  • Another good read

    By Livingwithaspringer
    I am enjoying this series and look forward to the next book. The writing style is good and easy to read. The Lake District setting is again put to effective use featuring in a few important parts of the story. The private life of the main character, Kelly, adds to the enjoyment of the book for me. How her situation is evolving is a link to the previous books and I do want to know what happens next. There are enough suspects in this story for you to wonder up to the final pages whether what you finally think has happened is the answer. Will there be a final twist, or not?
  • Great Read

    By Bookaholic Bob
    Dead End by Rachel Lynch is the latest in the authors DI Kelly Porter series,although this is the third book in the series it can be quite easily read as a stand-alone.When the body of seventh Earls of Lowesdale is found hanging in his study and an upturned stool on the floor,it looks nothing more than a suicide but the coroner upon viewing the scene is not convinced and DI Kelly Porter is called in to investigate.DI Porter is soon given another investigation as two female campers have disappeared.Kelly and her team are now investigating two cases,both set again in picturesque Cumbria,add to the mix another investigation of a more personal nature.Both stories are cleverly woven together by the author in this excellent police procedural. I would like to thank Rachel Lynch,Netgalley and Canelo for giving me the opportunity to read Dead End.
