#BlogTour Jealousy is Murder by Jeanette Taylor Ford @books_n_all

Today i am pleased to be closing the blog tour for Jealousy is Murder (River View #4) by Jeanette Taylor Ford so thanks to Jill for the invite.

About the Book

When a young woman is found strangled in her camper-van and her twelve-year-old son goes missing, DI Cooke and DS Grant have a dual problem on their hands. And what does this murder have to do with the fatal stabbing of a young man in Portsmouth several years before? And how on earth are residents of Sutton-on-Wye involved?

My Review

This is book 4 in the series, and whilst it can be read on its own, I would recommend that you read the previous books as there are some back references in this one.

The story follows two problems which don’t seem to be linked to start with. The current crime the team are investigating is that of a woman who has been murdered and her son who has disappeared.

The woman in question lead an interesting life taking her son around the country on a VW camper-van so why would anyone want to kill her.

As we learn about the woman we learn that she would take different men to bed in exchange for drugs and we slowly learn what made her go out in the world with her camper-van.

The story is really well written and flows brilliantly making me want to read more each time I picked it up.

The different threads tied up nicely at the end and the way they all worked together to solve it all made the story.

About the Author

Jeanette Taylor Ford – author bio
I’m a lifetime bookworm! From reading to my children to now creating stories of my own, books have always been a large, important part of my life. Those who have read my stories have enjoyed them, so I finally decided to inflict them upon the world in general. Some of them are ghostly tales, combined with loveable characters and interesting situations which make them ghost stories with a difference. However, I also write children’s stories, the first of which, ‘Robin’s Ring’ is published and I’m working on another Robin story. My new series, The River View Series, presents mild mysteries with a difference – and are set in my beloved Herefordshire.

Much to our youngest daughter’s disgust, I love old buildings, castles, mansions, historical places, especially ruined buildings and they are often the inspiration for my stories.

My retirement from my job as a teaching assistant has given me the opportunity to indulge my love of writing and I ask for no more than to give pleasure to my readers. When not writing, I’m making cards, singing in a ladies’ choir, doing Family History and all sorts of other things. I am married to Tony, a retired teacher, and we have six children and seven grandchildren. We live near Nottingham, England.
