    I have read and enjoyed all the others books in the DI Helen Grace series that, when I saw this on NetGalley I was so excited that, I had to request it. I had originally pre ordered it. Melanie Walton wakes up in her tent in the New Forest with a banging headache, finding her partner ...

    OK book, however, I did figure out who the baddie was and the motive quite early one. Also, the new guy on the team and his fascinating with Grace didn't rock my boat. I enjoyed listening to the book, but so far this is one of the weakest books in the series. The narrator did a good jo...

    Down to the Woods is the8thDI Helen Gracethriller by M J Arlidge.I haven?t read any of the earlier books and it's obvious that Helen has a particularly dramatic and traumatic backstory, but enough explanation is given for me to read this book as a stand-alone. It's tense and ...

    Please, do yourself a favour if you haven't already done so and start this series from book one and read in order. To say that Helen Grace is a bit complex would be a bit of an understatement so to get the best from her, what she does, and how she does it you do need that backstory. Oh...

    I?ve loved all of the previous books in this series - have rated them all 4 or 5 stars - but this one just didn?t grip me in the same way. I thought the plot was very good but the delivery was a bit dull. This novel was far more police procedure with a lot less storyline about Hele...

    First of all thank you to Michael Joseph Penguin Books UK and Net Galley for the privilege of reading this book. I have loved the Helen Grace series from book 1 and this latest one certainly does not disappoint. So climb on, take a seat and strap yourself in for a ride of a lifetime. Y...

    I really love the natural beauty of lush green forests and woodland, and just this summer spent time walking in the New Forest where ?Down To The Woods? is located, but the thought of being lost deep in the forest with a serial killer on the loose, hunting his prey to their deaths ...

    This is the 8th book in the Helen Grace series by author MJ Arlidge. I can't believe this is already the 8th book in this series, starting with 'Eeny Meeny' four years ago and I am still enjoying it. When Melanie Walton wakes up in her tent in the New Forest she discovers that her bo...

    Briefly - Hum - I seem to be the odd one out here but having read all the series this is definitely not the best for me. In full This book is the eighth in the Helen Grace series by M J Arlidge. I've always found DI Grace a good character of real depth. In this book, after a fairl...

    I'll be honest and say the last book I read in this series was the first one. Since then it seems that time has escaped me so despite muttering to myself about reading in order, when this arrived on my doorstep the cover just drew me right in.. I'm going to have to get to the backli...

    Another good solid read in the Detective Helen Grace series. I like the characters and the mystery. It's like catching up with old friends! I recommend the series and reading in order although I'm sure you could read this stand alone, there are a few brief references to past events b...

    If you go Down to the Woods today... you'd better go in disguise... beneath the trees where nobody sees... is a devilish killer. Ponies slaughtered and victims hunted down and dispatched with such evil and menace. But it's no picnic, certainly not for DI Helen Grace, who once again is ...

    Down to the Woods is the latest book in the wonderful Helen Grace series and whilst it could be read as a standalone, personally I think you need to read all the books in order to get a better understanding of who Helen Grace is and the rest of the team. This book felt very differen...

    Having already read a few books in the series of Helen Grace, I knew I was in for a treat with this book. I was so excited to get a copy from Netgalley in exchange for a review, that I failed to notice I am 2 books behind in this series, but desperate to start this book I will for once...

    Visit the locations in the novel This is macabre even by MJ Arlidge standards. He really is one of the top authors for taking an innocent place, The New Forest for goodness sake, with its trees and areas of recreation ? and then turning it into something really dark and cre...

    DI Helen Grace is back in business, albeit a little less explosive, proving there is life in this series yet! After being on the verge of giving up with this series after two less than stellar instalments, M.J. Arlidge has resurrected Southampton Central?s Major Incident Team from...

    If you go down to the woods...... 4.5 stars Down to the Woods should come with a warning - "highly addictive". I couldn't stop reading it and it resulted in more than a few very late nights and almost sleeping through my alarm the following morning. This was only the second boo...

    A relief that Book Eight in the Helen Grace series is much better than its predecessor, which I was thoroughly disappointed in. We have the usual set-up of a grisly find that is investigated by Southampton?s finest investigators, with a new DS who?s joined the team. There is my...

    The link from NetGalley to GoodReads and Facebook are not working so I'm submitting my reviews manually until it's fixed. I was delighted at the opportunity to read this novel as I?ve followed the series all the way through. It was good to catch up with DI Helen Grace, her side-ki...

    Arlidge gained me as a fan of this explosive serial killer thrillers right from the outset, and his Detective Inspector Helen Grace series, set in Southampton, is one of my favourite ever series'. 'Down To The Woods' is another excellent addition, and being book eight, I just hope now ...

    First of all I am never going camping again and I live in the New Forest. What can I say about this book. This is an amazing read. I just had to keep on turning the pages. There are so many twists and turns and it took me until the end to find out who the killer was. This is great...
