Holy Island is a debut novel and since this was published four more books in the series have followed, which I’ve also read.

Apart from the appeal of the cover, crime/mystery is a favourite genre. Because I chose to buy I mentioned the fact I hoped it wouldn’t turn out to be more romance than mystery. It didn’t! Far from it.  Continue reading
