Estranged from his wife and living on a caravan park, Pete Bailey thinks the worst is over.

Well away from the marital home where the murders took place, Pete is still hoping to hear from Meg and get a sale on a property that nobody wants to buy.

But the newspaper and TV reports haven’t gone unnoticed and there are some new arrivals in the town.

Teaming up with his TV friend and former lover, Alex Kennedy, Pete goes in search of the truth about Meg and hurtles headlong into a tangled mess along the way.

My Thoughts:

The Murder Place is the second book in the Don’t Tell Meg Trilogy. I would highly recommend reading the books in order as you really do need to have read Don’t Tell Meg which is the first book to fully enjoy this book. There is definitely a lot of background that as a reader would be of benefit to you to know prior to starting this one.

Pete is probably someone, if real, I doubt I would have very much time for. He tends to think with what’s down below than he does with his head. If he used his head then he wouldn’t keep getting into the most dire situations but then where would be the fun in that for us readers? I couldn’t help secretly liking him though as he definitely has a certain charm about him.

Things haven’t got much better for Pete since we met him in the first book. He’s living in a caravan park and trying to keep his head down from the forced fame he has had thrust upon him since the murders. His ex, Alex, is a great character who hasn’t quite got Pete out of her system but I really enjoyed the friendship that goes on between them.

The Murder Place was a gripping read that is quite dark and twisted. It will totally keep you on the edge of your seat. The author certainly keeps you on your toes and I had no clue who was behind the murders and I certainly enjoyed the roller coaster of a ride the author took me on in finding out. Can’t wait to see how it will all end in the third book in the trilogy.

Goodreads rating 4/5 stars.
