The Cuckoo Wood by M. Sean Coleman - Blog Blitz

The Cuckoo Wood
Samantha Jaynes took her life in the cold lake. Now Rosie Trimble has done the same. Both claimed they had seen an angel. And they're not the only ones.
A spate of teenage suicides rattles the rural community of Kirkdale, in England's Lake District. Before they died, each of the girls talked about seeing an angel. Is this collective hallucination, or is something more sinister leading these young girls to their deaths?
That’s a question for Dr Alex Ripley, the so-called Miracle Detective. Brought in to help the police, she finds a community rooted in fear and suspicion, bound by their strange faith, unwilling to help, unable to forgive.
Because the people of Kirkdale have buried their dark past once, and they’re not about to let Ripley dig it up again.
The Cuckoo Wood is the first Alex Ripley Mystery

Author Bio
Born in the UK and raised in South Africa, M. Sean Coleman developed a love for reading and writing novels in his early teens, thanks to two incredibly passionate English teachers who infected him with their love of words and stories. Over the intervening years, he has written film and television drama, cross-platform series, an interactive children’s storybook and a graphic novel series.
He finally found his niche as a thriller writer when he was asked to write a novel as part of the cross-platform project, Netwars. His first book, The Code, was published six months later, with the sequel, Down Time, hot on its heels. There was no going back.
He is obsessed with crime, mystery and thriller stories, especially those with a fresh or surprising angle. He writes novels from his home in The Cotswolds, where he lives with his husband and their three red dogs.

My Review
Dr Alex Ripley is determined to find out what is going on in the little village of Kirkdale. Helped by her friend, medical examiner Emma. Kirkdale is a strange village, full of obsessively devout residents who would rather write the girl's death's off as suicide, and them turning away from God, than admit there is anything more to it.
Alex doesn't believe this to be the case and won't rest until she has found out what is going on. I really enjoyed the character of Alex, she is determined and won't back down until she gets to the truth, Sometimes even finding herself in danger.
The Cuckoo Wood is a great, well written story, the descriptions of the village made me feel like I was actually there and could see it all. I was completely invested in the story and really wanted to find out what happened to the girls. This is my first time reading a book by M. Sean Coleman but it won't be my last. In fact I have the next part to read for that blog tour, I am looking forward to that!
