Absolutely no secret that this is one of my all time favourite book series. I would absolutely love to see this series as a TV drama. I just love the characters that Joy Ellis has developed and having read all the books I feel like the characters have grown with me, through each book I feel like I have new friends.
This book or even the series will not disappoint any crime thriller fans. I have no problems what so ever recommending this series to anyone.
Secrets on the Fens. This book kicks off with a double murder, a young couple are found together in the woods, they way they are certainly makes you think that they are lovers. Nikki and Joseph need to find out just who they are.
When more bodies are found it becomes apparent that this is a race against time to find out who is behind this and why?
Although we are 12 books in to this series, each story and each case still feels fresh. Sometimes I find when an author is so many books in things start to get repetitive and turn a little stale. This is NOT the case with this author, I can assure you of that.
A very well written book that will keep you hooked, enough going on to keep you guessing and engaged, but not too much that you lose what is going on in the plot.
First class as always.
The only problem I have with this series is having to wait for the next instalment.
Two Girls. One Chance.
When Lizzie's car crashes with her two daughters inside, she faces a terrible choice. And when she recovers from her injuries, she has to deal with the impact of that tragedy as well as the police investigation into it.
As Lizzie and her family struggle to come to terms with the events of that night, things take an even darker turn. Just what did happen on that remote country road? Who is responsible? And can the family get through this together...Or will the truth finally tear them apart?
A stunning, deeply emotional and beautifully realised cross between SOPHIE'S CHOICE and DAUGHTER.
Review' Ambitious and articulate' - Daily Mail 'The fantastic writing kept me hooked from the very first page.'
- The Guardian
'It's a story... that carries a real twist.' - Manchester Evening News
Book Description An emotional story of one mother's impossible choice between her two daughters, with a delicious side of tension. Perfect for fans of Linda Green and Amanda Prowse.
My thoughts on this book...
What a difficult choice to make as a 'mother.
This turned out to be quite an emotional read. It is full of emotion, guilt, love, lies. A mother on her way home from a lovely holiday is run off the road in her car, by a car that seems to be coming right at them. What do you do in a situation like this. SWERE, then land in a lake. You are now faced with the prospect of you and your children drowning. It seems there is only time to save one of your daughters, but which one do you choose.
How can any mother face a situation like that. This is exactly the situation that Lizzie finds herself in. Lizzie injured and traumatised but must now face a police investigation. Do the police think she has deliberately done this, that she put her children in danger on purpose. It doesn't help when Lizzie can't seem to actually recall what happened. Slowly things happen and she gets flashes of that night. Will she be able to piece it all together, save her sanity and her family.
This will have you gripped, an enjoyable, sometimes tense and more times emotional this book will keep you awake until you finish it.
This is one of those books that you can't help yourself with the what if it was me, what would I have done.
A killer running rings around the police. A detective spiralling out of control.
DI Kate Young is on leave. She’s the force’s best detective, but her bosses know she’s under pressure, on medication and overcoming trauma. So after her bad judgement call leads to a narrowly averted public disaster, they’re sure all she needs is a rest.
But when Staffordshire Police summon her back to work on a murder case, it’s a harder, more suspicious Kate Young who returns. With a new ruthlessness, she sets about tracking down a clinical, calculating serial killer who is torturing victims and leaving clues to taunt the police. Spurred on by her reporter husband, Young begins to suspect that the murderer might be closer than she ever imagined.
As she works to uncover the truth, Young unravels a network of secrets and lies, with even those closest to her having something to hide. But with her own competence—and her grip on reality—called into question, can she unmask the killer before they strike again?
Another first class, edge of your seat, thrilling read from this very talented author. A fantastic start to a new series.

Invited back to work Kate is very unsure if she is read for this or even capable. She agrees to go back and start out with a very small team. just three of them, so Along with Kate she has DS Emma Donaldson on DS Morgan Meredith. The team are faced with a murder case. A well known businessman has been murdered and Kate is now the lead on the case.
As this book starts with you knowing something has happened to Kate, you are slowly drip fed information on what happened with her. Kate seems to grow in confidence as we go through the book and you know she is going to be a formidable character as this series grows.
A first class fast paced read that will grab you early on and keep hold of you. This author has the ability to surprise with each and every book she writes. An exceptional writer who scares me sometimes with the ideas she comes up with for a story. lol
