Mehso-so

The Locked Room was the 14th installment in this series but it was the first for me. I was not a huge fan and in seeing the other reviews, clearly in the minority.

It was just an ok read for me. It takes place at the start of the pandemic and I felt like Covid overshadowed the mystery plot(s).

Thank you to William Morrow and NetGalley for an advance eKindle addition in exchange for an honest review.

I wasn‘t ready for a book written during and incorporating the pandemic, but it was so good! My main thought running in the background the entire time, was, please don‘t let any of them die (find out for yourself). Suicide, kidnapping, lockdown, family, ghosts, obsession, and more. Next book, please! And hurry! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Another brilliant story in the series. As much as the mystery was interesting, I must admit I was most invested in Cathbad, he's my favourite character in this. This deals heavily with Covid and the effects it had on people which was so relatable. The plot was interesting and threw up a twist or two along the way. But oh that ending. I need more now. Another great read. 4* book 1 read for #JubilantJuly

I love all the Ruth Galloway mysteries, but this is among the very best. An intriguing mystery set during the early days of the pandemic, it brings back all those conflicted emotions. I love these characters, and there‘s an intriguing cliffhanger, too.

Starting this today and it's signed by the author. One of my favourite series and authors. Plus based around where I live which is so cool.

Finally got this book! Going to enjoy it with this “OTAN - NATO beer (otan means take in Finnish or in this case grab (a beer), since we are now on the highway to NATO. Been a weird week. Got some great news, but the got absolutely horrible news from two friends, and it‘s hard to digest these news. Hope you‘re enjoying Saturday!

Read this to review for a journal…. So I‘ll not say anything review-worthy but just comment that it was really strange personally to read a book set during the beginning of the Covid while actively having Covid for the first time, 2 years into the pandemic.

This is my favorite mystery series, so much that I get a copy from the UK so I don‘t have to wait for the U.S. publication. This one covers the early part of the COVID-19 pandemic, and it was interesting to see how Ruth, Nelson, and all dealt with it. The police trying to solve a case during the lockdown was really interesting. As always, catching up with the longterm characters was my favorite part.

The latest book of the Dr Ruth Galloway series, this is set at the beginning of lockdown in 2020. I enjoy this series, love to find what is happening with Ruth and Nelson too.

Despite the anxiety that began to course through my veins due to reliving the beginning of the pandemic all over again, this was another great entry to the Ruth Galloway novels. I really did start feeling panicky like when it began and that just testifies to the strength of Elly Griffith‘s world-building capabilities. I was very happy to be back with Ruth. I Always love it when Cathbad has a bigger role. I can‘t wait to see what happens next.

Not my favourite as I don‘t really like reading about things set during the COVID pandemic. Still looking forward to the next one and to see where Ruth and Nelson find themselves!

TheSpineView I love this series! 💚📚 5mo
Kayla.Adriena I agree we just lived it and are still living it why do we need books about it already 🤔. Gorgeous cover though 5mo
Ms.Story @TheSpineView me too! I always look forward to the next book. It‘s like visiting an old friend! 5mo
