Readers’ reviews

… about the Sussex Crime Mystery series

‘…there are plenty of twists and turns before the story is resolved…I was delighted with the author’s period detail: she captures the highs and lows of that era with a deft touch.’

‘I was pulled into this story from the very first page by the author’s easy-to-read and entertaining writing style. Janie is a well-drawn character who becomes a sleuth after her friend Zara disappears following a traumatic event. I was intrigued to find out what had happened to Zara and the story unfolded at a great pace which kept me turning the pages. Everything is set up for the next in the series which I look forward to reading. A great book!’

‘This is an excellent novel from an author I will be watching out for. The writing is good; it flows well and creates scenes and characters that are eminently believable and engaging.’

‘What I particularly liked about the book is that, although there is death and darkness, the seedier side of human life is not allowed to overwhelm the story which maintains a pretty easy style throughout, with plenty of kindness and humour.’

‘This was a great find. A librarian turns to sleuthing in 1960’s England looking for her missing friend. Janie Juke, an Agatha Christie enthusiast, is a very likeable protagonist. I really enjoyed the relationship she has with her blind ex-policeman father, as well as with her husband, Greg. A real page-turner. I’ve already bought the next book in the series and looking forward to being able to start on it. And hoping there will be many more to come.’

‘Loved every page and didn’t want to put it down. Looking forward to starting the next one soon.’

… about The Forgotten Children

‘Isabella Muir is a very descriptive, emotionally charged author who lets you feel the pain alongside the characters, instead of merely brushing over it like you’ve just spilt your cuppa. Not only did ‘The Forgotten Children’ fill me with joy, it also created the hunger to know more about those destructive years.’
