area of Italy, lots of lively characters and a beautiful dog. 

The central character in Murder In Tuscany is DCI Dan Armstrong. I found him to be a very likeable character – friendly and good humoured with an interesting personal story. As well as the investigation, I also found his personal life interesting and hoped that things would work out well for him. 

The investigation into the murder at Villa Volpone is highly engaging and as there are a number of guests staying at the resort, this means a large number of suspects. They all have colourful backgrounds and there are several with a motive for murder, especially as the victim was not particularly likeable and I was intrigued as I read on to discover the full story. I was unable to guess myself until the very end! 

I understand Murder In Tuscany is the beginning of a new series and I can’t wait to read more.

Murder In Tuscany is available from Amazon.
