MY REVIEW

A good suspenseful book which kept me in my toes for most parts.

A vicious attack on a woman in her own home in a sleepy village shocked everyone. The cops had a tough time to find leads as there were no clues. Until a second attack created a wave of fear.

My first book by author Lynda Renham, I was pulled in by the anger in the attack – 20 blows with the hammer on the head and the woman lived to forget the event. With different POVs and time jumps, I was soon able to piece the story.

One subplot was easy to guess, and I was nearly surely who the perp was. The clues could be read between the lines. I liked how the book still perked up my interest to read it at go. It was a whodunit in its core, and laid a melee of suspects in its path.

A few niggles. The book was too long and slow. Needed more adrenaline. Kate, one of the lead cops, didn’t endear herself to me. She blamed the wrong person for her insecurities. In a murder investigation, she needed to pull up her socks instead of negating all suspects just because they lived in the same village.

The rest of the book was fine, and I liked how it all came together in the end. A fun afternoon read.

MY RATING

Rating: 4 out of 5.

BOOK BLURB

Life in the village of Stonesend is pretty uneventful, that is until Detective Tom Miller is transferred there following a personal tragedy. He is not greeted well by local police officer Beth Harper, who feels he is not up to the job. The day of his arrival, Kate Marshall, a teacher at the local school, is beaten in her own home and left for dead. The villagers are left in a state of shock. Was it a random attack or something more personal?
