Cold Grave by Jenny O'Brien
{book 6 and the final in the series}

 

I just love Jenny O'Brien.  She writes a great series which brings the characters to life and doesn't overdo the personal entanglements at the expense of the police investigation.

Detective Gaby Darin is a Welsh detective of Italian background, fiercely loyal to her team, job and a woman you'd want in your corner.

After a few DNF books it was a great pleasure to sit back with one of my favorite authors and series. I am sad to see this series end but what a way to tie things up.  Hoping we see the team back together again in the future as I loved watching these characters develop.

Gaby, Mal, Owen, Marie, Jax and Rusty are well fleshed out. I feel as if I know them and can certainly get a mental image of them all. If you are looking for a series which involves police procedurals, a little bit of the detectives' personal lives and is grittier than a cozy - this is your series.

  1. How have I not read this author before? This series sounds perfect for me and I'm so glad this one lived up to the previous books. It's always a little scary to pick up a book in a favorite series - especially after some disappointing reads.

    1. Katherine, this series is one I think you'll like. There are only 6 books, didn't know that until I finished this last book and the author made the annoucement. It's not a cozy mystery but it's not gory or gritty.

  5. I could see plowing right through a six-book series and really enjoying it. This looks like a good one!
