    What a great shame This held such promise and I really liked the way she writes BUTand a huge old but it's full of mistakes Gutted as I'd not have packed it in if not for this Woman used instead of women the word stairs emphasised for no reason I could see the word a missing from sentences than once a really irritating habit of putting commas needlessly before conjunctionson almost every page yet not adding one where it's needed here Patsy followed bringing her up to dateThere were no paragraph breaks at the start so it jumped to another place altogether on the next line making it tricky to read yet further in they were needlessly added I got to this line only 8% in and sighed loudly and packed it inperhaps it's just that I'm womanI just don't understand why anyone goes to the trouble to write what seems to me a good story and then put it out in this mess with no proofreading Such a waste Let's hope it gets revised one of these days and I can try againUPDATE JULY 2017The author has gifted me a redone version However it has lost some of the errors I highlighted above last year but there are still way too many distracting mistakes and I've called time again A couple of times I was still caught out by the missing paragraph breaks once againit makes it everso confusing till you realise what's happened I looked up the Napoleon and Josephine mention and I was lost I don't get the reference to them I was baffled too when Frankie mentioned lipstick as it hadn't been referred to before I scrolled back to see I did the same when Meredith was gratified to see a folder left where Patsy had said it would bewhen ??

    At 526 pages the sheer length of this book is daunting But once I started reading I became intrigued with the mystery and decided to persevere By the time I’d gotten through 20% of the story I was confused by the plethora of characters many of whom seemed to have the same or very similar names I went back to the beginning and took notes on the characters something I have never done before Usually my memory for names and characters is good There is a Laura a Linda and a Lisa Worse than that I found two Joes a Joseph and Jo One of the police officers is Joe Collins and one of the victims is Harry Collins Even after going back and re reading these parts I could not figure out the relationship between the two If they were not related why did no one on the police force point out this coincidence? Why would the author give two characters the same last name if they are not related? Checking into the hospital emergency is a little boy named Rory with a rock stuck in his ear On the same page the nurse hands a registration form to Tom What happened to Rory and who is Tom? It isn’t explained Police officer Seaton’s wife or girlfriend is named Sarah as we learn when he is called away from her on Christmas day In the same chapter Frankie also winds up with a new girlfriend named Sarah At first I believed these to be the same person But since there was no rivalry between the two men over Sarah I had to conclude there must be two Sarahs Neither Seaton nor Frankie commented on this coincidence During the tense climactic scene where people are held at gunpointthe villain is captured and he confesses a woman named Jan is suddenly in the room with the others The author never explains who Jan is how or when she entered the room why no one notices she's there or why Seaton decides to put his arm around her Besides the confusion of names there are a number of sudden and confusing shifts in point of view There are many many typos There are misplaced words and rogue punctuation marks I found one paragraph that appeared in two different places word for word While the mystery itself has merit this book needs some serious editing If it were trimmed to half its length with half as many characters each with their own uniue name please it would be worth five stars As it is I can only give it three

    Detective Patsy Hodge on the run from a crappy relationship takes a new job with the CID in Bristol England Her scary crabby but handsome and brilliant boss John Meredith takes a liking to her and brings her in on a puzzling case where all the victims died by lethal injection – it could be assisted suicide or euthanasia or maybe even murder Along the way Patsy fights her growing attraction to Meredith as he fights his to her acuires a stalker and sows discord because some on the team believe she is moving up so fast because she’s doing it on her backI’m very fond of English police procedurals and this one did not disappoint I liked the budding relationship between Patsy and Meredith and the relationships between the team members I thought I’d figured out the villain mid way through but I was wrong and the action packed ending was a surpriseThis story was so good I purchased book 2 and immediately read it I generally try to space out my series reading but I was just so intrigued by the characters I wanted to know what happened next I now have book 3 ueued up This series has really caught my fancy

    I have literally just finished reading this and the story itself is good However the execution for me was lacking It felt very much a chick lit with a love triangle with two guys chasing a girl In itself that is okay just not for me There was too much shall I or shan't I or is that because it has been too long since I dated?As a whodunit it worked I only worked out who did it about half a page before the big reveal Which is great Although I thought the reasons why they did it was weak

