Summary

The Wicked Witch of Whitby vs. the Bride of Frankenstein.

Meet the good, the bad and the bitten... Something is biting people on the streets of Whitby. In an ordinary town, this would be worrying. Here, it's disastrous, and only Brenda has guessed why.

She's also trying to prepare for a packed festive break at her B&B, but her best friend Effie is in distracted mood: she hasn't been the same since her suave gentleman friend Alucard reappeared.

Meanwhile, Penny has joined a book group in the new mystery bookstore, the Spooky Finger. As she is drawn into the strange and fantastic works of Edwardian lady novelist Beatrice Mapp, she makes some surprising discoveries. Discoveries that will soon impact upon the lives of all the ladies of Whitby.

When unexpected help from the shadows of the past arrives to illuminate the dangers awaiting them all, Brenda realises that unless she can find a way to save Effie, the consequences may be eternal.

A voyage through genres and beyond.

Love this whole series, the wit and the sly mangling of tropes, the soap operatic rows and bubbling, bungling passions. And behind the curtain a well read intelligence bright eyed, like a mad scientist pulling threads out of so many genres it makes your head spin. Bravo.

Simply wonderful, duckie

The further incredible adventures of Whitby’s favourite two guardians - Brenda and Effie. Monster adventures with a touch of proper northern humour and plenty of time for a fish supper.

These stories have got me through these lockdowns and kept me thoroughly entertained!!

Jumps around but these are Beloved characters

I’ve been a big Brenda & Effie fan for the last year but this has been my least favourite. It jumps around a bit & every time i sat down to it I had to go back a bit to get my bearings. Also there are a few “mistakes” i.e bits where the narrator mis-reads & then corrects. It wasn’t as totally distracting as the plot.
That said, I love Joanna Tope’s reading - she does bring these beloved characters “alive” 😉

Great story but jumps about a bit

The story is quite convoluted and jumps about a bit, also for me e accents were not treat, i think Joanna Tope does a great job, but the choice of voices were grating a bit... But thats just my opinion, it shouldn't stop you listening.
