I would like to say a huge thank you to Random Things Tours (Anne Cater) for organising such a wonderful and thrilling book’s tour. I would like to say a huge thank you to HarperCollins for allowing me to read and review a digital copy of this gripping book. I would also like to say a huge thank you to the creative talent, Jane Casey for creating such a gripping, thrilling and yet also a humane and dare I say it romantic suspense book, intrigued? Let’s head over to the blurb and find out a bit more.

At first glance, Jellicoe Close seems to be a perfect suburban street – well kept houses, with pristine lawns, neighbours chatting over garden fences, children playing together.

But there are dark secrets hiding behind the neat front doors, hidden dangers that include a ruthless criminal who will stop at nothing.

It’s up to DS Maeve Kerrigan and DI Josh Derwent to uncover the truth. Posing as a couple, they move into the Close, blurring the lines between professional and personal as never before.

And while Maeve and Josh try to gather the evidence they need, they have no idea of the danger they face – because someone in Jellicoe Close has murder on their mind.

As soon as I read the first (digital) page I was hooked. The characters are sharp, vivid and yes boisterous and noisy and incredibly sharp/tongue witted. There is some past between the two detectives who are sent in undercover to get at the truth, Maeve and Josh and I am sure that at some point they will get together. But the main focus is on what is happening in the Close to generate such a covert operation?

As soon as they arrive they are greeted warmly by everyone, apart from a certain few who either feel intimidated by the presence of Josh or have sinister motivations of their own as they play their own covert operation on the new couple. This is such a brilliant and masterful book, I didn’t see who it could be until the very end and even then there were still more twists.

This is a brilliant and intriguing novel and it’s one that had me trying to puzzle out the main perpetrator and hoping the two would see they are meant to be (sighs sadly I am not sure that will happen… oh well) I also haven’t read the previous books in this series, but it’s written without giving too much of the past away but enough to stoke my appetite into understanding their pasts so this can be read as a stand-alone but if you have read the series it’s just as good if not better in my opinion.

Ratings: 5 🌟s with a large ☕️ and a large 🍰.
