You can't escape your darkest thoughts...

Emily Swanson came face to face with a psychopath - and survived. But the ordeal has left its scars. Determined to move on with her life, she visits a weekend retreat called Meadow Pines. With its forest setting and strict ban on technology, it’s the perfect escape.

Until one of the guests is found dead.

The evidence points to suicide. But when help fails to arrive and the guests start turning on each other, it's clear that Meadow Pines is not the safe haven it claims to be.

Miles from the nearest town and with darkness falling fast, Emily must race to uncover the horrifying truth . . . because there's a murderer at the retreat. And they’re about to kill again.

A gripping murder mystery packed with suspense. Emily Swanson is back in this electrifying, twisted-filled novel from Malcolm Richards.

Doesn’t disappoint.

I was looking forward to reading this second instalment in the Emily Swanson books & I’m so happy it didn’t disappoint as some follow up novels can.

Mind For Murder

This is the first book l have read from M J Richards, and this is the second of a series: The Emily Swanson Series.
Emily decides that she need a break, a weekend away, taking her dearest friend Jerome with her.
Without letting Jerome know what the weekend is going to be about, they travel to the wilds of the New Forest. In the depths of the forest is a retreat, no phones, no WiFi and no meat.
Who knew that you could be so isolated within the UK.
A glossary at the back, UK/US l didn’t really think was necessary? Really?
Still, I mostly enjoyed this book and will certainly look for further title by this author.

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
