It's Christmas here today with a present coming my way from Pam over at A Good Life in Tydd who hosted a giveaway a while ago. Thank you, Pam for the book, which I shall enjoy reading.
Pam lives in a small village in a 300 year old cottage, with a large garden that gives her food, flowers and inspiration for her sewing which is superb. If you like quilting do pop over there to say hello.
This latest book was loaned to me by my friend with an invite to meet with the author at a local lecture hall where he is going to give a talk on his novels, so it was a speed read in order to finish it on time.
The book is a one of a series of detective novels but not the first in the series. Many scenes are set in and around the Fylde coast where we live, hence the interest. Nick brought all his characters to life with the minimum of detail but the maximum of crime, violence, sex and intrigue. It was an easy read but I feel I should have started at book 1 in the series so I could identify more with the main characters. It was also an easy read because my friend could only find this book in large print in the library! I shall definitely read more.
