Would I read more by this author? Yes
First off I want to say huge thank you to the publisher Bookouture, the author Karen Long , and to NetGalley for inviting me to join the blog tour for this book as well as letting me read and review it. Second thing is this is the first time I read anything by this author and it wasn't until I was already half way though it that I realized that I had the first book on my Netgalley TBR to read and review but that didn't stop me from enjoying the story as well as getting lost in it, but after reading this one I now can't wait to read the first one, and yes I know I'll be reading them backwards but that's me. There was just something about this story that I loved, and I can't wait to read more of this series ,
The little boy played with his toy trains in the bedroom, keeping quiet so as not to wake his mother. He stayed silent as he watched his window creaking open and heard the whisper from outside. A minute later, Tommy and the trains were gone.An unrelenting heatwave sweeps the country and starts a fire which uncovers the charred remains of a young woman. But when DI Eleanor Raven attends the post-mortem it reveals some disturbing details—the girl was dead long before the fire, her body had been lovingly preserved before being dressed up, her hair perfectly arranged, and a lime-green scarf knotted around her neck
With little evidence surviving the fire, Eleanor and her team have no solid leads. But back on duty after six months’ enforced leave, Eleanor is determined to prove herself fit for service, and she won’t accept that this case could prove impossible.Following a tenuous link to an old missing-persons case, Eleanor discovers the poor woman’s identity: Giselle Baker was a young dancer at a local bar before she disappeared two years ago, leaving behind a worried roommate and, concealed amongst her things, a curious wooden carving of a snake. Before Eleanor can uncover the significance of the toy though, another woman goes missing, and then, a little boy… It seems that someone is collecting a family for themselves
