Book Description:


Between the devil and the deep blue sea…

Viking treasure is discovered beneath the icy waters of the North Sea and local historian Doctor Anna Taylor is called in to help catalogue the most exciting hoard in living memory. But when a shipwreck diver washes up dead, she’s soon out of her depth. Luckily, she knows just the person to call…

When DCI Ryan arrives at the picturesque fishing town of Seahouses, he’s faced with an impenetrable wall of secrets and lies. As he juggles marine archaeology and the cutthroat world of shipwreck diving, another murder blows the case wide open. To uncover the truth, Ryan must delve deeper into the hearts of those around him to find what lies beneath…

Murder and mystery are peppered with romance and humour in this fast-paced crime whodunnit set amidst the spectacular Northumbrian landscape. 

My Thoughts:

Nothing better than when a book in a series that you love is newly released and being able to read it straight away! 

What I love about this authors books in particular is the settings. They are so descriptive and scenic and it reminds me just how many beauty spots we have here in England. Whilst many of us jet off to different countries, LJ Ross’ books make me want to go off and explore places that are for me, only a matter of  a small number of hours to get to. 

I absolutely loved this story line set in a coastal area that promises ship wrecks. I also really got into Gemma and Hutch’s background and was intrigued to read more. I liked both of them as characters and I like how the author allows the reader time to connect with them as well along with the main characters.

Even though this is the 10th in the series, I felt it read well as a stand alone. I love Ryan, Anna and Frank in particular and it feels comforting to have been on this journey with them throughout the series, so much so that they feel like old friends. They bring so much to the books with a dash of romance and humour in all the right places.

Longstone has to be one of my favourite books in the series. It had all I hoped for and more. The outcome actually nearly made me fall off my seat as I hadn’t seen it coming. I love it when an author totally hoodwinks me and the thrill of being taken by surprise. Brilliant book!

My thanks to the author for a copy of this book. All opinions are my own and not biased in anyway.