    Format Audiobook I might be a bloke but I still feel painAt almost fifteen hours this is a long book but one that holds the reader's attention throughout Misplaced Loyalty is a British police procedural set in Bristol where a rash of apparent suicides seem to have a common element death by a lethal morphine injection They could well be assisted suicides illegal yes but often compassionate until some of the bodies have bruising suggestive of not being a death desired by the victimThe investigation is led by DI John Meredith a good detective but with less than admirable attributes hard drinking and overly fine of the younger ladies and greatly admired by his colleague Tanya Jennings His team had recently been joined by very capable and upwardly mobile Patsie Hodge who to Tanya's disgust seemingly had attracted his attention in than a professional capacity All of the characters are fully functioning fleshed out people very real if somewhat annoying at times And their stories run alongside the pursuit of the case with Christmas thrown in as a bonus The story is intriguing with various red herrings laid down to distract both police and reader with an ending which was most unexpected Narration throughout by Lee Beddow is good no fieworks just good solid delivery nicely paced and intoned and with character voice definition He is pleasant to hear and has clear renunciation making his reading easily understood A nice solid performanceI very much enjoyed this book the first in a series of Meredith and Hodge mysteries and look forward to reading I was very fortunate in being freely gifted with a complimentary copy of Misplaced Loyalty at my reuest by the rights holder via Audiobook Boom Thank you so much MKTaylor has now been added to my list of authors to watch for in the future and I can recommend this to all who enjoy British police procedural with well developed personalities in the writing And fans of the who dun it? This is aso a romance and I personally usually dislike this; but it was far from being of the smootchy kind this one was fun A good read And a striking cover

    A suspenseful crime mysteryThe book begins with the death of a critically ill little girl As the pain becomes unbearable she begs her mother to Make it stop Mummy you're a doctor With her parents and young brother lovingly gathered around her her mother tearfully grants her reuestFast forward eighteen years DC Patsy Hodge is a recent transfer to a rather boring position in Bristol serving under DI John Meredith Things start looking up when they respond to a suicide that has raised the suspicions of the police surgeon He has noticed similarities with other cases that may indicate that the suicide victim was “assisted” perhaps against their will A disturbing pattern soon emerges that has the entire department involved in the case with some off hour involvement between Meredith and HodgeThe book is a well written mystery that ends with a cliff hanger I am not fond of cliff hangers but it was still a good bookThe story line is suspenseful and the plot twists kept it interesting

    After reading an advanced copy of book 8 which I thoroughly enjoyed I thought it best to start right at the beginning and picked up Misplaced LoyaltyHere we meet Meredith and Hodge as they first start working together learning about their uirks and personalities With a serial killer on the loose making deaths appear suicides bodies stacking up and historical deaths coming to light as possibly involved this is a roller coaster ride of twists and turns Crimethriller with a bit of romance chucked into the mix Then to cap it all we are left on a cliffhanger Now to download book 2 to get the next fix I highly recommend the Meredith and Hodge series from the 2 I have already read If you are looking for a new author take a chance on Marcia she won't disappoint you

    GREAT STORY👍I really enjoyed this mystery It has everything you could want Suspense twists and turns Lots of action There wasn't a dull moment And A really nice romance that kept you guessing too This was the first book I have read by Marcia and I am looking forward to reading the other books in the series I like that the main characters are not portrayed as being perfect but as every day people with their little foibles just like the rest of us There is some humor and banter woven in amongst the mystery that is very amusing and I got a big kick out of it I highly recommend you give this book a try

    This was my first M K Turner book and thought the premise was very goodactually a nice relief from all the gruesome serial killer mysteries so popular now The Meredith and Hodge characters were well developed if somewhat unbelievabledo think the story could have benefited greatly from a lot less of their relationship issues with emphasis on the police investigation and procedures This is an easy fast read Struggled between three stars average and four very good ultimately decided to upgrade it to four only because yeah I would like to read the next book in the Meredith and Hodge series
