This book was great! I couldn’t put it down. This suspenseful mystery kept me on the edge of my seat and by the end of it my heart was going a million miles a minute. Our MC is awesome! Witty and smart she kept me entertained through the whole book. I am looking forward to reading more by this author!

Behind Blue Eyes by C.S. Duffy is the first book in the Stockholm Murders series. Be ready for a roller coaster of a story. I was drawn into the story and didn’t want to put this thriller down. Set in Sweden where Ellie has newly moved she is drawn into intrigue and mystery. Whom can she trust? This is a gem of a book and I’m so glad I picked it up. I haven’t read a thriller like this since The Girl with a Dragon Tattoo. This had me second guessing characters and had me relating to Ellie and what she has been plunged into. I am really looking forward to getting my hands on the next book in this series.

There is nothing like reading a book and while you are reading all of the hair on your neck is standing on end the entire time. C.S. Duffy’s Behind Blue Eyes is just that, a supreme psychological thriller. The story had me turning the pages so fast because I could not wait to see what was coming next. I went on so many twists and turns that I needed to anchor myself because I did not want to miss what was coming up on the next twist. The story is about Ellie who left London to follow the man of her dreams. She gets involved in a murder investigation by accident and cannot speak the language in Sweden. She uses caution as she is not sure who to trust. What appears one way may only be on the surface and not apart of the meat of the situation . Will Ellie figure out what is going on? Will the man of her dreams has a different side to him? Hang on to your seats as you read Behind Blue Eyes.
Behind Blue Eyes (Stockholm Murders Book 1)
By CS Duffy. This book was everything I was looking for. The author kept me on the edge of my seat, heart pounding and mind boggled and I loved every single minute of it. This was a new to me author and now I can’t wait to have more! The incredible storyline is written with such attention to details and with characters I won’t be forgetting any time soon! From the heart racing moments to the what’s about to happen moments I was completely hooked from start to finish. I love a book that keeps me guessing and this author did it perfectly! I’m so excited for more and can’t wait! Five huge stars all the way and I with the highest recommendation I can give tell you to not miss this book or this author!
Behind Blue Eyes by C.S. Duffy is the first book in the Stockholm Murders Series and it is off to a good start. It is a who’s done it story that has plenty of mystery, murder and mayhem and has you trying to help find the killer even though you hear from the killer themselves. It is a psychological thriller which is paired with humour, black humour but humour none the less. The plot is well written and well thought out, making it a very interesting and intriguing read.
Ellie James is an investigative reporter and has left behind her life in London to follow love to Sweden. Johan is her love but maybe, just maybe she doesn’t know him as well as she thought.
I look forward to reading the next book in the series.

Behind Blue Eyes by CS Duffy is the first book in the Stockholm Murders series. I love a good mystery every now and again to change things up and I’m glad this was the one I picked. There were twists and turns and it kept me guessing until the very end.
Ellie’s new life in Sweden ends up being so much more than she could have ever anticipated. She expected to get settled with her boyfriend Johan, meet people, find friends and get a job. That wasn’t exactly what happened. She discovers a bunch of random deaths and needs to know more.
I really had a hard time putting this book down, especially the last third of the book when the mystery really started to heat up and caused me to second guess myself several times.
I will be keeping up with this series, I’m already trying to figure out when I will be reading the second book. Ms. Duffy is a new to me author, but now that I have found her I plan on reading more.
I love finding a new author’s books to love and I think I have definitely found that with C.S. Duffy! I wasn’t sure what to expect with Behind Blue Eyes, it’s not my usual kind of read but there was just something about the blurb that made me want to pick it up and I am so glad that I did! I found the story and the characters really captivating and I really enjoyed reading a story set in completely different country to what I have read previously. The pace and flow of the story was great, I read it in one sitting and I was actually a little disappointed when I finished. Behind Blue Eyes is one of those stories where you are so engrossed that you feel like you are trying to solve what is going on along with the characters! I will definitely be looking forward to reading more from this author and series in the future! A great 4 star read that I highly recommend!
Behind Blue Eyes was a good 4 star read and book one in the Stockholm Murders series. Once I started I was pulled right in.
Ellie has an interesting job, she is an investigative reporter. She decides to move to Sweden with her boyfriend, leaving everything behind.
While at a barbeque she decides to go for a walk on the beach. This is where things take a twist and she comes across a body. Ellie’s boyfriend acted a little mysterious about the body, was he involved? If not, does he know who was? Will Ellie be able to solve the mystery?
There is so much more to this great read, but I don’t want to give anything away.
I love a book that keeps you guessing until the very end, this one didn’t disappoint. All of the secondary characters added a great element to the story. We also get to see what the killer is thinking at times. We get lots of suspense, mystery and so much more. Ellie was a strong character, I really enjoyed her. This was a great start to the series and I can’t wait to read more.
This is a wonderfully put together murder mystery. The author does a good job of laying the false and true tale at the same time. They characters were interesting, likable and unlikable at the same time. The story flowed fairly well. It kept me wanting to know more so i read this fairly quickly.
This had to be tough on Ellie. Moving to a new place, learning their customs and not really having the support of her main squeeze. I agreed with many of her actions but I would not put up with the rudeness that followed. It would have been “London here I come!” The other characters were the likable and unlikable kind. Maybe aloof would be a better term. Cool to Ellie but super friendly to Johan. While I didn’t love them they added to the story moving along at a good pace.
The ending was stuff nightmares are made of. I was cringing and, OK I’m am just going to say it….shocked. I am definitely “in” for the next book because who knows what will happen now.
My only complaint would be at the beginning chapters is to say who is giving their POV of the story. The first few chapters were a struggle for me because I wasn’t sure who was talking and what tense (present, past) we were in. I guess as the book moved on it became mostly clear who was telling the story.
