Arlington Terrace~Tracey Martin-Sommers

As you may remember, I read Martin-Sommers’ previous book, Gordon Square, not so long ago which introduced the readers to the dynamic duo of Mike and Mel, the most perfectly imperfect couple of investigators you could ever wish to read about. I loved the first book and I loved the second book! So much so, that I spent most of my time reading it pestering Tracey about the plot! I couldn’t get enough!

I don’t know where to start at all! This is a follow on of the story of the Gordon Girls and we see where they are a few years down the line and there are many developments! Mike and Mel are now Mr and Mrs as well as Mum and Dad! And the twists and turns are literally immense! And the cliff hanger has been well set up for a third instalment which I cannot wait for!

With the previous book, I did mention in my review that there were some grammatical errors which have appeared again in the second instalment, and the time-leap isn’t all that obvious so I did have to read a certain section three times to picture abs understand where it was the reader was meant to be, and a clear cut but confusing error on the same few pages, but I still enjoyed it a lot and was able to overlook these to enjoy the plot over all. I loved Mike and Mel’s development and their latest venture in to parenthood and a new neighbourhood as well and can’t wait to see how they develop further now they’re both back at work!
