I've always loved a good mystery crime fiction and The Darkest Evening definitely delivered it. Although it's part of a series, the story itself was a standalone with many references to the past so no confusion here. I liked that it is as detailed as it can be but at times it did feel a little tiring having to follow up with so many casts and plots. Other than that, it was an awesome read till the end.

I have been kept guessing 'who did it?' and gotten it all wrong! With so many casts involved, it sure caused many confusions for me. At first, I thought it could be Karan or Harriet or Juliet. Then Mark or Josh. But in the end, it was the not so obvious choice! Oh well, it was a good one too which kept me engaged from the start until the end.

I honestly felt it could have been shorter as there were many fillers to me with thoughts from various casts pondering about the case or about each other. I know that makes the case more solid but it did feel a little too much at times.

All in all, it was a crime fiction that I've enjoyed. I was surprised at how realistic it was, such a believable story and well described that I can imagined it easily. With a little art and poem, the mystery became more artistically challenged LOL!

Driving home during a snow storm, DCI Vera Stanhope comes across an abandoned car with a toddler inside. Taking the child she drives to the nearest house which happens to belong to her relations where a dinner party is in progress. Not long after at the back of the house a body is discovered.
But what could the possible motive be, Stanhope and her team investigate.
An entertaining well-written modern crime story with its interesting cast of characters. A fine addition to the series.

On a snowy evening, Vera Stanhope finds an abandoned car with a baby inside it. She suspects the mother may have gone in search of help. She leaves a note on the dashboard along with her business card saying she took the baby. She realizes she's not far from the estate where distant family members lived and wondered if the mother may have gone there in search of help. As she is about to leave, a neighbor who went to pick up his daughters finds the body and alerts the household. Since Vera is present, she calls out her team and begins to investigate. Eventually another person goes missing. While I have not read all the books in the series, this one is my favorite of the ones read. I felt I got to know Vera and her team members Holly and Joe as well as most of the families and people linked together by the unfortunate circumstances. While I had my suspicions about the person who committed the deed, I had just enough doubt to keep it interesting to the end. ( )

It's a well-crafted police procedural murder mystery. High marks for plot, people and place. ( )

Well, this was a slow burn and a slower read for me. I enjoy detective novels as a whole, especially a good series. I have never read this well-established and highly-acclaimed author before, but I will definitely give her another try.

For some reason, the writing and the characters were not clicking with me. Storyline was good, but it was just such a long, boring read for me. Vera reminded me of Columbo, the trench coat wearing detective (from the 70’s detective TV series) who was sly as a fox but came across as bumbling. I couldn’t connect with Vera, and found it hard to believe her raising to the ranks she did. A lot of characters, but they were easily followed. I had many unanswered questions at the end.

Thanks to Ms. Cleeves, St. Martin’s Press/Minotaur Books and NetGalley for this ARC. Opinion is mine alone. ( )
