This page is going to be filled with my monthly recommendations of books that I think might be of interest. They may be personal favourites or books from friends and colleagues. So take a look and you may find something new. This month I am reviewing Sharon Bolton’s Lacy Flint series. Blood Harvest was the first book I read of Bolton’s and it cost my a night’s sleep, I couldn’t put the bugger down. Then I started reading The Lacy Flint series I was instantly hooked. Not only does Bolton create characters you fall in love with (I have a character crush on Mark Joesbury) but she has the uncanny knack of leaving you guessing right until the end and it punches you clean in the face. This ability is the reason I love Bolton’s work, I know no matter how hard I try I will never guess the killer, something I’m usually astute at. I applaud her for that and will continue to love her work. So check her out and here’s a link to her new book. You will love her I promise.
Former detective Lacey Flint quit the force for a safer, quieter life. Or that’s what she thought. Now living alone on her houseboat, she is trying to get over the man she loves, undercover detective Mark Joesbury. But Mark is missing in action and impossible to forget. And danger won’t leave Lacey alone. When she finds a body floating in the river near her home, wrapped in burial cloths, she can’t resist asking questions. Who is this woman, and why was she hidden in the fast-flowing depths? And who has been delivering unwanted gifts to Lacey? Someone is watching Lacey Flint closely. Someone who knows exactly what makes her tick . . .
