Présentation de l'éditeur

A missing baby. A murdered girl. A case where everyone has something to hide...

On the first day of her new job in the West Country, Detective Sergeant Kate Redman finds herself investigating the kidnapping of Charlie Fullman, the newborn son of a wealthy entrepreneur and his trophy wife. It seems a straightforward case... but as Kate and her fellow officer Mark Olbeck delve deeper, they uncover murky secrets and multiple motives for the crime.

Kate finds the case bringing up painful memories of her own past secrets. As she confronts the truth about herself, her increasing emotional instability threatens both her hard-won career success and the possibility that they will ever find Charlie Fullman alive...

Hushabye (A Kate Redman mystery) is the new novel from crime writer Celina Grace, author of Lost Girls and The House on Fever Street.

Biographie de l'auteur

Celina Grace was born sometime towards the end of the last century and wrote her first story, The Blue Ruby, at the age of seven. Although this early masterpiece was inexplicably ignored by the literary establishment, Celina persevered with her craft and a mere thirty years later, has published psychological thrillers The House on Fever Street Lost Girls and a collection of short stories. She is also the author of The Kate Redman Mysteries and The Asharton Manor Mysteries. She lives in Bath with her husband and sons.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Could have been a good book 23 février 2014
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
It has a good storyline, but it is buried in too much "family life" details. It does address two social issues, possibly a bit over done: abandoned kids and Gays. If bad punctuation doesn't bother you, then have a go at reading it.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Mystery That Delivers 6 avril 2013
Par Ken Brimhall - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
At last, a mystery that delivers and doesn't creep you out. I've had my fill of crucifixions, mutilations and acid baths, all graphically described. Must dead body be pilled on dead body (a minimum of six) to have a mystery? Of course not, and Hushabye is proof. Someone murders the nanny and kidnaps Charley, a three-month-old baby. Detective Sergeant Kate Redman (a newbie) is assigned to the case, a puzzling one indeed, for no ransom note is forthcoming. Everyone is a suspect. The person I felt responsible turned out to be a victim. The mystery is there, for any amateur sleuth to decipher. But there's more. There's Kate's story. She has a life, although not a particularly pleasant one. She has a mum who drinks too much and a past she wants to forget.

The writing is straight-forward and concise, as a detective novel should be. The author doesn't shy away from the occasional four-letter word. Her feminine side comes through in phrases like, "There was something slightly unsettling about her expression, something slightly too much of the cat that got the cream." I found this novel superb because I got all I needed to know and none of what I didn't.

This book was a very good mystery. No blood, no gore, just a good old fashioned mystery. Solid police work with a touch of woman's intuition. Kate Redman is a very likable character.I read this book in one sitting and did not guess whodunit until the end.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Murder, Intrigue, Human Frailties, Real People 3 janvier 2014
Par Dorothy - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
My title says pretty much how I feel about this book. The author has done an extremely good job in bringing true life to her characters. In other words, her characters could be anyone we know in real life. Some authors show their characters as living the perfect life with the perfect mate, with the perfect house and the perfect kids... you get the idea. Other authors don't give their characters a humanity. Celina Grace does and it pays off in the depth of her story.

DS Kate Redman is new and finds herself investigating a kidnapping of the son of a wealthy man and his eye candy wife. Charlie Fullman is only 3 months when he is kidnapped. his aloof father barely reacts. his mother falls to pieces. As Kate and her fellow officer Mark Olbeck work the case, the amounts of secrets, lies, and emotional difficulties they uncover in their investigation will boggle your mind.

The story is well written, true to life, and spell binding. The story is easy to follow and understand. The characters are just so well written it is amazing. The characters have many twists and turns in their emotional baggage. Kate and her partner work hard to get to find Charlie. Kate does some curing of her own emotional things as she works.

For those who hate sex scenes in their stories, there are none. For those who love to delve into the inner working of the human mind and the emotions people carry, boy is this the book for you.

Enjoy!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 No Families Are Perfect 1 juin 2013

I enjoyed the two detectives work as they got to know the family. and relationships to the kidnapped child. The nature of the case was disturbing to Kate Redman and it brought too much of her own past into her thinking about the crimes themselves even against her better judgement. She found herself moved toward quick judgements based on her own life and then she learns how to work this through and find the child.

I found her a sympathetic character and the plot well driven.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Just O.K. Really worth 2.5 stars in MHO 2 juin 2013
Par Parker Pen - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Kate Redman's first case on her new job is the kidnapping of a baby from a wealthy entrepreneur and his wife. This was a rather bland read for me. All the characters are well done and stay true to themselves, but I found them to be lackluster, except perhaps for Kate's partner. I was able to figure out "who dunnit" too early for my liking, which is always a let down for me in a mystery. I only gave this a 2.5 rating because I didn't find this to be an exciting mystery. I thought Kate was a rather bland personality; she didn't have that spark that I look for in a main character. I realize that she had a lot of emotions to work through, but that isn't the spark of personality that I look for in a lead character. The story just didn't have that something that separates the really good mystery from the everyday. The .5 star was given because I was able to read it all the way through without skimming. I'm not real sure I would read more from this author, frankly. This is just my opinion, mind you. Others found it worth 5 stars...I found it to be just OK.
