"Holy Island is a blockbuster" - Daily Express

Detective Chief Inspector Ryan retreats to Holy Island seeking sanctuary when he is forced to take sabbatical leave from his duties as a homicide detective. A few days before Christmas, his peace is shattered and he is thrust back into the murky world of murder when a young woman is found dead amongst the ancient ruins of the nearby Priory.

When former local girl Dr Anna Taylor arrives back on the island as a police consultant, old memories swim to the surface making her confront her difficult past. She and Ryan struggle to work together to hunt a killer who hides in plain sight, while pagan ritual and small-town politics muddy the waters of their investigation.

Murder and mystery are peppered with a sprinkling of romance and humour in this fast-paced crime whodunnit set on the spectacular Northumbrian island of Lindisfarne, cut off from the English mainland by a tidal causeway.

"Superbly written. Well thought out plot and in-depth knowledge of the location made this a must read book. Can't wait for the next one."

"Brilliant, fantastic, many more words I could say. This book was totally gripping from start to finish and the ending had me mentally saying 'oh no what next'. Can't wait for her next book."

"I have never been to Lindisfarne but will definitely plan to go after reading this book. I enjoyed it tremendously, with enough pace and story telling to keep me engrossed. What an imagination!"

"I couldn't put this book down from the minute I picked it up! A great mix of thriller, romance, intrigue with a hint of humour."

"I love a crime novel and this one did not disappoint! Great twists and turns and good ending. Looking forward to the next one."

"Great page turner, with a lively plot that holds numerous twists and turns; keeps you guessing until the very end. Fab new author - well done!"

The one New Year's resolution I made was to seriously tackle my TBR pile, especially my groaning kindle. The plan is to post mini reviews for older books that already have a ton of feedback on sites such as Goodreads, unless it really catches my fancy & I feel the need to gush. Sadly, no gushing ...

3.5 Good crime plot.
And some very interesting characters. I liked the interactions, the dialogues and the plot. What was a bit disappointing was the quick and actually unnecessary romance part. A good crime novel.
