Book Review-Vengeance On Tyneside (Agnes Lockwood Mysteries Book 3)-Eileen Thornton

Thursday, May 16, 2019

Agnes Lockwood has a definite tendency to run across dead bodies! And being an amature sleuth she insists on helping solve the cases-despite her her DCI boyfriend, Alan Johnson, not wanting her to. Of course she is usually the one who can actually think out of the box!

This is a very convoluted case involving a couple of deaths. The police think they know who it is--Agnes thinks they are wrong and proceeds to investigate on her own. Which causes problems with said boyfriend!!

Then Agnes herself is caught by the killer---

Lots of twists and turns --you will probably not guess who the real killer is until it is revealed!

This is a clean murder mystery series with lovable characters!! It reads fast-mainly because I doubt you will put it down until the end!

About the Book: (from Amazon)

Agnes Lockwood returns to Tyneside, only to stumble across another dead body.

On her first visit, she helped the police solve a murder and gained quite the reputation as an amateur sleuth. Now, she is simply looking forward to meeting again with Alan Johnson, a D.C.I. with the Newcastle police force.

She is hoping their relationship will continue to blossom, but on her first day back in the city, she gets caught up in another murder.

And this time, her intrusion into the police investigation pushes Alan Johnson’s patience to the very limit.

This is a standalone mystery, and can be enjoyed even if you haven't read other books in the series.

About the Author: (from Amazon)

Though I now live in Kelso in the Scottish Borders, I was born and brought up on Tyneside; the setting for my last three novels. Once a Geordie, always a Geordie, as the saying goes.

Though I only began writing in 2001, many of my short stories and articles have been published in national magazines here in the UK. But then I felt the urge to move on to writing something with a little more grit.

Therefore, my first novel, The Trojan Project, is an all-action thriller. During the writing process, I felt I was on the ride of my life, as I added so many spine-chilling incidents. I was determined to grab the readers' attention from the very beginning and give them the roller-coaster read of their lives.

Since then, I have turned to writing women's fiction. with Divorcees.Biz, a novel of fun and romance, shortly followed by, Only Twelve Days, a heart-warming romance.

However, after deciding to turn my hand to writing a series of cozy murder mysteries, I chose my hometown as the setting. Murder on Tyneside - Agnes Lockwood Mysteries Book 1, was released in December 2016, with Agnes as the new sleuth on Tyneside. Death on Tyneside (Book 2) came next and more recently Vengeance on Tyneside (Book 3)

Hopefully, there will be a Book 4 in the series. How could I possibly let Agnes Lockwood down, when she has given me so much fun - she is part of me now.
