    I won this book through Goodreads First Reads.The plot of the story was good, nothing you ve never read before, but it was executed poorly, and it was missing so many details Annie Butler goes missing there is no physical description in the book but apparently Mrs Butler is extremely attractive, and not at all like the matronly woman described in the story who seems a bit overprotective All the reader learns is that Annie s father is a perverted demon As a matter of fact, the characters ar I won this book through Goodreads First Reads.The plot of the story was good, nothing you ve never read before, but it was executed poorly, and it was missing so many details Annie Butler goes missing there is no physical description in the book but apparently Mrs Butler is extremely attractive, and not at all like the matronly woman described in the story who seems a bit overprotective All the reader learns is that Annie s father is a perverted demon As a matter of fact, the characters aren t very developed either they have no essence I didn t feel bad for Annie because I read about her for a page or two and then poof The reader gets a brief, very brief, summary of why Annie and her mother moved to Cornwall, but they ve managed to live in peace their for past ten years..until Now this is where the story gets boring and drags on Reading about Charles Darrin at first piqued my curiosity, but then he became annoying and I wanted to figure out what was going on The author focused too much on what the detectives were doing, which isn t interesting at all, instead of building the plot I don t care about detectives, I want to know about the crazy person on the loose The book went from zero action to way too much action In three sentences, after suffering through the rest of the book, Detective Inspector Jon Graham manages to find something on a VHS tape that no one else could have found, and recognized a distorted profile This why the end seems like it was thrown together, because the perpetrator has been a citizen there, but he suddenly has mommy issues and flips out The illness he suffered from was not explained in detail at all, and it should have been that would have created some interest After realizing who committed these crimes the book started dragging again until the end The interesting part of the book was the knowledge about herbs, especially deadly thyme

    I enjoy reading mysteries, but I don t do scary at all And let me warn you, this book is chilling It s not my kind of book at all at all.It is a testament to the quality of Nolen s writing that not only did I finish it, once started, I couldn t not finish it, no matter how horrific it became I do admit to taking breaks from it to calm down One quiet Sunday morning in a village in Cornwall, a ten year old girl, Annie Butler, is abducted Her kidnapper, Charles, is serial killer who believes t I enjoy reading mysteries, but I don t do scary at all And let me warn you, this book is chilling It s not my kind of book at all at all.It is a testament to the quality of Nolen s writing that not only did I finish it, once started, I couldn t not finish it, no matter how horrific it became I do admit to taking breaks from it to calm down One quiet Sunday morning in a village in Cornwall, a ten year old girl, Annie Butler, is abducted Her kidnapper, Charles, is serial killer who believes that drinking young girls blood will make him young again That premise alone makes the hair on the back of my neck stand up Yet it gets worse Nolan s omniscient narrator takes us inside the heads of the main characters It s this that makes it disturbing The narrative weaves its way into the impossible logic of the psychotic Charles, then wends it s way through imprisoned Annie s terror, stays a while with her mother Ruth s frantic panic, and on to DI Jon Graham s desperate sleuthing to find Annie before it is too late Round and about, each glimpse inside the individual characters realities ratchets the tension and suspense up I won t spoil this for you, but I admit that this is one of those books where midway through, I had to read enough of the end so that I could go back and finish the book without suffering from apoplexy If you are a reader of thrillers, then this book is for you The plot is riveting The characters are fully developed This book puts the reader on the Cornish coast, enmeshed in village life and inside the heads of its inhabitants It isn t for my elementary school readers, so I ll send my hard copy of the book to our feeder high school I hope The Dry, the other of Nolan s books I have, is less traumatic This review is from my blog at dickenslibrary blogspot.com

    Deadly Thyme is a mystery set in a quaint Britain village that follows the investigation into the abduction and imprisonment of a ten year old girl.Although the first few pages of the novel disclose why the girl was taken and where she is, this did not deflect from the mystery because the antagonist s true name is not revealed You are kept guessing who it might be, and there are a number of suspects woven into the plot.Nolan managed the multiple point of views well, allowing the reader a peek i Deadly Thyme is a mystery set in a quaint Britain village that follows the investigation into the abduction and imprisonment of a ten year old girl.Although the first few pages of the novel disclose why the girl was taken and where she is, this did not deflect from the mystery because the antagonist s true name is not revealed You are kept guessing who it might be, and there are a number of suspects woven into the plot.Nolan managed the multiple point of views well, allowing the reader a peek into key characters perspectives by clearly illustrating their unique thought patterns She managed to show the antagonist without giving enough clues to easily surmise the identity However, there were two short passages where the story switched to omniscient narrator, which felt a bit disjointed Nevertheless, the characters were all described very well unique quirks and all Spots of humour brought interesting insights into each character s personality, effectively creating a diverse cast I found some of the dialogue stiff in places, felt like overkill to include British slang and regional dialect, but the descriptions of the settings were imaginative and well researched.I would recommend this novel to mystery buffs and would read another book by this author

    I received a free, signed copy of this book via the Goodreads First Reads program and would like to thank the author and everyone else who made that possible This started out as a 3 star book for me but evolved into a solid 4 stars by the end The book really picked up about halfway in and the mystery suspense was great At the beginning I felt like the killer s issues were a bit overdone but towards the end I felt like it all came together well I kept jumping from 3 4 suspects right up until t I received a free, signed copy of this book via the Goodreads First Reads program and would like to thank the author and everyone else who made that possible This started out as a 3 star book for me but evolved into a solid 4 stars by the end The book really picked up about halfway in and the mystery suspense was great At the beginning I felt like the killer s issues were a bit overdone but towards the end I felt like it all came together well I kept jumping from 3 4 suspects right up until the end and the killer ended up being one of the suspects that was high on my list but the mystery was well done and doubts were planted about a lot of the main characters I loved the herb element in the book and how the killer used different herbs to symbolize things.I thought that the book could have used a touchediting there were some minor typos, some clunky sentences and a few paragraphs throughout the book that didn t seem to fit or make sense but nothing that majorly impacted my enjoyment of the book Overall this was a great mystery and I enjoyed the ride

    Deadly Thyme is a strong thriller, filled with a good cast of characters With any murder mystery, there is required a higher character number than other genres, because the reader needs to figure out who did it The characters were defined, individual, and I had no problem remembering who was who I came close to figuring out the identity of the killer, but was led down another twist, and began to doubt my suspicions Although we know him as Charles, we have little to go on other than that he Deadly Thyme is a strong thriller, filled with a good cast of characters With any murder mystery, there is required a higher character number than other genres, because the reader needs to figure out who did it The characters were defined, individual, and I had no problem remembering who was who I came close to figuring out the identity of the killer, but was led down another twist, and began to doubt my suspicions Although we know him as Charles, we have little to go on other than that he is a mentally disturbed individual, driven by hatred towards his mother Deadly Thyme is set in a rural Cornish village, with beautiful scenery The story begins with the abduction of Annie Butler, daughter of Ruth, a Texas woman, hiding out in Perrins Point Ruth is trying to leave the past behind her, unfortunately, Charles, a man haunted by his past, sees in Ruth the reflection of his mother When he abducts her daughter, Ruth is thrown into a nightmare.This is a well written, often tense story
