The Sgt. Windflower Mystery series is a series of cozy mysteries set in the small Newfoundland town of Grand Bank where Sgt. Winston Windflower is the top cop in the RCMP detachment there. The latest instalment in the series, A Tangled Web (2017, Baico Publishing), has just been released.

It begins innocuously enough:

“Life doesn’t get much better than this,” said Winston Windflower. The Mountie looked over at his collie, Lady, who wagged her tail at the sound of his voice. If dogs could smile, sh

I would like to thank Netgalley and for a review copy of A Tangled Web, a police procedural set in Newfoundland featuring RCMP Sergeant Winston Windflower.

Windflower jumps into action when Molly Quinlan reports her five year old daughter, Sarah, missing. He organises searches and issues an amber alert but as time goes on and they don't find her he has to assume that she has been taken. From this simple beginning Mr Martin spins the eponymous tangled web with some very unexpected twi

This is the best Windflower mystery so far. One of those books where you think it's about wrapped up halfway through and then it does become a tangled web!

Really enjoyed this. I liked how all the threads on the web came together and we saw the whole picture at the end and not anytime sooner. This kept us on our toes but also interested in the story and what was going on.

This is my first time reading this series and I am now wanting to go back and read the five before this. The story has several mysteries occuring that are all tied together in one fashion or another. What starts the book is a little girl missing and this blows into so much more. We

A Tangled Web is another well-written mystery with a cozy touch and down-home feel of Newfoundland. Mike Martin has created, once again, an interesting storyline with well-developed characters some of which are in the whole series. The dialogue has an easy flow to it while the story includes twists and turns with side stories going on.

Being from Newfoundland previously, the author provides a tangible feel of the area, for the reader, of the weather conditions, food and dialect. The author descr

This is a good mystery. I like the main character Sgt. Windflower. He is different in that he has dreams that help him figure out some things. But he also is an efficient detective and good in leading and showing character in what he does. I enjoyed the story as it unfolded, and it's sweet that his wife is pregnant. There were some suspenseful moments when people are murdered and some shot, but the best was when the little girl was kidnapped and all of that was going on. It makes for a interesti ...more

A good mystery with a solid plot and pinch of paranormal.
I liked the description of the policing work as well as the paranormal side with the prophetic dreams and the ancient ways learned by family.
Recommended for those who love a good solid thriller.

This book is interesting and kept me reading from start to finish. I would like to read the other books in this series. I have not read this author before but I will be looking for more of his books. There were interesting characters and a good blend of mystery and thrilling details throughout the pages. It was also interesting to see everything play out and the details come together. There is a touch of paranormal within the pages as well. I enjoyed reading A Tangled Web and would recommend it ...more

Sgt. Windflower in Grand Bank, Newfoundland day does not start well when a 6 year girl is reported missing, meanwhile a man is murdered at a restuarant in Goobies, not too far away. But more is happening in Grand Bank.
A pleasant mystery, interesting enough for me to read to the end but I am not sure whether I want to go back and start the series.

A little girl out to play wanders away from her home and into the back of a truck driven by a man on the run from a murder charge – the murder of a man with a lot of connections, connections that would make anyone want to run. Sgt. Winston Windflower, Cree Mountie in Grandbank, Newfoundland, catches the lost girl call when it comes into the station, not knowing the outcome will have life-changing implications for everyone involved.

This series has much to recommend it. The plots are always topica

I liked this book a lot. Thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for a copy to review.

Author Mike Martin has assembled a cast of interesting characters, put them in a remote Newfoundland village, and presented them with a fair measure criminal and meteorological activity to deal with. There's a child abduction, a cold-blooded murder, domestic violence and a theft ring, The action is non-stop, right up to the satisfying conclusion, when all the loose ends are tied up.

This is a good story with a lot going on. I love how competent Windflower is in his investigations. He may not feel like he is making progress but he pushes forward anyway, determined. I enjoyed how realistic the story was to the setting as well. Windflower jumped in with both feet to find a missing child, but that isn't the only thing on his plate.

This is apparently several into a series but I didn't find it difficult to pick up and read in the least. There is quite a bit going on, stories affe

This is the sixth book in the Sgt Windflower series, set in Newfoundland.

At the end of the last book Winston married Sheila and this book continues on with their life in Grand Bank.  The story starts out with a little girl going missing.  She was a curious little girl and ended up exploring inside a transport truck, which closed up and started its journey without realizing it had precious cargo inside.  The RCMP are called in to investigate the disappearance.  Things quickly turn worse ... a mur

In the sixth book in the Sgt. Windflower Mystery series, a little girl disappears in Grand Bank, Newfoundland, and supplies go missing in a local solar panel factory. It is up to the RCMP officer to solve the cases, while at the same time dealing with dissent in his detachment and figuring out new developments in his personal life. “A Tangled Web” is actually my favourite book of the series, maybe because I have a daughter myself, and I felt sad for the mother of the missing girl. I also enjoyed ...more

Settling down with a Sgt. Windflower mystery is like pulling on your favourite cosy pyjamas and fluffy slippers. The kind-hearted Mountie is always in the midst of the action but his stable homelife with wife and mum-to-be Sheila, his love of good food, fine scotch and quoting Shakespeare that he shares with his friends and the sedate pace of life in Newfoundland always keep him (and through him, his readers) in a bubble of serenity and well-being.

This is a new series for me. I could tell I was missing some back story by starting with #6, but it didn’t seem to matter. It is a light mystery. It could have used some closer editing but was enjoyable nonetheless. The location and characters make this series special. Thanks to NetGalley for the ARC.

Murder, the Mafia, a missing girl ... sounds promising, right?
