    The Final Reckoning

    This is a brilliant thriller with settings and events vividly described. In the quiet Herefordshire village of Hartley Cross, Lindsay Ellis witnessed the aftermath of a violent murder in her teens. The victim was her boyfriend Simon’s father and the killer was never found. Simon was implicated but not charged and refused to speak to Lindsay again. Lindsay became so traumatised by what she saw that she left Hartley Cross and made a life for herself in Oxford. Some years later, following the death of her mother, Lindsay returns to Hartley Cross to sort out her mothers’ funeral and estate. She now faces up to revisiting Simon, friends she left behind and trying to unravel the mystery surrounding the brutal murder all these years ago. Nick, her friend who she shares a house with in Oxford, offers to help Lindsay. What follows is a catalogue of suspense, intrigue, unpleasant discoveries and an unwilling Simon to recall past events. Lindsay becomes ever more frightened and Nick is determined to get to the truth. But is he too late to save her? I read this novel in one sitting which is unusual for me and I was not prepared for the twist at the end! Highly recommended!

    Dark romance to hold you.

    This is a dark romance. A very engaging story from start to finish. The story starts very gently and easily and develops from there. Despite a limited number of characters the plot is never obvious and keeps you thinking all the way to the end. Lindsay and Nick are friends but the death of Lindsay's mum changes everything. The reaction to Lindsay's return to her childhood home is the crux of the story. To say much is to reveal too much but suffice it to say the romance that ensues is not what you are thinking about. A gripping yarn with a romance attached, a good start to your reading this year.

    Nice twist at the end!

    I enjoyed this book and can happily recommend it. Lindsay’s mother has recently died, so she is returning to her home village for the first time in years to sort things out. As a teenager, she had found a body – the father of her lover at the time. Lindsay wants a good shake on occasion, but on the whole the story was interesting and involving. The ending twist was unexpected but very believable. Another Choclit/Ruby winner!

    Very enjoyable read.

    Lindsay Ellis has to return to the village she grew up in, and where she stumbled across a gruesome murder scene as a teen. Her return to the fictional village of Hartley Cross in Herefordshire triggers a host of long-buried emotions and she is compelled to deal with the unresolved issues that are preventing her from moving forward in her life. We know there is still a killer at large in the village and the longer Lindsay sticks around, the more tangled up in the unsolved crime she becomes. I literally couldn’t put this thriller down and raced through it in a couple of days. The author managed to keep me guessing right up until the final twist, one I didn’t see coming at all. This story’s combination of a smidge of romance and more than a shiver of menace meant I thoroughly enjoyed this chilling tale of murder and mayhem in a beautifully depicted picturesque village setting. I'm looking forward to reading more!
