- 'Whoa! That's exactly the word I thought when I finished reading Deadly Thyme, the absolutely riveting and action packed new book by R.L. Nolen. Mysteries are some of my very favorite books, but I find that I can often solve them quite quickly, only finishing the book to find out if I was right. Not so with Deadly Thyme. Author R.L. Nolen's work had me sucked in from the very beginning, and I simply could not stop reading until I reached the very end, with not a clue as to who the villain might be. R.L Nolen has done a great job in creating interesting characters, great scenes, and a simply exciting and thrilling read. Any reader who enjoys mysteries, action, adventure, thrillers, suspense or just a great read in general would love Deadly Thyme'. ~Reviewed By Tracy Slowiak for Readers' Favorite
- 'A riveting thriller!' ~ The Wishing Shelf Awards
- 'Fans of small town dramas are sure to be sucked into this little Cornish village, with its creepy caves and bodies washing up on the beach. R.L. Nolen crafts a suspenseful mystery with superb prose, and I was delighted by the way the villain's herbaceous clues connected with the novel's title. Flowing expertly and with diligent detectives and unexpected plot twists, I daresay that Nolen is my modern day Agatha Christie, long searched for and finally found. Deadly Thyme is an incredibly compelling read with realistic emotional impact, descriptive attention to detail, and a portrayal of unsettling true evil that will stay with me for quite some time yet. I absolutely devoured this book. ~reviewed by K.C.Finn for Reader's Favorite

I am giving it a good four stars because I feel like it really sucked me in but it wasn't without it's faults. Most of the main characters are fairly developed but I would have loved to see more depth to some, especially Annie and also her friend Dot. The latter is not mentioned much in the book beyond the initial start.
This book is very well detailed and it was great to read but sometimes the details went on for so long I feel it was easy to get distracted. I wasn't able to read this book as fast as I normally do simply because I found my thoughts getting off track and it was hard to come back to the story.
One of the most fascinating things was the depth and the knowledge of the herbs and symbolism. It was really, really interesting and tied into the story very well.
I love that this book really keeps you wondering who the antagonist really is and it wasn't until the interviews towards the end that I had any inkling and even then I was still guessing at times due to wording and clues put throughout the dialogue beyond that.
One of the most bothersome things to me is the murderers demise and the uncertainty of what happened to him. So many questions...
With all of this said, if you enjoy mystery novels I highly recommend this! Nolen definitely has a gift! I also really recommend The Dry to young adult readers who enjoy sci-fi.
There is a lot to interest a mystery reader in this book. The author captures perfectly the atmosphere of the small English town, its inhabitants, and its police. The characters are authentic, likeable, interesting, and sometimes eccentric. For me, the blood-thirsty serial killer is the show-stopper. I couldn't put the book down as it sped toward its suspenseful conclusion. This one is a special read, exciting and fun.
Thank you so much for such a good read...you kept my attention and I couldn't put it down!
Brilliant! And I am a Brit, so know of this area in Cornwall that you used. Good accents!
I will look for your other books.

Missing child, distraught mother (whose angst is superbly portrayed), lunatic abductor, and a heroic cop, what's not to like?
There's a lot going on in this well-written tale about an American mother and daughter hiding from a vicious husband in Cornwall.
What once was a rural idyll turns into a nightmare place of horror and heartache for Ruth when her 10-year-old daughter is abducted. The tension ramps up when she starts receiving mysterious emails and notes. And then the police discover the body of a young girl...
I'll give nothing more away but will say this--highly recommended for lovers of 'woman in peril' mysteries. Not for lovers of 'cosy crime'!
Annie Butler is abducted from a sleepy costal village. A few days later the body of a child is washed up. Although she wears her clothes, the child is not Annie.
There were lots of twists and turns, and whilst twice I suspected correctly, I also suspected several other characters, including two of the investigating officers.
A great yarn, bursting with character.
I have my fingers crossed there will be more mysteries for Jon to solve.
