If you like listening to books, the new Sgt. Windflower audiobook version of Beneath the Surface, Book 3 in the series is getting great reviews. Here’s the latest:

Great Series!

This is the third book in the Sgt. Windflower Mysteries Series. I have listened to the second book in the Series, and I enjoyed it. The story is set in Grand Bank, Newfoundland, Canada. Windflower is a wonderful and fun character. Sheila, his beloved, is sweet and lovely. The investigation is well built, and intriguing. The storyline is slow paced, fun, and filled with twists and turns. The story isn’t only centered on the mystery itself, but also on Windflower’s personal life, which is great. The cast of supporting characters is impressive, and intriguing. I like the family bonds in this Series. Francis G. Kearney did a great job with the narration. He has the perfect voice for this Series, and he has a great range of voices. I enjoyed it. Looking forward for more in this Series.

Reviews are Great for Fire, Fog and Water, the new Sgt. Windflower Mystery

Reviews are Great for Fire, Fog and Water, the new Sgt. Windflower Mystery

Midwest Book Reviews says

“Most murder mysteries create a cat-and-mouse interplay between perp and investigator, but the fact that Sgt. Windflower is also probing his own motives, reactions, and life adds an extra dimension of interest to the story that makes for rich and absorbing reading indeed. Readers seeking a fine story steeped in psychological inspection will relish both the character of Mountie Windflower and his ability to navigate the murky waters of self, community, and home.”

Fire, Fog and Water on Amazon Average rating: 4.5

“The author writes in an easy manner that makes the story feel as if you are part of the cast and at home or taking a walk along with Winston and Lady, his dog. A thoroughly enjoyable and quick read that makes you want for more. Love Mike Martin books. Looking forward to more! Highly recommend!”

Fire, Fog and Water on NetGalley Average rating: 4.5

“Apart from being a great murder mystery this is a story of Newfoundland communities and relationships. Having spent a little time in Newfoundland, and loved it, this story really appealed to me. There’s a multitude of layers happening, contributing to my enjoyment.”

Fire, Fog and Water on Goodreads Average rating: 4.9

“This Sgt. Windflower book may be his best. I enjoyed the story and the setting in small town Newfoundland. This is a great series – highly recommended.”
