Wooo hoooo!!! I’m thrilled to be welcoming the blog tour for 6 Ripley Avenue by Noelle Holten to A Knight’s Reads!!!
My thanks to Anne Cater of Random Things Tours for inviting me on the blog tour and to One More Chapter for my advanced e-copy of 6 Ripley Avenue which I received from Netgalley. I also preordered a copy which arrived on my kindle last week!
Jeanette is the manager of a probation hostel that houses high risk offenders released on license.
At 3am one morning, she receives a call telling her a resident has been murdered.
Her whole team, along with the eight convicted murderers, are now all suspects in a crime no one saw committed…
Don’t miss the first nerve-shredding standalone thriller from Noelle Holten, author of the Maggie Jamieson series.
What Did I Think?
Someone has done the world a favour and bumped off a despicable criminal. But no matter who the victim is, there’s a new killer on the street and they should be punished. What’s more, they’re somehow connected to 6 Ripley Avenue, a probation hostel, one that the local community is not happy is there.
The story unfolded in front of me from different perspectives, key characters sharing their part and thoughts on the whole situation. This narrative switching kept me on my toes as I tried to fathom who the killer was. And yes, I did hear from the killer in the narrative; their voice displayed a range of emotions from triumph at their act to nerves of being caught. This isn’t quite a cold blooded murder!
I loved Holten’s Maggie Jamieson series so a stand-alone from this author was highly anticipated. It really didn’t disappoint. Holten has curated a tense murder thriller with a slightly unusual amateur detective in journalist Sloane; this woman is tenacious to the end! The cast of suspects and supporting characters are perfectly created to cause confusion and suspicion throughout. As the story reached its conclusion, I finally remembered to breath! Wickedly brilliant crime thriller! Bravo Noelle 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻
