Sanctuary is the eighth in the bestselling Kate Redman Mysteries series, from crime writer Celina Grace.
I am a fan. I have read lot of books by this author. I have to say, I started this book and then stopped reading it. I just couldn’t get into it. But then I did pick it up again. Celine doesn’t disappoint. I stuck to it this time. Glad I did. I enjoyed the pairing of Kate and Chloe. They made a great team.45
Very good read if you like police drama set in England. The pace was a bit slow for me. Author does not give you and insight to the pov of the non-police actors. Seemed almost like it was a condensed version.45
This was a great book and it will not disappoint. The characters were well developed and story line was believable. It kept you guessing with the twists and turns don’t want to give the ending away but the villains were not who I thought. Will read this author again.55
Don’t think I read any of your books before but I really enjoyed this one also reading the tidbits of the others. Seems like I’d better look for more of your books. I love reading a great mystery. Thank you!55
Best of the series thus far! I thoroughly enjoyed the story.55
Kate Redman, always a good read.55
only a great mystery, but also a study in the human condition. Why do people behave the way they do? What motivates them? Greed, money, insecurity or empathy. All of these are examined in this thrilling mystery. The cast of characters all have their individual traits, most are lovable, if not unforgettable! And the scenes are described so well that you can just picture it yourself, so easily. Feel the mist, imagine the colorful autumn leaves and even gain a whiff of an unpleasant odor. Yes, all of your senses will be delving into Kate’s mysteries-another memorable novel for you to enjoy! -Jan Farrell Repath P.S. I hope Kate decides to go with Tin, at least for a little while!!!55
Another fast-paced, well-written story that holds your interest from start to end. Love the characters and look forward to the next Kate Redman mystery!55
Sweet, straightforward characters set to address modern day issues of trafficking victims and asylum seekers. The book’s length forced the storyline to simplicity. I felt some of the language selection, particularly at the beginning of the book, included forced vocabulary and redundant phrases. Still an overall nice read.35
Good reading ..a book that kept you I suspense..will she go to New York? Can’t wait to read on.55
