  • What a surprise!

    Trigger warning: mental illness. When I requested this book I didn't know it was the 4th in a series, however, I had no problem whatsoever reading it as a stand alone. In this book we face The Rose Petal Ripper, a serial killer who goes for victims named after flowers, leaving a rose on their bodies after he kills them. This story is narrated by Daisey, the third victim, and Dan Riley, the detective. We also get to read about the past of the serial killer, so we have an idea from the start of who he might be and his presumable motivations. Our main character, Daisey, leaves the party early and heads home. That very night, she is attacked by someone she apparently recognizes but unfortunately couldn't remember a thing afterwards. She barely survives the attack and is found right in time. I must confess I wasn't much into this book right at the start. I didn't like Daisey right away, but I kept reading and I'm glad I did so. She is a troubled character, with some past trauma she hasn't dealt yet when it comes to her past toxic relationship, even though she can't see it right away. After the attack we get to see the notorious change ir her behaviour and how it affected her at so many levels. Then I think we finally get to see the real Daisey and at this point she became a very interesting character since she let her guard down, way more real and someone you can actually sympathize. Even though the ending was a bit predictable, there was some details I didn't get quite right. I had the correct idea, I just didn't know how to assemble it all together. By that means, I think the path the author took was so clever and interesting! Besides that, it also addresses important themes we should be talking more in our reality, and I loved that in particular. In the end, when I thought I would be DNF'ing this book, turns out it was worth 4 stars!

  • Loved!!!!!!

    My Review: Loved, loved, loved this book!!!!! This is not my first rodeo with this author and it certainly won’t be my last. I’ve read several books by her and loved them all. This book is part of a series but it can be read as a stand alone. I’ve actually read this series out of order and had no problem with it. This book was about a woman that survived a brutal attack. It really took such a bad toll on her. She could only remember bits and pieces so the attacker was still at large and never caught. She was even drinking all the time to forget the pain. She did feel like she was being stalked afterwards. Was her attacker coming back to finish the job? Will her memory ever get better to catch her attacker? Will she ever feel at peace? You learn this and so much more by the end of the book. I want to start off by saying how much I love this author. She really knows how to entertain her readers. I could immerse myself in her books all day long. Let’s begin with her characters. They were fantastically written. I really felt the pain of each character and felt like I was right there living in their world. I felt so emotionally connected to each one. The plot of the story got me too. Once I read the blurb I said to myself I must read this read. The plot really had a good story line to it. It was so fast paced andI couldn’t put it down for the life of me. Now on to that ending. I didn’t see that one coming. It was so dark and twisted and I really felt bad for the attacker even though I knew I shouldn’t have. I loved every minute of that ending. It was like a roller coaster ride I never wanted to get off of. I will definitely be reading more of this authors book in the future. Between the plot, characters and all the twists in this book it made it an easy and fast read. I would definitely recommend it and happily give it 5 Hearts❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

  • Great series

    The Woman Inside is a fast paced psychological thriller that does not disappoint. Dan Riley (fourth in the series) is determined to find out who the serial killer is that is killing women, posing them and leaving a rose on their body. He feels he has a chance now that Daisey was attacked and she managed to survive even if she can't remember who attacked her and left her for dead. Can Daisey remember? Will the killer go after her again in case she does.. I yelled at Daisey, I cried with her and I cheered her on. Poor Daisey. I am a big fan of Dan Riley, his character gets more depth with every book and I would so want him on my side if the need arose. I will be at the front of the line for Book 5 in the series.

  • Anna-Lou Weatherley - The Woman Inside

    Shortly after her fiancé left her, Daisey gets drunk during a professional event. The same evening, she is attacked in her flat but unexpectedly can survive. Yet, he has no memory at all of what happened and of who her assailant might be. She is not the first, London is haunted by a clever man that much some DNA finding can confirm, more is not known. A complicated case for Detective Dan Riley and a lot of time pressure since they are sure that Daisey is not the last. But then, things seem to fall into place, all evidence hints at Daisey’s ex Luke who behaves highly suspiciously, too. Dan remains sceptical, he is sure that there is much more behind the coward murders, however, who might have a reason to direct police’s attention towards Luke? Can the forensic psychologist whom Dan is forced to consult shed new light on what the investigators have found? I totally adored Anna-Lou Weatherley’s novel “The Stranger’s Wife” and her latest thriller did not disappoint me, either. It is not just the classic play of who is quicker and cleverer - the police or the murderer – it is the psychological profile of the wanted person which is extremely interesting and cleverly drafted to make it a really exceptional thriller. Daisey is hit twice, first, her fiancé leaves her for a younger woman, then, she is attacked and seriously injured. Additionally, she cannot pay the expensive flat alone, this is why a new colleague moves in with her. She isn’t alone anymore, but her mental state is unstable. She seems to hear voices or people moving around in the flat, mixes up what her new flatmate tells her and she has some flashbacks which bring back fragments of the evening in question. She is really not doing fine and quite palpably, the horror isn’t over for her even though many friends and the police take care of her. The narration is interrupted time and again by a second line of the plot which is set about two decades in the past and tells the story of twins who are quite close but also mysteriously witness some serious misadventures. It is obvious from the start that this part gives insight in the murderer’s childhood and provides the reason for his strange behaviour. However, you cannot link this narration to any of the characters of the present. A mysterious plot which remains blurry for a long time but does not lose its suspense. A superb read which I enjoyed from the first to the last page.

  • Predictable

    I have loved every Dan Riley book in the series so far. This one was just as crazy a story but a little more predictable than the last few. I kept waiting for the surprise but it just never came. No real twist that wasn't obvious from about a third into the book. The story itself was still compelling, but with nothing to figure out, I was left with just following a path I already knew until I got to the end. I was reading passively waiting to see when and how the author would reveal what was glaringly obvious. Even the sudden epiphany that one of the cops had was so blatant that I could not believe no one had made the link before. Then it was leaked to the press because no one else had noticed either. How? This felt rushed and less well thought out than the previous books. I don't feel like I got any more insight into the characters either. None of the new characters was particularly interesting or likable. I literally kept reading just to see if I was right. I will read more in the series as they come out because of the strength of interest I had in the first three books, but I can't really get behind this one.

    Thanks for your feedback!
