Notes: Second in a series, but can be read as a stand-alone! It does reference things from book one that had me confused, but only towards the very end of the book, and a couple of things from the start of it. Otherwise, book one doesn’t have to be read at all to read this one.

Death Comes to Dartmoor has strong vibes of Sherlock Holmes and Charles Dickens in way of dark vibes and mysterious creatures that are killing girls left and right in the middle of the night. With plenty of deaths, the villagers are frightened and turn mob-like, causing much trouble amongst the small village of Dartmoor. There’s lots of action, adventure, and near death experiences for our characters from beginning to end of this book, with mysteries aplenty as well. Who killed the girls? Why would someone pin the blame on an old man? And what of the connection to their friends?

This was an enthralling read that had me from beginning to end, and I found myself rapidly turning page after page, attempting to guess who it was that killed them. I was right about the killer but wrong about the reasons, so the author gets bonus points for that as well.

If you like dark mysteries that are spooky, and full of atmospheric death scenes, I highly recommend you reading this series. It’s got something for everyone, and while long the payout is definitely well worth it!

4/5 stars!

Until next time,
