the plot is well drawn, and the book fairly pulls you in ... very impressed ... I can see that there will be more of DI Kelly -- Tuam Herald a readable and striking serving of crime fiction, where the investigation into a death uncovers a family overflowing with bitter secrets, lies and grudges. This is the third novel in the `Ellen Kelly' series, however as the story is as much about the suspects as it is the investigating team, you could read this as a standalone, though there is enough information to leave you wanting to hunt down the first two in the series ... Sheila Bugler allows, even encourages you to mistrust characters and she sent my thoughts scuttling one way and then another. All Things Nice is a dramatic family tale wrapped in a gritty police murder investigation, stop here if you like to solve the crime alongside the detectives -- lovereading.co.uk a strong procedural with strong characters ... resonate long after the book is put away -- Irish Examiner riveting. Even when we feel fully convinced of the truth, including the motive behind the murders, Sheila Bugler still has a surprise in store ... the reader is kept in suspense until the very end -- www.crimereview.co.uk
