My thoughts on another fantastic addition to the #LottieParker series. #Book5
The boy’s body was so white it was almost transparent. But that’s not what caused the nausea to rise up her throat. He was so young. His body was unmarked, surrounded by a halo of plucked wildflowers.
One hot summer evening, eleven-year-old Mikey Driscoll is on the way home from playing with friends. Two days later, his body is discovered on a bed of wildflowers by some local teenagers.
The case is assigned to Detective Lottie Parker and this time it’s personal. The victim was a close friend of her son, Sean, from the run-down Munbally estate on the other side of town. Sean tells his mother Mikey was behaving normally before he died, but Lottie can’t help but feel that her son is keeping something from her…
Then days later, another boy is found dead, surrounded by wild flowers next to beautiful Ladystown Lake.
On the hunt for a twisted individual with a terrifying calling card, Lottie must uncover the web of secrets within Mikey’s circle of friends. Someone is hiding something but who are they protecting and can Lottie find out before it’s too late? Lottie is desperate to catch the killer before he strikes again because this time her own child could be in terrible danger…
Book 5 in the amazing Lottie Parker series. This is another series I love reading and I look forward to each and every book. A series that is well worth reading. Great characters and fantastic story lines. You really need to be reading these books.
These books captivate you and drag you into those pages right from the beginning and this one, book 5 is no exception. I loved it. I really am a huge Lottie Parker fan. As soon as I started this book it felt like i'd only just left Ragmullin, and I was right back there from the get go.
Lottie and her team are faced with the deaths of two young boys. This is a difficult case, not only because it's children but because there seems to be no real clues to set them off.
A rollercoaster of a ride for the team. Lottie is also struggling with her home life, after losing her home to fire, she is living at her mothers with her children. It's certainly not an ideal situation, Lottie seems to really be on the edge in this book, I just can't help but like her even more with each book I read. She's still a little screwed up, but this really adds to her character and makes her stand out as an individual.
Some great twists in this brilliantly written story. Although the story can be a little upsettings its put together so well. Well worth reading and totally gripping. I know I keep going on about this and I say it all the time, but I really do recommend that you read this book after reading the previous ones. I guess you could get away with reading just this one, but where is the fun in that, when you could actually read all 5 back to back. Its certainly worth knowing Lottie's back story as I feel it adds to the story.
Can you believe that you can have the whole 5 book series for less than £8.00. The dark nights are drawing in, why not get yourself a snuggle blanket and this series of books, you certainly wont be disappointed.
