    1. Ha! Was waiting for this!!!So, overall it was a great second book in the series. Read it more or less in one sitting. Then why only 4 stars? Well, it was a 5 star read, but there were some words missing and I found the expression with 'sat' quite peculiar. (view spoiler)[On top of that I'm a tad bit miffed that Blake and Harrison still are not an item. (hide spoiler)]'sigh'That about sums it up and now I'm waiting for the next book.

    2. 2.5 starsAs I said on my DNF review of the first book in this series, Untouchable, there are good bones here. I feel like this author has a lot of potential but just isn't getting any kind of guidance at all. He clearly doesn't have an editor. Some of the grammatical issues from the first book are improved on - mostly - but many others remain. Many of the character interactions are more or less well done, though the author could use a better grasp on basic human psychology to avoid cliche pitfal [...]

    3. Blake is back and he's better than ever! This book pulled me in from the beginning because I'm a sucker for a good mystery set in a church. There's nothing creepier in my mind. Robert has really ramped things up from the first book, and I don't want to spoil anything, but the finale is absolutely sublime. Would HIGHLY recommend!

    4. This is the second book in The Blake Harte Mysteries series.The quiet town of Harmschapel is once again rocked by tragedy. Three elderly parishioners from St. Abra's church have died by what appears to be fatal heart attacks. They were found dead in the church's confessions booth. When the incidents were brought to the attention of Detective Sergeant Blake Harte as being suspicious, his first impression was that it may have been age related, although three deaths with the same cause does appear [...]

    5. Confessional (Blake Harte mystery #2)Ripples (Blake Harte mystery #3)By Robert InnesSo in the next two instalments of this cute series, set in the fictional British country town of Harmschapel, we see the further adventures of lovelorn exile detective Blake Harte. Blake is a compelling character—smart and empathetic—and has adapted happily to life in this little town where everybody not only knows your name but your business as well. The colorful characters that surround him, from his beehiv [...]

    6. I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book.Another brilliant mystery from this author. The plot line was really well written. But I must say I was slightly disappointed that I worked out who did it before it was revealed. But saying that it didn't detract from the rest of the book. The characters are developed well and there are stories within the stories developing with Matti and patil. My one disappointment is Harrison and Blake I was so looking forward to more interaction bet [...]

    7. An excellent follow up to Untouchable, the author has crafted a story in 'Confessional' that I found compelling, and with the usual wit and excellent characterizations, I was hooked from start to end. These characters are real, and relatable, and their relationships so thoughtfully developed, whilst not distracting from the main plot it's just very skillfully written and I applaud Robert for that. The climax to the story in particular was something very special indeed, and it was my favourite pa [...]

    8. ** 4.5 Stars **This is the second book in the Blake Harte Mystery series and I think it keeps getting better and better. While the series is not too deep, it's quite entertaining. Great plot and characters. I'm very much looking forward to reading the next one!

    9. Better than the first novel in this series, but still in need of character development, more detailed police work, and a plot that isn't obvious from nearly the beginning of the book. The mystery involves the sudden heart attack deaths of four people all found in the confessional of the local church. Although one person suggests that God struck them down, most sensible people feel that it's too coincidental that all four died the same way and in the same place for it to be natural. DS Blake Hart [...]

    10. This was short and felt a bit rushed but a decent mystery and I like the characters- would read further in the series. But I was really confused that the church in the story was a Catholic Church, and the Catholic priests were a (biological) grandfather and a lesbian in a non-celibate relationship. Like did you mean Episcopalian, maybe? But it just said Catholic. Every time. The whole book. Am I in an alternate reality?

    11. ConfessionalMurder and love? Two mysteries of life.Blake and Harrison's one night together (as seen at the end of Untouchable) seems to have come to nothing, though booth look longingly at the other from a distance. Blake's life as a police detective seems fairly quiet. But then people start turning up dead to the local church confessional box. They are all old people, and surely this must be just a terrible coincidence? Isn't it? Although doubtful, Blake agrees to investigate.While certainly be [...]

