No longer the fresh-faced new cop in the station, life should be getting easier for WPC Samantha Barrie. She is settled into her job at the station, is well liked on her beats, and is on track to pass her probation and become a fully-fledged police constable.
However, when her colleague and best friend, Steve, is arrested for apparently trying to smuggle drugs into the Isle of Man, Sam is determined to prove his innocence.
As headstrong as ever, Sam soon finds herself deep undercover and embroiled in a mystery which spans decades and has ruined countless lives.
Who framed Steve, and why?
Who is the mysterious Vincent Boyle, and what is his connection to the murky past at Hornthorpe Dell airfield?
Can Sam save not just her friend’s life and career – but her own as well?
Blue Sky is the sequel to Blue Bird and the second book in the WPC Sam Barrie series, described by readers as “Hard to put down,” “Authentic”, and “Move over Lynda La Plante – you have been equalled, if not bettered!”

Thank you NetGalley and Burning Chair for the eARC.
This is the 2nd in the WPC Samantha Barrie series, but easily read as a standalone.
Sam has settled into her job, is liked by her co-workers and her (secret?) loving relationship is still going strong. But when her best friend and co-worker Steve is arrested on the Isle of Man, suspected of smuggling drugs, she vehemently refuses to believe he's guilty and does everything in her power to prove his innocence. Acting mostly alone (breaking a few rules) she invites danger but plunges on nevertheless.
I loved the the 1970's vibe as well as the irrepressible Sam. It's not quite a cozy, but still made me feel warm: no gruesome details, no serial killer - just a bunch of likeable bobbies who do their best and get along, an absorbing story with a extremely engaging protagonist and some parts that make you smile. Definitely recommended!
