I have just rediscovered my love for reading, cardmaking is my main hobby, I am curious and love the odd glass of merlot with friends
Tragic story sensitively written
Di Marnie Rome, she is independent, strong and thinks on her feet.
I cannot say I enjoyed but for me the scene when Marnie ends up underground with Clancy and is joined by Terry and Esther and she has to work out a way of getting them all out, especially as the situation is volatile
If time had permitted definitely yes
I am looking forward to the next book
Spend my time cycling, reading, listening to audiobooks and music, baking and running about after 3 grown up kids, cats and chickens.
This started off brilliantly. The plot developed quickly and there's some good character development. It lost momentum for me about half way through when everything seemed to stall. I very nearly gave up but eventually got to the end.
Not bad/not good.
Average police procedural with private life of main character a running theme in first two books. These seems to be the case with a lot of these police/suspense books now. I think it's because unless there was a back story or continuing second storyline running over years, the stories themselves are not strong enough to make you buy the next in the series.
Main character seems bland and boring. Nothing about her makes you like or loathe her. Just dull. Quite like her wingman, but even he is a bunch of stereotypes moulded together.
Not sure I'll bother with no3 unless really hard up for choice.
Love the characters of DI Rome and Noah, but this story is very slow and depressing from the off, didn't feel the outcome was a surprise
This is truly an appalling book. The plot is shockingly bad, the writing self-indulgently awful and the narration just hideous.
No twist and the ending was very "what? That's it??".
Just felt bitty and couldn't really connect with any of the characters as they were so one dimensional. Too many other bits going on and found it a bit pointless in places.
