The Rising Tide by Ann Cleeves 384 pages

Every five years for the past 50 years a small group of friends meet on Holy Island in northern England to eat, drink, catch up and reminisce. When one of them is found hanged in his room, Detective Vera Stanhope takes on the case. Certain it is murder, not suicide, Vera and her small crew delve into this group’s past in order to find the murderer.

I rarely read mysteries, but I always try to read the latest from Ann Cleeves. Like most of her mysteries, The Rising Tide is a good easy read with wonderful descriptions of the English countryside and of Vera, the cranky, overweight fearless, woman who eventually gets the job done.

    Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family, Nancy !

    I was delighted to read your latest review because mysteries are my favorite genre ! So I now have an unfamiliar author to enjoy ! Scotland Yard Book Store was such a fountain of information for mysteries and, sadly, this has never been the Book Stall’s strong suit !

    Missing you (and Melissa) at the Book Stall ! But some day I will take the journey to Northbrook ! There are never enough minutes in the day for me ! Ha !

    As always, Mary Cavalier 🦃
