Description – ‘I’m not your mother. You’re a monster. I don’t want you’

Women who gave a child up for adoption are being killed. A knock at their front door begins a nightmare from which they will never wake up.

For Detective Ruby Preston and her team, it is a race against time to connect the dots before the killer can strike again. But when Ruby receives a sinister email, the case takes a terrifying personal twist.

My thoughts – I am a HUGE fan of Caroline Mitchell and have absolutely LOVED her Jennifer Knight series with their paranormal twists, I devoured each book, so when I heard there was a new series to come (with no paranormal twists)  I must admit I did have my reservations but as soon as I started Love You To Death I knew it was going to brilliant.

Ruby Preston is a great new character, she’s feisty,  hard working and not afraid to break the rules,  yet she’s got a vulnerable side to her and a past that seems to still have an impact on her life. One particular character from her past is Nathan *swoon*. He’s a bit of a bad boy but has a good heart really. I have to say I quite liked him (wink wink). Lucy on the other hand is terrifying, I still get shivers just thinking about her and I have to applaud Caroline Mitchell for writing such a brilliantly terrifying character.

The story grabs you from the first page and doesn’t let you go until the last. I was holding my breath so many times I actually think I turned blue at some points. Love You To Death is full of surprises, twists and turns and it’s one of those books you just can’t put down but really don’t want it to end. It’s dark and sinister and a brilliant start to a new series which I am so looking forward to continuing. I love it when you start a new series like this and it gives you goose bumps and makes you excited to see what happens next.

Absolutely brilliant.

My rating 5/5

Many thanks go to Bookouture and NetGalley for the copy in exchange for an honest review.
