Blog Tour | Death In Dulwich #GuestPost

Today I have something a little different, a guest post from one of the characters in the book Death In Dulwich, before we get to hear from Katie here is what the book is about.

Thirty-something single mum Beth Haldane has her hands full, with a bouncy young son, haughty cat, a fringe with a mind of its own, and bills to pay. She loves her little home in plush London suburb Dulwich, but life here doesn’t come cheap.

She is thrilled to land the post of archivist at top local school Wyatt’s – though she secretly fears she’s not up to the job. But even Beth couldn’t have imagined how badly things could go, until she discovers a hideous crime and finds herself prime suspect.

Setting out to clear her name, Beth encounters a cast of characters who will follow her through the London Murder Mystery series, proving along the way that the nastiest secrets can lurk in the nicest places.

So now over to Katie who is going to tell us a little bit more about Beth…

‘I’m Katie, best friend of Beth Haldane, who’s the amateur sleuth at the heart of Death in Dulwich. I tend to pop up as Beth’s sounding board, but I’m a lot more than that.

I’m a yoga teacher and, in a place like Dulwich, where there are a lot of middle-class ladies with time on their hands, that means I’m pretty busy with classes.

One of my bugbears with Beth is that she is incapable of taking yoga seriously. She thinks of it as a little hobby to keep me busy. Admittedly, my husband, Michael, has a great job and has the lion’s share of supporting our little family– our son, Charlie, is great friends with Beth’s boy, Ben. But even though I don’t earn a fortune, I do take my yoga career very seriously. Yoga is as much about your attitude to life as anything else, something that Beth refuses to understand. Yoga helps me to be calm and supportive to Beth during her many flaps and crises, and also helps me cope when I know she is putting herself in danger.

In my view, Beth would be a lot happier and more grounded if she spent more time on yoga herself. But I can’t see that happening any time soon. She seems to be a bit too much of a magnet for mysteries at the moment.

But, as soon as the murder and mayhem dies down, I’ll be trying to make sure she concentrates more on her downward dog. You can be sure of that.’
