Thought-Provoking, Thrilling Read!
Never a dull moment – what a stunning read! I’ve already downloaded the first two in series to catch up with.
Called out in the middle of the night, DS Jenna Morgan finds herself attending a house fire so large and intensive that there is no way to know if the residents were at home or not. When bodies are discovered in the ruins, the count doesn’t add up to all members of the Lawrence family who lived there; so who is unaccounted for and where are they?
This is an exciting and fast moving story, beautifully crafted, carefully plotted and absolutely packed with action from beginning to end. Personal details are included but nothing takes away from the crime story. There is such a lot happening! As a conscientious officer, Jenna is kept busy as other things need dealt with in her working life, but she never loses sight of the bigger picture. The characters are true to life, the story flows really well and kept me glued all the way through. Thought-provoking and thrilling with a good slice of humour, it adds up to an absolutely superb read. Definitely an author to add to your ‘must not miss’ read, and I’m delighted to give this all five sparkling stars!
My thanks to the publisher for my copy via NetGalley and to Rachel’s Random Resources for my spot on this tour; this is – as always – my honest, original and unbiased review.
