    1. The Riviera Express is the name of both a train, and a local newspaper, in the seaside town of Temple Regis. It is 1958 and Miss Judy Dimont is a reporter; working for the less than sympathetic editor, Rudyard Rhys. Miss Dimont has a huge number of calls to pay every day – including the local Court and meeting any important visitors to the town. Along with the newspaper photographer, Terry Eagleton, she is duly in place to meet the train, on the day the novel starts, as a famous actor is due t [...]


    2. I received a copy of this book from Harper Collins in exchange for an honest review.Nothing that exciting ever happens in Temple Regis so when a film star is found dead on a train and then a local man found dead at the bottom of a cliff, local reporter Miss Judy Dimont feels like something is up. What follows is a comedic investigation involving some starlets more interested in crying for the cameras, a bumbling policeman and a missing briefcase.This story took me a while to really get into it, [...]


    3. The Riviera Express by T.P. Fielden is the first in a series of Riviera Murder Mysteries, featuring Miss Judy Dimont.Described by some reviewers as a “cosy” mystery novel, this has much more to offer than some books in this sub-genre. It is true that this murder mystery does not contain the blood and violence of many grittier novels, hence the “cosy” label, but “The Riviera Express” is full of intrigue.When the train, known as the Riviera Express, arrives in Temple Regis, a beautiful [...]


    4. Every now and then, I’m sure most of us do, I need a change of pace with my reading and select one of my “holiday” reads. Nearing the end of a very intensive online six week writing course, I spotted the very colourful cover of Murder on the Riviera Express and decided this would do nicely to start winding down. Gerald Hennessey, silver screen idol is found dead on the 4.30 from Paddington no less and Miss Dimont, Temple Regis’s very competent lead reporter, investigates. This is a delig [...]


    5. I struggled to stay focused on this book. I'm not sure what it is about the writer's style but I found it a bit disjointed. The change of perspective between some of the characters made it a little hard to track in the first part of the book - it felt like i either didn't spend enough time with any particular character to really get to know them or maybe they were just too similar in to tone to really make it easy to discriminate between them. I kept finding myself having to re-read sections in [...]


    6. 'Welcome to Temple Regis, Devon.Where Miss Judy Dimont reports on church fetes, council arguments and murder in….The Riviera Express.’The Riviera Express is the first in a new series set in Devon, featuring Miss Judy Dimont, a welcome new addition to the world of sleuthing. Published on 23rd February 2017 by HQ Stories, an imprint of Harper Collins, I would recommend this book for all fans of Murder She Wrote or Agatha Christie’s Miss Marple…Please read on for my full thoughts…The Rivi [...]


    7. I would like to thank Netgalley and Harlequin UK for an advance copy of The Riviera Express, a cosy mystery set in 1958 Devon.Miss Dimont, former something in the war, is now chief reporter at The Riviera Express in Temple Regis, Devon. Her life is a whirl of local reporting - court, council, shows and clubs - unless a celebrity comes to the picturesque seaside resort when she and Terry the photographer have a well honed routine for finessing an interview at the railway station. They are, theref [...]


    8. Thank you to NetGalley and the publishers for an advance copy of the ebook.I thoroughly enjoyed this tale set in the late 50's.Normally I am not keen on pastiche but this was so well done that I have no hesitation in advising others to buy.It promises well for the rest of the series- I look forward to reading more about the mysterious Miss Dim.The plot is well paced and I did not guess the murderer until quite late on.The characterisation is good with many memorable characters one hopes to meet [...]


    9. February. Cold. Wet. Grey. I huddle beneath a blanket in an armchair by the fire as day slips murkily into night, but the book in my lap has transported me to glorious, dazzling summer. Turquoise sea and white sand, a fresh salty breeze on the promenade, the timeless rippling cries of seagulls riding the thermals above the bay. My book is The Riviera Express, and the town it has so joyously transported me to is Temple Regis. It might as well be a real place, so vividly has T. P. Fielden painted [...]


    10. This was such a nice, gentle read. There is nothing I like more than a spot of cosy crime and 'The Riviera Express' fitted that bill. Set in 1950's this is perfect for lazy Sunday afternoons or sunny days in the garden. Settle down with a cup (or glass) of your favourite something and enjoy a trip to Temple Regis, Devon. Meet Judy Dimont. Apple eating, spectacle wearing, scooter riding, inquisitive reporter for The Riviera Express. This amateur sleuth knows that something isn't quite right with [...]


    11. I received a free E-Arc from Netgalley.The Riviera Express is, quite simply, a very good read. The author does have a particular writing style which initially threw me and I worried that the novel would be a hard read, however, after only a few pages, I was used to the writing style, and while many might not appreciate the 'wordiness' the author choices to use, I found it fit very well with the novel.The characters are nuanced and a little stereotypical, but then, that really is the point. It is [...]


