It's not just the county and its descriptions that I love about her books, though. There are wonderful characters and some exciting plots. I've read all the books - in order - and can't wait for the next one.

But unfortunately it wasn't. It was very much worse. The mystery arose from extremely unlikely circumstances in WW2, and had apparently been hidden for decades, then suddenly everyone decides to speak - so someone murders them to protect their ancestors. Really?
It was such a poor ending ... in a WW2 boat that has suddenly appeared yet seemingly only the murderer can see it ... (and in exactly the same formula as first 2 books - murderer traps Ruth, explains their nefarious deeds, then attacks Ruth even though she is peripheral to the investigation) that it has made me abandon the series.
If you enjoy good detective fiction, don't read this.
The third book in the Dr Ruth Galloway series opens with the discovery of bodies hidden on a secluded stretch of beach. Above the fissure where the bodies are found sits a gothic-style house, and as the clues unfold the solution to the mystery appears intricately connected with its occupants…
This is a gritty, war-crimes mystery, and perhaps because of the nature of the crimes, this story came across as quite dark. However, as with the previous books in the series, it is well-plotted and every chapter moves the story on. It’s not only the mystery that is unsettling either, in this outing Ruth Galloway is also facing the challenge of managing her demanding career alongside motherhood. Passionate both about caring for her baby daughter and the desire to continue her work, Ruth finds herself feeling conflicted and unexpectedly vulnerable.
‘The House at Sea’s End’ is very much a character-driven mystery, and although the first three books in this series have a very similar structure, this was still an entertaining read. Once again, the mystery builds to a thrilling climax with Ruth in a perilous situation, and once again it also reveals more about Ruth’s intrinsic nature, but this episode also tells much more about the key secondary characters and the impact they have on Ruth’s life.
