BLOG TOUR: Her Charming Man (The Gloucestershire Crime Series Book 2) - Rachel Sargeant

DI Steph Lewis of West Gloucestershire Police is working two cases.

A woman is found dead in the Cathedral grounds. Few, not even her family, mourn her. And a man has gone missing. His wife, colleagues and neighbours fear for the safety of this perfect gentleman.

A witness comes forward to say the cases are linked. A breakthrough, perhaps? But the witness has form for finding dead bodies and she knows things about Steph that the detective wants kept hidden. A reliable witness? Or a fantasist with the power to cause chaos in Steph’s personal life?

What could possibly connect the murder of an unpopular woman and the disappearance of a charming man?

Her Charming Man is the second book in the Gloucestershire Crime Series, featuring DI Steph Lewis, a spirited, no-nonsense detective with secrets of her own.

What did I think?

WOW!  Rachel Sargeant gives Agatha Christie a run for her money in the second book of The Gloucestershire Crime Series: Her Charming Man.  I thought the first book, Her Deadly Friend, was brilliant but this one is EVEN BETTER.

What is the link between a murdered journalist and a missing man?  That's what DI Steph Lewis is tasked with finding out.  Steph and her team have enough on their plate investigating a murder without being distracted by a missing persons case...but what if they need to crack one case to solve the other?

Her Charming Man is a real head scratcher as I tried to work out who could have killed Sonia Hanson and whatever happened to Gerald Gittins-Gold.  I really shouldn't have bothered overworking my brain as I would have never worked it out in a million years!  Bravo, Rachel Sargeant!  

Fast-paced, flawless and unputdownable, Her Charming Man is one of those books that other crime authors will wish they had written.  I'm not sure how Rachel Sargeant will follow such an outstanding book but I can't wait to find out.  Unmissable and very highly recommended.

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