The Rising Tide by Ann Cleeves


Hello my cozy friends,

Today I am reviewing “The Rising Tide” by Ann Cleeves it's the 10th instalment in the Vera Stanhope Mystery Series, a powerful novel about guilt, betrayal, and the longheld secrets people keep. I love the Vera Mystery series and this instalment did not disappoint.  In fact, I thought that it was one of the best in the series.
From Ann Cleeves—New York Times bestselling and award-winning author of the Vera and Shetland series, both of which are hit TV shows—comes the stunning tenth Vera Stanhope novel, The Rising Tide, a powerful novel about guilt, betrayal, and the longheld secrets people keep.

"Ann Cleeves is one of my favorite mystery writers."—Louise Penny

For fifty years a group of friends have been meeting regularly for reunions on Holy Island, celebrating the school trip where they met, and the friend that they lost to the rising causeway tide five years later. Now, when one of them is found hanged, Vera is called in. Learning that the dead man had recently been fired after misconduct allegations, Vera knows she must discover what the friends are hiding, and whether the events of many years before could have led to murder then, and now . . .

But with the tide rising, secrets long-hidden are finding their way to the surface, and Vera and the team may find themselves in more danger than they could have believed possible . . .

The Series is character-driven and also very descriptive you feel like you are right there in Northumbria, England. In this instalment we get to catch up with Vera and her team, as they try to unravel the secrets a group of friends had been keeping that play a big part in the present murder.  

We had lots of suspects but I did guess just before it was revealed.  There was a surprise at the very end, which I can’t wait to see what happens with the team dynamics. 

I highly recommend this book and the Vera Stanhope Mystery series to all my British Mystery loving friends.
