    3. With a murder being committed in the first few pages, this debut novel had me gripped from the start I ve read quite a few books of this genre and what pleased me most about this one was that, unlike others, it didn t rely upon coincidence there was a tangible plot I ve already downloaded the next Esme book to read

    6. Blood Tied is a gentle mystery that intrigued me from the very first page The novel opens with a prologue in which a murder is committed, ensuring that the reader s interest is hooked The story then slows down as we are introduced to Esme Quentin, a researcher with a troubled past, whose sister is in hospital after being found unconscious It soon becomes clear to the reader that the mystery surrounding what happened to Esme s sister is somehow connected to the opening murder The painstaking reso [...]

    9. An interesting and attention holding plot, which warranted four stars However, the over detail of some of the domestuc passages I particularly remember a piece about making tea in the kitchen can be quite annoyingI also found I wanted to know about Tim s accident and how Esme became scarred both have obviously contributed to Esme as portrayed here Perhaps a back story novel I will read from this author.
