  • Creepy!!

    Super Creepy make the hair on the back of your neck action as only Ms. Herron can do. She’d sensed his presence many times. Heard some of the Shadow People called him the Watcher. Although she hadn’t seen him in some time now. Ellie Reeves can’t get a break. She has another killer on her hands. There are so many twists in this story it will make you crazy trying to figure it out. This is a thrilling series that just gets better every time.

  • The series gets even better

    After the shocking revelations in the previous book, detective Ellie Reeves is in therapy to deal with the lies and deceit of her parents. Not only does the whole county looks down and condemns the behaviour of their former sheriff, many people see Ellie as just as guilty as her parents. There are many protests in town and Jess receives some very unpleasant mail. She decides to let go of all the negativity and sets out for a good long hike along the Appalachian Trail. She doesn’t get very far though, as she almost stumbles on the body of a young woman that’s left amidst a bed of wild daffodils. The victim has her mouth sewn shut; her throat slashed, wears odd make-up, and is dressed as if ready to attend a funeral. Later Jenny receives messages from the killer. He’s killing young woman according to an old nursery rhyme ‘Monday’s child’, which covers all days of the week. The next day, another victim is found. As if to up the stakes, Ellie gets a very distressing phone call from her friend and colleague Shondra Eastwood, saying that she’s been held by the ‘Weekday-killer’ as he’s been dubbed. Captain Hale asks assistance from Derrick Fox from the FBI who also helped them in their last case. This is the second book in the series and although you can read it on its own, it does lean rather heavily on the events of the first story. So, I advise reading the books in order to have a full grasp of the importance of the first investigation and its implications. The story is mainly told from Ellie’s POV, but some short ones are told by Shondra from the cage in which she’s held or by the killer. We get snippets from Cord and an unnamed woman as well. There was already a lot of tension and all sorts of vibes between Cord, Ellie, and Derrick. Both men have protective feelings towards Ellie but there are other issues that complicate their relationship with each other and with Ellie as well. Then there is also the bad relationship with Ellie’s boss, the new sheriff. One of the things she resents is his misogynistic attitude as well as the fact that her father endorsed him as his successor instead of her. All this tension and stress complicates not only the investigation but creates distrust and suspicions. The author puts a lot of effort into her clues that make everyone into a possible murderer. Cord was already chiefly suspected in the first book, is now made suspicious enough for an arrest, but in other parts, it’s clear that he can’t be the killer because he’s chasing him. Or isn’t he? The story keeps twisting and turning until the very end. The tension and suspense are kept high all along. The end was well found, but somehow a bit of a disappointment. But there is more to come as not all questions and mysteries are resolved. I can’t wait to find out what the writer has still to say. I found one stupid mistake in the book. When Wednesday’s Child is found, they smell something murky, like a dead animal and that leads them to the body. But the body is still warm enough for the killer to be close enough by, to be chased. I thank Netgalley and Bookouture for the free ARC they provided me with; this is my honest and unbiased review of it.

  • Buckle Up!

    Buckle up, put on your big panties, turn on the lights, lock the doors and always be aware of your surroundings. Suspenseful, thriller, gut wrenching, emotional and family, yes family. I asked to read this arc based on the premise. I love thrillers. This did not disappoint. I did not pay any attention to the fact this was book 2. The author does a fantastic job of making sure you can read this as a stand alone. If you do get a chance I would suggest reading book 1 first, just based on what is referenced it will flesh out, creepy suspenseful thriller in its own right. The horror that Ellie feels, the pain and gut wrenching that Shonda feels are expressed so that you feel them. The trail is twisty, turning, red herrings here and there, I had no clue who the culprit was. There was a jaw dropping moment towards the end, and the ending itself left me scrambling to see when the next book was coming out. No, not a cliff hanger, just a hint of what could be coming down the road. Well done! Thank you Rita Herron, Bookouture and NetGalley. I am hooked. I freely volunteer my thoughts and opinions.

  • Determined heroine, obsessed killer😠

    Murder & revenge on the Appalachian Trail: gripping👍👍 What a fascinating, macabre and well-executed whodunit! Oodles of action and suspense, a female lead character who is practically fearless and plenty of questionable characters to keep up the tension and mystery of the motive and identity of the killer going right up to the stormy climax. I cannot think of a single element in this page-turner to call out for criticism. I really love this series about Police Detective Ellie Reeves. This second book in the series was just as gripping as the first. Ellie's broken personal life is inextricably woven with the crimes she's investigating and she never backs down or bows out. The disappearance of her fellow female officer and best friend gave that extra tweak of desperation to Ellie's driven search for a killer targeting seemingly random women on the southern end of the Appalachian Trail. Totally looking forward to the next in the series!😊 Thanks to publishers Bookouture and NetGalley for providing a complimentary advance copy of the book; this is my voluntary and honest review.

  • 4.5⭐ A compelling mystery

    The last time, I read a book by Rita Herron was a few years ago, so, I jumped at the chance to read an early copy of Wildflower Graves, even though I haven't read the first book in the series. And I'm so happy that I did, as Wildflower Graves was an utterly compelling story. That caught my attention from the very first page, and I never once felt lost or confused having not read The Sleeping Dolls. But honestly, I'll definitely be going back and reading it, as this was a brilliant mystery. That was not only full of twists and turns, but it genuinely kept me guessing and with so many intriguing characters, including Detective Ellie Reeves, I was completely enthralled throughout. Would happily recommend, especially if you're a fan of Kendra Elliott and Melinda Leigh. **I was kindly provided with an ARC via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review**
