Bailedbailed

What did I miss? It has been a long time since I bailed from a novel. A handsome hero with slabs of muscle despite the fact he admits he drink a bottle of red a night and has not exercised in months (that diet does not have the same effect for me), a demure intelligent but beautiful specialist who cannot help falling for him despite the fact he treats her terribly. A mystery and a location which did not grip and I lost the will to continue.

sprainedbrain I love this review🤣 1d
LeahBergen Ditto that diet‘s effect on me! 😂 1d

#TheBoneGarden #KateEllis

A skeleton of a corpse who has been buried alive is discovered at an excavation of the gardens of Earlsacre Hall. Det Sgt Wesley Peterson is busy trying to solve a murder of a man stabbed to death in a caravan park. Are these murders related? Solicitor Brian Willerby may have the answer. Kate Ellis brings us a mystery that seems to imitate the past. Read this to find out what it is about Earlsacre that leads to murder.

Andrew65 Think I liked this one and the series more than some others. A very typical English feel to this murder mystery series. Most US Crime is much faster paced and often more gritty. Obviously some exceptions to this on both sides of the pond. (edited) 1mo
EadieB @Andrew65 The only complaint I have about her writing is that her writing does not flow well for me. 1mo
Andrew65 @EadieB It might be about her use of English, because i‘ve not noticed this. 1mo
EadieB @Andrew65 Yes, her language is a bit stilted. 1mo

It‘s that time again. Time for the next Group Read on Librarything of book 5 in the Wesley Peterson Series - we are aiming to read the whole series (currently 23 books). This is the schedule for the Group Read. If you are Interested in joining in let me know below - they are great fun and I definitely recommend the series. A mixture of archaeology and a Modern Murder, and a back story from history.

A few twists and turns along the way in this fourth book in the Dalziel and Pascoe Series. This was different to the others as for much of the book Dalziel was on his own, and on holiday, whilst Pascoe was on his honeymoon. This book allowed us to find out a lot more about Dalziel and what made him tick. Very good on this point, a very interesting murder mystery, although must admit missing Pascoe until he turned up in the last couple of chapters.

DS Peterson, amateur archaeologist, is intrigued that a Viking corpse may be buried at a farm site. He has an urgent crime to solve, the disappearance of a Danish tourist. Gerry Heffernan believes the Dane‘s disappearance is linked to brutal robberies. I loved the tie in of the historical Viking story with the present. Murderer was a surprise with lots of suspects. Looking forward to the next book. Recommended.

After a full day at a crime novel festival, what do you do? You go home and have to start reading crime, because that‘s the way you were built! ❤️🤷🏼‍♀️😂
