She didn’t know he was watching. Until it was too late.
She’d walked this path hundreds of times before, she knew every twist and turn. But today was different. She didn’t know someone was waiting for her, hidden away from view. She didn’t know this was the last time she’d walk this path.
Hidden deep in the forest, schoolgirl Felicity Parker is found carefully laid out on a rock with nothing but a freshly picked bunch of flowers next to her lifeless form. Detective Jenna Alton is called in to investigate the gruesome discovery.
With the body found just off a popular hiking route, Jenna believes the killer is a visitor to the town… until a second local girl is discovered.
Within days, Kate Bright, a school friend of Felicity’s, is found brutally murdered at the local swimming pool and once again, the killer has displayed his victim in a terrifying manner and left flowers at the scene.
The town is gripped with fear and Jenna and her deputy, David Kane, now know that the killer is living amongst them, and that he’s picking off school girls one by one. But they don’t know who is next on the list.
As the trail goes cold, Kane and Alton are forced to sit and wait for the killer to make his next move. But now he has a new victim in his sights, and he’s looking much closer to home …
If you love Robert Dugoni, Karin Slaughter and Rachel Abbott you’ll love this nail-biting thriller from D.K. Hood.
Aaaah the long awaited second book in the series surrounding Detective Alton and Kane, and by gawd its another stoater. I know a lot of you like to know if it can be read as a standalone, it could be but I think it would definitely be more beneficial to it read as part of the series.
After reading the first book I found that when transitioning over to Bring Me Flowers it was effortless even down to the introduction of new characters.
The discovery of a teenage girl posed upon rocks in a nearby beauty spot, no DNA present, nothing to identify the killer only a strange gesture of a bunch of wildflowers, what is the meaning behind them. Alton, Kane and the newest Deputy Wolfe are faced with the investigation into the death of Felicity Parker, before another death occurs, are they too late, is the trailing turning cold, are they prepared to wait for the killers next move.
D.K. Hood managed to incorporate the newest member of the sheriffs department easily into the team and I found it amazing the way they all gelled together without any sign of bitterness or rivalry over the reasons behind the relocation of all them to Black Rock Falls.
I couldn’t prevent myself from falling heavily into this book, the grim murders, the crime scenes, the killer, D.K. Hood had me captured and pinned in the plot, following the depraved mind of the killer, absorbing the evidence, try as I might to comprehend what was happening and why.
I would like to thank D.K. Hood, Bookouture and Noelle Holten for the opportunity to become part of the #BlogTour for Bring Me Flowers to read in exchange for an honest review.
I’ve always had a wicked sense of humour, and was the kid who told the ghost stories around the campfire. I am lucky to have family all over the world and have spent many vacations in places from Paris France to Montana USA and Australia. I use the wonderful memories from these visits to enhance my stories.
My interest in the development of forensic science to solve crime goes back many years. I enjoy writing crime, mystery and thrillers. With many stories, waiting for me to write I’ll look forward to sharing many spine tingling stories with you.
