She was used to the helter-skelter world of Manchester, but when she received a promotion and her husband desired to get away to the country, DS Julie Kite was determined that she would make a go of it, for herself as well as her marriage.

Jan Newton’s REMEMBER NO MORE brings a big town cop, used to the big town crimes into a world where small town minds and petty crimes are the norm until a case the small town boys are not equipped to handle gives Julie a chance to shine and prove her worth as a

Let me start by saying that I really enjoyed this book! My first book by Jan Newton and it definitely won't be my last. DS Julie Kite up sticks and moves to rural Wales under the guise of a promotion but more than likely to try to keep her husband under control and stop him from straying once again. Its clear from the beginning that Julie isn't keen on the move but is keen to try to save her marriage. A strong and intelligent woman, this is her only weakness.

On her first day Julie must deal wit

Detective Sergeant Julie Kite has upped sticks from Manchester to rural Mid Wales, her transfer determined by her husband Adam accepting a post in a local school, teaching history. Not unexpectedly, she's already conflicted about the prospect, not least because Adam has strayed down the path of dalliance in the recent past.

And on her first day in her new job she finds she's landed slap bang in the middle of a murder investigation.

The cover strapline to Remember No More is 'Bad blood runs in fami

An enjoyable read with a good story line. Grew up in the area where it all took place which felt quite strange. Hopefully we will meet Sgt. Kite again in the future.

Julie Kite, newly promoted to Detective Sergeant, is leaving the Manchester Metropolitan Police force and the inner city life she’s used to, for rural Wales. Her husband, Adam, has a new teaching post in mid Wales and this is an opportunity for a fresh start for them both, and a last ditch attempt to save their marriage. Julie isn’t looking forward to the move but realises there’s too much temptation in the city.

Julie has no time to dwell on her misgivings. Her first day at Builth Wells police s

I confess, I was initially drawn to Remember No More in part because of the synopsis, and in part due to the fact that I spent nearly four years in this part of Wales. Jan Newton does not disappoint with her writing nor with the stunningly depicted setting. This the perfect book to get lost in on a quiet Sunday afternoon, and I confess I devoured it in one sitting.

Newton's debut novel is well crafted with a tightly knit story that twists and turns. While I thought I might have figured out "whodu

I'm not overly fond of police procedurals, but this book entertained me from beginning to end. I love the warm, engaging characters such as DS Julie Kite and her boss, Swift. The narrative is seamless and moves at a good pace. I loved the references to Manchester and the way the author contrasted life in the big city with life in rural Wales. Very well written and researched.

Landing a murder case on her first day in the new job she soon digs up some history and as an 'outsider' discovers the ways of the locals.

I really enjoyed reading this book.
