Book Review – Death at Eden’s End by Jo Allen @JoAllenAuthor @Aria_Fiction #BookReview #BlogTour #policeprocedural

Many thanks to publisher Aria for my spot on this Blog Tour.

The death of a 100 year old Dr Violet Ross in a care home thought to be natural, later discovered to be a murder got the team of DCI Jude and DS Ashleigh to the forefront to investigate.

My second book by author Jo Allen, this was quite a slow moving detailed story. The writing kept the tension growing with each character adding to it. Some did behave in a blatantly suspicious manner. I had quite a few of them on my list of suspects.

I liked the police team, they worked well. There was a good camaraderie happening. Jude was quite dynamic and kept the investigation moving in the right direction. I was not very fond of the budding romance between him and Ashleigh.

The story had its twists when hints of a past life during the WWII came about, as the victim had her links in it. More murders ratcheted up the tension. I liked how the author tied all the loose ends up to reveal the killer. Quite unexpected.

Overall, this was a solid police procedural which kept my interest going and made me turn the pages right till the end.

I received a free ARC from NetGalley and publisher, and this is my journey into its pages, straight from the heart!! STRICTLY HONEST AND UNBIASED.

All my reviews can be read here

When one-hundred-year-old Violet Ross is found dead at Eden’s End, a luxury care home hidden in a secluded nook of the Lake District’s Eden Valley it’s tragic, of course, but not unexpected. Except for the instantly recognisable look in her lifeless eyes… that of pure terror.

DCI Jude Satterthwaite heads up the investigation, but as the deaths start to mount up it’s clear that he, and DS Ashleigh O’Halloran need to uncover a long-buried secret before the killer strikes again…

  1. Thank you for the efforts, Shalini. Dont get ill, working through the nights.
    A very realistic story, here. Reminds me of the nursing home opposite my home. By the way, some women from India have been working there recently. But they have a facial expression as if they were working in hell. 😉 Michael

      1. It is a complete and total mess – a riot of difference colors in my attempts to organize myself, yet every day is overbooked with the full rainbow that I keep sliding from the previous days… oh my… I am in well over my head!
