Behind Blue Eyes
Stockholm Murders
Book 1
By CS Duffy
☆☆☆☆☆

Ellie is an investigative reporter. While she has decided not to go back home in London. She has gotten herself in a full blown murder investigation. The one man that has caught her interest as well as her heart. She is left wondering if Johan knows more than he is telling.

CS Duffy has written this rollercoaster of a ride story. Her characters are well fit for their part in the book. This is a fast moving page turner. Once your in, you can’t put it down. I feel the best part of this story, is never knowing what will happen next. The suspense is well packed and ever changing. Book 2 can only go up from here. I’m looking forward to reading book 2 as well as any other book written by CS Duffy. Well done CS Duffy! Well done!!!

Behind Blue Eyes (Stockholm Murders Book One) by C. S. Duffy

5-Stars

Behind Blue Eyes was adventurous and mysterious. Ellie moves to Sweden with her boyfriend Johan and gets wrapped up in shelving murders. She discovers that there may be a serial killer within their midst after finding the body of her boyfriends ex. It cant be him though, they are too perfect together.

I really enjoyed this excellent novel. It was an easy read with a catchy storyline. I loved the scenery and character development. It was creative and invigorating. I thought I had the murder pegged but I was surprised at the end. I highly recommend this book and I look forward to reading more in this series.

Behind Blue Eyes is the first book in the Stockholm Murders series by C. S. Duffy. It’s a really gripping thriller that will suck you right onto the story from the onset. At one time this was my favourite genre but I have strayed away recently. After reading this book, I’ll definitely be reading more thrillers. I had never read any of this author’s work but I’m pretty sure i’ll be reading more of it.
The plot of this book will have you gripped throughout. Just when you think you have the story worked out, the author takes you in a new direction that has your head spinning.
Ellie has moved to Sweden to be with Johan, the love of her life. She doesn’t know the language or anything about Swedish culture. Soon after her arrival, she discovers a dead body on the beach. This body just happens to be Johan’s missing, presumed dead, former girlfriend. Ellie’s world is turned upside down. Is Johan a killer? When Ellie starts to dig a bit deeper, she discovers several unusual unexplained deaths in the area in recent years. Is there a serial killer in their midst?
I thoroughly loved this story, the characters were so well written and the plot nicely intricated to keep you hooked. I look forward to reading the next instalment in this series.

Behind Blue Eyes (Stockholm Murders Book 1) by CS Duffy was a heart clutching thriller, that had me hooked.

My first read by this author, and I went in hot. Man oh man, this book had me in knots, my nerves were shot, and it really gave me that punch gut ending I was hoping for. This book was full of twist, turns, ups, downs, and it has you second guessing everyone. I love books like this, no one likes to figure things out from the start. I love the MC, she was smart, witty and read well. I felt like she could have been a real person, who ran out of luck. I love how she brought her background in, and for me, she stole the show. The real kicker for me was the dark humour, it’s a weakness of mine, and for me, rounded out the crazy, and gave me some good chuckles before the madness started again. The detail of this read was on point, fresh, and pulled you into the setting. As well as, the characters were well rounded and believable.

Overall this book was top shelf, it pulls you in, captures you, and when things start to get hot you can’t put this book down until you know what’s going on, and the multi level mystery is solved. And this is where I leave you, in fear I will spoil this gem for you, so to end, this book gets my super high recommendation and my stamp of approval.

Happy Reading

Umm, what did I just read!? This was amazing and I have no words. It’s been 2 days since i’ve finished this and i still can’t get over this book and can’t get my thoughts straight.
I can’t imagine moving to a new country where they speak a language I know nothing about. But that’s exactly what happens here and my goodness, despite her language barrier, it doesn’t stop her investigative mind from working double time.
I will say I had my suspicion and even though I was right, it was by sheer luck I was, as I stopped reading and looked.back at my notes. Yes I took notes as i wanted to figure this out to see if i was by chance correct lol.
This was so good and i cant wait to read the next, as it left me with many questions and I also just want more of these characters. What an amazing read!

WOW!! And Holy Crap….

I just finished this and my heart is still racing…What a book!!

I don’t even know where to start with this review, I do know that this book sits among my favorites so far in 2019, and in this genre definitely in my tops of all time.

