#BlogBlitz: NO SAFE PLACE by PATRICIA GIBNEY,
@trisha460 @bookouture @KimTheBookworm
Its my pleasure to be part of the Blog Blitz for Patricia Gibney’s newest chapter in the Detective Lottie Parker series, No Safe Place. So lets crack on and find out what to expect from Detective Lottie in book number four.
Lets have a look at the synopsis of No Safe Place before I put my thoughts out there, but hey there’s no need really as its a Buy, Buy, Buy from me.
There’s nothing more dangerous than a familiar face…
As funeral mourners stand in silence at Ragmullin cemetery, a deafening cry cuts through the air. Lying crumpled at the bottom of an open grave is the bloodied body of a young woman, and Detective Lottie Parker is called in to investigate.
Knowing the body can’t have been there long, Lottie wonders if it could be Elizabeth Bryne, a young woman who vanished without trace just days earlier. And with a new boss who seems to have it in for her, Lottie is under pressure to solve both cases quickly.
As two more women go missing from Ragmullin, Lottie and her team fear there is a serial killer on the loose. And the disappearances are strikingly similar to a cold case from ten years earlier. Could history be repeating itself?
As journalists begin to interfere with Lottie’s investigation, she fears the killer is about to strike again. Lottie is in a race against time to find the missing women, but the killer is closer than she thinks. Could Lottie be his next target?
If you love Angela Marsons, Robert Bryndza and Rachel Abbott, you’ll love the latest pulse-pounding thriller from Patricia Gibney. No Safe Place will keep you guessing until the very last page.
The first thing I want to say is go Buy, Buy, Buy, if you haven’t read any of the Detective Lottie series what are you waiting for, your missing out, its a series which will leave you wanting more, desperation will set in while waiting for the next instalment. Okay that the desperation may just be me, I just love the writings of Patricia Gibney.
The day that I found out that No Safe Place was the next Lottie book was bloody memorable, I literally was happy dancing around the internet, the anticipation of getting my hands on a copy was almost unbearable, then bang its there, mine to read.
Okay, okay lets get on and see what Patricia Gibney has in store for us with Detective Lottie Parker in book four.
Opening the first pages it clear that Patricia has a flipping amazing plotline evolving throughout the pages of the book. Damn it was hard to leave alone, work, family commitments all wanted to get in the way, but there was no chance that was happening it was my destiny to devour the book in one huge gulp.
A body of a young woman in a freshly dug grave, discovered just as an older woman of Ragmullin is to be laid to rest, there is my slam dunk straight away. It becomes apparent that there are links to the local train station, young women are disappearing, also a similar case years previously bears the same hallmarks, can Lottie and her team solve this grizzly crime and prevent other women from vanishing.
Poor Lottie has returned back to work from time off recuperating, nothing is coming easy, her boss is going on a medical leave of absence and the powers that be have decided Lottie is too unstable and volatile to oversee the team. His successor is a man that will have no qualms in trying to humiliate Lottie.
There was more insight to Lottie and Boyd’s relationship, its apparent that Boyd has a definite soft spot for Lottie, I just wish Lottie would give Boyd a break they are so made for each other. Patricia you need to bring the two together, I can’t bear the fact they are so lonely, they are such a crack team.
Overall Patricia has produced the ultimate crime book. An unbearable tension, No Safe Place tightens its grip on my imagination, sailing through the pages I became part of Lottie, her sidekick, untangling the clues, waiting for Lottie to direct my attention to the criminal entity.
Thank you to Bookouture, Patricia Gibney and Kim Nash for giving me the opportunity to read and review an advanced readers copy of No Safe Place, allowing me to take part in the Blog Blitz.
One last thing I don’t know if I mentioned it but go Buy, Buy, Buy No Safe Place by Patricia Gibney. Here’s the links to help you on your way:
Patricia lives in the midlands of Ireland. She is an avid crime reader so naturally she found herself writing in the crime genre.
A life changing experience in 2009, with the death of her 49 year old husband, meant she had to give up her career, and over the following few years, she rekindled her love of art and writing.
Initially Patricia wrote and illustrated a children’s book, but her real ambition was to write a novel. And she did!
