    Excellent read!

    DS Grace Allendale returns to her hometown after the death of her husband to work on the police force. Her abusive father was murdered there and the case has gone cold. She meets her 2 half-brothers and a half-sister who run a gym in town along with questionable other business ventures. Murders begin occurring with the victims having ties to the gym and Grace is assigned to the case. There are lots of twists and turns in this story line and it is a really good read. I would have liked to see the romantic story line developed more between Grace and Simon, a newspaper reporter. I am looking forward to reading more by this author.

    Hush Hush

    Hush Hush by Mel Sherratt is (I believe) the beginning of a series about Grace Allendale and her cases as detective sergeant in England. It took me awhile to feel invested in the characters and to care about what was going on in the story. Ms Sherratt mixed some past memories with the current story and did an excellent job of meshing the two together. I was given an early copy to review.

    Masterpiece? Not.

    All of life in one book that would be a masterpiece. Dissappointment, frustration, yes, and even some thrills and excitement. But very little amusement, warmth or even admiration for the characters. It could have been so much better.

    A banging start to a shocking new series.

    Who will DS Grace Allendale choose when it comes to her being responsible for solving brutal murders? Will it be her team, or her family? That is the very dilemma facing her. There is a killer on the loose, and as the investigation progresses, Grace sees the unfortunate connection to her own family. Sadly, it seems that she has no one on her side. But, as a dedicated officer, Grace will do all she can to bring an end to the murders taking place, Due to difficult circumstances, Grace has returned to her childhood home. In the town of Stoke, she has gotten the opportunity for a promotion. Unfortunately, not everyone is happy to have her there. Right away, she must deal with contention. Having a very difficult murder case almost as soon as she arrives certainly does not make her transition easy. Grace hates to admit her relation to one of the victims, but the facts are there, and she must work around them in order to stop what is happening. Where will Grace's loyalties lie? Her past is indeed a difficult one. Will the goings on that are occurring right now bring her closer to the family she never knew? And, what of her new job? Will she be able to gain the respect of her coworkers and those in supervision of her? This read by Mel Sherratt may be my first by her, but I already read the second book in the series, Tick Tock. I was definitely drawn into the story due to the crimes, family connection and all its drama. I was quite impressed with the writing style as well as the pacing in this read. Hush Hush is an excellent start to this new series. It was utterly intense and had me very interested in the next book. Many thanks to Harper Collins and to NetGalley for this ARC for review in exchange for my honest opinion.

    Start with book one to understand writing style

    Hush Hush is stuck between a police procedural and maybe a thriller. There are many times I felt like I was missing a part of another story but as a reader I know this is the first in a series. So I was left scratching my head at times. The Characters have dept with enough knowledge readers are able to figure out the killer before Grace figures it out. The story has enough suspense to keep readers wanting more but confused at times on how Grace is able to connect with other people. The story has levels that will have readers thinking about what they had read. Moments of heartache as well as what were you thinking. Fans of this author I will tell you this is a must not new series. Those starting this series might take it slow before buying all her books at once to get a better feel of her writing style. Thank you to Netgalley and the publisher Avon for the advance copy of Mel Sherratt Hush Hush
