Cambridge Blue by Alison Bruce #bookreview

Posted on 14th March 2012 in #bookreview/ alison bruce

I really enjoyed this book.

This was a given to me as a gift and I’m so pleased that it was as I’ve never read anything by Alison Bruce before and I’m always over the moon when I find a new author whose work I enjoy reading.

Now I need to find myself a copy of Siren!

The main character, DC Goodhew, has a brilliant mind which he has to try to restrain in order to keep within the rules; and the law!

He is an engaging character, with many quirks and eccentricities as befits the role.

I loved the descriptive walks through Cambridgeshire, it has made the town really come alive for me and I will enjoy looking out for some of the places mentioned in the book.

I thought it was well written, had clever twists and turns with lots of loose ends to unravel and I thoroughly enjoyed reading it.

Like all my reviews, I don’t want to spoil the story for you so I’ll let you find that out for yourself when you read the book!
