“A Nice Place To Die” by J. Woollcott – Book Review @levelbestbooks @JoyceWoollcott #ANicePlaceToDie #BookReview

It is at all times rewarding to begin a brand new sequence, attempt a brand new writer, and your efforts repay. It was an engrossing novel, basically a police procedural, but it surely additionally contained home thriller parts and had a little bit of romance for good measure.

The setting was in and round Belfast, Northern Eire, and featured members of the PSNI (Police Service of Northern Eire).

When DS Ryan McBride goes to the scene of a homicide, he shortly realizes he knew the sufferer – had slept together with her the truth is. Ought to he confess his one night time stand and be faraway from the case??? He decides to not.

Later, he realizes that the sufferer had a twin sister, and he’s additionally drawn to her, though he already has a ‘once more, once morerelationship together with his former girlfriend, Bridget. McBride is a diligent cop who works lengthy hours. He lives alone on a farm he inherited from his grandfather. His solely firm is his trustworthy canine, Finn, a wire-haired fox terrier. He’s fairly near his youthful sister, Erin, a meals blogger who typically gives him with meals when he’s too busy to cook dinner for himself. He’s considerably distant from his father, who could be very disenchanted in him. McBride has an honors diploma in legislation and his father, a lawyer, assumed he would be a part of his prestigious legislation agency. As an alternative, MacBride joined the PSNI.

His second in command, DS Billy Lamont is a household man. Married, father of three little ladies to whom he’s devoted. Sure attitudes and actions of Lamont create a little bit of levity throughout this very severe story.

DC Wylie, however, acts as McBride’s nemesis. He’s an obnoxious man who occurs to be the chief inspector’s nephew. He has a smug, authoritative angle, does little actual work, and has been fast-tracked for a promotion…

The opposite members of McBride’s workforce had been all fascinating to learn and added plenty of curiosity to the novel. Hopefully they’ll have a extra related position in future books within the sequence.

Informed primarily from McBride’s perspective, we additionally hear from Kathleen McGuire, the homicide sufferer. His story takes place within the months main as much as his homicide.

Kathleen discovered herself in a poisonous relationship. Her lover was extremely jealous and controlling.

As his investigation into the homicide continues, the physique depend rises. McBride faces private {and professional} challenges. The skillful mixing of those plots is what I loved essentially the most on this guide. The writer added some twists that I hadn’t anticipated and ended the guide with a storyline that left me with a smile on my face.

Extremely advisable! I look ahead to the subsequent title on this “Blood Relations” sequence due out subsequent summer time.This evaluate was voluntarily written and my score was on no account influenced by the truth that I obtained a free digital copy of this novel from Stage Finest Books by way of NetGalley. It was launched on August 30, 2022.
