I do know why I like these. They are not detective novels. It is about Ruth, her family and friends, and that is what I like. The characters drive me to wanting more, and if there is some drama and murder on the side then all the better.




In this one things from the past comes back to haunt them. Another missing girl, and more digging into lost things.




As for Ruth well the drama there is that Nelson is waiting for his son to be born, and who knows maybe it is not his son after all. I might be cruel, but I doubt I have been the only one wishing it would not be and that they could be together. Instead I got angry at Nelson, you can not have your cake and eat it! Ruth deserves better, instead she has ha 10 years of longing.




And as always a great book an I have already started the next one, but then, omg, I am all caught up. The next one will be out first next year.




DCI Nelson has been receiving threatening letters. They are anonymous, yet reminiscent of ones he has received in the past, from the person who drew him into a case that’s haunted him for years. At the same time, Ruth receives a letter purporting to be from that very same person—her former mentor, and the reason she first started working with Nelson. But the author of those letters is dead. Or is he?



The past is reaching out for Ruth and Nelson, and its grip is deadly

  8. Some of my favorite mystery series are the ones where I get caught up in the character's personal lives, too. Poor gal waiting on Nelson. Glad you can still grab up the next one before you have to impatiently wait for new releases.
