Clues to You (Love in the Comptons 3) by Claire Huston



One murder mystery weekend. Two rival sleuths.

They’re looking for answers. But will they find love?

Kate Brannon is delighted to be attending her first murder mystery weekend in a movie-worthy Victorian manor house. Still getting over being dumped, cracking the case would be a welcome boost to her flagging confidence. And the prize money wouldn’t hurt either.

But Kate’s dreams of victory become a nightmare with the arrival of Max Ravenscroft. Smart, enigmatic and annoyingly handsome, Max is Kate’s sleuthing nemesis.

When she and Max are forced to work together, Kate despairs. But, as the investigation brings them closer, she finds being his partner in solving crime isn’t all bad.

With growing suspicions that the game is rigged against them, can Kate and Max beat the odds to find the killer? And, as their partnership deepens, can they find romance too?

A sweet romantic comedy with a cosy mystery at its heart. Perfect for fans of Kathryn Freeman, Laura Jane Williams and Katie Fforde.

This rivals-to-lovers romance is a standalone romcom and part of the Love in the Comptons collection.


Clues to You is a heartwarming romance with a very intriguing mystery to solve. The fact that it was a murder weekend where the suspects were all actors didn't lessen the appeal. Everyone took their roles very seriously so it felt like a real Agatha Christie-style mystery and as a result, I was hooked on that part of the story right from the start.

We also have the unlikely friendship and budding romance between Kate and Max. Kate had a lot of misconceptions about Max, who, as it turns out, is a complete sweetheart and very adorable. Their pairing up to solve the mystery was a joy to read. Their interactions were cute and sweet. Both have a keen interest in mysteries and have read extensively in the genre so it was no surprise that they were able to unravel the mystery together. They did a better job than me of following the clues. I did not see that ending coming!

I really enjoyed Max and Kate as a couple and would love it if the pair were involved in another mystery sometime soon.
