Broadlands is the first book I have read by David Blake. I thoroughly enjoyed it and have already bought the next 3 books in the series. The story flowed and kept me engrossed. I liked the characters and think they will become like friends. ( )

I enjoyed David Blake's writing and got through this book a lot faster than I thought I would. It was easy to get into and I found myself turning page after page without realizing just how far into it I'd gotten. The story flowed well, with a few twists and turns that I did not see coming (which is always going to be a good thing.).
Broadland is slated as the first of a series of books, and as such it includes more scene setting and character backstory than some people would like. Personally I see it as laying a foundation to be built upon and didn't mind it at all and am looking forward to reading the next in the series.

*Thank you to netgalley for this book in exchange for an honest review ( )

Whilst this book has many of the standard police elements, policeman moves from London to a rural force creating resentment amongst some colleagues, it is done with humour and original settings on the Norfolk Broads. The location offers interesting and unusual opportunities for crime scenes which the author exploits well with his evident local knowledge of the geography. Cleverly established and unusual plot and light on detailed police procedure. This is a promising series featuring DI Tanner. ( )

Broadland by David Blake
D.I. Tanner #1

The introduction was strong with and drew me in with a woman hurrying home down a dark towpath only to...and then we move to the introduction of Detective Inspector John Tanner. He has just moved from the city, is living on a friend’s boat and has some trauma behind him to overcome when he lands on the scene. His superior does NOT seem to be a nice guy and is rather abrupt and caustic when he first speaks with Tanner. One of Tanner’s colleagues, Burgess, is not happy to have a new man on the team as he had high hopes of being top detective next. And, DC Jenny Evans, his sidekick for the book, is new on the job after a few years working in another arm of law enforcement. His assignment to a missing person’s case is a demotion of sorts but he gives it his all and proves wiser than most of the local constabulary who continue to remain rather cold with him. Jenny, on the other hand, is rather flirtatious and overly warm in her interactions with Tanner.

This book left me feeling ho-hum-ish. I felt there was a lot of describing and not much action at first then toward the end of the story the action picked up with some twists and turns and unexpected events taking place that eventually tied all the various cases up in a bow. I didn’t feel I got to know any of the characters very well, didn’t understand the interactions between John and Jenny finding them rather inappropriate for strangers working together on a case and ultimately came away feeling the story a bit unbelievable. I am on the fence as to whether or not I want to read more in this series. I might to see if future stories have more “meat” to them or I might not bother depending on what I have to read at that time.

Thank you to NetGalley and Black Oak Publishing for the ARC – This is my honest review.
