Really enjoyed it
Picked this book up during holiday from the villa we were renting. Really enjoyed it and now on the third sequel
Deep Fear indeedy
I thought the first book was outstanding and this may not live up to it, but it is brilliant it brings you up to date on the characters from the first book and has a scary unpredictable tale to tell. The breathtaking descriptions of the beautiful Lake District scenery has you there right from the start. I couldn’t put this book down and it had so many twists and turns I had to reread some chapters to pick the thread up. I had no clue who the killer was till near the end exceptional read.
A well written and quite satisfying police story. The Lake District setting, which was used to good effect, helped me decide to give 5*.
I do have what might seem to some a petty complaint but it rankles me. I believe authors ought to use correct grammar, except in their characters’ speech which can reflect how people talk in every day life. Rachel Lynch is a very good writer but several times she used ‘stood’ and ‘sat’ when it should have been ‘standing’ and ‘sitting’. We would never say ‘I was swam in the sea’ or ‘he was ran down the road’.
Rant over! Still worthy of 5*!
