First of all I have to say what a brilliant book cover and title they really do jump out at me. I couldn’t wait to get my hands on Journey To Death and to be honest I am not sure what I was expecting with this new series after reading Leigh’s Geraldine Steel and Ian Peterson. But Leigh never fails to disappoint and I really enjoyed this book.
The Prologue starts off in 1977 where we are introduced to George Hall who is working in the Seychelles and falls in love with Veronique. But then George leaves and never speaks to her again. 30 years later George his wife Angela and Lucy go on holiday to the Seychelles where lucy wants to leave her worries at home after a breakup with her fiance. But A deadly secret lurks in the island’s history, buried deep but not forgotten. And it is about to come to light.
I have to say the stunning description of the Seychelles is absolutely beautiful I felt like I was there with Lucy. Leigh Russell has definitely done her research. I really liked the characters and I found this a refreshing easy read after reading it in one afternoon I couldn’t put down. I would say this is an adventure mystery with a twist.
I am giving this 4 stars which I highly recommend. Thank you to Netgalley and Thomas & Mercer for a ACR copy in exchange for an honest review.
