    1. I just love a good British mystery. Even crimes seem to be described in more polite, nicer terms. I like the manner of the detectives, and in this one, I liked Inspector Skelgill's ever-apparent air of distraction and sort of ineptitude that throws the suspects sort-of off, so their guard is kind-of down. I liked his obsession with fishing and completing a bet to catch a record pike, and how, his ability to attempt to win the bet was distracting him from the murder investigation-- but not really [...]

    2. Classic British Detective RompHappily, this author obviously ignored current advice to aim writing to the fifth grade vocabulary. Although the first few complicated sentences required a shift in reading gears, once into the rhythm I was hooked like a pike and thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

    3. I received this book as part of a giveaway, thanks to the author, Bruce Beckham and for my my copy. This was an "out of the box" mystery read for me and I was leaning more towards a 3.5 star rating. I enjoyed how the mystery started immediately and each chapter kept it moving with showing the days and times along with the "whodunnit" that kept me guessing until the end. I just got bogged down in the English terminology and not knowing what some of the words meant. I do like series with re-occu [...]

    4. Wonderfully entertaining. Turn off the TV and pick up a Skelgill book!The author has created a very entertaining protagonist for his police procedural series in police inspector Skelgill. If you enjoy the Dalziel from Yorkshire police procedurals, you'll certainly enjoy the Skelgill from Cumbria stories. There is lots of local flavor from Cumbria's Lake District, especially in the person of Skelgill, a native, heart, soul and tongue. In this book, the first I've read in the series (but it will n [...]

    5. DS Daniel “Dan” Skelgill (Cumbria CID) & 10 other PPL are stranded on the secluded Grisholm Island (Pigs’ Isle in Old Norse).Grisholm Hall is hosting & housing a writers’ WE Wordsworth Writers’ Retreat.Lucy Hecate (26, aspiring writer) is the 1st. 1 Dan meets. Dickie Lampray (59, literary agent) introduced: Abel Thurnwyke (boatman) Linda Gray (46, chef, cook books), Rich Buckley (45, book publisher), Gerald Bond (retired GP, Inspector, guide books) Angela Cutting (37, literary [...]

    6. Stayed up most of the night finishing this one just couldn't wait to find out not only the name and motive of the murderer, but also to work through the case with Inspector Skelgill. Skelgill is out fishing during a raging storm, hoping to catch a huge pike and win a bet, when he sees a woman running along the island's edge. She beacons him in and tells him there's been a death. Skelgill, of course, rows over, ties up his boat and enters into the strange world of writers, publishers, literary cr [...]

    7. Technically a 3.5 read but I rounded up a little because I'm more lenient on self pubbers because everything is on them. I did win this book from in exchange for a review but that in no way affected my review.I do, however, want to break this into two pieces for the review because I liked the mystery more than the style so let me tackle them separately.Inspector Daniel Skelgill is not just a homicide detective but also a highly dedicated fisherman. He is out on the titular lake trying to land a [...]

    8. While out fishing on the lake, Inspector Skelgill is drawn into an unfolding mystery: sudden death, or is it murder? Well, the title is probably a bit of a clue.This is the first book I've read in this series and it worked well for me as a standalone novel. It's a quiet sort of mystery. It's based largely in the world of publishers, agents and aspiring writers, making the book a reflection on the circumstances of its own creation. It was a lot of fun to read. The mystery unravelled effectively, [...]

    9. This book is the 4th of 8 Inspector Skelgill murder mysteries which is set in the English lakes district (use google maps for reference if you are as unfamiliar with English geography as am I), with additional travel to London and Edinburgh. Inspector Skelgill is like fishing when a storm forces him to seek shelter on an island. Unfortunately, there's been a deal at a writer's retreat and there's no means of communication. After joining the writers for a meal and a parlor game, Skelgill falls as [...]

    10. Disappointing in comparison to first 3 books in seriesThe first three books in the Inspector Skelgill series were pure joy to read. Each was better than the one before. Well developed plots and very detailed yet nuanced quirky characters and relationships - adding that extraordinarily special dimension to the stories. Who done it almost becomes secondary to what will happen to Skelgill and Jones. Compared to those, this story is flat. Yes, the plot is okay, but that's all. It's missing the chara [...]

    11. A great mystery story but I had a little trouble getting into it but once I did I really enjoyed the mystery. Some of the language is overwhelming and I think more every day language would have worked better and would be easier to understand.This book reminds me of Agatha Christie's 10 Little Indians or later called Than There Were None.On an isolated island are 9 writers, publishers or agents for the book industry. One of them ends up dead which seems to be normal circumstances. Inspector Skelg [...]

    12. Plot seems to be a variant of Christie's "And Then There Were None." Skelgill, in improbable circumstances, finds himself on an isolated island with nine other people, one of whom is dead. The death appears natural, but is followed by another, which also looks to be accidental. But the events cause questions, and Skelgill and his team are off to find answers. There is a bit of coziness to Beckham's narrative, also some interesting details about life in the north of England. Skelgill's thought pr [...]

    13. Another excellent entry in this series. I enjoy following Detectives Skelgill, Leyton, and Jones through the trials of a murder investigation. This time there are two murders for them to work through. As always, Skelgill's two favorite pastimes, fishing and eating, play their parts.

    14. Murder on the Lake had me guessing and kept me reading. Very good. I quite enjoy Skelgill and his crew. I hope there will be many more books to read. Waiting for the next new book!

    15. Pretty good yarnThe plot is pretty good, but the prose style is awkward. There could also have been more development of the characters.

    16. I received this book through a giveaway, and I would have liked to have given a 3.5 rating, if technology had allowed.Whilst this book works well as an isolated read I will definitely read others in the Inspector Skelgill, as I enjoyed the setting and the characters involved.The style of prose however was, for me, uneven; and I found that I would be totally absorbed in the tale and then thrown off rhythm. It did not appear to be a plot device as there was now apparent pattern to when I became c [...]

    17. Received a free copy for honest review.Detective Skelgill is back with a traditional whodunit where he becomes stranded on an island during a storm with a group of writers that are participating in a writers retreat. His skills as a detective are put to the test when the body of one of the group ends up dead. Was it a natural death or was it murder? I really like this series of detective stories, the main character is interesting and solves crimes in his rather unique way. If you like a good mys [...]

    18. This book starts out as a country house mystery. However, that doesn't last very long and it becomes a more contemporary story. I like the characters in these books but the mystery, instead of unraveling step by step, is only solved at the very end.

    19. I enjoyed the overall storyline of this book. I liked that it kept readers guessing until the end.I did have to keep reminding myself that it takes place in a more present time. My mind kept wandering back to 1800s.

    20. Murder on the LakeAnother excellent Detective Inspector Skelgill murder mystery book. Set in England and Scotland the book offers a glimps into the English and Scottish ways of live, lots of red herrings, and more lessons in fishing.

    21. Murder, old manor, house party, stormy nightAll the requisite elements for a good read are present without being the same old formula. Well written mystery set in the Lake country.

    22. I won this book through the first reads program. Thank you. This is the first book that I've read by this author. It is a nice cozy fireside read.
