*BLOG TOUR* Left For Dead – Caroline Mitchell ★★★★

Blurb; A victim on display. A detective on the rails.

Shopping with her sister, DI Amy Winter is admiring a Valentine’s Day window display of a perfect bride encrusted in diamonds and resplendent in lace—until she notices blood oozing from the mannequin’s mouth.

My Review; Left for Dead is book three in the DI Amy Winter series. Best read in order as it does make references to the previous books. It’s been a while since I read one by Caroline and I forgot just how good she is. This book has it all! There is always something happening to keep the reader flicking the pages.

Amys gut feeling is back but is she right? When bodies start turning up in the most public of places the team know they have to act fast. They are up against a clever, determined and twisted killer. As in the previous books we get to see the personal side of Amys life and it isn’t pleasant, she has a lot to deal with lately… But that won’t stop her.

A gripping, dark, twisted, disturbing, deep, haunting, hallowing case. Full of suspense, a real page turner and an edge of your seat your seat read! It’s brilliant. I cannot wait to see what the rest of this series brings us. A well deserved four stars from me. Highly recommend.

*BLOG TOUR* Truth & Lies – Caroline Mitchell. ★★★★

Blurb; Meet Amy Winter: Detective Inspector, daughter of a serial killer.

DI Amy Winter is hoping to follow in the footsteps of her highly respected police officer father. But when a letter arrives from the prison cell of Lillian Grimes, one half of a notorious husband-and-wife serial-killer team, it contains a revelation that will tear her life apart.

Responsible for a string of heinous killings decades ago, Lillian is pure evil. A psychopathic murderer. And Amy’s biological mother. Now, she is ready to reveal the location of three of her victims—but only if Amy plays along with her twisted game.

While her fellow detectives frantically search for a young girl taken from her mother’s doorstep, Amy must confront her own dark past. Haunted by blurred memories of a sister who sacrificed herself to save her, Amy faces a race against time to uncover the missing bodies.

But what if, from behind bars, Grimes has been pulling the strings even tighter than Amy thought? And can she overcome her demons to prevent another murder?

My Review; What a brilliant start to a new upcoming series! This is book one in the DI Amy Winter series, kicking this series off with a page turning case that needs to be closed!

I loved it! Devoured it within a day. The chapters are short, it’s a well written and cleverly thought out story! Fast paced… I just had to finish this for answers!

I actually felt really sorry for DI Amy Winters, but she shows she is a brave, strong and determined character not to be messed with! With a great team beside her too which I can’t wait to see more of in future stories of this series. However, two vile murderers! Grr. Poor Amy.

A well deserved four stars. Highly recommend!

*BLOG TOUR* Silent Victim – Caroline Mitchell ★★★★★

Blurb; Emma’s darkest secrets are buried in the past. But the truth can’t stay hidden for long.

Emma is a loving wife, a devoted mother…and an involuntary killer. For years she’s been hiding the dead body of the teacher who seduced her as a teen.

It’s a secret that might have stayed buried if only her life had been less perfect. A promotion for Emma’s husband, Alex, means they can finally move to a bigger home with their young son. But with a buyer lined up for their old house, Emma can’t leave without destroying every last trace of her final revenge…

Returning to the shallow grave in the garden, she finds it empty. The body is gone.

Panicked, Emma confesses to her husband. But this is only the beginning. Soon, Alex will discover things about her he’ll wish he’d learned sooner. And others he’ll long to forget.

My Review; Its time to prepare for Silent Victim a highly anticipated book waiting to hit your kindle or shelf from March 2018. What a brilliant treat all you readers can look forward too. I loved it!

Silent Victim had me hooked from the prologue and I did not want to put it down, this is a real page turner full of twists, turns and suspense. It is one of those stories that will mess with your head! The story is told through three main characters Alex, Emma and Luke. The story does flick from past to present throughout but the author has set all chapters and switches back and forth out clearly so the reader does not become confused.

The story as a whole is cleverly written, easy to read, fast paced and brilliant, it also contains short chapters. I awarded five stars for Silent Victim as it was the perfect read for myself and I cannot fault it at all. It had everything that makes a perfect mystery and thriller. I would highly recommend you all go buy this brilliant book now or add it to your list. You will not be disappointed.

Silent Victim is thrilling, gripping and brilliant. It will have you on the edge of your seat throughout. There’s two sides to every story… Whose side will you choose?
