  • 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.

  • 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.

  • A Terrific Crime Mystery

    I freely admit I've been really looking forward to the second Jude Satterthwaite mystery; the first was a bobby dazzler and this one kept up the high standard! With the death of a very elderly resident in a local care home, no red flags are raised until Jude's ex-partner has a quiet word with him. As luck would have it, the case falls on DCI Satterthwaite's desk and he and his team get to work. Once more, we're back in the majestic scenery of the Lake District, which author Jo Allen describes so well. I love that she mixes in real places with imaginative ones, but the scenery is undoubtedly Cumbrian. Following on from the first novel, Jude and his team are all beginning to settle into their new positions including new member Ashleigh. With wonderful characterisations, this book kept me gripped right from the very beginning and I devoured each and every detail. Whilst paying complete attention I had an idea of who was involved, but I didn't get it completely right. However, I love this series and will be watching for the next in this terrific crime mystery. A great read, and one which earns all five stars.

    Thanks for your feedback!
