#BlogTour: The Sinister Gathering by Diane Ezzard diane_ezzard @rararesources #TheSinisterGathering

Thrilled to be featuring this one which is Book 3 in the Sophie Brown series. My thanks to the author for the review copy and to Rachel of Rachel's Random Resources for inviting me on to the blog tour. You can get your copy of the book:
Amazon US -

Sophie attends a well-being retreat hoping to find herself, instead she finds a dead body.
Coming to the Scottish Highlands, she hopes to escape life and get in touch with her inner self. She wants to free herself from the anxieties that have gripped her for years.
Peace and harmony are advertised but what she discovers is anything but.
She is around women with other ideas. As she gets to know the strange bunch staying at Glenloch Hall, fights and arguments become the norm.
She should never have entered that fateful property.
She was looking for peace but found death.

My Thoughts:

I was really excited when I found out there was to be a blog tour for the third in the Sophie Brown series. I read and reviewed the first two last year and you can read my thoughts on those here.

I am so pleased that Sophie Brown is back as with each book in the series that goes by we find out a little bit more about her and get to know her that little bit more. This one is no different and is another very accomplished mystery. 

Sophie is recovering from her addictions and a retreat in the Scottish Highlands seems like a good place to be to help with the calmness and well being she desperately needs. However Glenloch Hall is not quite what she had in mind when someone is found dead. The amateur sleuth that Sophie is means that this sends her in to overdrive. Could she be next on the list? 

This book showed a much more mature version of Sophie, I liked her before but I liked her even more in this one. Diane Ezzard has created a host of excellently drawn female characters. The darkness and mystery that pervade every level of this story is palpable. 

I thoroughly enjoyed this one and although it can be read on its own I would really recommend reading the series in its entirety.
