    1. Jemma Dalton's sister Tanya committed suicide and Jemma now wants to find out the real truth of what happened to her sister. As far as Jemma is concerned there is no way known that her sister, Tanya would've taken her own life. It's believed that Tanya took her own life a few months after finding the body of her fiancé who also committed suicide. Jemma flies into Melbourne from Perth and arrives at her sisters apartment where she will stay whilst sorting out her sisters estate and hopefully fin [...]

    2. Another excellent mystery novel by Vicki Tyley! Great characters and a plot that builds tension right from the start with a clever twist at the end that I did not see coming.I love Jemma, the main character of the novel who is a smart, independent woman able to judge people on their merits and not their looks. She has gone to Melbourne to settle her sister Tanya's affairs after she committed suicide shortly after the accidental death of her partner Sean. However, she is puzzled over her sister's [...]

    3. Another excellent mystery by Vicki Tyley which I really enjoyed. It was a very fast read - each chapter lead into the next without time to take a breath. And then there were at least three if not four possible murderers and I swayed from one to another of them as being the most likely chapter to chapter. In the end I decided the one I liked the least had to be the guilty party and I was right! I liked the fact the the main character was smart, aware that she could trust no one (even when they ar [...]

    4. Another book I couldn't put down by Vicki Tyley. Thanks for the gift of another of your books Vicki! Fast paced and quick to move along, set in Melbourne where Jemma is on the case as she tries to work out the circumstances beyond her sisters supposed suicide. I enjoy Australian settings where descriptions of cities and locations are relatable, and this was one of them. I couldn't work out the twist, I had my suspicions but I wasn't right. This was a quick and enjoyable read, which I thought was [...]

    5. Jemma Dalton arrived at her sister’s apartment in Melbourne just as the manager was leaving for the night. Frantically she scrambled from the taxi and racing over to intercept him, successfully gained access to the apartment. Tanya Clark’s body had been found just recently, and Jemma couldn’t believe it when they had told her her sister had committed suicide. Tanya had found her fiancé's body two months previously; a death which had thrown Tanya’s life into chaos. Apparently she had bee [...]

    6. Vicki Tyley continues her rise to be one of the best modern thriller writers around with Brittle Shadows, a disconcerting but compelling mystery about one woman’s belief that her recently deceased sister did not, as recorded, take her own life. Jemma Dalton flies into Melbourne from Perth convinced that her sister, Tanya Clark, did not commit suicide, despite her sorrow at the death, two months earlier, of her fiancé, Sean Mullins, in an apparent sex act gone wrong. Jemma moves into her siste [...]

    7. Mistress of Suspense.Ms.Tyley has done it again. I read this fast paced mystery/thriller in one session except for bathroom breaks.I could not put it down. The characters were multifaceted. The plotting was superb. The story had many twists and turns,and the ending took me totally by surprise. Hurry up, Ms.Tyley, and write the next one. An excellent read and worth much more than the current price.

    8. Another 5 star review! This book grabs you in the first few pages and moves swiftly without ever letting go of the reader. I could not put this book down until I finished it. I pictured the characters in my head, and hoped for love to work out between two of them. Once I thought I figured out who did what, I was surprised over and over again. This book is fast pace, and there is never a dull moment. One of my new favorite authors and I can’t wait to read another book by Vicki Tyley!

    9. A tragedy surrounded by controversy leads a devastated fiance to her own deadly act, and her shattered sister is left to pick up the pieces. Something just doesn't seem right about the circumstances surrounding her sister's death, and Jemma is determined to discover what that is. Despite veiled threats and mysterious events, Jemma persists in following the clues to their inevitable ending. If she trusts the wrong person along the way, she may not live long enough to put all the pieces together A [...]

    10. This is the third page-turner by Australian author Vicki Tyley that I have read, and I must say it’s the best ever, in my opinion.Jemma Dalton flies to Melbourne to sort out the affairs of her sister Tanya, who has died in tragic circumstances. In a strange city, outside her comfort zone, pretty Jemma soon attracts attention. But who are these men who are taking such an interest in her? She’s only recently separated from her boyfriend, and with her sister’s death fresh in her memory she’ [...]

