A Killer Strikes (A Shade Darker Book 1) by Georgia Rose #NewRelease

The perfect family… The perfect murders…

 A family massacred. A village in mourning. Can anyone sleep safely while a killer is on the loose?

 Laura Percival, owner of The Stables, notices something wrong at her friend’s house when out on her morning ride. Further investigation reveals scenes she’ll never forget.

 While the police are quick to accuse, Laura is less so, defending those around her as she struggles to make sense of the deaths. And all the time she wonders if she really knew her friends at all.

 A chance encounter opens up a line of investigation that uncovers a secret life. One that Laura is much closer to than she ever realised.

 A Killer Strikes is a gripping domestic thriller. If you like character-driven action, suspenseful storytelling and dark revelations then you’ll love this exciting novel.

My Review

Laura, a woman with a past, is the successful owner of a livery yard, assisted by friends, Harry and Pip. She doesn’t have to worry about domestic duties, as supportive husband, Seb, works short hours, mainly at home. Soon after the New Year holiday, Laura’s fulfilling life is turned upside down when she discovers that her friends and near neighbours have been brutally murdered.

As the police question her friends, she decides to investigate a lead herself. While her husband is in London on business, she visits a suspicious private club. Gossip and accusations spread round the village point the finger at the wrong targets and neither Laura nor the police can pinpoint the murderer.

Heroines in Georgia Rose’s novels, speaking to us in the first person, become our trusted friends, so we share Laura’s anger and confusion and admire her bravery. Her life at the stables is a realistic, engaging account and as the tension builds up, we feel her anger and fear. A thrilling page-turner.
