Pre-Order at Amazon
Release Date: 12/12/19
Missing children are every parent's worse nightmare, surpassed only by that of the loss of a child. Sadly this happens more than any of us would like to admit. As parents, we have a deep-seated fear for the safety of our children and often prefer to live in a 'this is the kind of thing that happens to other people, not us' bubble. Unfortunately, this is what DI Ward has to deal with daily, she's unable to hide away in a bubble. She returns with a bang in the much anticipated fifth installment of the Detective Natalie Ward Crime Thriller Series.

Wow! Just wow! I absolutely loved reading The Blossom Twins! Carol Wyer really gives her readers the feeling of being behind the scenes during a police investigation. Her brilliant writing style and attention to detail truly bring The Blossom Twins up to a next level crime thriller. I rated it a glowing, jaw-dropping five-stars! I'm pretty sure I'm going to need help readjusting my mind and jaw after I pick it up off the floor!

Fourteen-year-old Isabella goes missing at an outdoor concert in the few minutes it takes for her older sister to get them some drinks. Not long after, her body is found alongside scarlet roses. Later that night, twins Erin and Ivy go missing from their backyard tent set up. When their bodies are discovered covered in deep pink petals positioned similar to those of a previous case, it doesn't take long for Natalie to be called to the scene. Could these cases be related? Maybe. Either way, she's tasked with finding the killer. To DI Ward, the similarities of these cases are striking to The Blossom Twins case she worked awhile back, but that killer had been brought to justice. Could this be a copy cat, or did she put an innocent man in jail? When Natalie receives an eerie letter from the presumed killer the next day merely stating, "I'm back," it becomes all too apparent that this case has become personal. Perhaps too personal as the killer draws his attentions in on the detective's own daughter, Leigh.

I would happily recommend this book to anyone looking for an exceptional crime thriller read! This was my first time reading Carol Wyer, but it definitely will not be my last! I hear number six in the series should be out in 2020, and I couldn't be more excited! Thank you to NetGalley, the publisher Bookouture, and the author Carol Wyer for providing me with an advanced reader copy of this title in exchange for an honest review.
