    The second book in the “Nina Foster” series from Lisa Cutts and my first read – I do have the debut “Never Forget” which I purchased a while ago, but due to time constraints at the moment I decided I was going to jump into this one and be up to date. Well kind of. I will definitely be going back to read the first one now and there was absolutely no issue in storyline by starting here. Nina is back at work and being treated with kid gloves – NOT something she is particularly fond of and I immediat The second book in the “Nina Foster” series from Lisa Cutts and my first read – I do have the debut “Never Forget” which I purchased a while ago, but due to time constraints at the moment I decided I was going to jump into this one and be up to date. Well kind of. I will definitely be going back to read the first one now and there was absolutely no issue in storyline by starting here. Nina is back at work and being treated with kid gloves – NOT something she is particularly fond of and I immediately got a feel for her as a character as she pretty much set her own path, so there was an instant connection for me as a reader – when she is tasked with looking into an old case, but it turns out to have very particular implications on a current one, the scene is set for a terrific mystery and a very addictive story. I do love Crime Fiction – there is an element of fun to reading Crime that you cannot get from any other type of novel – so when it is done well, as it certainly is here, it is pure joy to read. There is a wonderful flow, some terrifically drawn characters and an intelligent intriguing mystery to solve as you go. Written in a way that allows you to interpret the clues and follow the trail alongside our main protagonists, with some surprising twists and turns along the way to keep you on your toes, it was a thoroughly enjoyable and fast paced, imaginative read. There are a lot of police procedurals around in the market these days, some might say too many, but for me it just goes to show how popular this type of novel is. When you get one like this it is very easy to see why – when you are reading for pure escapism, but do also want an emotional resonance to it, this is the type of book you pick up. In the case of this particular example, you will not be disappointed – Some great writing, with creative character development, wrapped up in a riddle to solve, if you are a fan of Crime fiction then this is not to be missed. Happy Reading Folks!

    This is the second novel in the Nina Foster series and having read the first one, Never Forget, I can say that Cutts comes back stronger than ever with this book. She has created a wonderful protagonist in Foster who is realistic and amusing. As she goes about her job as a detective returning to duties following a stabbing, we feel her thoughts and fears and well as her determination and sharp wit. It made me smile when she described someone using the 'geezer walk' and said they looked ridiculous This is the second novel in the Nina Foster series and having read the first one, Never Forget, I can say that Cutts comes back stronger than ever with this book. She has created a wonderful protagonist in Foster who is realistic and amusing. As she goes about her job as a detective returning to duties following a stabbing, we feel her thoughts and fears and well as her determination and sharp wit. It made me smile when she described someone using the 'geezer walk' and said they looked ridiculous but were unlikely to ever find out, as those who recognised this particular gait as belonging to a moron didn't want their teeth knocked out for delivering constructive feedback". This was both observant and witty and made me smile. Foster has a wonderful relationship with her colleague Wingsy that flows naturally. It is obvious that Cutts is a serving police detective. This is a definite police procedural, sometimes a little heavy on the procedural detail but for fans of procedurals and those who want to know how it really works behind those secure doors of your local police station, this gives a very real insight. Cutts has also delivered a protagonist who is three dimensional, who has a life, worries and concerns, and family issues that need to be addressed and balanced with the demands of a heavy job. During one particular family meal, Foster really became a deeper person within the novel for me rather than just a cop trying to solve the crime she has been given. It is this insight into the protagonist that will keep me reading the series because having a protagonist admit to feelings that Foster has to, without getting heavy and losing the plot of the story, takes some delicate work. An interesting procedural with a likable protagonist that you'd probably want to go out for a drink sometime with!

    The author's previous occupation as a police officer stands her in good stead for creating a realistic atmosphere for this thriller. Although the overall plot is quite simple and linear, the cast of memorable characters keeps one avidly turning the pages.

    To help facilitate her return to work after recovering from a stabbing, DC Nina Foster is assigned to a cold case involving a train crash in 1964. Very early on she establishes a link to modern day crimes, in particular to recent deaths caused by heroin overdoses. Loving her chosen career as a DC, Nina Foster is certainly an officer you would want on your side if you were ever unfortunate enough to be the victim of a crime. Through her character, the passion for her job is strongly conveyed – she To help facilitate her return to work after recovering from a stabbing, DC Nina Foster is assigned to a cold case involving a train crash in 1964. Very early on she establishes a link to modern day crimes, in particular to recent deaths caused by heroin overdoses. Loving her chosen career as a DC, Nina Foster is certainly an officer you would want on your side if you were ever unfortunate enough to be the victim of a crime. Through her character, the passion for her job is strongly conveyed – she has unfaltering determination to bring a criminal to justice and balanced with this is the empathy that she has for the victims. For instance after a doorstep burglary she says “The misery they inflicted on the vulnerable always gets to me” and after interviewing a witness who has fallen on harder times states “I found nothing funny about this man’s misery”. She also has a sense of humour and this is scattered throughout the novel. In the author’s acknowledgement she tells us that a few true anecdotes have made it into her novel and she has conveyed the warmth of the humour and the closeness of the team exceptionally well. There were times that I felt that Nina had too much going on:- a kidnapping when young; the outcome of this on her sister Sara and her current health condition; the guilt she feels about her sister; the strained relationship with her parents; the recent stabbing and the forming of her relationship with her partner, Bill. This for me led to giving the reader too much of her thinking (such as the wine consumption ) and there are other main characters such as Mark Billingham’s Tom Thorne and Ed James’ Vicky Dodds that have less going on but have a realism that jumps off the page. It might be that this was due to writing from Nina’s point of view and personally, for me, I would like to step outside of her thoughts for a little while. Explanations of police procedures are not too heavy and there is different information given that was interesting such as logging gold as “yellow coloured metal”. The weaving of the past and present was well written, the pace throughout is good with short chapters and the story line is strong with establishing who did it and then finding out why and pulling together the evidence. I hadn’t read the previous novel in this series and didn’t find this a problem as there’s sufficient background information given. I really did enjoy this as it adds something different to police procedurals. Lisa Cutts knows what she is talking about and can put this across in an engrossing story.

