  • Oh what a tangled web

    Oh what a tangled web. Can be read as a stand alone. MacKenzie is all too human, still holding the secret from her youth while doing the best she can to be a good Detective. Twisted tale, surprises along the way and heart wrenching emotion with the lost boys. The very end (before the epilogue) was a tad confusing when the tale comes out. I was not surprised with who shares the tale, but I did get a lost, had to reread who was who again. Buckle up, put your hat on and see if you can solve the mystery, but be on guard for the suspense and twists. Thank you Bookouture for allowing me the arc through NetGalley. I freely volunteer my thoughts and opinions.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • A Suspenseful and Twisty Police Procedural

    Little Boy Lost is the third instalment in the Detective Mackenzie ”Mack” Price series, set in Lakemore, Washington. The actual crimes in the book are self-contained, but I recommend you read these books in order as there is a lot of character development and past events that you would miss. There are two storylines happening simultaneously. Mack's father was recently killed and what was originally ruled a robbery is not being investigated as something else. Mack seems to be a suspect even though she thought her had died twenty years ago and only recently knew he was alive in the last few months. There are a lot of secrets involving this plotline that are uncovered as the story progresses. The second situation involves three nine-year-old boys who disappear on a school fieldtrip. When the first one shows up dead with the same signature as a serial killer that Mack's partner, Detective Nick Blackwood arrested ten years earlier, it is intimated that Jeremiah did not kill the last victim, Johnny Cooper. Mack is directed to go over all the evidence from Johnny's death with a fine tooth comb and she uncovers some inconsistencies. Both of these situations take their toll on both Mack and Nick. Will they find the last two boys before another ends up dead? Will they figure out what happened to Charles Laurent? This book has a lot going on, but Ruhi Choudhary does a great job of juggling these two plotlines into an excellent story. I really like Mack's character. She has some baggage that she has been dealing with for many years and they effect all her decisions. She is driven, smart and extremely observant which makes her good at her job. She and Nick are best friends and are able to work together and help each other when they are dealing with emotions and negative feelings. Nick is a separated dad who loves his daughter Luna. She is a sweetheart, although a bit sassy. I enjoyed her character as she brought some lightness into the story. Nick is a dedicated cop who puts too much pressure on himself, but fortunately, both Luna and Mack can help him not too spiral. The crimes/mysteries are very well written and easily pulled me into this story. The writing is engaging and easy to relate to. There were enough suspects and twists to keep me guessing right until the final reveal, I mean literal reveal when the mask is pulled off. It all fit well together and was believable, although a bit crazy. There is a lot of action, drama and tension, and there's never a dull moment. For a small town, there sure is a lot of darkness, corruption and crazy happening. If you enjoy a good police procedural, with some twists, then this series is definitely for you. I recommend the Detective Mackenzie Price series. The publisher generously provided me with a copy of this book upon request. The rating and ideas shared are my own.

  • Gripping mystery thriller

    'Little Boy Lost' by Ruhi Choudhary is the third book in the Detective Mackenzie Price series. This series is one of those that I have read from the first book till the current one and with each new book the mystery, the thrill and the twists reach a notch higher. The series is one of those that has two parallel stories, One of the Detective herself, her personal story and her demons that she is fighting and the case of the three missing boys from Lakemore. This book can be enjoyed as a stand alone but it will be real great to start from the 1st book in the series to get a grip on Detective Mack's story. The plot of the story is intricate, The journey to find the culprit is intense and the suspense at the end is absolutely unexpected. Through the series, I have become a fan of Detective Mack and her partner Nick Blackwood. The understanding and the bond they share is intimate in a platonic way that only comes from being with each other and standing in support for each other through good times and bad times. Apart from the mysteries and thrill, the human side of the story, the underlying weakness, the gray areas of human psyche, all make this story super enjoyable and thought provoking. If you love to read stories of mystery, thrill and human emotions and thoughts then this will be a perfect way to spend a day with. If you love stories with strong female protagonists who are equally vulnerable at the same time then this story is for you. I thank the author, Publisher Bookouture and Netgalley for approving my request to read and review this book. The opinions expressed are all mine

  • decades old murder reopened

    This was was given to me by NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. When 3 boys go missing during a field trip, evidence leads Detectives Mackenzie Price and Nick Blackwood to re-investigate a murder from years ago everyone thought was solved. In the meantime, a new detective comes to town and starts investigating the murder of Mackenzie's father. This book did not end on a cliffhanger like the previous two. Although I didn't mind the cliffhangers, it was nice to have closure on a part of the storyline. That's not to say it won't come back around a few books down the line. Throughout the book I was worried for the safety of the children. Didn't guess who was behind the abductions and why. And the ending was heart pounding. I would recommend this book.
