    Highly recommended

    It's the first book I read in this series and won't surely be the last as I found it entertaining and gripping. It's an excellent police procedural, with a solid mystery and a well thought cast of characters. The mystery was full of twists and turns and it kept me guessing. I can't wait to read the next instalment. Highly recommended. Many thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for this ARC, all opinions are mine.

    Great read, police procedural

    I hadn’t read the first book in this series, so was a little worried that there would be bits I had missed, but with this book I felt it could totally be read as a stand-alone novel. With lots of great characters, a good team of officers led mainly by Senior Detective Jude Satterthwaite, the only person overseeing him is the not so nice Detective superintendent Groves, although he didn’t appear in the story much, except for a couple of remarks about him. He was the only character I didn’t really like within the police team. There is a lot of tension between Satterthwaite and recently newly arrived DS Ashleigh O’Haloran, throughout the book it was a will they won’t they. I will be interested to see how this is going to work in the next book. Who would want to kill a 100-year-old lady? Surely time was running out for her, but murdered she is, a resident in Eden’s End nursing home, a very expensive home for residents, being run on a shortage of staff, and paying them very low wages. Initially there was to be no autopsy as Violet was 100 it would normally be the local GP come out and do a death certificate and the body whisked away to the undertakers. But on this occasion Becca a local nurse and ex girlfriend of Satterthwaite had been at Eden’s End when violet had been found dead in her chair, Becca didn’t like the look on the old ladies face, it wasn’t the look of someone who had just died peacefully. She had contacted Satterthwaite and asked to meet him to ask for advice. He told her to call the number to report it if she felt it was suspicious. Becca had ended their long term relationship, and he had struggled to get over it. Post autopsy it was found the Violet Ross had been murdered it was now up to Satterthwaite and his team to catch the killer, who had motive, Monica the niece who had been visiting a short time before she had passed, Karen the manager of the nursing home, Klemmie Markowics a Polish carer, who really liked Violet mainly because she spoke Polish, she also did have Violets Brooch in her possession, claiming she had given it to her as a gift. Ellie the head nurse. Set in the beautiful Lake District, it was nice to read the mentions of the area, the story flowed, not a fast pace but not too slow either, there were always questions being asked. I look forward to the next book in the series. Thank you to #netgalley and #Ariapublishers for an eARC of this book in exchange for an honest, fair and unbiased review.

    Another great read by Jo Allen

    Death at Eden’s End, is a great read that will keep you enthralled and hooked right from the get go. In this second instalment, DCI Jude Satterthwaite is called in to investigate the death of 100 year old Violet Ross at the nursery home she resides at. What at first appears to be a death by natural causes, soon becomes a homicide. Jude and his team have their work cut out for them looking into Violets past to solve the mystery as quickly as they can before the killer strikes again! When I was first introduced to Jude in book one, I wasn’t sure how I felt about him, but this time around I grew to like him more, which I am sure will keep happening as the series progresses. In this second instalment we see him let his guard down and see a more softer side to his personality which I enjoyed. I also really liked the chemistry between himself and Ashleigh and I look forward to seeing how this will evolve in future books. I enjoy Jo’s writing style which is both fluid, engaging and how she is able to bring it all together at the right pace, which makes for a quick and easy read. My attention never wavers when I read a book from Jo which is a great thing. I also really love the setting of the Lake District which she brings to life so well throughout the story. While Death at Eden’s End can be read as a stand-alone, I also recommend you reading the first book in the series which I also throughly enjoyed. Chock full of mystery, suspense, a hint of romance, good characters and excellent writing, Death at Eden’s End is a great follow up to Death by Dark Waters and I can see that this series is just going to keep going from strength to strength as each new book is released. It was an absolute pleasure to read and review Death at Eden’s End which I highly recommend. Thank-you to NetGalley, Aria and Jo Allen for allowing me to read an advanced copy of Death at Eden’s End which I have reviewed honestly and voluntarily.

    Kept me guessing until the end

    I always find myself drawn to mysteries set in the beautiful Lake District, and this one didn’t disappoint. When 100 year old Violet Ross is found dead in her bed in a care home, at first it’s assumed to be from natural causes. When a nurse has her doubts, she shares them with DCI Jude SatterwIte. Sure enough, the autopsy reveals murder, and it’s up to the DCI and his team to sort out alibis and motives. The story was a nicely balanced mix of police work and character development, and kept me guessing until the end. I hadn’t realized this was the second book in the series, and will certainly go back and read the first, although this can easily be read as a stand alone. Looking forward to more books in the series. Thanks to the publisher and NetGalley for an advanced readers copy.
