    Murder Mystery - Police Procedural

    The Other Woman by Jane Isaac DC Beth Chamberlain #1 Mystery, murder and more in this story of a man murdered in cold blood leaving two women without a “partner” and four children without a father. Who killed Cameron and why? What did Monika and Sara have to do with it – if anything? How will the police go about uncovering why the murder took place? Will the murderer be caught? So many questions and as each clue was revealed I was drawn in further. What I liked: * Beth – she seemed focused, smart and dedicated to her job and family. She’s a good policewoman and capable of thinking on her feet and taking action when needed. * The police team – being introduced to them I have a feeling I will like DCI Lee Freeman and Sergeant Nick Geary along with some others on the team * Watching the police procedural aspects followed during the investigation * The way the story unfolds – pace and plotting were well done * Not knowing for sure who the bad guy was till near the end...even though I had read the end before the middle of the book * That it made me think and care and hope for a good outcome for all involved in a messy situation What I did not like: * The bad guy – really seemed off mentally and totally irrational * The situation I have a feeling Beth’s sister is getting into with the man she has chosen to spend time with * The first murder victim – Cameron was not a man that I could like even though it seemed his partners and children probably did * Being reminded again of how easily humans perpetrate evil against one another * Having to say goodbye to the characters in the story and having to wait for book two of the series to find out what happens next Did I enjoy this book? Yes Would I read more in this series/by this author? Yes Thank you to NetGalley and Aria for the ARC – This is my honest review. 5 Stars

    Gripping .. Full of Surprises!

    Now here's a book full of surprises - and they just keep on coming! Cameron Swift is heading off to play golf one Sunday morning when he is murdered, right outside his own home. DC Beth Chamberlain finds herself appointed to keep the family in touch with the investigation and pick up any information she can to help the team. What a great start to a series! This one certainly kept me on my toes, guessing all the way through. This is a carefully plotted story, beautifully written with excellent true-to-life characters and bodes well for future book featuring Beth Chamberlain. A gripping read and, frankly, I had no idea how it was going to end - it was a revelation, and then some. But even after the crime is wrapped up, the author finishes the story off - just as I like. It annoys me when there are loose ends, but no such worries here. An excellent read which I'm happy to recommend and give 4.5*.

    A brilliant start to a new series

    What a great start to a new series! Full of lies and deceit, mixed with police procedural, The Other Woman packs a hell of a punch that had me glued to the pages right from the get go. It is a fast paced read that is enthralling and thrilling, with an opening that chilled me to the bone. Told through great writing with a mixed bag of likeable and unlikable characters, all well developed and brought to life perfectly, The Other Woman has it all and you should add it to your 2020 reading list right now! The grieving widow. The other woman. But which one is which? Jane has crafted a solid and intriguing plot that see’s main protagonist DC Beth Chamberlain called in to investigate and be the family liaison officer after the murder of Cameron Swift, he has been gunned down in the driveway of the home he shares with his partner Monika and their two children. However, things get strange when the police receive a call from Sara, who has just returned from holidays after finding out the horrifying news that her partner has been murdered. Sara wants to know how the police could not have told her that Cameron was dead, Cameron Swift. Well that’s awkward isn’t it? Turns out that Cameron has been a very naughty boy and has a whole other family with Sara, and their two daughters! It then soon becomes apparent as we get more insight into who Cameron is, that one of his lies may now have caught up with him and it just may have cost him his life. I really loved the character of Beth and can’t wait to read more of her in future books. She is smart, stands up for what is right and is like a dog with a bone in ensuring justice is served. She is brought to life beautifully, however I get the feeling there could be a bit more to her that Jane is holding back and I can’t wait to learn more about her. While my heart went out to Monika and Sara, I did like how I was kept second guessing them. Both suffering the ultimate betrayal, they have the perfect motive for murder and I couldn’t wait to see how it was going to unfold once Jane brought them together. I think it is fair to say that Cameron is a giant dirt bag to do what he did to those two women and children. I must say, he has been written extremely well as the perfect villain. How he was able to keep up the pretence demonstrated that he was a very gifted sociopathic, self serving, master manipulator! I really enjoyed the ease of Jane’s writing, I found it to be very engaging and my attention never wavered when reading this book. Jane is a new author to me and one who’s work I am so glad to have been introduced to. I instantly connected with Beth and I am now looking forward to catching up with her again in the next instalment and to see what Jane has in store for her! It was an absolute pleasure to be able to read and review The Other Woman, I highly recommend it! I can’t believe it is still only January and I feel like I have another serious contender for my top books of 2020! Thank-you to NetGalley, Aria Fiction and Jane Isaac for allowing me to read an advanced copy of The Other Woman which I have reviewed honestly and voluntarily.