    11. From the get-go it is evident that Vicki Tyley’s latest thriller, “Brittle Shadows” is a much edgier affair than her previous books. Diving right into the story, Tyley doesn’t hold back any punches and goes straight for the jugular, and you can feel the tension that is building in every page.Pulling back a little after the opening chapter to establish a frame of reference and to drop in some backstory, one could be fooled by thinking that the worst is over, and yet, steadily the plot thi [...]

    12. Tyley is a master at weaving a complex, multilayered plot. The many characters Jemma meets starting with the manager of her sister’s apartment and the police detective who assists her, continuing to her sister’s friends and co-workers, all have unclear alliances and murky agendas. Everyone is a possible ally or a potential foe. The more Jemma uncovers about her sister and the other characters the cloudier the picture gets. Somehow Tyley managed to keep me guessing and second guessing what re [...]

    13. With a beginning like the one in this book, you know straight away that you're going to keep turning the virtual pages on your e-reader! I loved the many contrasts in the story that kept me guessing through a labyrinth of characters and situations to try and work out who did it. But as usual, I got it wrong and Vicki kept me guessing right to the last scene. There were some real surprises and twists along the way that made me even more determined to try and outwit the main character and beat her [...]

    14. This is a great story and the construction of the plot is masterful and very absorbing. Jemma initially is naive girl from Perth who lands in Melbourne to finalise the affairs of her older sister who had recently committed suicide. Jemma becomes convimcd that this was not the case and suspicious details start emerging. The story line introduces us to some interesting characters and they add to an exciting climax.I have only recently been introduced to this author and have bought another book of [...]

    15. When Jemma's sister dies in suspicious circumstances it's up to her to find out what happened since the police are satisfied it was a suicide. Moving accross the country into her sister's apartment and life isn't easy, especially when someone wants to make sure she never discovers the truth.Vicki really is the mistress of plot weaving and suspense. It's a gripping mystery that will constantly keep you wondering who is doing what to whom. A real page-turner that you can't put down. When I pick up [...]

    16. I was fortunate to receive an advance copy of Brittle Shadows. I absolutely enjoyed the books that Vicky Tyley has previously written, and this one was no different. The main character, Jemma, was very believable and likable even though she had me spinning with the many coffee, lunch and dinner dates she went on. With each twist and turn I felt right along with Jemma while she was uncovering the truth about what really happened to her sister. Brittle Shadows is an excellent book, fast paced, and [...]

    17. Vicki Tyley's novels are always good value and this one is no exception. I liked the characters, the plot is intricate and woven so skillfully that I have to confess, that I did not pick the murderer! This is quite a set back for me because I usually do, but Tyley managed to hide the identity right until the last minute.As a dedicated fan, I shall be looking forward to more of Vicki Tyley's deviously constructed work.

    18. Jemma's sister Tanya and Tanya's rogue fiancé are both dead. By all accounts, Tanya had committed suicide some time after she discovered Sean's body. Jemma had tried to warn Tanya about him but Tanya wouldn't believe her.

    19. Another book filled with twists and turns that left me guessing. Like all her other mysteries, I couldn't put it down.

    20. I just returned from my first trip to Australia - to Melbourne - so I loved that this was set there. Even if it hadn't been, though, it was a good, solid mystery. Enjoyed it.

    21. Interesting thriller, set in Melbourne, featuring a woman who is trying to understand the death of her sister. I'll be looking out for more from this author.

    22. Was lucky enough to get an advanced copy of this bookVicki Tyley's books keep getting better and better. Can't wait for the next one :)

    23. I must have read the wrong book, or just have been in a terrible mood for the week or more it took me to read it, because I actually almost gave it one star. Interesting start, a huge expanse of no new information or drama while the protagonist flops back and forth with inner dialog about who-done-it, then, out of the blue, a one page climax. Very unsatisfying.

    24. This book was fairly well done, and the mystery had me guessing for most of the book. However, the phone in this book drove me crazy. Toward the end, I was laughing out loud at how many times Jemma Dalton answered the phone, which seemed the only way the plot ever moved forward.
