I really love this new series, The Murder Notebooks, by Anne Cassidy. The first book in the series, Dead Time, was my first introduction to Anne Cassidy's novels, and I will certainly pick up her backlist on the strength of these two books. I really love the idea behind the books, but especially the characters.

The Murder Notebooks series is based around the disppearance of Rose and Joshua's parents many years ago. Both Rose's mum and Joshua's dad were police officers working cold cases and were all set to get married and make the four of them into a proper family. But one day, the two disappear, presumed dead and Rose and Joshua are shipped off to different areas of the country. Then Joshua gets in contact with Rose and together with Joshua's roommate, Skeggsy, they begin to piece together the events of many years ago and try to get to the bottom of the disappearance of their parents.

This series is really wonderfully done, with a fast pace, great characters, an exciting murder to solve and really tantalising clues about their parents and what they could have been up to. I was very, very excited to read the second book in the series, Killing Rachel, and as soon as the book arrived, I dove into it immediately. Rose and Joshua are really brilliant characters. I especially love Rose's confusion about her feelings for Joshua. They spent several years together as step-siblings but have spent the last 5 years away from each other. And while Rose still values Joshua as a missing family member, she's also feeling jealous over the time he spends with another girl and is beginning to realise that she doesn't see him quite as a brother any longer.

But really, this relationship between Rose and Joshua is quite a small but important storyline in something much bigger.

Excellent follow up to first in the Murder Notebooks series. A subsidiary mystery enclosed in the central and ongoing mystery set up in Book 1. Follows the successful pattern of TV series in having separate stories within an overarching theme.

This is the second book in the excellent Murder Notebooks series and I definitely urge readers to read "Dead Time" before this one. There are two reasons for this. Firstly it's really good read and secondly, you will know all about Rose and Joshua's situation and so you can get right into this new part of the story straight away. Rose and her almost-stepbrother, Joshua, have now learned that their parents are probably still alive and Joshua, in particular, is very keen to find out more, even though it is clearly going to be dangerous. Rose wants to tread more cautiously and anyway she has her mind on another problem regarding an old school friend who has died in mysterious circumstances and she would like to understand what happened. I have always loved Anne Cassidy's books for teenage readers. Her characters are well drawn and believable, the plots are imaginative and satisfying and her books are deservedly very popular in the school library.

I have eagerly awaited this novel. It's fantastic how everything is being pieced together. I don't know how I'm going to be able to wait for the third novel in the series! Please let us know when it will be published. Also, will Josh and Rose get together?

I'm a bit disappointed by Killing Rachel. I really enjoyed Dead Time, the previous book in this series, and was interested in knowing how Joshua and Rose's search for their parents progressed. Sadly, while some new facts are uncovered in this book, there's too much focus on the much less interesting mystery of how Rose's old frienemy, Rachel Bliss, died. While Rachel was a fairly interesting character, I didn't care how she died - and I found the final resolution rather tame. The mystery felt incidental and a bit tedious when I was far more interested in the greater mystery of where Rose and Joshua's parents are. I'd prefer the books concentrated solely on that than having Rose and Joshua happen to solve another mystery on the side per book (suspends belief a little - what are the chances that they keep happening upon other mysteries).

Having said all this, I enjoyed the book overall, though I felt Dead Time was superior. Rose is an interesting character though Joshua is less well developed, and I certainly wouldn't avoid reading the next book based on my slight disappointment with this one.

I initially found this an awkward book to get into. Viewed through a whole series of flash backs and recollections, this story unfolds at a leisurely pace, slowly pealing way many layers to reveal a more complicated underlying truth. It is really 2 stores unfurling together – while one reaches a conclusion the other is left hanging as the novel ends…

Yes, that left me eager to read the next instalment, just as it should have.

This is the very exciting sequel to "Dead Time" and I would recommend it to anyone in the need to buy a sour teenager something exciting (although start with the first book, they have to be read in order)