There were times while reading I had to slow down and work through some things, this author plotted this story so perfectly and even when I’d get confused for some reason I knew it was for a reason and that it was building something I wasn’t aware of yet. I have whiplash of the brain, I had it all figured out so many times and then just like that I knew nothing.

I knew when I started this book that Ellie was going to be one of those characters you will never forget. I tried to imagine how she felt moving to a place where you know nobody and can’t even understand half of what is being said around you, and she did it all for love. I’ll admit Johan was awesome at times, but he more than ticked me off through most of this book and when you read it you will probably know the exact times Im talking about.

I worked hard right alongside Ellie in this book but the last quarter of this story I felt like a bulldozer running through these words. Good Lord this author even had me questioning the one person that couldn’t have had anything to do with it. I was a hot mess, and still kind of am.

That ending …cliffhanger but then not a cliffhanger…All I know is I must have the next book as soon as possible…I have a feeling Ellie is going to need me even more in the next book LOL
And I have to know what the future holds for these people..ALL of them!

AMAZINGLY AWESOME!!

Behind Blue Eyes is book one Stockholm Murders by CS Duffy. Having not sampled this authors work, I went in with a curiously open mind. I wasn’t let down. This story was quality and quantity.

Mystery and suspense is what surrounds Ellie when she finds herself in the thick of a murder investigation. I am a fan of thrillers, and Ellie and Johan provided me with everything I could wish for in a mystery. These characters have an edge that is captivating and the story captures the essence of suspense perfectly. The story moves along and a reader cannot help but be swept along for the ride. A thrilling read that ended too quickly. 4 stars.

Behind Blue Eyes by CS Duffy is the first book in the Stockholm Murders series. This book is an absolute thriller that will have you devouring it page by page.
I was vaguely familiar with this author before starting this book but I was not prepared from the absolute thrill ride the book took me on. I was hooked from page one and could not put this book down. I just had to know what was going on, who was to blame and whether or not Johan was involved.
I really enjoyed the fact that the main character, Ellie, was so out of her depth while also being so in control. Being in a different, new country gave a much more complex element to it. She wasn’t familiar with the area, or the people or the language which made it much harder for her to find the truth.
This book is full of suspense. It has twists and turns that will keep you guessing. There isn’t a dull moment at all in this book and I can highly recommend everyone give this a go.

Behind Blue Eyes (Stockholm Murders Book 1) by CS Duffy. Holy Moly! I’ve never read this author before but I’m so excited to have found her. All I can say is when you start this book, you better sit down and hold on, its a wild ride! Its the story of Investigative Reporter Ellie who has packed up her life in London to move to Sweden to be with the man of her dreams Johan. She thinks she knows everything about Johan and that he’s the man for her. When she moves to Sweden she thinks her life is perfect until she stumbles over a decomposing body and gets thrown into the middle of a murder mystery in a Country where she knows no one and doesn’t even speak the language. She finds out that Johan and his friends may have a lot more information about the dead body than they are letting on. Will Ellie find out Johan and his friends are terrible people or will the truth of Johan’s past come out and set the record straight? This book reminded me of Gone Girl (which I loved) and I’m so excited its a series!

Oh my-freaking-lanta!! Where has CS Duffy been? I was completely new to the author when I picked up Behind Blue Eyes, but I can say that I will be devouring everything I can get my hands on with this lovely author’s name attached! This book totally took me on a whirlwind of a trip to Sweden. It gripped my attention from the very get-go and didn’t let go until the surprising ending. If you love fast-paced crime novels with a dash of mystery and dark comedy then you will want to grab this book as soon as possible. I am so thrilled to find out that this is book one in the Stockholm Murders series and that there will be more to come from these characters! I will be stalking like no other for book two to be released.

Behind Blue Eyes brings up to Sweden, like I previously mentioned, and we find Ellie a smart, sassy, and confident investigative reporter deeply embedded in a new environment and facing some pretty crazy mysteries surrounding a body. Not only is Ellie facing that she is trying to adjust to a completely new land. Previously from London, Sweden is all new territory for her. Will she be able to find her place among the new home, or will she find herself regretting everything? There are several layers to this book, but some will just give away too much goodies and I can’t bear to spoil this for anyone! Trust me you need this book in your life. I have already added this to my re-read list for the summer! Thank you so much for the fabulous read CS Duffy!
