Reviewing books had never been my forte, so this will only be a short review. I love to read and it’s the one thing I miss since becoming a published writer. I have such tight deadlines now that it leaves me very little time to read like I used to do every single day of the week.
However this month I had to find the time to read a book for this blog and I’m so glad that I did.
I chose to read Shallow Waters by Rebecca Bradley
It is a crime book of the highest degree and I would compare it along the lines of some of my favourite crime writers who have been writing for years.
The story follows DI Hannah Robbins and her team in the Nottingham City division Major Crimes Unit, I was drawn into the story from page one and it just kept pulling me in. It is very well written, the story flows seamlessly and it was very, very believable.
This is the blurb from Amazon: When the naked, battered body of an unidentified teenager is found dumped in an alleyway, post-mortem finds evidence of a harrowing series of events.
Another teenage death with the same MO pushes DI Hannah Robbins and her team in the Nottingham City division Major Crimes Unit, to their limits, and across county borders. In a race against the clock, they attempt to unpick a thick web of lies and deceit to uncover the truth behind the deaths.
But it doesn’t stop there.
When catching a killer isn’t enough, just how far are the team willing to push themselves to save the next girl?
It was hard hitting, page turning, thought provoking and heartbreaking. A fantastic read.
Next month is the turn of the very lovely Helen Rolfe who will be reviewing The Miniaturist by Jessie Barton.
