About this deal

Following events taking place in 'High Force', Ryan and Anna are now temporarily living in a holiday cottage within the estate grounds of Cragside, on the outskirts of the Northumberland National Park.

Am well and truly into my DCI Ryan catch up marathon now and Cragside is the 6 th outing for the team.

However, erring on the side of caution, I'm taking a quick break from her stories so that I can fully enjoy the books to come. Throughout the book when things were happening I kept trying to guess who I thought the killer was, although characters seem “honest” you just can’t always trust them.Louise is a keen philanthropist, and is pleased to have supported numerous non-profit programmes in addition to founding several of her own, including the Lindisfarne Reading Challenge and the Lindisfarne Prize for Debut Crime Fiction. It was definitely less dark than the previous installments, which I appreciated, but the mystery itself wasn't quite as intriguing.

With a gripping prologue set in the summer of 1975 the author transports us forty one years to 2016.Anna isn't jealous at all, but I don't like that this is going to probably cause loads of drama in the next book. Tai dar viena puiki istorija apie didingą Kregsaido dvarą, kuriame aptinkamas pagyvenusio vyro kūnas, o po dienos ir dar vienas - jaunos moters lavonas. They do make a good couple though as do Phillips and Mackenzie, they’ve all been through a lot in the series and it’s lovely how they all stick together and look out for each other. Royal Mail 48™ – the aim is to deliver your parcels within two working days, with a small minority within 3 working days upon handover in the United Kingdom.

The author has a way of bringing the story to life with the fantastic descriptions of the surrounding areas so that the readers can easily visualise it in their head. And this time I really was, as I noticed a certain Jen Lucas making an appearance in a rather different role to her usual blogger extraordinaire! Cragside has a bit of everything, it’s essentially a crime book but there’s also humour, a touch of romance and I would recommend having a hanky at your side as I’ll admit I did get a tad emotional.

With ongoing suspense sprinkled with humour and romance, beautiful vivid descriptions, twists and turns, various interesting revelations made during the investigation, numerous suspects, blood-curdling scenes that made me bite my knuckles, and chapters ending in cliffhangers urging me to keep on reading, together with the perfect ending, I couldn't ask for more. In my experience of several series of books I find that the author doesn't do enough to keep the sparkle alive within each book but this is definitely something that Louise has mastered. When they are invited to attend the staff summer party - a Victorian murder mystery evening - it's all a joke until the lights go out and an elderly man is found dead. Tai nekeičia mano susižavėjimo ir meilės šiai serijai, nekeičia noro perskaityti ją visą, nes suprantu, kad autorius anksčiau ar vėliau išsikvepia.