    12. *~~*ARC kindly provided by the author to me in exchange for an honest review *~~*I was already hooked by the first book, Untouchable, and this one is no exception. Robert Innes has a way to write story totally fascinating and captivating. The tone is calm, still there is subtle humor when the reader the the parts with Blake.I can hardly say hows great this book was and I didn’t know I missed Blake this much, but when I started the book I was right there again. :3 And, gosh, how much I really m [...]

    13. Good mysteryThis was a good mysterypoor damn Harrison.hopefully in the next book things come together for him and Blakee mystery was not bad even tho I had figured it out didn't have that WTH pleasant surprise like the last book but still no complaintstiently waiting on book 3

    14. (Originally reviewed for Love Bytes Reviews. Rated 4.5 out of 5.0 Love Bytes.)I’m really liking these mysteries in the Blake Harte series. As I mentioned when I reviewed the first one, I stumbled on them by accident on In Confessional, we move forward a few months with Detective Sergeant Blake Harte and the other residents of the small town of Harmschapel. Things have been quiet since the events in Untouchable, and the character we came to know if that first book, Harrison, has moved on with h [...]

    15. The Blake Harte Mysteries by Robert Innes start with Sherlock Holmes type mysteries. The dead body in a room no one could enter is fine for book one, Untouchable. In book two, Confessional, Detective Sergeant Blake Harte sent to work in a small village north of Manchester faces another strange problem: men and women are dying in a confessional, having heart attacks while confessing sins. Harte is confused by small town ways on arriving. Some talk too little and some too much; what is truth? The [...]

    16. This is the second in the DS Blake Hart series and quite good. In this mystery, DS is called to ST Abra's because 3 elderly parishioners have suddenly died while in confession. The deaths e seemingly heart attacks, but when a younger person who is found dead in the confessional booth, DS Hart thinks it might be something more sinister. Also, on a more personal note, Blake is looking for love. He's attracted to Harrison but feels it might be strange to pursue him since he was the one who arrested [...]

    17. 3.5*Second book so the regular character set up is not so intense and we get more focus on the murder (is it?) mystery.Once again the culprit is fairly easy to identify but it is the why and the how that is the mystery.Also, Blake and Harrison continue to dos-a-dos around and away from each other before ending on a more positive note.Harmschapel is going to be rivalling Midsomer and Miss Marple’s village for the amount of crime! But enjoying the visits there all the same.

    18. Excellent series. It is well written with well developed characters. I love the mystery. It is well played. I myself have a hard time guessing the killer but when you finally find out who it is the writer does a great job of explaining the motive. I love a good mystery and this one is great. I will say that it is very interesting hearing words and phrases that are confusing for this poor American but it is very cool. I am looking forward to what comes next.

    19. I really like the characters and some of the plot. This small English village seems like it's going to take over from Midsomer with all the murders however to follow on from B's comment below I'm afraid some of the church stuff set my teeth on edge and I'm not sure enough research was done for this book. I would make further comment but this would involve spoilers including the murder method.

    20. Confessional was as a mystery way to short for my liking. Blake and Harrison path to become a coupled pair is long one it seems, because Harrison decided to move on and try to forget his attraction to Blake. The criminal part in confession was predictable, but still enjoyable. I'm looking forward to the third book in Blake Harte Mysteries!

    21. Brilliant!Brilliant book! I am very impressed with the writing and the plot and the pacing of the book. While I can't yet call it a romance novel since both MCs are not together yet, I like the slow burn. There's definitely attraction. An attraction I'm hoping comes to fruition in the next book! ;)

    22. A new mystery that has everyone stumped is finally solved and Blake and Harrison are making slow progress at getting closer, but they have a long way to go. I look forward to cheering them on in the next installment.

    23. Still just a tease of romance. Just enough to get you to want to read the next one. I figured out who dunnit early on, though, so the mystery isn't too complicated. Very fluffy.

    24. Another good mysteryLoved it. Was hoping Harte and Harrison would get together but I'm enjoying the slow burn. Writing ius really excellent as well.

    25. A riveting and fast paced mystery that is sure to keep you reading well past your bedtime. Looking forward to the next book in this clever series. Enjoyed the MC's and I am keeping my fingers crossed that they will connect in the future.
