  • Great read

    A great read would recommend. It draws you in from the beginning . I like the fact that you find out three quarters through what happened to the baby as it gives time to explain the in between stories.

  • A total winner!

    A young girl cuts school to sneak a cigarette and discovers the body of a baby. A baby that has been dead for fifteen years. Everyone in the village remembers the crime - Alicia Owen, only three months old, was taken from here carriage parked outside a store while her mother shopped inside. Her mother Marie, already depressed by the death of Alicia’s twin at birth, was first considered a suspect. Her marriage broke up but she has finally found happiness with new husband Vic. DI Beth Chamberlain is assigned to the case as a family liaison officer and has to encourage Marie to relive and remember those dark days fifteen years ago. Meanwhile, Beth is keeping her relationship with DS Nick Geary a secret from her coworkers. This proves to be difficult as they are both investigating the case. Their secret is far from the only one in this action-packed mystery. Hush Little Baby, a 5 star read, is part police procedural, part family drama, part thriller and a total winner. It is third in a series but works well as a standalone. I read the second in the series so perhaps I better understood the Beth’s relationship with her sister but Jane Isaac covers all the basics from the past and provides more twists and turns then you can imagine. Just when you think the case is solved… Thank you to NetGalley, Aria and Jane Isaac for this ARC.

  • A good read

    They had no idea what was coming next... The killer's words had me all jittery with eagerness at what was awaiting me just round the corner. Author Jane Isaac's new book with a missing child found 15 years later entombed in a slab of concrete stopped my heart at the imagery. Beth Chamberlain, the family liason, was empathetic, yet had the core of steel running through her. She was back, and she made the book appear brighter and suspenseful. Beth along with her partner and boss Nick was meticulous in her work and caring with her emotions. The story dealt with the child's case along with another mystery from the earlier books. This was at a slightly slower pace as it was a cold case. The book could have concentrated on only one case. It would made it more interesting as a lost child was an intriguing arc. Having read most books by this author, I loved the format in which she wrote where I got to know points of investigation, the family's thoughts, and in this, the perpetrator's. The story had some gentle twists. All that made the book into a fun read. Overall, I enjoyed my breakfast read at a sedate pace.

  • A brilliant addition to the series!

    For this third instalment in the DC Beth Chamberlain series, Jane has crafted a harrowing story that heats up a 15 year old cold case, when the body of a baby is found entombed in concrete on a construction site. The story is hard hitting and confrontational, but with Jane’s experience as an established author, she deals with it extremely well. Nothing in the story is sugarcoated, which does make for a gut wrenching, realistic and compelling read. With each book that is released, I just love Beth more and more. She is the heart and soul of the series and is always such a pleasure to read. Her mettle is definitely tested this time around, when the case becomes personal in a terrifying way and that also brings with it an evil back from her past. What makes this series stand out for me is that it is told from Beth’s perspective, as a family liaison officer and not from a police detective’s, which does make for a point of difference and a nice change. Jane Isaac is on fire with this series and Hush Little Baby is another outstanding addition to it. Each story can be read as a stand-alone and is easy to follow along, but it does make for a better reading experience starting with book one. Hush Little Baby is a gripping, thrilling and twisty read that I could not get enough of which I highly recommend and I can’t wait to see what Jane comes up with next! Thanks for another brilliant read Jane. Thank you to NetGalley, Aria Fiction and Jane Isaac for allowing me to read an advanced copy of Hush Little Baby which I have reviewed honestly and voluntarily.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • A Superb Series!

    A terrific addition to this wonderful series! With the discovery of a baby's body on a building site, the team of detectives - including DC Beth Chamberlain - find out that the only infant who has gone missing in there are was fifteen years ago. Could this possibly be the same child? In re-opening this cold case, Beth must act as liaison officer to the parents, now divorced, and take them through their painful past once more. At the same time, Beth has ongoing issues of her own to deal with. Can she cope with it all? Once I've chosen a novel, I put it on my list and begin reading the story without referring to the blurb again; it made my day when Beth Chamberlain popped up in this one - I welcomed her like an old friend. This is a superb series, focusing very much on the crime and the case in hand but also showing the hard slog undertaken by all members of the team to get a result. I love that I can never find fault (not that I try to, you understand, but I hate to find obvious holes in a plot) and whilst each book is a new story and doesn't hark back to the previous one there is a thread which connects them. The personal lives of those investigating is there but doesn't get in the way of the daily grind. Each character comes to life on the page and there are, of course, the in-house politics to deal with. I can't wait to see what Beth gets her teeth into next! I loved everything about this one, and highly recommend it. Absolutely a five star read!
