"slithering around over "around over the corner You will definitely want to look under your "bed before you try to go to sleep after reading this one A "before you try to go to sleep after reading this one A enjoyable murder mystery 45 starsClara is a wildlife vet who has hidden herself away in a rural village in England and avoids people as much as possible This is because she is scarred on one side of her face and is sick of people staring udging and being horrible to herStrange things start happening in her village and people are dying which forces Clara to confront her fears and her foesThis book is not without it flaws a bit rambling in places and somewhat far fetched but I really enjoyed it and the narrator was very good I liked Clara even though she could be very trying at timesWarning do not read this if you don t like snakescreepy Another excellent novel by SJ Bolton Some other reviews of this book find this novel a little slow paced but I really enjoyed it I do enjoy fast paced novels but when a book is written so well I am also happy to take my time and enjoy it with no longing for it to finish In this novel a vet named Clara Benning who was disfigured as a child and has become a bit of a reclusive due to her disfigurement The small town where she lives starts experiencing strange happenings with snakes invading the homes of many residents Clare is called on to help where people have been attacked and ALSO TO CAPTURE THE LOOSE SNAKES WHEN PEOPLE START to capture the loose snakes When people start die the investigation turns to a murder huntThis is a well written novel that perhaps could do with a good edit but I was completely ok with it Full of good characters and dialogue although maybe my one criticism is it does lack a touch of realism in places But don t let that stop you from enjoying a very good fictional read I really should read of this authors work.
