Reviews for Bones in the Nest

“Cadbury has great economy of style, not just in terms of prose but in a terrifically tight structure to the narrative which makes for an effective page-turner as well as and engaging story. I hope there’s more of Sean Denton to come.”  Killing Time Crime

“Helen Cadbury brought us Sean Denton, a young PCSO with a huge future ahead of him. It is lovely to see him back, in this second novel in the series…  …This is fabulous Yorkshire crime, told through the eyes of Sean in Doncaster, and Chloe in York. We get a really gritty story, that feeds into contemporary issues of race, immigration and changing working class communities.”    Northern Crime

“Cadbury writes with her finger on the pulse and the gripping story races by. This is a genuine page turner of a novel and the tensions on the estate, as emotions run high, are felt on every page. A lesser writer wouldn’t have tackled such a sensitive subject for their second novel but Cadbury isn’t a lesser writer. She has the talent and ability to challenge any seasoned professional on the crime writing scene. That is what makes this a standout novel and a series of originality. I look forward to more Sean Denton novels.”   Crime Squad

“…these books strike a really good balance between the personal stories of the characters and the puzzle of the crime fiction elements. I do really like Sean’s character – he is a breath of fresh air compared to the more familiar grouchy old alcoholic detectives and feisty career-minded female counterparts who are more common in crime fiction.”  Novel Heights

“Bones In The Nest by Helen Cadbury is a must buy must read… …I was hooked into this story, as a young girl, Chloe, who has been released from prison, is trying to make a new life for herself, only to find that someone is out to get her and destroy her life. The added bonus to this story is the stunning, gritty, contemporary police procedural set in Doncaster, perfect for fans of ITV’s acclaimed Line of Duty.”      ireadnovels
