    • There s a half decent book struggling to get out of this but it s so riddled with faults, of so many different varieties, and with a story that is just entirely implausible.It s so very bad that you feel sort of obliged to say something positive about it Well, it has a clear beginning, middle and end, and is written in a prose style that is grammatically correct, syntactically reasonable and is easily readable without being over simplified And don t take those comments as facetious, because th T [...]


    • No wonder this book was a 1 Best Seller on Brilliant stuff I have been talking about the brilliant writers that are coming out of the UK this year What is even exciting is the writers that are coming out of the North East of England this year Local writers I am so darn proud to see the level of talent from my part of the country Holy Island is an actual place, also known as Lindisfarne, that sits of the coast of beautiful Northumberland in the North East of England It s an isl No wonder this boo [...]

    • This book tries to be both a murder Mystery novel and a Mills and Boon bodice ripper and sadly it falls between the two stools The characters are well used stereotypes To find The Holy Island that I know and love peopled only by beautiful people came as a surprise to me I thought i d stumbled into Brookside takes a holiday The author tried to write a story using proper police procedures and this causes some problems as it vastly increases the number of characters.This can make things confusi Thi [...]


    • I ve been eager to read this series for a long time Eventually, I ve made a start with the first encounter with DCI Ryan Holy Island.This is a classicly written piece of crime fiction mystery Set in Northumberland, the setting itself gives a perfect backdrop to a fantastic story The author creates a great atmosphere which drew me in The book grabbed me from the beginning and had me hooked all the way through Holy Island manages to keep a nice balance between gruesome and cosy crime It s I ve bee [...]


    • I very rarely give one star reviews as I try to see the positive in the books I read but really A 70 s era sexist main character, so many unrealistic events, geographical inaccuracies, other general inaccuracies, female characters that came from central casting, character stereotypes troubled back stories etc , REALLY BAD ROMANTIC SCENES actually laughed out loud I realise that being a first novel hopefully in future there will be some improvement in some of the above areas I think the I very ra [...]
