176 posts | 160 read | 4 reading | 65 to read
The second gripping novel in the #1 internationally bestselling Thursday Murder Club series, the first of which Kate Atkinson called "A little beacon of pleasure in the midst of the gloom. . . SUCH FUN!" Elizabeth, Joyce, Ron and Ibrahimthe Thursday Murder Clubare still riding high off their recent real-life murder case and are looking forward to a bit of peace and quiet at Coopers Chase, their posh retirement village. But they are out of luck. An unexpected visitoran old pal of Elizabeths (or perhaps more than just a pal?)arrives, desperate for her help. He has been accused of stealing diamonds worth millions from the wrong men and hes seriously on the lam. Then, as night follows day, the first body is found. But not the last. Elizabeth, Joyce, Ron and Ibrahim are up against a ruthless murderer who wouldnt bat an eyelid at knocking off four septuagenarians. Can our four friends catch the killer before the killer catches them? And if they find the diamonds, too? Well, wouldnt that be a bonus? You should never put anything beyond the Thursday Murder Club. Richard Osman is back with everyones favorite mystery-solving quartet, and the second installment of The Thursday Murder Club series is just as clever and warm as the firstan unputdownable, laugh-out-loud pleasure of a read.

The second book is EVEN BETTER! The characters, humour, dialogues, interesting mystery and compelling plot - a great read! 👍

Being reunited with the four loveable characters felt cosy and familiar, like slipping on a favourite item of clothing. Just as in the first book, this was full of dry humour, with sharp and witty insights. Funny without ever being ‘try hard‘.

This was a lot more action packed than the first, and quite busy at times. Still hugely enjoyable and looking forward to reading the third.

I read this with my book club, I loved the first book and this second one didn‘t disappoint. It‘s a fun and entertaining mystery written with a sense of humour. The characters are great, Joyce being my favourite. Looking forward the third instalment in due course.

I really loved this book. It was better than the first one as I knew the characters. Now onto to the third book

A physical book for a change. It was a Christmas present in 2021.

My local reading group have decided to read it. We decided to read something a little more light hearted after reading Wilding by Isabella Tree. We‘d already read the first book which we all enjoyed so hopefully this one will be just as fun!

Every bit as entertaining and charming as the first book, and it was so nice to spend time with Elizabeth, Joyce, Ron and Ibrahim again (not to mention the great cast of supporting characters) Elizabeth‘s ex-husband, and fellow MI5 spy has stolen diamonds worth millions from an international arms dealer, and he wants her help. Distracted by her current husband‘s increasing dementia, Elizabeth is not at the top of her game; her friends step up.

What a great sequel! I am almost tempted to say that I liked this one even better than the first one; which is saying a lot since I loved that one! It was fun to continue to see the characters grow and uncover another mystery.

Super light comedy and a nice easy read, I got through this book on a long haul flight which was made much more pleasant by the investigating octogenarians! I enjoyed this even more than the first in the series and am looking forward to reading the third.

Okay onto the second of this series and am kind of hooked. An old colleague/husband of Elizabeth is in hiding in the neighbourhood from the London underworld accused of stealing 20M pounds in diamonds. Murder and chaos results and the team of septuagenarian and octogenarian nursing home residents undertake to investigate the resultant murders. Light, cliched but overall a lot of fun

Cold brew🧋keto cupcakes🧁and a nice morning catching up with my latest comfort-read of octogenarian crime solvers! I hope very much to be as much of a battle axe as Elizabeth someday.

Has anyone else seen a movie with a bunch of aging superhero‘s set in a nursing home? I cannot remember the name, but it has similar vibes to TMC. I wonder if osman watched it while writing?

A lovely holiday read. Another murder mystery to be solved by the four elderly friends from Cooper‘s Chase retirement village. Everyone - police, spies, criminals - has a human side and friendship wins the day.

I just couldn't stop listening to this (which is good for my husband because I did more #chores than normally, so I had an “excuse“). So yeah, I just love these characters. I ended up preordering the next one (again, thanks, @ChrissyReadIt) and will only have to wait for a little over a month, so... perfect timing!

The usual humours mixed with multiple murders & a clever plot made me love this one even more than the first book!
It did get a little slow at times, but the witty banters & friendship between the members (of Thursday Murder Club) from the retirement village made me giggles out loud & reminded me not to underestimate your elderly! I want to join their community & be as sassy as Elizabeth & Joyce when I grow old! 😆

This was delightful. Not sure why I waited so long to read it after loving the first book in the series, but I read it today and highly recommend it. I will definitely read the next one when it comes out! The writing style just really makes me chuckle, as you can see in his author blurb. 😋

Kempii I seem to be one of the few readers who didn‘t like Thursday Night Murder Club (I found it boring), but am wondering enough about what I missed in this author‘s writing to give him another try. 8mo
LiteraryinLawrence @Kempii I mean, the second one is totally in the same style as the first. I think you should trust your gut! But of course if you want to give it a shot, I‘m sure the library could oblige. 😋 8mo

If you liked the first book, you might like the second even more! It‘s clever, charming, funny, and poignant.
The mystery has multiple murders and stolen diamonds, but the great characters are what really shine. I especially love Elizabeth and Joyce! 🎧

When a man from Elizabeth‘s past shows up the group finds themselves with a new mystery to solve.
Picking up this book was like reuniting with old friends. I love the Thursday Murder Club with all of their quirks. I agree that this book was even better than the first. I cannot thank @AmyG enough for kindly sending this book my way. Cannot wait for the next installment!

This one was even better than the first in the series. I keeping trying to decide which of the main characters is my favorite. I think probably Elizabeth because she‘s just so clever, but Joyce is fun. I especially like that the book features some journal entries from Joyce that bring in new layers of the story with a lot of humor. Ibrahim, Ron, and Bogdan are also great. I‘m ready to read more of their adventures.

This was my #BookSpin for July

The intrepid members of the Thursday Murder Club are at it once again! An ex-husband from Elizabeth‘s secret past suddenly resurfaces & inserts himself into her life. Murder & mayhem soon follow. A malicious mugging of one of their own, stolen diamonds, organized crime, & spies add to this ingenious, at times humorous, novel. #ThursdayMurderClubMystery