    12. This felt very disjointed and, as a detective mystery, ultimately unsatisfying. Information was used in the reveal at the end which hadn't been introduced during the narrative. This meant that the reader did not have a fair chance of working out 'whodunnit'. Some of the descriptive writing, especially about the town and its seaside location, was well done, but many of the characters seemed thinly drawn. At times the plot went off at random and unnecessary tangents. One example was the AGM of the [...]


    13. Judy Dimont, Miss Dim to her colleagues, works as a journalist on the Riviera Express in Temple Regis in Devon.The subject of a story she was due to cover sits dead in a Pullman carriage. Before the day is out Judy and Terry, the paper’s photographer, will come across another untimely death and something about it all rings false.This is a tale of obfuscation (whatever that means). Apart from Miss Dimont, we have half stories being told by suspects to the police Inspector, to Terry and to Miss [...]


    14. cannot decide if i really like this book or just think it was 'okay'.i bought it initially due to reading a lot of mystery/detective/thrillers from 1930s through to the 1960s and liking the time period used for the story, and also due to the retro-styling of the cover and advertising of the book.i found it very easy to read, descriptions of the 1950's seaside town and its inhabitants very well donee descriptions of 1950's britain where the war was still a clear memory for everyone over 18 (or so [...]


    15. an example of cozy crime and at times quite entertaining, however, the writing is a bit uneven, I think the author is still finding their style - repeated references to the protagonists background without then giving the reader any specifics starts to grate a bit and keeps the protagonist at arm's length from the reader; the solution to the case while plausible still feels a bit hasty and unfair on the reader as it suddenly appears on teh final few pages, so it's a maybe from me for getting the [...]


    16. Very good match between the story, and the writing style (la plume). The pace, the themes, and the dialogues are convincingly from the 50s. Sometimes may feel slow for people living in the 15 seconds "change rythm" of the modern media. It is more like being at a placid lake than at the exciting sea, but rather well done. And one could imagine easily the gorgeous costumes and scenery should this book turn into a show.


    17. The heroine of this story certainly has potential but I just didn’t enjoy reading this book. I found the author’s style of writing made it quite difficult to follow the story, it felt disjointed and I found myself rereading sections. At times I felt the author was just trying too hard to be ‘clever’ and just forgot to tell the story.I found after a few chapters I was already getting bored and even though I tried to stay with the story in the end I just gave up.


    18. Looking forward to the next Miss Dimont title. I think it's nice to have a character with a past that can be explored, if that's what the author wants. I enjoyed the story, the characters and the sense of place.


    19. A cosy mystery set in the late 1950s on the English Riviera in the fictional seaside town of Temple Regis. The main character of Miss Judy Dimont is introduced and there are hints of further back story (to be expanded in later books?) to her character and the work she did during the war.The plot moves along slowly but is tied together quite well in the end. The whole book evokes a bucolic image of seaside life in a bygone era.


    20. A little too cosy and twee for my liking. The humour was excellent and I found myself laughing in places but struggled with it other-wise.


    21. undemanding nostalgic detective story - the kind of holiday read that has long been popular. Writing style a little uneven, but no worse than Dame Agatha


    22. Picked this up while on vacation at the English Riviera. While I enjoyed the setting, the plot and characters weren't for me.




    23. I received a copy of this from the publishers. I found this, and the sequel Resort To Murder, such enjoyable, easy reads. They transport you back in time to the 1950s, in a quiet coastal seaside town, where crime rarely happens. Judy Dimmont is a reporter on the local newspaper, who gets involved in solving not one, but two murders that happen simultaneously in this small community. There is nothing scary or particularly exciting about this novel, but it goes at a gentle pace; giving you a calmi [...]


    24. I loved this book!The characters feel real and are well described.T P Fielding must be a fan of my all time favourite author Agatha Christie, as film star Gerald Hennessey is murdered on the train from Paddington to Devon. Plus the title is reminiscent of her book Murder on the Orient Express.The story bowls along at a brisk pace with a satisfactory ending.Not sure if the author has written more as I haven't come across him/her previously, but will endeavour to find out.A light, fun read and ver [...]


    25. ****Copy from in return for an honest review****This is a fun detective romp set in a seaside town in the 1950s. Judy Dimont is a reporter on the local paper, the Riviera Express, and when a film heartthrob is found dead on the train to the town (also the Riviera Express) on the same day an unpopular local is found dead at the bottom of the cliffs, she can't help but feel that there is some connection. The police think differently though, and soon Miss Dimont is investigating herself at the sam [...]
