This is now one of my favourite five star reads of the last 12 months and I have read and reviewed 500 books over that period (I checked my stats).

Well! Obviously I have been hiding under a rock somewhere by not discovering Caroline Mitchell sooner. Of course silly me checked my *ahem* very full Kindle to realise I actually had her first book in this series but hey, this novel read brilliantly without knowing the background from the first novel. So it's all good.

Oh my giddy aunt! You wouldn't want to meet Bert Bishop on a dark night, ( nor even on a sunny day for that matter )! When he offers to give a tarot card reading, it soon becomes clear that there isn't going to be a rosy ending. This crime thriller is a little different to the norm in that it incorporates a supernatural element. It was highly captivating, a real spine tingler, and I'll never see a raven in the same light again. There was also a nice twist at the end. Highly recommended.

From the first few sentences of Time To Die by Caroline Mitchell I was hooked. This was the first book I have read of Mitchell's but it certainly won't be the last!

The full title is Time to Die: A gripping serial killer thriller-with a twist. It is not an understatement to call it gripping and there are twists left,right and centre with a huge twist towards the end. It is that and more.

It is not your run of the mill police procedural crime book. There is none of the usual washed out or alcoholi
Many thanks to the author, Caroline Mitchell, the publisher, Bookouture and Netgalley for allowing me to read this excellent novel “Time To Die” by Caroline Mitchell, the follow up book to her debut novel, “Don’t Turn Around”.

I had hoped this book would be better than the first one, and in the beginning, it actually looked like it would with a tarot reading man called the Raven whose predictions about deaths seems to come true. But after a while, I just felt that the story started to drag.

The chapters shift between Jennifer Knight and Bert, the tarot man and it worked OK in the beginning but somewhere along the way I just got tired of the alternation. Could be because I found the story just dull and I wanted it to wr

Well written police story with a supernatural element that I found pleasantly appealing. While not my typical genre, the paranormal scenes added a creepiness to the story that kept me completely engrossed to the end.
The characters had depth, the story flowed at an even pace and there was a nice twist at the end to make this one enjoyable read.

I was introduced to this author when I read the first book in this series 'Don't turn around' and was extremely impressed so it was an easy choice to read this novel once offered me.
The novel features Detective Jennifer Knight who is in search of a serial killer who gives Tarot card readings to his victims and is known as 'The Raven'. But everything is not as it initially appears and the book is full of suspense and surprises. The addition of a touch of psychic abilities give this series a refre

You would not wish to meet Bertram Bishop and have him offer to predict your future. Those who do are most unfortunate, as once the tarot cards are turned over there is no going back. Bertram oozes evil from his very pores and takes great pride in all that he does. Once the prediction is made it is not the joyful future most want to hear; only death within hours of the last card being turned over. But Bertram’s main prize and conquest is Detective Jennifer Knight, who is currently investigating ...more

I absolutely Loved this book from start to finish. I am a slow reader yet found myself anxious to get back to this book to just get onto the next chapter. The story had me captivated from the very first page and didn't let me go until the end. DC Jennifer Knight is a character that I could read about forever. I really enjoyed her character development in this second novel and seeing a different side of her through her new relationship.

I’m still on my catch up reads in and in between other books I’m reading or listening to.

This was a spine chilling, atmospheric, “hairs on the back of your neck stand up” kind of read.

It has some supernatural feel to this that leaves you shivering all over from your head to your toes in a real “gotta keep reading” sort of way.

I’m onto book 3!

Time To Die is my fourth read for Bookouture Thriller Week, which ends today! I've already read and loved Caroline's first DC Jennifer Knight book Don't Turn Around, my review of which you can read here!

About the book:

Second in the paranormal series featuring English Detective Constable Jennifer Knight as a sort of psychic detective. A member of the detachment known as Operation Moonlight, Jennifer's gifts are put on the line, and in danger, while simultaneously tensions among her immediate family are exploding. The villain here is one of the oldest I've ever encountered, and he kills by proxy, both factors adding to the intrigue. Additionally, the paranormal levels are

First and foremost I would like to thank Bookouture/Netgalley for giving me the opportunity to read this book in exchange for an honest review.

I thought I would do my review with a slight twist (keep reading and you will see what I mean) — in keeping with the spirit/plot of this book — so bear with me.

I really enjoyed this book by Caroline Mitchell. I read the first book in the series: Don’t Turn Around and felt that the mash up of police procedural/thriller/crime

The Queen of Darkness is back, and she's back with a vengeance.

Caroline Mitchell's debut thriller 'Don't Turn Around' was a cracking, nail-biting supernatural thriller of which I still recall many details, but in my opinion with 'Time to Die' this author has truly surpassed herself and my expectations.

Time to Die is a detective story with a paranormal aspect to it.

Frank was my favourite character in Don’t Turn Around. I was fascinated by him. So I was curious what intriguing character may feature in Time to Die. Needless to say, I was really pleased when I started to read about Bert, as he helped to feed my curiosity in a similar way to Frank in the previous novel.

Time To Die is a brilliant, creepy and gripping read that touches on the paranormal but is easy to accept and thoroughly entertaining.

Bert and his Tarot readings are the main topic of the latest offering by the fantastic Caroline Mitchell.

We meet again DC Jennifer Knight and her sidekick Will. The sexual chemistry between these two characters is electric and the intense relationship does not disappoint the reader.

Time To Die is akin to Hitchcocks Psycho meets (Edgar Allan) Poe, and is gripping from page 1. Bert is The Raven, he knows things about people, and once these people have met him, their deaths are imminent and bloody.

This is the first novel I have read by author Caroline Mitchell, and overall I was very impressed. This is a stand-alone work, although it was preceded by DON"T TURN AROUND, also starring the character of DC Jennifer knight. Not having read that one yet, I can honestly say that I didn't feel any confusion--or that I was missing any vital information--whatsoever in TIME TO DIE.

The is one of the best crime novels I've read so far this year. This is the 2nd novel in the Detective Jennifer Knight series. I was a bit worried, as I've not read the first one but, I shouldn't have worried as it is a story in itself.

Detective Jennifer Knight starts investigating a serial killer called 'The Raven' who does Tarot readings to his victims. All his readings seem to come true or helped along... He always followed when he is acting out his crimes by Raven birds. This made the book f
This was a pretty good police story with a paranormal twist. I liked the leads and thought Ms. Mitchell did a good job with the eerie feeling with Bert and the ravens etc. The characters were fully developed and the backgrounds brought forth.

I think the main reason that the rating isn't higher, for me, is that I've read all the Kay Hooper Bishop Series books and this was just too similar to them. Could just be the wrong book at this time for me although it was pretty good.

The thing I enjoyed most about this book is that the identity of the killer is not hidden. This still made it all the more creepy and won me over. Very well written with a supernatural element added to the mix. I felt the use of tarot cards was quite clever and hope there will be future books along these lines by this author. This is worth the read if you love suspense filled novels.
