DI Mooney investigates the murder of a festival queen in the first of a two-part case, beginning this week in Death in Paradise

The murder of a festival queen causes ripples in Florence’s personal life in this week's Death in Paradise 

‘I think we can all agree this wasn’t a bizarre bread robbery that went wrong,’ muses Jack (Ardal O'Hanlon), as the team investigates another strange murder in a special two-part episode.

The victim was festival queen Tiana, beloved by everyone on the island and killed while out in a boat alone.

The awkward twist is that Tiana’s boyfriend is the best friend of Florence’s (Josephine Jobert) fiancé Patrice (Leemore Marrett Jr).

And Patrice is not impressed when she starts digging for info…

Meanwhile, Florence ruins Jack with tequila and JP scolds Ruby when she admits she has a crush on a murder suspect…