    Nina Foster is back! We were first introduced to this character in Lisa's debut novel Never Forget and I don't think I was alone in impatiently waiting to see what was next for Nina. After near fatal injuries, Nina has gone back to work and although being treated rather gently shall we say, she is back to doing things her way, something I very much liked in the first book This is a woman that isn't afraid to work and it was nice to see that her character hasn't altered. So when looking into an ol Nina Foster is back! We were first introduced to this character in Lisa's debut novel Never Forget and I don't think I was alone in impatiently waiting to see what was next for Nina. After near fatal injuries, Nina has gone back to work and although being treated rather gently shall we say, she is back to doing things her way, something I very much liked in the first book This is a woman that isn't afraid to work and it was nice to see that her character hasn't altered. So when looking into an old case becomes more complicated than maybe first thought lets say it becomes more than intriguing for both Nina and us as the reader. As with the last novel there is an air of mystery and plenty of twists and turns along the way, I felt the writing flowed better than the first novel, Lisa definitely seemed to find her writing style and I found myself turning the pages at a rapid rate. I'd say you could easily read this book without reading the first but I would recommend reading Never Forget first anyway. Another great addition to the crime fiction genre.

    I received this book from Goodreads and I was happy as it fits well in my favourite genre of crime/mystery. The story is told in the first person and tells of DC Nina Foster's return to police work after a very nasty, life threatening incident. It's a gripping tale where one crime seems to uncover even more. It was not difficult to guess the outcome but as Lisa Cutts is a serving police officer herself (where does she find the time?) then you are guaranteed authenticity.

Personally I was reminded, somewhere in the style, though I cannot put my finger on it, of Ian Rankin's Rebus books and that's a high compliment. I sometimes got a bit bogged down and confused by all the official police procedures but that was my problem and that apart I thoroughly enjoyed the read and found it quite difficult to force myself to put the book down at times. I do wish I had read her previous novel first, and will now look for it, but it does nothing to undermine Remember Remember which is a stand alone novel in itself.

    I have not read any books by Lisa Cutts before, but now I am seeking out her other novels. I was hooked from page one; this is a really absorbing police crime novel. I literally wanted to see the story through to the end. The main character DC Nina Foster was attached by a criminal and has returned to work but has been damaged as a result of this. She has her own demons to deal with and is a complex character. Initially she is given what appears to be a boring cold case from the 60s, but as time I have not read any books by Lisa Cutts before, but now I am seeking out her other novels.

Initially she is given what appears to be a boring cold case from the 60s, but as time goes on and investigations progresses there are several strands to this. The investigation takes several turns and delves into a seedy world of criminals. Although Nina’s character is complex and sad she is likeable and the reader is left wanting to know about her sister. This is a DC you would want to fight your case. I can see this as a series and would sit well as a major television drama. I am looking forward to the next book.

    I really liked Lisa's first book, so this was a real disappointment to me to be honest. Before reading it I was pleased to see it had a good rating but I can now see this is only based on a few readers and I doubt they are unbiased. This book did not flow at all and I could sense writers block - which resulted in some painful dialogue/reading at times. Nina now comes across as self obsessed, selfish and. neurotic.

Her trauma from her childhood which was a fascinating side story in the first book is basically now flogged to death! The humour which had been there in the first book was sadly lacking in this one. The plot never run true, the characters are one dimensional and stereotypical. To sum up, do not bother!

    Second book in the DC Nina Foster series and just as riveting as the first one. Lisa Cutts has created a wonderful protagonist who is extremely likeable. Having recently read book 1, it was much easier this time to work out who was who. Though this could be read as a stand-alone, I would definitely recommend starting with book 1 "Never Forget", as characters and story lines are further developed here. The entire story is credible and the characters seem true-to-life. I love the banter between Ni Second book in the DC Nina Foster series and just as riveting as the first one.

The only thing I don't quite get is the relationship between Nina and her boy-friend. There's something missing there. But as this is an intricate crime procedural, that is really a minor flaw. Overall, very enjoyable.

    DC Nina Foster is returning to work after the incidents at the end of Never Forget. She is still battling with some of the demons from her past as well as coping with her recent injury. Foster has been allocated a cold case involving a train derailment 50 years earlier. This is an excellent sequel. The characters continue to develop into likeable people. I found I really cared about what was happening with Nina and her personal life as well as wanting her to succeed in solving the case.

    I didn't realise until towards the end that I'd started with Book 2 of the Nina Foster series but it doesn't matter so much as the storyline stands alone. However I will go back and read Book 1 as I do love the character of Nina. She's got issues but she's not what I would call sassy or bossy and she's not in charge which I kind of like. It sets her apart a bit from other 'crime heroes and heroines'. The storyline itself was okay.
