I'm on the last few chapters. I adore this series! What's your thoughts on this one?

Best one for a while I think. Was a bit ! by the plot twist at the end. Come back when you have finished, I don't want to spoil it for you

I like these books but I'm always amazed by how accommodating Ruth's childminder is! She seems to happily agree to having the little girl at weekends, at the drop of a hat, and collected hours late....

Just finished it. I have to say i enjoyed it but think it was one of the weakest in terms of the plot. And how they managed to solve it was just hmm . But I still love the cast of characters!

There are a lot of loose ends this time. Do you think the next one will carry on from here? SPOILER ALERT I can't believe Michelle is pregnant. Is it Nelson's? Poor Ruth. I really thought they might get together this time.

Spoiler alert:


I think the baby is Tim's baby? Though I thought the whole point was they didn't sleep together! But it certainly implied the baby was his. Looking forward to the next one to see what happens smile

As Tim is black, that would be pretty hard to disguise!

Clawdy Sun 26-Feb-17 14:20:43

Michelle is an incredibly irritating character. Or is it just me?

Solasum Sun 26-Feb-17 22:43:16

I agree. Very shallow.

I just finished it! I wonder if Ruth is going to get pregnant again after their amorous moment?!
Definitely implied it was Tim's. But why would she try and pass it off as Nelson's seeing as it'll be a bit tricky to disguise confused
I agree the actual plotting was a little on the weak side but I did enjoy it. Elly Griffiths has assembled a nice group of characters to follow..

Just finished - bit disappointed by the ending but tbh I'm never massively convinced by her plotting but I love the characters and settings. I was a bit confused by the Michelle news - agree I thought it was made pretty clear that she did not sleep with Tim, not sure where she is going with that? I was also unconvinced by the Ruth and Nelson post stab love making shock

Clear that they hadn't slept together in last book...not necessarily so in this one. I do agree though, how or why would she try to pass off baby as Nelsons. Unless, she doesn't know and wants to wait to find out...
