    I used to look forward to new Judith Cutler books, especially her Sophie Rivers series, but I ve found her later books disappointing, in fact, boring In this one, her latest protagonist, Jane Cowan, is again dealing with stressful work life, as head teacher of two underfunded primary schools and the stress of living in rented accommodation while she waits for her own house to be repaired Various small events occur which make her uneasy, then a major crime happens I just couldn t get very inte I used to look forward to new Judith Cutler books, especially her Sophie Rivers series, but I ve found her later books disappointing, in fact, boring In this one, her latest protagonist, Jane Cowan, is again dealing with stressful work life, as head teacher of two underfunded primary schools and the stress of living in rented accommodation while she waits for her own house to be repaired Various small events occur which make her uneasy, then a major crime happens I just couldn t get very interested in Jane, the incidents are all giant clues pointing to the eventual resolution villains, and though there seem to be hints at possible plots for a further book, the ending suggests that this maybe the final one and I don t think I m interested in a fourth book I know a book has lost me if I don t read it in one go, and after reading the first few chapters of this I put it down and read 3 others before I bothered finishing it Also, I find adult women in fiction who have to talk to their teddy bears totally irritating Applies to Jane in this series Lena in the Gilt one, I know they re supposed to be abuse survivors but it just grates on me

    I ve read many of Judith Cutler s books and for this series I ve read all three I found this an odd read It takes up five months after the end of the previous book Jane Cowan is juggling being an executive headteacher of two neighbouring village schools and trying to get her recently acquired home renovated As a fellow headteacher I find the school stuff believable, particularly the petty village gossip and rivalries Once again her love life, or lack of it, interweaves with her uncovering o I ve read many of Judith Cutler s books and for this series I ve read all three I found this an odd read It takes up five months after the end of the previous book Jane Cowan is juggling being an executive headteacher of two neighbouring village schools and trying to get her recently acquired home renovated As a fellow headteacher I find the school stuff believable, particularly the petty village gossip and rivalries Once again her love life, or lack of it, interweaves with her uncovering of nefarious goings on in the Kentish countryside To be honest I found the level of explicit violence a bit over the top I think the author wanted to highlight the plight of women, from all classes and cultures, who are harmed by men I found the pace of the story too frenetic for me At the end we are left on a cliffhanger as we were last time I d certainly read another Jane Cowan story but I can t say I warmed to her as I did in the first book

    The third Jane Cowan thriller is another complex thriller set in the misleading bucolic beauty of the English countryside.
