Book Description:

Out of a big old building on the south coast of Kent, David Booker runs a book-themed coffee shop and Jo Cash operates a private investigation business. They live there, too. But not like that.

Jo needs help with tracing a mystery client’s living relatives. David needs help with his staffing problems. Can they both get what they are looking for?

Sometimes two heads are better than one. Sometimes a poor hand is better than none. But not always…

Author Bio:

Oliver Tidy was born and bred on Romney Marsh, Kent. After a fairly aimless foray into adulthood and a number of unfulfilling jobs he went back to education and qualified as a primary school teacher.

A few years of having the life sucked out of him in the classroom encouraged Oliver abroad to teach English as a foreign language. The lifestyle provided him the time and opportunity to try his hand at writing.

Oliver’s success as a self-published author has led to his Booker & Cash series of books, which are set mainly on Romney Marsh, being signed by Bloodhound Books. 

Oliver is now back living on Romney Marsh and writing full time. 


My Review 

Poor hands is the second book that I have read by tbis author.   I have been impressed with his style of writing which flows well and is easy to follow.

The premise of the book was wonderful even if this type has been done before.  However the author puts some twists in that make it a very good read.

I really like Jo.  Very strong  and capable while Booker always seemsmto me the odd man out.  He doesn’t seem to have the same drive that Jo does and he drives me a bit nuts.  That’s what makes the team up well.   

I am anticipating what comes next in the Booker and Cash series.
