  • Well worth spending some time with Kate in the Wes

    following the continued adventures of Kate Redmond is once again an engrossing read. The more gruesome events are handled with a careful touch, and although not flinching from essential details, succeeds in conveying a fraught atmosphere. The well rounded characterizations and their frequently torturous back stories helps to make a rich and intriguing tapestry of emotions and actions. The abrupt ending is the only criticism I have, expecting and wanting just a bit more. But i am sure that it provides an appropriate cliffhanger, as this is obviously a series planned to continue.

  • Top rate police procedural

    Another great Kate Redman adventure. A top rate police procedural with a nice blend of both the personal and professional sides of Kate. And the occasional blurring of the lines between them. Once you pick it up it will be hard to put down.

  • Pulse a truly engaging page turner.

    With Pulse, the tenth in the series about Kate Redman, Celina Grace has done it once again! Kate is busy trying to keep the balance between her burgeoning romance with her boss, Chief Inspector Anderton and the fact that they have to be strictly professional at work, something which obviously is not easy. Mark Olbeck is having difficulties coping with stress within his relationship and the upcoming adoption and on top of that is then confronted with a murder victim who is an old lover of his. Add to this the fact that the man has been found in a graveyard, posed fully clothed on a grave and that most of his blood appears to be missing and you have a situation which is weird to say the least. I do realise that what I have just written could sound like the script for a soap, but the author manages to weave all of these elements into a believable whole and enlarges the main characters even further. When another murder is discovered, it becomes clear that the first killing was not just a spontaneous action but that it was definitely planned. Could it possibly be that the team is being confronted with a vampire? Such things don’t exist in the real world, do they? Pulse was, for me a real page turner with very real characters and extremely believable situations. Somehow, Celina Grace manages to keep things moving and come up with original situations, something which cannot be easy with so many books to choose from within this genre. I received an advance reader copy from the author but can honestly say that I would happily have paid for the book.

  • Well paced, convincing police procedural

    I have read all the Kate Redman mystery series. I like them because a) female protagonist b) she has proper feelings and frailties c) the stories are based in the West Country, but aren't annoyingly rural c) the plots are convincing d) they are always well written. I've paid for most of the novels, but Celina Grace added me to her advance reader list so I received a copy of this in exchange for minimal proof reading and an honest review. It's rare for me to come across an author who doesn't feel the need to ramp up the graphic violence in a police procedural and more often than not I find the female characters aren't fully rounded. Not so with this author. All the characters are well drawn with individual traits so that they feel genuine. I have got to know most of them over the past 9 novels, and the author introduces new ones as and when appropriate. We get plenty of detail about the murders (of course there are murders!) but it's never excessive. Some authors seem to have a thesaurus open at every sentence,, opting for multiple adjectives for every little feeling or event, which I find irritating and distracting. Celina Grace manages to describe everything with a welcome freshness that feels very natural, making for a really rapid and comfortable read. Kate has plenty of moments that strike me as real, both personally and professionally. Each novel in the series shows her personal development and she is growing in exactly the way a real colleague does as you work with them. I won't tell you the plot or the outcome - if it is good news for her or bad, (spoilers, sweetie!) but it picks up where novel 9 left off and I am really looking forward to the net one. Would I have paid full price? Yes, bird - I would happily do so. :-)
