In Bloom – C J Skuse ★★★★

Blurb; If only they knew the real truth. It should be my face on those front pages. My headlines. I did those things, not him. I just want to stand on that doorstep and scream it: IT WAS ME. ME. ME. ME. ME!

Rhiannon Lewis has successfully fooled the world and framed her cheating fiancé Craig for the depraved and bloody killing spree she committed. She should be ecstatic that she’s free.

Except for one small problem. She’s pregnant with her ex lover’s child. The ex-lover she only recently chopped up and buried in her in-laws garden. And as much as Rhiannon wants to continue making her way through her kill lists, a small voice inside is trying to make her stop.

But can a killer’s urges ever really be curbed?

My Review; This is book two in the series and best read in order. I absolutely fell in love with book one (Sweetpea), this is still a brilliant read but much more tame compared to book one I wanted more psycho, more killing. But in this book she’s going through her pregnancy and giving birth which seems to keep her calmer than normal…

However, towards the end it seems that in book three (Dead Head) her psycho & killings will be back and I really hope so. Bit of a cliffhanger of an ending. Will she ever be caught? With a detective on her tail it’s possible. I love this series and cannot wait to see what happens in book three. Dark. Murders. Death. She’s one clever lady. No spoilers from me but parts had me shocked. Brilliant. Devoured it. Highly recommend. A well deserved four stars from me.
