Blog Tour 7th December 2018
Today it’s my stop on the blog tour for Carol Wyer’s new release, Last Lullaby. Thanks to Kim Nash at Bookouture for inviting me, I’m delighted to be part of it.
Also check out my fellow bloggers on today’s stop.
As I always say, I love Carol Wyer’s dark side!
I’m a big fan of this author, and I can see how much she’s grown into the crime novels with each new book. They just keep getting better and better.
This is one very clever story.
As each suspect is revealed the author goes into detail about their lives and movements on the night of the murder. This gives you as the reader lots to think about and draw your own conclusions and suspicions. When an almost identical murder takes place, the team try to find any details that may link the two, and there are many things to link. There are people known to both victims. Interviewing the suspects is extremely frustrating for Natalie, are they telling the truth or covering it up?
Can Natalie and her team uncover the truth before another life is lost?
A real web of loose ends is what Natalie and her team are dealing with, and deal with it they most certainly do. With some fantastic detective work they find those missing links and wham bam thank you mam, there we have it, our murderer. I can’t say anything more about the plot without giving any spoilers.
Getting to know the new team is great. Finding out who gets along with who, little secrets between team members. We find out more about their home life too, and how work impacts upon it. The end of the book leaves me gasping for more.
A good time to start reading Carol Wyer’s books if you haven’t already, starting with The Birthday.
Well-paced and great writing. Extremely tense and a pleasure to read.
I look forward to the next one!
All my reviews are quite short and concise as I’m here to show off the book rather than my own writing ability.
Thanks to Carol Wyer, Bookouture, and NetGalley for the review copy in which I give my honest opinion.

About the book
(Detective Natalie Ward Book 2)
Charlotte’s baby is safe. But is she?
When the body of mother Charlotte Brannon is discovered by her husband Adam, in their bedroom, Detective Natalie Ward is first on the scene. The killer has left a chilling calling card: The word ‘Why?’ written on the wall in blood.
As Natalie begins to delve deeper into the couple’s lives, she discovers that Adam has a dark past he’s been hiding and she’s sure that the Brannon’s teenage babysitter Inge has secrets of her own.
Then another mother is murdered on her doorstep in front of her young son, the word ‘why’ scrawled on the wall next to her.
All the key suspects have alibis and with her own marriage hanging by a thread, Natalie is struggling to stay focused on cracking her toughest case yet.
When a young woman and her baby disappear, a member of Natalie’s own team is put in terrible danger. Can Natalie stop this twisted serial killer and save one of her own before more families are torn apart forever?
Gripping, fast-paced and nail-bitingly tense, this book will send shivers down your spine. Perfect for fans of Angela Marsons, Rachel Abbott and Karin Slaughter.
