Where to start with this effort.
Hugely disappointed having thoroughly enjoyed the previous offerings.
Couldn’t keep up with this disjointed plot, or to be honest lack of one.
Far too much going back in time, to ramble on about characters who had absolutely no connection with the present crimes in this story.
I was totally confused and uninterested by the time it eventually arrived at the point of revealing whodunnit.
I honestly couldn’t wait for it to end.
Very poorly written I’m afraid and I expected far better from this author
Won’t be buying the next one.
Another good read
I am enjoying this series and look forward to the next book.
The writing style is good and easy to read.
The Lake District setting is again put to effective use featuring in a few important parts of the story.
The private life of the main character, Kelly, adds to the enjoyment of the book for me. How her situation is evolving is a link to the previous books and I do want to know what happens next.
There are enough suspects in this story for you to wonder up to the final pages whether what you finally think has happened is the answer. Will there be a final twist, or not?
