BLOG TOUR: 6 Ripley Avenue - Noelle Holten



Jeanette is the manager of a probation hostel that houses high risk offenders released on license.

At 3am one morning, she receives a call telling her a resident has been murdered.

Her whole team, along with the eight convicted murderers, are now all suspects in a crime no one saw committed…

Don’t miss the first nerve-shredding standalone thriller from Noelle Holten, author of the Maggie Jamieson series.

What did I think?

6 Ripley Avenue is Noelle Holten's first standalone thriller following the success of her Maggie Jamieson series, of which I'm a huge fan, so I was very excited to read it and I was not disappointed.

Told from various perspectives, the plot centres around the murder of an offender in a probation hostel.  With a house full of killers, any one of the offenders could have done it so the police have their work cut out.  It's not just the offenders who have motive though, neighbours and staff are all under suspicion.  I could say that I got the murderer right but that's only because I suspected everybody at one time or another.

I found it really interesting to glimpse inside a probation hostel and seeing the challenges that brings for staff, offenders and neighbours was very enlightening.  It's certainly not a job I could do so I really must applaud people who work in the probation service.  Just remembering all of the many acronyms is challenging enough!

Gripping, tense and filled with suspense, 6 Ripley Avenue is another winner from Noelle Holten and it's well worth a read.

I received a digital ARC to read and review for the blog tour; this is my honest and unbiased opinion.
