Deep Fear by Rachel Lynch is book 2 in the DI Kelly Porter series and what a fantastic read it is!
Lots of words spring to mind but bloody brilliant comes first closely followed by thrilling, captivating and unputdownable (is that even a word!). This book is my first back reading after my corneal transplant so I was painfully slow at reading. My mind was telling me to read, read, read and my eyes were telling me to stop. Well I didn’t stop because quite honestly I couldn’t put it down.
I like Kelly because she is real, she has issues, a sister that she wants to beat the crap out of and a sick mother, but like a lot of us with issues she dusts herself off each morning and goes to work and does a bloody good job. There is nothing fake about this book it is down to earth and the characters are likable and the plot believable.
This is shaping up to be a really good series, I really can’t wait for the next book!
As you realise by now I don’t like giving away spoilers so I am not going to go in to the plot of the book but you can read a precis below from the publisher. I highly recommend this series and don’t hesitate in giving Deep Fear 5 stars, Rachel Lynch is on to a winner with this series.
