    Six stars Books 1 and 2 were easy 5 stars, but this one blew them out of the water. Superb development of many different characters. Love the way things are going with. .... The story was definitely unique, for me. At least in the fact that this was a detective novel about a missing child not a murder, although there are other tangents to follow. That ending, well just blows you away. I really hope there is a 4th book in a this series...soon.

    Disappointing, What a stupid ending to a good book. The child died, but no explanation, no finale. No one charged. so silly.

    I’ve read all 3 books and enjoyed them, good story line and character development. The whole point was to find the missing child alive, then the abrupt ending which spoiled everything. I was prepared to give 5 stars, but gave it 3 only because most of the book was excellent, until the end.

    Brilliant book...until the final 2 pages. A very unsatisfying, frustratingly abrupt, incomplete end!

    Another great read Sorry this is the last book in the series. This one was my favourite. The author can put so much into one book and never fails to surprise with the endings. The story's just seem to go along so smoothly which have you asking more questions about the mystery in the book. I cannot ever work out the cases this interesting detective tries to solve as they are so complex. Not one to give away spoilers suffice to say ending was expected in a way. Kudos to this author for an excellent Another great read Sorry this is the last book in the series. This one was my favourite.

    Well worth a read The author deals with a sensitive and disturbing story line very well. She moves the story along and a fair pace while highlighting the frustrations of the investigators in trying trying to unravel what had occurred and who is responsible .She also continues to show us a lot about the interplay and relationships that develop between the various main characters through the series. The book stands alone, but I think most who read it in that way will want to read the previous books Well worth a read The author deals with a sensitive and disturbing story line very well.

    When a small child goes missing from the home of a very dysfunctional single parent, the search is on. As Detective Winter Meadows gets involved, much more than he had hoped for is revealed, providing a twisty tale that's full of surprises - not all of them pleasant. The book is really well written and keeps the reader engaged. There's enough humour woven in to make a difficult subject a bit lighter too, and there's even a little romance in the air. A great read - highly recommended. When a small child goes missing from the home of a very dysfunctional single parent, the search is on.

    Enjoyed! All three books in series were great and had my attention throughout. Loved the descriptions of the areas along with the characters who became well known, given we all know people with similar personalities or who are in similar circumstances. The twists and turns during each investigation were interesting and at times surprising. I would recommend if looking for a relaxing read and nicely written story

    Excellent Welsh detective series I have enjoyed all three books in this series and look forward to more. The detective is a likeable character and others in the story are being fleshed out so you enjoy reading how their lives are progressing. The mysteries are well planned and usually have a twist near the end that reveals the murderer.

    This story was a total 5 star that made Alissa so very, very happy until literally the final few pages. I was very disappointed with a last minute event that was not only unnecessary but implausible. Ruined the final scene for me. But I will continue on because solid writing and great characters.

    Love DI Winter Meadows. Cheryl Rees-Price has some it again, another fantastic read. A book full of twists and turns. I am loving how we are getting to know the characters more and how the team are starting to bond and work together. Another brilliant story, can't wait for book 4. 😁😁😁😁 Love DI Winter Meadows.

    Sadly real feeling. Odd to say you love a book about missing children, but this one was so well written and, although the clues were there, difficult to figure out the kidnapper. A neglected child is abducted and a known drug user with several run- ins with the law becomes an obvious suspect. But what was the motive?

    Lies That Linger when Social Services fail because of case overloads someone has to be the unfortunate one put aside.Well meaning people are ensnared by those only interested in their own satisfaction. It intrigued me and it certainly had its twists and turns.Selfish people seem to win out again. you will be drawn into the madness.

    Interesting read This is a great police procedure book dealing with a missing child. Lots of twists and turns in the story. DI Winters is a dedicated detective who works tirelessly to find the answer. Definitely a book worth reading.

    Wonderful story with a poignant plot. A complex investigative team and a twisting storyline. Realistic characters who struggle with flaws and mistakes as they try to navigate what life throws at them. Interesting glimpses into Welsh village life and a trip to the Isle of Man.

    Amazing third book. Twists and turns galore. Characters that you come to care about and want to know more. This story is a tough one about child neglect and it’s consequences. Written with emotion and understanding of how these things can happen.

    I hated the ending. I was not happy with the ending. It was like a smack in the face. Would have been nice if there were some happiness in the end. This world is depressing enough as it is. I read to forget , not to be reminded of even more grief.

    Worth reading This series is new. It has characters that are so well fleshed out, it has serious possibilities. The mysteries are timely and quite frankly not dealt with enough. I hope the author is serious about this series, it could go far.

    What is the point? The incredibly abrupt ending is a bad call for the writer -and readers. There are also dangling threads of the plot scattered everywhere.
