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