This book reminds me of Clue (that old murder mystery board game). I like that.
The 7 ½ Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle
Fiction, Mystery, Suspense, Time Loop
Aiden Bishop knows the rules. Evelyn Hardcastle will die every day until he can identify her killer and break the cycle. But every time the day begins again, Aiden wakes up in the body of a different guest at Blackheath Manor. And some of his hosts are more helpful than others. With a locked-room mystery that Agatha Christie would envy, Stuart Turton unfurls a breakneck novel of intrigue and suspense.

I admit I was somewhat confused the entire novel, but that confusion never prevented my enjoyment. I wasn’t trying too hard to piece together what was happening, I relaxed and allow the plot to reveal itself.
Audiobook was the correct format for this one: it was easy to listen to the story move along while doing chores.
Wish we saw a bit more Evelyn, since she’s in the title. It misled me a little at first. Aidan Bishop & Anna were much more active/present in the plot, much more intriguing. I really liked how different hosts influenced Aidan’s personality.
Lots of questions about the plague doctors and this time loop system, but they’re good ones to wonder & daydream about. The story would have been too long, if we got into those details. It already concludes a great mystery in a satisfying way.
