Description

Built against a craggy hillside, the aptly named, majestic Cragside residence is famous for being the first house in the world to have been lit by hydroelectricity, back in the 1800s, using water from the lakes on the estate.

The author has dispensed with the slightly silly cult type themes of the early books and has gone in a good direction with a solid who done it. Optional extra – have your items hand wrapped in brown paper packaging tied up with string and with their very own North East tourist tip. I had no idea what I was letting myself in for, but I was in capable hands with LJ Ross and she more than did me proud. Whether it’s about a murder or two or a serial killer it’s always such a thrill to read it and be shocked when you find out who the killer is.Needless to say, 'Cragside' is another fantastic addition to the series, I really enjoyed it and I highly recommend it. Whilst attending a Victorian Murder Mystery event up at the main house the body of one of the staff is found after what initially appears to have been a tragic accident. The intrigue and suspense intensifies when a second body is discovered and with several potential suspects and not much to go on, the team have their work cut out. He deserves a bit of a break here as he has been through some tough times recently and now has his wedding to Anna to look forward to. Following the burning down of Anna's house, Ryan and Anna are staying on one of the cottages on the Cragside estate until they sort out where they are going to live.

I absolutely loved the set up here, it was an opportunity for the author to explore the continuing relationships between the friends and colleagues but also involving them in this new investigation. She studied undergraduate and postgraduate Law at King’s College, University of London and then abroad in Paris and Florence. 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. Even a newish member to the team, really fits in well with lots of potential for development and back story.Yes I am a little late to the party and wish that I would of had chance to read it sooner because it is that good! Winners details will be collected for the sole purpose of sending the prize, and will not be retained by Jen Med’s Book Reviews or shared with any third parties. When another body is found, things escalate quickly and it’s clear that there is something sinister happening at Cragside. It was definitely less dark than the previous installments, which I appreciated, but the mystery itself wasn't quite as intriguing. At times it felt rather like an Agatha Christie novel with a murder taking place when the lights went off and a murder takes place and we then meet a cast of potential suspects for Ryan and his team to investigate!

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. The whole murder case felt very much like your typical ‘who dunnit’ and of course as always I didn’t get it right to who it could be. I will be honest i was so worried this book would not meet up to the standard of her previous books because 5 was just incredible however, few chapters in i knew I was in for another gripping story line. There aren't any intimate details given, but I'm the kind of reader that really just wants present to focus on the present. In Cragside we get to find out a bit more about Lowerson and Yates as well and I’m really looking forward to seeing more from them in the future.Viską būčiau pateisinusi, jei autorė būtų labiau atskleidusi detektyvų išgyvenimus po penktos dalies, arba labiau išvysčiusi naujų veikėjų užuomazgas ir portretus (nujaučiu, kad tai bus kitose dalyse), tačiau to šioje knygoje irgi ne itin daug radau.
