Death at Ivy House Betty Rowlands

46038522
Title: Death at Ivy House
Series: Sukey Renolds #5
Author: Betty Rowlands
A quaint cottage in a pretty Victorian terrace with a neatly tended garden stands quiet and still… but inside the bedroom a woman lies dead upon the floor.

Sukey Reynolds is enjoying a quiet period at work, taking time to get her garden in hand, catch up on some cooking and spend time with her son. Murder is the last thing on her mind…

But when she is called to the charming Ivy House to photograph the dead body of a young woman, Sukey feels compelled to drop everything and do all she can to shed light on this baffling mystery. And whilst collecting evidence at a nearby hotel which had break-in around the same time as the murder, she starts to wonder if the two cases might be linked.

The manager just happened to let slip that one of her guests went white as a sheet after reading about the death and disappeared shortly afterwards. The very same guest whose room was broken into… Sukey has a shrewd suspicion about who this man might be, and she fears he too could be in danger.

Although she voices her theories, her detective colleagues are in no mood for any more of her amateur sleuthing. Sukey realises that if she wants to pursue her lead, she’ll have to do it alone. When Sukey agrees to a secret meeting by a remote river, has she made a terrible mistake? Has the killer lured her into the woods and into a trap?

 My Thoughts
 Rating: 4.5
Would I recommend it? yes
Will I read the rest of the series? yes ( in fact I've all ready read books 1-6 ) 
Would I read anything else by this author? maybe
Once again Sukey's in the middle of things and their not good,  especially since it looks like the case maybe linked to the mob , and can she truest the person she's to meet in a secret meeting or is this the killer waiting to end her life, the more she finds out the more things are not what they seem to be , this story just like the others had me reading it to the very last page , with that said I want to thank Netgalley for letting me read it and review it exchange for my honest opinion.
