The Guernsey Novels, to my eternal shame, is yet another series which I've always intended to read but somehow can never find the space in my tbr. So you have no idea how thrilled I was to realise that it was made up of stand-alones meaning I could start with book six and a clear conscience! Beginning in Guernsey in 1940, the horrors of war are immediately brought to bear with Leo seeing his wife and child off on a boat to England, evacuating them to safety before the expected invasion of the island by German Troops. Planning for this, antique dealer Leo takes steps to secretly store the family treasures in the hope of keeping them safe from looting enemy hands. Jumping to 2011, present day owners, twin sister and brother Fiona and Nigel, come across a hoard of artwork hidden away on their premises. Soon after, Nigel's body is found hanging dead in the antique store. Told from the dual aspect of 2011 and the time of the German occupation of the Channel Islands during WWII, this is a mystery, two family dramas, a hint of romance and a touch of the afterlife all rolled together into one very pleasant read. With plenty going on and lots of detail, this is a story which kept my attention right to the final page. A straightforward and engaging read, and a rather enjoyable one too. I hope this bodes well for the rest of the series being as easy-going and satisfying, and I've already added them all to my wish-list. My thanks to Anna-Lisa Hasedzic of the Globeflower Agency for providing my copy. This is my honest, original and unbiased review.
