It’s #BooksOnTour day!!! A huge thank you to Carol & the Bookouture team for letting me be part of this. Carol’s new book, The Sleepover, was released yesterday!
The Sleepover by Carol Wyer
Genre: Crime Fiction, Police Procedural, Thriller
BUG Rating: 4.5/5
Overall: It’s kind of predictable now with Carol Wyer’s books … we know they are just going to be so freakin’ awesome! No exception with her latest novel, The Sleepover, centering around the latest case for DI Natalie ward! Boy OH boyyy.. does this one keep us on our toes! It’s got some ‘will they, won’t they ‘ factor along with a new gruesome case for Natalie and team to sink their teeth into. LOVED IT! I love uncovering a little more about each of the characters throughout the books. They now feel SO real, I just can’t wait for the next instalment
She said she’d gone to a sleepover. But she never made it. Someone must know why…
When Detective Natalie Ward is called to the home of fourteen-year-old Roxy Curtis she can’t help but empathise with Roxy’s distraught mother Cathy. Roxy hasn’t come home, last seen heading next door for a sleepover with her best friend Ellie. As the mother of two teenagers herself, Natalie knows that this is every parent’s worst nightmare.
But when Roxy’s body is found in the basement of a beautiful Victorian mansion on the other side of town, Natalie’s darkest fears are confirmed. What was Roxy doing there? The people who knew her best should know – but Cathy seems evasive, and Ellie refuses to talk. Natalie is determined to find out what secrets they are keeping…
Then Roxy’s mother Cathy disappears.
When her body is found two days later, Natalie is forced to face the fact that Roxy’s loved ones are in real danger. Things take a more sinister turn when Ellie vanishes, her mobile phone switched off. Is Ellie hiding something about the night Roxy died that could put her in terrible danger? And can Natalie work it out before another innocent life is taken?
+ More character development; getting to love (and loathe in some cases!) characters even more!
+ I love what an easy read they are. Yes they are gripping, and intense in parts BUT Carol does such a great job at just making them an easy read… the writing and flow is perfect.
+ The twists… I’d exchanged a few messages whilst reading this with Carol, and she hoped I didn’t guess the killer… she won’t be disappointed!
– I wanted MORE of Mike!
