Book Review

Red House – Joss Stirling

I am returning to Oxford today as I review Red House, the third book in the fab Jess Bridges series by Joss Stirling. As always, many thanks to Joss and One More Chapter for providing me with a copy of the book, which I received via NetGalley.

BLURB:

The compelling new mystery featuring Bridges and George has them taking on a haunting new case that will leave them doubting their judgement, and even their own eyes and ears …

REVIEW:

My three day Joss Stirling review bonanza ends today with Red House, the third book in the Jess Bridges series. Now, the blurb for this one doesn’t give much away, so I went into it knowing that I loved the character, but without much clue as to what they were getting themselves into this time. I was particularly interested to see how Jess and Leo’s paths would cross, and luckily I didn’t have to wait to find out.

Red House finds Jess house-sitting in, you’ve guessed it, a mysterious red house. I must confess that Joss Stirling’s descriptions of this house made it sound far too creepy to be somewhere that I would willingly stay, but I am a huge Alice in Wonderland fan, so I would love to explore the garden attached to the house.

I think of the three Jess Bridges mysteries so far, Red House is my favourite, partly because of the completely baffling crimes that are uncovered, but mainly because this time around we find out more about the backgrounds of Jess, Michael and Leo, discovering more about each of their pasts. It felt like we were getting to them all more personally now that the previous books and thoroughly introduced them on a professional level, and I loved this.

I am so in love with this series, and I really hope we won’t have to wait too long for book four!
