Today I am so thrilled to be sharing my review on the blog tour for Death at Eden’s End by Jo Allen. This was released on the 12th of December published by Aria.
Death at Eden’s End by Jo Allen
Release Date: 12th of December
Format: Kindle Edition
Print Length: 322 pages
Genre: Crime Thriller
A brand new DCI Jude Satterthwaite crime mystery from the bestselling Jo Allen.
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…
The second in the unmissable, Lake District-set, DCI Jude Satterthwaite series.
Death at Eden’s End, is a great read that will keep you enthralled and hooked right from the get go. In this second instalment, DCI Jude Satterthwaite is called in to investigate the death of 100 year old Violet Ross at the nursery home she resides at. What at first appears to be a death by natural causes, soon becomes a homicide. Jude and his team have their work cut out for them looking into Violets past to solve the mystery as quickly as they can before the killer strikes again!
When I was first introduced to Jude in book one, I wasn’t sure how I felt about him, but this time around I grew to like him more, which I am sure will keep happening as the series progresses. In this second instalment we see him let his guard down and see a more softer side to his personality which I enjoyed. I also really liked the chemistry between himself and Ashleigh and I look forward to seeing how this will evolve in future books.
I enjoy Jo’s writing style which is both fluid, engaging and how she is able to bring it all together at the right pace, which makes for a quick and easy read. My attention never wavers when I read a book from Jo which is a great thing. I also really love the setting of the Lake District which she brings to life so well throughout the story. While Death at Eden’s End can be read as a stand-alone, I also recommend you reading the first book in the series which I also throughly enjoyed.
Chock full of mystery, suspense, a hint of romance, good characters and excellent writing, Death at Eden’s End is a great follow up to Death by Dark Waters and I can see that this series is just going to keep going from strength to strength as each new book is released. It was an absolute pleasure to read and review Death at Eden’s End which I highly recommend.
Thank-you to NetGalley, Aria and Jo Allen for allowing me to read an advanced copy of Death at Eden’s End which I have reviewed honestly and voluntarily.
