The Blossom Twins by Carol Wyer - Books on Tour Review

Their parents thought they were hiding…

One beautiful summer’s evening, thirteen-year-old twins Ivy and Erin Westmore snuggle down in a tent in their back garden, giggling and sharing secrets.

When their mother goes to wake the girls the next morning, their tent is empty.

The alarm is raised and Detective Natalie Ward is put onto the case. When the twins’ bodies are discovered on nearby marshland, covered with deep pink petals, an icy shiver travels down Natalie’s spine. Everything about the girls’ deaths reminds her of a horrifying case she worked on earlier in her career, which saw a killer of the worst kind placed behind bars.

The next day, that feeling is heightened when she receives a chilling note saying ‘I’m back’. Is this killer a copycat or did Natalie put the wrong person in prison all those years ago? In a small town, where no stranger goes unnoticed, what is Natalie missing?

Consumed by the case, determined to prevent more deaths, Natalie misses the fact that it is her attention the killer wants. And to get it, he has his sights set firmly on her precious daughter Leigh…

Gripping, fast-paced and nail-bitingly tense, this book will keep you flying through the pages long into the night. Perfect for fans of Angela Marsons, Rachel Abbott and Karin Slaughter.  

My Review

Oh Carol Wyer what have you done to me with this book! It is simply outstanding and the best book of the entire series! I am going to struggle to write my review without giving spoilers, but there is one significant event in the book that is bound to take this fantastic series in a whole new direction and I can't wait!

The Blossom Twins is a superb, emotional and disturbing read. Carol Wyer is just an unbeatable force at writing this type of story. She has such an ability to create characters and plots that get me so invested in what is happening.

I love Natalie and her dogged determination to bring justice to the victims and their families. When a case she is working on becomes linked to one of her previous cases, she begins to question the outcome of that case. Natalie is struggling in her personal life and tries desperately not to let that interfere with her work. But someone seems to want her and her family suffer.

The Blossom Twins is an unputdownable addition to a series that I have absolutely loved. I am so eager to discover what Carol has to offer next, I am 100% sure I will not be disappointed.
